Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe -- FIRST LOOK

Check out Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe from The Weinstein Company’s new film, My Week with Marilyn.

The flick, which will shoot for seven weeks at Pinewood Studios and on location in and around London, chronicles a week in the life of Marilyn in which she escapes the shackles of her Hollywood career and embraces life with Brit Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne).

Michelle stars alongside British stars Kenneth Branagh (Laurence Olivier), Judi Dench (Dame Sybil Thorndike), Dominic Cooper, Emma Watson, and Julia Ormond.

    This is an amazing all-star cast but there are too many actresses playing Marilyn Monroe in different projects. Poppy Montgomery in the television mini-series, Blonde, Michelle Williams in My Week with Marilyn, Naomi Watts in the forthcoming film, Blonde, Angelina Jolie was rumoured in The Life and Opinions of Maf the Dog, and of His Friend, Marilyn Monroe. I wish only one actress would play her in every project.

    I like Michelle, but I don’t think she’s right for the role. Scarlett Johanson or Deborah Ann Woll would’ve been better.

    I have seen drag queens who made a more convincing marilyn than michelle williams who is as sexy as a dry raisin. The casting director should be fired.

    I’m an avid MM fan and I think Michelle looks horrible as Monroe. Granted I don’t think anynoe can play MM close enough to make it look realistic, but this is just horrible. I’m appauled.
    If I could have had anyone play MM it would probably be Scarlete Johannsson as well just because she has that raspy voice as well.

    Michelle looks uncomfortable on camera in love scenes.

    With Heath Ledger and Ewan McGregor she seems uptight. I agree with most posters here she is better suited to something else.

    I thought Poppy Montgomery did an excellent job on the Lifetime Marilyn movie…and Ashely Judd on the HBO movie.

    Marilyn Monroe is one of the greatest icons of the 20th century. Michelle has got quite a task ahead of her.People love Marilyn (myself included) she better not mess this up.

    Anna Says:

    No one will ever be able to portray Marilyn,she really was one of a kind.Michelle Williams has about as much sex appeal as a couch ! A very strange casting choice,just terrible

    #12, Michelle’s not uptight with Gosling in Blue Valentine. The movie just received a NC-17 rating.

    I don’t like her expression in the picture, but maybe she’ll pull of MM in the movie.

    Not even close.Michelle is nothing compared to Marilyn.

    Roya Says:

    How many times are they going to make an Elvis or Marilyn Monroe film.

    Oh…She looks nothing like Marilyn! Her face is too full; her the lips wide, and really puffy eyes. I mean she’s attractive, but why can’t they audition a no name actress? I’ve seen tons of people who look like her twin.

    Roya Says:

    I’ve got it! They should’ve picked Christina Hendricks from Mad Men! I also agree that Deborah Ann Woll would make a great MM!

    uh Says:

    Its not so much the physical features, its more about the energy she’s projecting…Its all wrong…She looks like she has a headache and she’s supposed to be exuding sexy in that photo. :/

    Poppy Montgomery was definitely the best Monroe!
