Michelle Williams' daughter Matilda will be helping her get ready for the Academy Awards on Sunday (26.02.12).

The six year old - whose father is the late actor Heath Ledger - will be accompanying her mother to Hollywood from their home in New York where she and Birdie Leigh, the three-year-old daughter of Michelle's friend Busy Philipps, will help their mothers prepare for Oscar night.

Busy told E! Online: "Both of our daughters will be around, that's always a little chaotic. The little girls like to see their moms get dressed up and then they don't want us to leave.

"Matilda's got all her family with her and my daughter will be with them and my husband. So I think they're going to be together. We'll have them have a little playdate. So cute."

Michelle - who is nominated for Best Actress at this year's ceremony - has previously revealed she is planning to take time out from her acting career to focus on being a mother

The 'My Week With Marilyn' star admitted she has "absolutely nothing" planned for the next few months and is keen to "go back to being a mom".

When asked what projects she is currently working on, she said: "Absolutely nothing. I hope to take some time off, I just want to go back to being a mom for a while."
