Actress Michelle Williams’ performance as the troubled star at the brink of superstardom in My Week With Marilyn earned her not only an Oscar, but also a Golden Globe for her performance.
“I have always been drawn to Marilyn, but that doesn’t make me special in any way. She has that magnetism and that draw for so many people, so I read about her when I was young, devouring biographies. I’m most interested in her life before she became Marilyn. For me, the interest wasn’t so much in this larger-than-life personality.
