Now that she’s back in Brooklyn after touring the world to promote The Dark Knight, Maggie Gyllenhaal has reached out to her neighbor Michelle Williams to arrange play dates for their daughters.

Maggie met Michelle and Heath Ledger’s little girl Matilda, who turns 3 in October, while filming the Batman sequel with Heath.

Now the actress, who is mom to Ramona, 22 months, hopes to keep the families close.

“She felt drawn to the little girl after he passed,” a friend of 30-year-old Maggie — whose brother Jake is Matilda’s godfather — tells OK!.

“She wants Michelle to know she’s there to talk to or watch Matilda.”

Meanwhile, on a recent trip to L.A., Heath’s family bought Dark Knight tees designed by Salvage from the Lisa Kline Men boutique.


When she spooted the Joker shirts, one of his sisters cried, “This is my brother on here — we have to get these!”
