Health Ledger died at the age of 28 after an accidental overdose leaving behind daughter Matilda, whom he shared with Michelle.
Michelle, 36, also opened up about life as a single parent and the struggles she faces when it comes to parenthood and relationships.
“It’s hard to romanticize romance when you’re 36,” she says. “When you’ve been a parent for 11 years and you’ve done it alone, you don’t have romantic ideals, because you have a practical understanding that you can do it by yourself. The romantic idea of meeting your person and having a storybook family life that looks like the model you grew up with – that doesn’t really exist for me.”
“I’ve not gotten married because I have not had a person to whom I would — so I have not let my sense of conformity or duty override my instincts.”
