Michelle WilliamsMICHELLE Williams will transform into Hollywood legend Marilyn Monroe for her next movie role.

The former Dawson’s Creek actress, 30, will play the late icon in My Week With Marilyn.

The film chronicles the making of 1957′s The Prince And The Showgirl that starred Monroe and famed actor Laurence Olivier.

Also appearing in the Simon Curtis-directed film — which is set to hit theaters in 2011 — are a host of big-name British stars, including Emma Watson, Judi Dench, Dominic Cooper and Kenneth Branagh.

Williams recently admitted she has “self-loathing” and body issues.

“I have the usual self-loathing and body issues and yet I seem to be naked in a lot of movies,” she said.

“The nudity has to end somewhere. It would be really nice if the pictures did not get posted online. But then maybe that’s a reason to do it: Just get naked, and who cares if it ends up on the internet.”
