Michelle Williams Calls Best Friend Busy Philipps 'the Love of Her Life'

Michelle William reminds us to take a moment to share the love for the ladies and gents who are always there for us: our best friends.

Actress Michelle Williams is doing the awards circuit with a very important person in tow: her best friend, Busy Philipps.

During a recent screening of her new film, Manchester By the Sea, Michelle paid a sweet tribute to her long-time pal.

"I'm here with my best friend," she told reporters. "I'm so in love with her. She's proof that the love of your life does not have to be a man! That's the love of my life right there."

 

 

Michelle and I like this picture of ourselves in a porta potty better than any red carpet pics we saw. So here you go.

Michelle, 36, and Busy, 37, have been friends since meeting on the set of Dawson's Creek, which premiered on TV screens a whopping 18 years ago. (Yes, we know. We are old.)

Busy recently posted a hilarious throwback photo of the two women, as they got ready to hit the town back in 2001.
 

"I love that we almost always stand on the same side of each other," she captioned. "Also, can I just say - we aren't at a costume party in 2001. That's legit how we were dressed for a regular night out."

Busy is also the godmother to Michelle's daughter, Matilda, who was born in 2005 during Michelle's high-profile marriage to Heath Ledger.
