Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe: First Look!

By: / October 8, 2010

Michelle Williams is getting her Marilyn Monroe on, y’all.

The former Dawson’s Creek actress is playing the iconic blonde in the upcoming biopic My Week With Marilyn, and The Weinstein Company released the first image of Williams as the ill-fated acting legend today.

The film, which began principal photography in London on Friday and co-stars Harry Potter star Emma Watson, chronicles a week in the life of Monroe as she abandons the Hollywood lifestyle in order to embrace British life with film producer and writer Colin Clark, played by The Other Boleyn Girl actor Eddie Redmayne in the film. (The script is based on Clark’s diaries.)
