We’re So Glad These Co-Stars Are Even Tighter IRL – E! Online

Forget Joey and Pacey, and Joey and Dawson, as a result of Williams and Phillipps have been the real love story of Dawson’s Creek. The actresses grew to become shut when Philipps joined the WB collection in 2001.

“Someone had said, ‘When you two meet, there is going to be a chemical reaction,’” Williams recalled in a 2018 interview with People. “I had been really excited for this girl to land in Wilmington. We became inseparable and I fell in love with her.”

And their time working collectively on the collection was formative.

“My memory of being with her then doesn’t have anything to do with the show or working, but it was on our time off,” Philipps advised Entertainment Weekly. “It was talking on the porch all night long and it was back when bread was still okay to eat. It was copious amounts of bread. That’s what I remember: an endless conversation over multiple bread baskets.”

In the years since Dawson’s Creek led to 2003, they’ve remained one in all Hollywood’s closest pair of pals, and it was Philipps who rushed to Williams’ Brooklyn row residence after her former associate Heath Ledger was discovered lifeless in his house of an unintentional overdose in 2008. 

“I said to her recently, ‘You have really saved me from ever being lonely because you are always right there,’” Williams advised People in 2018. “We are so close and can tell each other everything. I don’t know what I would be or who I would be without Busy.”

Philipps, who’s godmother to Matlida Ledger, was Williams’ go-to date to award exhibits for years, with every expertise reminding the duo how far they’ve come.

“I think for her, and for me too, to have each other by our sides as we go through this process, and when she’s been nominated, or on other red carpets that we’ve done together, or events, it’s just great to have somebody that can be your touchstone for reality,” Philipps defined to Elle. “Maybe I’m giving away a secret, but we always try right before we get to one of these red carpets to just look at each other and say, ‘Don’t forget how lucky we are. This is our life now.’”
