Michelle Williams forthcoming film My Week with Marilyn must be opening shortly as she is the October cover star for US Vogue, all dressed up as Marilyn.
Photographed by Annie Leibovitz, I do love that they have replicated one of my favourite 'Marilyn reading' shots, but what do you think of the photos? I can see a bit of a resemblance to Marilyn in the photograph of her dancing in the park, but otherwise I don't think that Michelle looks anything like her really. She's a beautiful woman in her own right, but utterly different.
Having said that, while that may matter in a photo-shoot, I don't necessarily think it will matter in the movie. As long as she gets the voice right, the walk right and the heart right, it could be good.
And the interview with Michelle is an interesting read. Check it out here.

Its her nose. Michelle's is pointy and Marilyn's was round. Drives me nuts. But I will still see the movie.

Thanks doll,

You are totally right. It is the nose.
