Michelle Williams has remained quite private about her relationship with indie musician Phil Elverum. The actress first revealed that she and Elverum quietly wed back in July in a cover story for Vanity Fair. Now, she's back on the red carpet with some new jewelry, a subtle, simple silver wedding band on her left ring finger to be exact. On Monday night, Williams showed off a glimpse of the ring at the Los Angeles premiere of Venom, a thriller, fantasy film that hits theaters this week. She wore a sparkly, silver dress with intricate lace details and no other jewelry besides her wedding band.
Take a closer look at the ring below.

Surprise: Michelle Williams had a top-secret wedding that nobody knew about until now. Williams shared the news in her new Vanity Fair cover story, revealing that she married singer-songwriter Phil Elverum in a small ceremony in the Adirondacks. Of course, you already know that Williams lost her former partner and father to her child, Heath Ledger, back in 2008. But Vanity Fair explained another backstory to her marriage that's quite the tearjerker: "Her new husband, an indie musician who records and performs under the name Mount Eerie (and, before that, the Microphones), also lost a partner in tragic circumstances while parenting a small child.
His late wife, illustrator and musician Geneviève Castrée, was diagnosed with inoperable stage-4 pancreatic cancer in 2015, four months after the birth of their daughter… Castrée died 13 months later, in July 2016, leaving Elverum with an 18-month-old daughter."
Williams also discussed Ledger in her new cover story. "When I ask Williams about this time, she makes a slight throat-clearing noise, as she does whenever the hurdle of a difficult subject presents itself," Vanity Fair writer Amanda Fortini said. Williams's response: "When you're a single parent, and that element of provider and protection is missing, it's scary."
