Michelle Williams Devastated By Edited Nightline Interview

Michelle Williams has taken aim at producers of a news show after seemingly bearing her soul about the death of Heath Ledger - insisting she found the editing of the interview "devastating."
The actress gave a candid and highly-publicized interview to "Nightline" show last month and revealed she pines for the year her ex-boyfriend died, because she still felt that he would re-appear in her life.
In the interview, she said, "In a strange way, I miss that year, because all those possibilities that existed then are gone. It didn't seem unlikely to me that he could walk through a door or could appear behind a bush. It was a year of very magical thinking, and in some ways I'm sad to be moving further and further away from it."
But the star is adamant her words were manipulated through clever cutting, claiming the interview lasted three hours but was edited down.
She tells The Daily Beast, "I just had an experience with Nightline that got edited in such a way that seemed as if I did go too far. It was a three-hour interview that was edited in such a way that was devastating to me.
"They used those few quotes and the way they edited the piece to sell the interview, and it appeared as if I were breaking some kind of silence and sitting down with the express purpose to discuss something that is very private to me."
