Michelle Williams’ Most Unforgettable Film Roles (PHOTOS)

A birthday gallery to the hottest Williams of all
What makes Michelle Williams such a sought after A-list actress?

Is it her classic glamour that makes her perfect to play a screen legend  like Marilyn Monroe in My Week With Marilyn?  Or is it her emotional power in such films as Blue Valentine with some of the most gut-wrenching scenes in romantic movie history?

The answer is both — and more — because as Williams enters her acting prime, there seems to be no limit on what she can accomplish on screen… and unforgettable roles alongside heartthrob Ryan Gosling never hurt.

In the upcoming blockbuster Oz The Great and Powerful, Williams plays Glynda, a witch who watches over her people with care and love, only to see everything put in jeopardy by fantastical forces beyond her control.  Williams’ Oz co-stars include James Franco, Rachel Weisz and Mila Kunis.

In the gallery, above, we look back at our favorite Williams movie roles, each of which remind us why we love this blonde beauty.

Oz The Great and Powerful opens in theaters everywhere on March 8.
