I have to admit, I am not that charmed by MM, yes, she was gorgeous, could sing, and had this wonderful bubbly personality that everyone admires. I think that with MM it’s either you love her, or you don’t, but I have somehow managed to fall into the “meh” category.
To be 100% honest with you, I am a lot more interested in Michelle Williams, who gets to play her in the movie. I remember her back when she starred in Dawson’s Creek. That was one cute TV show. And to me, she resembled MM even then. I guess Hollywood has finally noticed that too!
A lot of people are being judgmental, saying that they should’ve had another week or two of castings, but I think MW is a perfect fit. And maybe they put a birthmark on the wrong side of the face, it’s just a movie, and no one is trying to give you a new MM.
I loved MW’s Vogue interview, her honesty about not being able to replace MM’s curves, and the fact that she had to eat ice cream for breakfast every day. To me, that is the worst thing about being an actress. I remember when Renee Zellweger had to put on pounds for her part in Bridget Jones, and that thought alone gives me nightmares. I know she lost it all afterwards, but still.
I am going to watch this movie, and I am getting excited for it, because they will be showing vintage clothes, and giving a sneak peak into the lifestyle of 1950′s. I hope they do a really good job at that!
If you’ve missed the Vogue Interview, I suggest you still look through the slideshow. But if you are too lazy to do even that, here are some of my favorite pics!
Happy Saturday everyone!
