Michelle Williams stopped by The Tonight Show studios in LA yesterday. The star of My Week With Marilyn spoke with host Jay Leno about her film, which has earned a great deal of praise for Michelle. She's picked up best actress nominations at the SAG, Critics' Choice, and Golden Globe awards so far. We'll find out on Jan. 24 if she can add Oscars to that list, possibly making it her second year in a row of being in the running for an Academy Award. Michelle spoke with Jay about the process of making her Marilyn movie. She admitted, though, that she didn't really try to harness Marilyn's legendary sex appeal in her own life. Michelle told Jay, "I stayed a little bit in character while I was making the movie. It makes it easier that way. I remember experimenting with it early on. What was it like to walk around like that? What were people's reactions to it? But no, I think I would have felt silly trying to pick up somebody at a bar."
