Emma Watson 'relates to Marilyn Monroe'

Monday November 21, 2011

Emma Watson has said she can "definitely relate" to iconic actress Marilyn Monroe.

Speaking at the London premiere of My Week With Marilyn, Emma, 21, who plays wardrobe assistant Lucy in the film, said:

"I certainly feel a lot for her and for what she went through.

"I think she was just trying to find her feet in the midst of this kind of crazy circus that went on around her, and trying to find some sort of balance and some sort of normality in her life, and I can definitely relate to that."

Emma said she was currently focused on her work at Oxford University, but she said of future projects:

"There are a lot of things that I'm lining up."

My Week With Marilyn, directed by Simon Curtis, stars Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe when she comes to Pinewood Studios in 1956 to star alongside Sir Laurence Olivier in The Prince And The Showgirl.
