The Daily Mail recently had a chat with Michelle Williams and got their hands on this new image of her portraying Marilyn Monroe in the upcoming film ‘My Week With Marilyn.’ The film is based on the diary of Colin Clark, who worked as Laurence Olivier’s assistant on The Prince And The Showgirl in 1956, and escorted the iconic actress around Britain after her husband, Arthur Miller, left the country.

Williams shed some light on her experience of immersing herself in the character:

‘I feel like we live together,’ the actress said, of portraying the iconic blonde in a new movie My Week With Marilyn that just completed filming at Pinewood Studios.

‘At a certain point, something else does take over. I don’t quite feel myself these days’

She also went on to say that she was initially reluctant to take the part, so much so she originally turned down the offer to play the blonde bombshell.

‘I knew I wouldn’t’ be able to resist, eventually. Physically and vocally, everything about her is different from me. I’ve kind of gone to school and had teachers to help me understand Marilyn, so I could project an essence of her.

‘When I first approached the part, I thought that there were three, even four parts to -Marilyn,’ she continued……There was the public Marilyn — the one Norma Jean would refer to as ‘her’, ‘as in the voluptuous, strike-a-pose “her” ’.

The biographical drama is directed by Simon Curtis and stars Williams as Marilyn Monroe, Eddie Redmayne, Kenneth Branagh, Judi Dench, Julia Ormond, Dougray Scott, Derek Jacobi, Dominic Cooper and Emma Watson.
