Michelle Williams, Michelle Williams had a lot of pressure on her shoulders, portraying one of Hollywood’s most legendary sex symbols in “My Week with Marilyn,” but thankfully the actress didn’t realize that fact until after she had finished filming the movie.
“Because so many people have so many ideas about who Marilyn Monroe was and after a certain point in your research, you have to filter all the noise out and you have to pin something down and go, ‘Okay, this is my Marilyn. This is the way I see her. This is the way I interpret her.’ And I hope I do it justice,” Williams, 31, said in an interview provided by The Weinstein Company.
“Then of course, afterwards, now that it’s come out and it’s something that’s going to be talked about, then all of a sudden it’s like, ‘Oh what did I take on? She means so much to so many people!’” Williams added. “Now you feel the expectations. I didn’t really feel it before.”
“My Week with Marilyn” depicts the week that British writer Colin Clark, played by Eddie Redmayne, worked as Monroe’s assistant while she was filming “The Prince and the Showgirl” in the United Kingdom in the summer of 1956.
“I first saw him in New York, in a play called “Red” and when I saw it, I didn’t know what to make of him,” Williams said of Redmayne. “I didn’t know if he was American, I just assumed he was American and exactly the person that he played because he was so brilliant and then come to find out, he’s an English boy who went to Eton! Remarkably, there were some similarities between his upbringing and Colin’s [Clark] upbringing, but he’s incredibly versatile and what I saw him do in ‘Red’ is nothing like what I saw him do in this movie but his capacity and his talent in that play was incredibly overwhelming. I couldn’t imagine anyone better to play this part.
