Hollywood beauty Michelle Williams has come a long way since her days on Dawson's Creek, with the stunning star now being regarded as one of the most talented actresses in the business. Once again, Michelle has impressed with her new movie Manchester by the Sea, although the actress has admitted that she is surprised by how well it has been received.
Williams said, "We certainly never thought it would come to this kind of an end. It's very rare for a movie this small to have found such a warm reception and such a wide audience - the chances are like lightning striking. I've made a lot of movies that are small and generally don't get seen but people are seeing (Manchester by the Sea) and responding to it favourably. It's a real surprise party."
During the course of her acting career to date, Michelle Williams has taken on some very interesting acting roles in some very impressive movie projects, landing herself three Oscar nominations, with a fourth expected for her role in Manchester by the Sea. Michelle has spoken about landing such great roles, claiming that she tends to take on projects by following her heart.
Williams added, "Whenever I've made good choices, it's a surprisingly un-thought out process. I try to follow my heart and my gut, and listen to a more instinctual response about what I want to make, rather than think about it too much or plot it out. (Strong female roles) might be what I'm drawn to, but they're not necessarily what I'm consciously looking for."
Manchester by the Sea has been out in the US for a few weeks now and will finally hit the big screen in the UK on January 13.
