Michelle Williams talks big decision of tackling sexy Marilyn Monroe role

HollywoodNews.com: Marilyn Monroe is definitely considered sexy, which is what made it such a big decision for Michelle Williams to take on the role of the sex symbol in ‘My Week with Marilyn.’

Williams started her career with the sexualized role of Jen Lindley on ‘Dawson’s Creek,’ which had kind of turned her against playing that type, states UsMagazine.com. “I saw all the negative attention and connotations that can come along with that. And that those things can keep people from seeing you clearly,” Williams told ‘GQ.’

But, with Marilyn, she decided to take the chance: “When you play sexy you’re kind of playing just for men. That is something you have to police and turn it on its head. I mean, sexuality has been a part of my work, obviously…’Blue Valentine’…but it’s never been sexy. It hasn’t been beautiful.”

Do you think she did well with the role?
