Williams dreams of the quiet life
Michelle Williams has revealed she has considered getting out of showbusiness.
The Oscar-nominated actress, who next stars in My Week With Marilyn, says she has even thought about taking up a job in a launderette or restaurant kitchen.
"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," she told Hobo magazine.
"Clearly, I don't like to be in charge. And thinking of quitting is just keeping going in disguise," added the 31-year-old.
Mother-of-one Michelle - who received nods for her performances in Blue Valentine and Brokeback Mountain - was inspired by the idea after working with British actor Toby Jones and watching productions by Complicite, Simon McBurney's theatre troupe.
"I felt like I had the sleep rubbed out of my eyes. It seemed like a new horizon for me," she continued.
"What these guys are up to is as foreign as another language to me. I'm mystified and utterly curious. What a lovely feeling of renewal. I've been acting for 20 years and watching them work I'm eight years old all over again and watching my first play for the first time."
