Turning a new page! Sources reveal in the new issue of Us Weekly that Michelle Williams and author Jonathan Safran Foer are dating.
“They knew each other through mutual friends,” one insider says of the Brooklyn-based pair. “I’m not surprised that Michelle is attracted to him. She loves books. She reads almost every day!”
Indeed, the My Week With Marilyn star, 34, once told Nylon that her love of books was “consuming, or isolating, I guess.” She even admitted she had “walls in my apartment made of books." Adds the insider: “They’re two people in the same mind-set."
Safran Foer, 38, who wrote Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, was previously married to fellow author Nicole Krauss, with whom he split in 2014. The former couple share two children. And Williams famously dated Jason Segel, Spike Jonze, and the late Heath Ledger.
The Brokeback Mountain costars welcomed daughter Matilda in 2005. Now 9, the youngster is Williams' main priority. In March, the actress told Elle UK that she’s “so good at raising a kid” when she’s not working. “I don’t forget anything. I’ve got everything covered.”
According to a second source, everything for Williams is coming full circle. “With Jonathan, Michelle looks finally at peace and genuinely happy.”
