Michelle Williams dreamed of being a boxer

Actress Michelle Williams desired to become a boxer when she was growing up and dreamed of taking on the former heavyweight champion of the world, Mike Tyson. The ‘Blue Valentine’ star says, “First I wanted to be a boxer. I don’t know why but I wanted to fight Mike Tyson. That was the dream.” Michelle quickly realized her ambition would not be realised, and turned her focus to acting instead. The 30-year-old, who has a five-year-old daughter with the late Heath Ledger, is now enjoying a successful film career.
