She may not know the extent of the actress’s fame, but Matilda Rose is well aware of mom Michelle Williams‘ recent role in Oz, the Great and Powerful.
“She’s starting to understand more and more. She knows a lot about Glinda the Good Witch, a lot about who that is, what that was,” Williams, 33, told The New Yorker‘s David Denby during the New Yorker Festival at the School of Visual Arts Theater on Saturday.
Matilda — who wants to step into Glinda’s sparkling slippers for Halloween — has no problem sharing Williams’ onscreen success with her playground pals.
“She would go up to people in the park and say, ‘My mommy is Glinda the Good Witch in Oz. There’s two bad ones and only one good one and that’s my mom,’” says Williams.
