Williams Believed She Was 'Invincible'

Actress Michelle Williams did "stupid, crazy things" when she was growing up as an aspiring actress - but the experiences helped her prepare for the future.
Williams was so eager to pursue an acting career she distanced herself from her disapproving parents when she was 15 and left school in California shortly afterwards.
She shot to fame in 1998 when she appeared in hit teen show Dawson's Creek and her fame was further propelled by her role in 2005's Brokeback Mountain, for which she received an Academy Award nomination.
And now, aged 28, the actress can see she took a huge risk by branching out by herself to try to carve a career in Hollywood.
She tells Parade.com, "Hindsight. Isn't it great? The risks of going into L.A. at such an early age are huge.
"At the time, I was invincible. I thought I was on top of the world. I didn't realise what I was doing. But I wouldn't trade any of those experiences for anything in the world. I am who I am because of them."
She adds, "I had a lot of growing up to do and it was slammed into a couple of short years. I did stupid, crazy things. But those stupid crazy things prepared me to deal with future."
