Michelle Williams Stuns as Marilyn Monroe on the Cover of Vogue
If there is anyone out there in Hollywood that I’m glad is getting more attention, it’s Michelle Williams. She is a great actress with artistic integrity, and I also just like looking at her.
The modern beauty is playing THE beauty Marilyn Monroe in the upcoming film My Week with Marilyn. The movie follows Monroe while filming The Prince and the Showgirl where Sir Laurence Olivier was famously not pleased with the actress’ behavior.
Williams on learning how to be Marilyn:
“I’d go to bed every night with a stack of books next to me,” she told Vogue. “And I’d fall asleep to movies of her. It was like when you were a kid and you’d put a book under your pillow hoping you’d get it by osmosis.”
On the power of being sexy:
“But I do remember one moment of being all suited up as Marilyn and walking from my dressing room onto the soundstage practicing my wiggle,” she says. “There were three or four men gathered around a truck, and I remember seeing that they were watching me come and feeling that they were watching me go–and for the very first time I glimpsed some idea of the pleasure I could take in that kind of attention; not their pleasure but my pleasure. And I thought, Oh, maybe Marilyn felt that when she walked down the beach.”
