Michelle Williams Pictures and Quotes About Marilyn Monroe and Heath Ledger in Vogue Magazine October 2011

Michelle Talks Marilyn Monroe and Being Single in US Vogue

Michelle Williams covers October's US Vogue, and she's featured wearing the makeup, hair and costumes from her upcoming movie My Week With Marilyn. The Marilyn Monroe biopic is out in the US on Nov. 4. Inside the issue, Michelle speaks about the process of making the movie. Michelle also touches on more personal topics, like how she and 6-year-old daughter Matilda are faring three years after Heath Ledger's death as well as some thoughts on dating. Michelle confessed to being single despite an apparent romance with director Cary Fukunaga. She said:

  • On getting older: "I feel like something has changed for me, but it’s a new change, so it’s going to be hard for me to describe. Maybe it has something to do with turning 30. I don’t feel as shy or nervous or self-conscious. I have more confidence that I can handle what life brings me. I don’t feel scared to have an idea and express it. I feel giddy about it because it’s a complete transformation. It’s like I’ve found my voice."
  • On gaining weight to play Marilyn: "Unfortunately, it went right to my face. So at some point it became a question of, 'Do I want my face to look like Marilyn Monroe’s or my hips?'"

  • On healing after Heath's death: "Three years ago, it felt like we didn’t have anything, and now my life — our life — has kind of repaired itself. Look, it’s not a perfectly operating system — there are holes and dips and electrical storms — but the basics are intact . . . It’s changed how I see the world and how I interact on a daily basis. It’s changed the parent I am. It’s changed the friend I am. It’s changed the kind of work that I really want to do. It’s become the lens through which I see life — that it’s all impermanent."
  • On dating: "Relationships have always seemed very mysterious, and therefore worth exploring. I’m single, so it’s still kind of a mystery — a worthwhile mystery, one that I want to be on the scent of . . . I’m not lonely, and I think that has a lot to do with what’s on my bedside table rather than what’s in my bed."
