Michelle Williams is set to portray Hollywood legend Marilyn Monroe in the upcoming film My Week With Marilyn, and on Wednesday we got this amazing sneak peek.

Looking as glam as can be, Michelle is most definitely pulling off the timeless Marilyn look (in our eyes at least).

While we think MW will kill it, tackling this role is a tricky task since Marilyn is still such a beloved icon. So, we took the debate to Facebook to see what our readers think of Michelle as Marilyn.

Jennifer S. didn’t hold back when it came to her response: “This is horrible!!! love Michelle..however, this should of been Scarlet playing Marilyn….their will be a lot of pissed off people because of this”

Brandee H. thinks Michelle will do Marilyn justice and said: “so gorgeous!!!”

Jorge P. thinks another Hollywood blonde should have taken on this role: “I say is cool but I was hoping for Christina Aguilera to play her(hopefully she gets a good acting teacher if she gets the part)”

Shirlene P. thinks there is one element missing when it comes to Michelle as Marilyn: “She’s too skinny to play the iconic Marilyn.Everyone knows she was curvy. That’s defeating the whole purpose.”

Angela H. is loving Michelle as Marilyn: “Perfect choice!! She looks stunning”

Such great feedback, let’s keep the debate going! Tell us your thoughts in the comments!
