It seems Michelle Williams isn’t quite done playing the role of Marilyn Monroe. In the February issue of GQ, Williams poses as the famous Hollywood actress both on the cover and the inside spread. In the interview she reveals how her new found sexy roles affect her and how life is with her daughter.
Michelle Williams is just coming off her big win at the Golden Globes for her film My Week With Marilyn and it seems we are seeing a whole new side of her. The actress strips down to reveal a seductive side but doesn’t see herself as that. “I wouldn’t say that would be one of my first qualities as a human being – being sexy. And I think because my character on Dawson’s Creek was sexy…sexualized…sexual…I saw all the negative attention and connotations that can come along with that. And that those things can keep people from seeing you clearly,” she told GQ.
The actress went on and opened upabout her daughter, Matilda, whose father is the late Heath Ledger. “I really wanted, and I really expected or imagined, that Matilda would have siblings that were close to her age. I wanted that for her. But I couldn’t make that happen. And now that she’s six, that isn’t even a possibility anymore. For whatever reason, that’s not our luck or our path.”
As for her past relationship with Ledger there has always been the thought of “what if” lingering in the back of people’s minds. In the interview it shows that her love for him has not disappeared since that fateful January day in 2008. When asked if she thought there was ever a possibility of rekindling their romance she replies, “That would make me way too sad to answer.” But after an extended pause, “I said it would make me too sad to answer, but it’s also…one of my favorite things to imagine. Nothing has turned out like I expected it to. Some things have been better, and some things have been much, much, much worse.”Tags: GQ, GQ magazine, heath ledger, Michelle Williams, Michelle Williams Marilyn Monroe, My Week With Marilyn
