Michelle Williams revealed her seven-year-old daughter Matilda believes she can recreate the magic powers she has as her role of Glinda the Good Witch in 'Oz the Great and Powerful'
Michelle Williams' daughter thinks she "can really fly".
The 'Oz the Great and Powerful' star revealed Matilda, seven - her child with late actor Heath Ledger - has been captivated by her mother's role as Glinda the Good Whitch and believes she can recreate the magic she did in the film.
Speaking to Stella magazine, she said: "I fly around in the bubble. My daughter thinks I can really fly ... Matilda went through a phase where she would go up to people in the park and say, 'My mummy is Glinda the Good Witch, she's a fairy princess'.
"My daughter thinks that I could do magic ... I wanted to bring some magic into our lives."
The 32-year-old actress - who is now in a relationship with Jason Segal - admitted she took on the role as a love letter to Matilda, adding they both "needed it" at this stage in their lives, particularly after Heath's death from an accidental overdose in 2008.
She continued: "I think this movie fell into my life at the right time. My daughter and I needed it. I wanted to make something my daughter would feel proud and excited about."
