Michelle Williams: Weight gain made me feel less nude in 'Blue Valentine'
Michelle Williams says she felt less naked while filming nude scenes for the new R-rated film "Blue Valentine" because she had put on some extra pounds.
The 30-year-old former "Dawson's Creek" actress and Ryan Gosling, 30, play a married couple whose lives from various time periods are shown throughout the movie. The film was initially given an NC-17 rating and was later reduced to an R after some explicit parts were removed.
"Well, the nude scenes were in the later part of the relationship so I had gained some weight and the pudginess I was feeling was almost like a costume, so it didn't really seem as if I were nude but some other person was," Williams told the Daily Beast website. "All that extra flesh ironically made me feel less nude."
Williams also recently filmed the movie "My Week With Marilyn", playing Hollywood icon and sex symbol Marilyn Monroe. The film depicts the late actress' 1956 film shoot of the movie "The Prince and the Showgirl" in London opposite Sir Laurence Olivier, who is portrayed by Kenneth Branagh and is due to hit theaters in 2011.
