Michelle WilliamsMichelle Williams is reportedly dating film director Spike Jonze.

The couple first met when the former Dawson’s Creek star auditioned for his 2006 film Where The Wild Things Are. She turned down the offer of the role but the pair worked together on Synecdoche, New York last year instead.

Star magazine reports that the couple were spotted kissing outside his Manhattan apartment earlier this month, with an onlooker telling the magazine: “Michelle kissed Spike with a closed mouth on the corner of his lips.

“There was definitely a bit of caressing going on. She was clutching his arm. The body language was very romantic.”

Michelle split from fiance Heath Ledger in September last year before his untimely death in January. Spike was previously married to Sofia Coppola and dated Drew Barrymore last year.
