Michelle Williams has joked that her role in Oz the Great and Powerful showed her why women have "liberated" themselves from corsets.

The actress has discussed the costumes she wears in the Disney movie Oz the Great and Powerful.

In the film Michelle plays Glinda the Good Witch of the South - a role that required high heel shoes and corsets.

"There's a reason we women liberated ourselves from corsets," Michelle laughed to the UK edition of Glamour magazine.

"The dressing up is exciting for the first couple of days when you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror and you've got all this hair and there's glitter on your eyelashes and look like a bride, but after the first week, when you're trying to avoid flying baboons in a pair of high-heeled boots..."

The 32-year-old American star continued to discuss her status as a style icon. She prefers comfort over fashion when she is off duty and at home with her daughter Matilda.

While she loves acting, in reality she is nothing like her on-screen personas.

"But you know, I'm not complaining [about the wardrobes on the sets of my movies] it goes along with the territory and I love what I do," Michelle explained.

"[For example what I'm wearing today] oh, this is all borrowed. I mean, where would I go to wear these? I have no reason to wear these. Usually, I like to wear my slippers out."
