"I just had an experience with Nightline that got edited in such a way that seemed as if I did go too far," she tells The Daily Beast. "It was a three-hour interview that was edited in such a way that was devastating to me."
In particular, the aired portion of the conversation that focused on the death of Heath Ledger.
"They used those few quotes, and the way they edited the piece to sell the interview, 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," Williams says.
Her frustration, at least in part, no doubt stems from the fact that talking about Ledger's passing is still an incredible "struggle" for her.
"I experienced a lot of loss after his death," laments the actress. "I lost my city because of all the paparazzi descending upon us. I actually lost my journal during that time, oddly enough. I literally couldn't hold on to anything. It felt as if things were literally slipping through my fingers. Things were just streaming away from me. I lost my sense of humor. I'm still looking for that."
