Michelle Williams, the 42-year-old actress, has recently talked about her experience of feeling “frozen” after her Oscar nomination for her role in Brokeback Mountain in 2005.
During an appearance on Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist, Michelle Williams shared how she felt creatively destabilized and unsure of what to do next after receiving attention from the film.
Before Brokeback Mountain, Williams didn’t feel like anyone was paying attention to her. However, the attention she received after the film was unsettling, and she found it challenging to figure out what to do next creatively. She explained how the attention made her worry about making mistakes and what would happen to her.
Despite this, Williams has gone on to receive four more Oscar nominations, including for her roles in Blue Valentine, My Week with Marilyn, Manchester By The Sea, and The Fabelmans. She is grateful for the opportunity to work with Steven Spielberg in his upcoming movie, where she plays his mother, whom he loved dearly.
