Michelle Williams Will Play Marilyn Monroe — Is this Movie Necessary?
Am I the only person on the planet that doesn’t feel a personal connection to Marilyn Monroe? I don’t get it. Sure, she was great. But does that mean that every celebrity has to pose as her, and movies have to be made about her life? Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Kidman already copied a Marilyn Monroe photo-shoot, and Megan Fox has her picture tattooed on her arm. And the great Paris Hilton once proclaimed that she’s the “Marilyn Monroe of today’s generation.” Okay — that last one just made me laugh. So when I heard that Michelle Williams was cast in a new Monroe biopic, I skipped over the blogosphere questions about whether she could pull it off, and asked myself whether it should be made at all.
