Here’s the first official pic of Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe in My Week With Marilyn directed by Simon Curtis. The film follows Marilyn’s “friendship with young Englishman Colin Clark while in the country shooting The Prince and the Showgirl, as well as her tempestuous relationship with director/co-star Laurence Olivier.” Oooo sounds spicy. I hope the two Englishmen find out about each others’ tryst with Monroe. They’re bound to have a fiery polite exchange of words. Someone might even get slapped with a glove.
So what do you guys think? Does Williams make a good Monroe? She’s not quite as thick as the official blonde that gentlemen prefer, but I can see her embodying the role quite well.
