IN REAL life she bears more than a passing resemblance to Mia Farrow, but Golden Globe winner Michelle Williams looks uncannily like screen siren Mariyln Monroe on the new cover of US GQ magazine.

The 31-year-old, wearing a platinum blonde wig and 1950s-inspired lingerie, bears more than passing resemblance to the late pin-up whom she portrays in the award winning movie.

Williams, who just scooped a 'Best Actress' Golden Globe for her performance in My Week With Marilyn, opens up about her relationship with the late Heath Ledger, with whom she has a daughter Matilda in the GQ interview.

“'Our initial meeting, the circumstances of how we first met, were cosmic,” she tells. “We had a lot of things to do, because we didn’t have a lot of time, or something,” she reveals.

In her acceptance speech at the Golden Globes, the actresses thanked her six-year-old daughter.

“I consider myself a mother first and an actress second, and so the person I most want to thank is my daughter, my little girl, whose bravery and exuberance is the example that I take with me in my work and in my life.”

The actress reveals to GQ that she would have liked to have more children with Ledger: “I really wanted, and I really expected or imagined, that Matilda would have siblings that were close to her age. I wanted that for her. But I couldn't make that happen.

“And now that she’s 6 that isn't even a possibility anymore. So something that was making me feel impatient, that's been removed. For whatever reason, that's not our luck, or our path.”

She was romantically linked to director Spike Jonze shortly after Ledger died, but their relationship ended.
