Marion Cotillard on Michelle Williams in ‘My Week with Marilyn’

SAG Preview 2011: Actors on Actors

Michelle Williams’ portrayal of Marilyn is not an impersonation, she eloquently depicts the all-encompassing layers of the woman who has captivated the world even 50 years after her death. Michelle embodies this challenge with a mysterious attraction all her own and yet still so Marilyn in complexity and depth. Rather than further push Marilyn’s sexual aura, Michelle captures the very essence of the life we missed — the life we can’t see in pictures. Michelle’s representation of Marilyn’s vulnerability, allure, humor and often childish demeanor reveals the inner struggles and the reality of the icon’s multi-layers as Marilyn Monroe and Norma Jean. I admire Michelle’s ability to give life to each aspect of this faceted character, while embracing the confidence and whimsy of an actress who left such an indelible impression in cinema.”
