Michelle Williams, Spike Jonze have broken up



Tbd-michellewilliams092109 Michelle Williams has learned the hard way that the first guy after losing your man is just the rebound guy: She's broken up with director Spike Jonze, the actress tells Vogue.

"The timing was impossible," Heath Ledger's ex said. "I thought falling in love again was the only thing that was going to save me from the pain. This erroneous idea: It just makes things more complicated."

Williams also says having a three-year-old daughter (Matilda, whom she parented with Ledger) made life difficult, as well.

"I obviously don't know how to do it, she said. She and Jonze met on the set of Synecdoche, New York in 2007, a few months before she split with Ledger in September. Ledger died in January 2008. We imagine the implications of that would make the dating scene difficult.
