    Default Michelle Williams - Vogue - October 2011




    On not being as guarded during interviews: “I feel like something has changed for me, but it’s a new change, so it’s going to be hard for me to describe. Maybe it has something to do with turning 30. I don’t feel as shy or nervous or self-conscious. I have more confidence that I can handle what life brings me. I don’t feel scared to have an idea and express it. I feel giddy about it because it’s a complete transformation. It’s like I’ve found my voice.”
    On how daunting playing such an iconic figure was: “As soon as I finished the script [for My Week with Marilyn], I knew that I wanted to do it, and then I spent six months trying to talk myself out of it. But I always knew that I never really had a choice. I’ve started to believe that you get the piece of material that you were ready for.”
    On gaining weight to approximate Marilyn’s curves: “Unfortunately, it went right to my face (puffs up cheeks to illustrate). So at some point it became a question of, Do I want my face to look like Marilyn Monroe’s or my hips?” (She opted for the former and filled out the latter with foam padding.)

    Ok, I'll say it: I think she looks awful as Marilyn. WTF?

    She's looking more Lana Turner than Marilyn Monroe in the cover shot.

    Better than Lohan's Marilyn. But I guess that goes without saying.

    She doesn't look like Marilyn at all. I always thought that Marilyn had very sweet and feminine facial features.

    She looks more like Mira Sorvino did in her movie trying to play Marilyn than Marilyn herself. I know the idea is to capture the essence of Marilyn and not be a dead ringer, but this just isn't doing it for me. I'll probably watch the movie to form a real opinion, but I'm not feeling the Marilyn vibe at all.

    who cares that she's not an exact copy of marilyn - no one is an exact copy of anyone else. contrary to a lot of actresses out there, michelle is a terrific actress. cate blanchett doesn't look like bob dylan either but she did a hell of a job. transforming yourself into a character is more about acting than it is about whether or not your features are exactly the same.

    She looks more like LeAnn Rimes than Marilyn Monroe.

    i love the second and the last picture.

    i don't think michelle is that great of an actress, so since her performances are usually kind of wooden (which is good for certain characters like the one she played in "brokeback mountain") i don't think she's gonna pull this off. i always thought scarjo should play marilyn.

    Yeah, true, MW is kinda over-rated. It's always suspicious when these actors talk about how much work they pour into a role. To me, that means they must suck at acting then.

    Well, no one's gonna look like Marilyn, that's a given. Michelle wouldn't be my choice, but as long as she does the part justice, who cares.
