Actress Michelle Williams is taking a break from Hollywood.

The Brokeback Mountain star's latest movie Oz the Great and Powerful is due for worldwide release in March and Williams hasn't stepped foot on a movie set since wrapping the fantasy film.

Williams admits she is already enjoying the hiatus.

"I haven't worked since I made this movie, which is over a year ago," she told E! Online.


"Really I don't know (what is next), I don't know. I'm really happy to not have anything looming - except my hair. I'm really working on my hair growing out.

"I think I'm ready. It's on its way, slowly but surely. I think I'm ready. That's why I've stayed with short hair for so long - the mid-stage is insufferable. It's really hard on your self-esteem."

The blonde beauty previously admitted she kept her pixie cut in honour of her late fiance Heath Ledger, who died in January 2008, insisting, "I cut it for the one straight man who has ever liked short hair and I wear it in memorial of somebody who really loved it."
