The actress admits being a mom can be exhausting.


Michelle Williams is dating your literary crush, author Jonathan Safran Foer, reports Us Weekly. According to the publication, the couple first bonded through their love of — surprise, surprise — books and writing.

“They knew each other through mutual friends,” an insider says of the actress and the Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close novelist. “I’m not surprised that Michelle is attracted to him. She loves books. She reads almost every day!”

The source adds, “They’re two people in the same mind-set.”

Williams, 34, was previously linked to Jason Segel and Spike Jonze. The My Week With Marilyn star has a nine-year-old daughter, Matilda, from her relationship with the late Heath Ledger.

Safran Foer, 38, has two children — Sasha and Cy — with fellow author and ex-wife Nicole Krauss.

And it certainly seems like the twosome are close to finding that happily ever after. Another source adds, “With Jonathan, Michelle looks finally at peace and genuinely happy.”
