Cianfrance: 'Williams will be incredible as Monroe'
Director Derek Cianfrance is confident Michelle Williams will stun fans with her forthcoming Marilyn Monroe biopic - because the actress often reminded him of the sultry star while shooting Blue Valentine.
Williams is currently working on upcoming drama My Week With Marilyn, about the making of the blonde bombshell's 1957 movie The Prince And The Showgirl.
And Cianfrance, who directed Williams in Blue Valentine, is convinced the Oscar-nominee will do the role justice - because she channelled Monroe while shooting sex scenes with actor Ryan Gosling in their movie.
He tells OKMagazine.com, "There's scenes in this film (where) Ryan and her were on the floor of this bathroom doing this sexual scene and I (was) like, 'She looks just like Marilyn Monroe here.' She'll be incredible. She's got something inside of her that has the same power (as Marilyn Monroe)."
