Philipps, 39, who is godmother to the pair’s daughter Matilda, writes in her book that she had a feeling her friends would one day reunite. “He and Michelle were in the process of separating at that point, and I felt sad for both of them but weirdly like something would be figured out and it wasn’t the end of the story for them,” Philipps writes. Busy Philipps Says She Was Raped at Age 14: ‘It’s Taken Me 25 Years to Say Those Words’ “They were so young and that baby was the light of both of their lives,” she continues. “They were just working all the time and it was complicated.” “S— is always complicated. Especially when you’re twenty-eight. And movies stars. With a baby,” Philipps adds. Ledger and Williams dated for three years after meeting on the set of their 2005 film Brokeback Mountain. The two split in 2007.
