First Look: Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe

I’m declaring today officially Michelle Williams Day here on Film School Rejects. I doubt anyone will object, as Ms. Williams has been an object of our affection for quite some time. Above you see the first look at Williams as Marilyn Monroe in Simon Curtis’ My Week with Marilyn. She’s one of two top-level actresses who will play the iconic dame, the other being Naomi Watts. The film is currently shooting at Pinewood Studios and in and around London. It follows the story of Colin Clark, a 23-year old assistant who spent an uninhibited week with Monroe during her time working on The Prince and the Showgirl in 1956. As you can see, the first image of Williams accurately captures both the beauty and the distance that defined the look of Monroe.

The wait for a first look at Naomi Watts’ Marilyn begins now. [via Coming Soon]
