Michelle Williams Dreams of Being a Laundress

Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams hasn't always been enamored with the acting profession.


The 31-year-old actress told Hobo Magazine, "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. Clearly, I don't like to be in charge. And thinking of quitting is just keeping going in disguise."

She added that she likes challenges in her life. "When you have options, anything is bearable. It's when a situation is inescapable that it becomes hell. It seems to me that as soon as you get good at something, it is a sure sign that it is about to walk out of your life because it ceases to hold your mind and creative energy hostage."

Williams will next be seen as the iconic beauty Marilyn Monroe in the upcoming film "My Week with Marilyn," and is currently shooting "Oz: The Great and Powerful," with Mila Kunis, James Franco and Rachel Weisz.

Her daughter with the late Heath Ledger, Matilda Rose, will be 6 in October.
