Michelle Williams embraces red carpet evolution

Michelle Williams loves looking at her old red carpet pictures.

The 36-year-old actress admits she always seemed out of her depth at glitzy events in the early days of her career, but she enjoys looking back so she can see how much she has changed and grown up.

She said: ""I like feeling like I've grown up.

"I like having acceptance for both ways of being, but wow, those early red carpets were... I sort of look like, um, you know when you see a deer on the highway or something, and it's just sort of like poked out of the forest, and it's like, 'What? Where am i? What's going on? This doesn't look... I'm not supposed to be here!"

And the former 'Dawson's Creek' star - who has a 10-year-old daughter, Matilda, with late ex-boyfriend Heath Ledger - even carries around one of her first ever formally-dressed pictures in her wallet because she has "so much sympathy" for how "bad" she looked back then.

She admitted to People magazine: "I found this picture recently, and it's of some school dance or something that I went to, and I... look... so... bad.

"But I put it in my wallet, and I carry it around with me because I have so much sympathy for that girl and that's probably what I looked like at maybe, you know the first red carpet that I went to, just really, really out of my depth."
