"I just wake up each day in a slightly different place—grief is like a moving river, so that's what I mean by 'it's always changing'," she told the mag.

In Michelle's case, the grief has definitely not lessened with time. "It's a strange thing to say, because I'm at heart an optimistic person, but I would say in some ways it just gets worse. It's just that the more time that passes, the more you miss someone. In some ways it gets worse. That's what I would say."

Michelle also goes on to say that the constant attention on her personal life may be too much for her to handle. "If it gets to the point where I can't situate my life in a way that they stay away more, then I'll drop a match on the thing," she said. "I'll be sad. I like to act. It's saved my life over and over again. It's given me a sense of self-esteem, self-worth. I have this thing that I'm in love with—acting—and now it has this baggage."
