Check out what Michelle Williams had to share with mag:
On the role couldn’t have arrived at a better time: “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 deciding to play role of Marilyn Monroe: “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 trying to gain weight to prepare for the role: “Unfortunately, it went right to my face. So at some point it became a question of, Do I want my face to look like Marilyn Monroe’s or my hips?”
