Michelle Williams Dreams of Becoming a Laundress

Oscar nominated Michelle Williams tells Hobo Magazine — I’m not even going to try and find out what that magazine is about because it’ll shatter the illusions I have of it being a magazine for the homeless — that she had an epiphany while watching a live stage show in Paris.

“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,” Williams reveals.

“Clearly, I don’t like to be in charge,” she explains. “And thinking of quitting is just keeping going in disguise.” — Us

I’m assuming she was high as that’s the only way anyone can get through a live stage show in Paris and it would explain her wanting to do people’s laundry for a living. The day a famous actor gives up living in the lap of luxury is the day the doctor declares them legally insane.

“When you have options, anything is bearable. It’s when a situation is inescapable that it becomes hell,” Williams tells Hobo Magazine. “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.”

So what Michelle is trying to say is acting will never walk out of her life. That’s… disappointing.
