Michelle Williams, Monroe-Esque For Vogue

Michelle Williams, of Dawson’s Creek and Brokeback Mountain fame, appears in the October 2011 issue of Vogue Magazine channeling Marilyn Monroe.

She talks about her new movie, My Week With Marilyn (also starring Emma Watson) and even the loss of Heath Ledger who fathered her daughter Matilda Rose Ledger.

Williams describes having to wear foam padding to replicate Monroe’s curvaceous body,

“I do remember one moment of being all suited up as Monroe and walking from my dressing room onto the soundstage practicing my ‘wiggle…'”

And on her ex-fiance, Ledger, who died at age 28,

Three years ago, it felt like we didn’t have anything, and now my life, our life, has kind of repaired itself. Look, it’s not a perfectly operating system—there are holes and dips and electrical storms—but the basics are intact.”

Introspectively adding,

“It’s changed how I see the world and how I interact on a daily basis. It’s changed the parent I am. It’s changed the friend I am. It’s changed the kind of work that I really want to do. It’s become the lens through which I see life – that it’s all impermanent.”
