Because every white actress with a SAG card has to terrorize the image of Marilyn Monroe by playing her, Michelle Williams is playing MM in that My Week with Marilyn movie and here she is in full MM drag on the cover of October’s (Happy Halloween!) Vogue. Yes, this is Michelle Williams AS Marilyn Monroe. It’s not a still from a Halloween episode of Dawson’s Creek where Jen is waiting for Grams to pick her up after Henry dumps her at a costume party or some shit. It’s very “Ahs juss sittin’ here waitin’ for my ride…. durp… durp…. durp… duuuuuuuuuuurp.”
Why couldn’t they get the other Michelle Williams (from Destiny’s Child) to play Marilyn Monroe instead?
