As human beings, we’re never satisfied and always seem to want what we can’t have — and it turns out celebrities are no different. Michelle Williams confessed in an interview with Hobo magazine that she’s a little over the whole Hollywood scene and has thought about quitting the entertainment industry altogether and finding a more normal occupation. She admitted to the magazine, “I often dream of quitting acting. Walking away and becoming a laundress or a sous chef or maybe writing other people’s love letters for a living. Clearly, I don’t like to be in charge. And thinking of quitting is just keeping going in disguise. When you have options, anything is bearable. It’s when a situation is inescapable that it becomes hell.”
The Hollywood actress has enjoyed a successful career since was she catapulted into the spotlight as a teenager in TV series Dawson’s Creek and has enjoyed a blossoming movie career since then in films such as Blue Valentine, Shutter Island, and My Week With Marilyn. So why is she thinking of leaving an industry that she appears to be thriving in? She explains, “It seems to me that as soon as you get good at something, it is a sure sign that it is about to walk out of your life because it ceases to hold your mind and creative energy hostage.” I suppose I can understand that to an extent, but that’s why so many actors/actresses try their hand at directing or producing. To go from a movie actress to a laundress seems a little extreme and not a very wise financial move. She does have children to support, after all. Let’s hope this is just some PR ploy to help promote her upcoming movie.
