Christian School Rejects Association With Oscar Nominee Williams
A Christian elementary and middle school in the San Diego suburb of Santa Fe that Oscar-nominated actress Michelle Williams once attended said Thursday that it does not wish to be associated with her. Williams, who is nominated for her role as the embittered wife of a gay cowboy in Brokeback Mountain, attended the school until she was 16 years old, when she won a role in the TV series Dawson's Creek. In an interview with the San Diego Union-Tribune, headmaster Jim Hopson said, "We don't want to have anything to do with her in relation to that movie. ... Michelle doesn't represent the values of this institution. ... We'd not like to be tied to Brokeback Mountain."
