Michelle Williams will cover the February 2011 issue of Marie Claire.

She stars in Blue Valentine, so who better than Michelle Williams—wearing a rosy Valentino, no less—to grace the February cover of Marie Claire?

As Just Jared reports, the Dawson's Creek alum—seen putting our bright lips trend to good use—opens up to the magazine about how Reese Witherspoon helped change her perspective on being a single mother following partner Heath Ledger's untimely death.

Meanwhile, it sounds like Kate Winslet would be more than happy to provide Williams with some companionship.

"From a distance, I feel as if I’ve actually been having a secret love affair with Michelle," Winslet tells Marie Claire. "She and I are quite intimate in my fantasy friendship, built on admiration and respect. I’m talking about her acting, of course!”
