MILF Naomi Watts, who has two tots with longtime boyfriend Live Schreiber, is set to star as blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe in Blonde. The film is based on the book of the same name, which is a historical novel written by Joyce Carol Oates in 2000. Oates herself said that the tome is a work of fiction and should not be considered a biographical work on Marilyn Monroe AKA Norma Jean Baker.
The book charts most of Monroe's life.
Filming will begin in January with The Assassination of Jesse James helmer Andrew Dominik to direct. No word on who will play Marilyn's husbands Arthur Miller and Joe DiMaggio or her rumored love, JFK!
Do you think Watts is a good choice to play Monroe? Given her petite status, it seems like a stretch, but I'll suspend disbelief. She was good in Mulholland Drive, so perhaps this femme fatale role will suit her to a t?
