Besties Busy Philipps and Michelle Williams celebrated Williams’s 37th birthday together in Boston over the weekend. The actresses dined at Legal Sea Foods in Park Square on Friday night, and were spotted walking in the Seaport district Saturday evening — and, if Philipps’s Instagram posts are any indication, they did so in style. The actress first posted a picture of herself — captioned “On my way to find my other half” — wearing a leather jacket emblazoned with a half heart outlining “BE FRI.” The heart and phrase “BEST FRIEND” were made complete in the follow-up shot of Philipps and Williams in their matching jackets; Philips wrote, “Found her. Happy birthday to my better half. I love you, M. You make everything better.”

Unfortunately, the night didn’t end so well for Philipps, who was admitted to Mass. General Hospital with terrible side pains. She shared on social media that she had ovarian torsion (a twisted ovary). Luckily, she’s OK and didn’t require surgery, but, on Instagram, she thanked the Mass. General doctors and nurses who took care of her. Williams and Philipps are in town for the filming of “I Feel Pretty,” a comedy starring Amy Schumer and Williams. Philipps’s husband, Marc Silverstein, is co-writing and directing the film with Abby Kohn. It’s slated to hit theaters next summer.
