How did Michelle Williams amass 16 million dollars?
I rarely hear of her. How did she amass such a fortune?
Her daughter inherited a shitload of money.
That's not much of a fortune. She's been acting for years, she should have at least that. She is likely B list, and should be pulling in at least 2-3 million a picture.
From being Beyonce's background dancer?
She was on a TV series for a while. If she hired a financial adviser back then, and kept up discipline, that sounds about right.
For doing a hit job on Heath Ledger.
t.v. makes actors rich. Movies, not so much.
She does small movies where she makes a million or so, and it looks like she lives fairly frugally for a celebrity.
Which Michelle Williams are we talking about?
The one who was in Destiny's Child?
Or the one who is a movie star?
My questions answer yours, no matter which question it is.
Rarely hear of her? Are you not on DL much? Do you ever watch tv or go to the movies?
She's bullshit, such a phony, haven't liked anything she's ever done. Druggy.

Her dad is a financial adviser and so is she -- she won some investment competition in Oz back when she was a teen
In Oz? As in Australia? She's from Kalispell, Montana.
Her father moved the family to Australia when she was a kid.
?? This information appears nowhere on her Wikipedia page. It says she grew up in San Diego and became emancipated at 15 to move to LA and get acting work.
Her father is a well-known tax protester whose been arrested for tax evasion before (at least once, that I can find reference to, in Australia), so maybe her Wikipedia page has been scrubbed of references to him.
Dawson's Creek royalties. It was the biggest show on earth for a short time (1999 - 2001)
R16,before Michelle joined the cast of "Dawson's Creek" she'd been doing some after-hours interning at a financial investment firm in between trying to get her license as a nail technician. Within the span of three months, she had moved with her dad from Romania, Switzerland, Abu Dhabi and Kurdistan, which made it pretty difficult to concentrate on her nail tech license. Her father was a semi-professional dog race gambler and moved the family seasonally, mostly because of a computer algorithm he'd programmed that had a 76% accuracy rating in predicting dog race outcomes by country. Long story short, they wind up in Australia, her next door neighbor is shot, she opens a black-market hospital in her basement, she never gets her nail tech license, but after doing a year in jail, rediscovers her love of finance through an extra-cirricular program offered at the halfway house she'd been living in at the time.
This thread got weirdddddddddd.
Didn't Heath leave her some money as well, for help in raising Matilda. I know that Matilda got money but can't remeber if Michelle got money as well.
That face is a living advertisement for MOON PIES. She gets royalties.
Hm, in an interview with Fresh Air last year she indicated that the Marilyn movie was a welcome chance to work. Said something like, 'you take what's offered'.
She hasn't done high-grossing films like Spiderman. She does low-budget stuff like, "Wendy & Lucy", "Blue Valentine" and "Meek's Cutoff".

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
