Michelle Williams - Michelle Williams 'Dreams' Of Quitting Hollywood

Michelle Williams, the American actress who plays Marilyn Monroe in the forthcoming biopic 'My Week with Marilyn', claims she often dreams of quitting the movie business. The 31-year-old rose to fame as a cast member of teen drama 'Dawson's Creek' before starring in the likes of 'Brokeback Mountain' and 'Blue Valentine'.
Speaking to Hobo Magazine, the multi award winning actress revealed, "I often dream of quitting acting.Walking away and becoming a laundress or a sous chef or maybe writing other people's love letters for a living. Clearly, I don't like to be in charge". In a frank interview, Williams suggested being successful at something is "a sure sign that it is about to walk out of your life because it ceases to hold your mind and creative energy hostage". Williams has twice been nominated for an Oscar - first for Brokeback Mountain and then for her role alongside Ryan Gosling in the R-rated 'Blue Valentine'. The actress has a 5-year-old daughter with the late actor Heath Ledger, who died in 2008 from an accidental overdose of prescription medication.
'My Week with Marilyn' is set to premiere at the New York Film Festival on 9th October 2011, before its full cinema release on 4th November. Williams is currently shooting the fantasy movie 'Oz: The Great and Powerful', with James Franco, Mila Kunis and RACHEL WEISZ.
