Man, Michelle Williams knows how to date some interesting dudes.
According to US Weekly, the actress 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, and they have two children together. Williams famously dated Jason Segel, Spike Jonze, and the late Heath Ledger.
According to a second source, everything for Williams is coming full circle. “With Jonathan, Michelle looks finally at peace and genuinely happy.
