Not sure Michelle Williams can pull off Marylin Monroe

09.13.2011by: Droz

When I heard Michelle Williams was picked for the Marilyn Monroe part in the up-coming MY WEEK WITH MARILYN, I was a bit confused. Michelle has certainly got the acting chops to pull off a historical figure like Marilyn. It's the looks area where I'm a bit torn. Not so say that Michelle isn't pretty. She can be quite beautiful when she wants to be, although a lot of her parts don't let her be that way. She's got a different kind of thing happening with her beauty though, as compared to Marilyn. Michelle has a kind of nymph-like quality about her, whereas Marilyn was bombastic and larger than life in her appearance.

Some of these pics manage to approximate Marilyn's look okay. I guess she can get close enough. Maybe the combination of that close enough look with Marilyn's distinctive voice will make it happen. Still, it's a bit weird to see Michelle all decked out like this. I tend to equate her with more natural appearances and characters. We'll see how it turns out when the movie opens in November.

Marilyn is all about the eyes. Young Sherilyn Fenn, hell yes. Michelle Williams? Well, looks like Marilyn with Downs.

Miscast

I like Willams but she's pretty in a "girl next door" kind of way, not in a "femme fatale" There's not a whole lot of those anymore (Christina Hendrix?).

I'm also starting to think that there's been too many biographies of Monroe already. She was interesting but not THAT interesting. Everything's been said.

Perfect for the role

Is she the spiting image of Marilyn? Of course not, and I dont think there is any actress who can be. Is she the best possible actress to portrait her with all her different labels, for sure.

Im not really excited about the movie itself, Im not sure about the screenplay and the director but Im totally confident about Michelle.

Michelle Williams was a great choice for the role . She's got the look that captures Monroe's innocence , which was far too fleeting , well done .

No

I've said it before, I'll say it again; Dying your hair platinum blonde, curling it and then posing like Marilyn does not mean you look like Marilyn and Michelle Williams does not. Williams is gorgeous in her own way, but that way has nothing in common with Marilyn.
