Famous People Playing Marilyn Monroe

I saw Michelle Williams win  the Golden Globe for her portrayal of Marilyn Monroe.  It is amazing to see the transformation of a fairly famous person to a really famous person.


 I haven't seen the movie yet, but visually, Michelle Williams is striking. 

Maybe the performance helps.  But the trailer didn't grab me.  She isn't the first to fill those shoes.

Yes, Romy from "Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion".

Theresa Russell with a guy who looks like Albert Einstein.  Di'Maggio and McCarthy show up too.  There is also a really unsettling bathroom scene.

Misty Rowe of "Hee Haw" fame.

Even the mom from "Seventh Heaven".

Not to mention Madonna also gave it a whirl.

Sorry Material Girl, nice try, but you are no Marilyn.  There is something missing.  Marilyn Monroe has a unique energy that came across even her photos.  She glowed from within.

From glamorous shots.

To more laid back. 


Even on her wedding days. 

She even makes glasses look adorable.

She died too young.
