演技派女優ミシェル・ウィリアムズが語る、女優業の本音

『ブルーバレンタイン』や『ブロークバック・マウンテン』でそれぞれ、アカデミー賞の主演女優賞、助演女優賞にノミネートされるなど、その演技が高く評価されているミシェル・ウィリアムズ。そのキャリアは誰が見ても順調そのものだが、どうやら、彼女なりに思うところがあるらしい。

11月には今なお世界中で愛されるセックス・シンボル、マリリン・モンローに扮した話題作『マリリン 7日間の恋』も全米で公開されるミシェル。彼女はアート&カルチャー雑誌『Hobo』とのインタビューで、次のように答えている。

「しょっちゅう、女優を辞めようと考えているわ。(ハリウッドに)別れを告げて、洗濯屋や厨房での下働き、それかラブレターの代筆屋を生業にしようとね。自分が責任のあるポジションにつくのが嫌だっていうのが、わかるでしょう? 女優を辞めるっていうのは、何か別の人間になるってことよ。選択肢があれば、何でも起こりうる。逃げるに逃げられない状況っていうのは、地獄よね。何かで上達すれば、それは止める潮時だと思うの。物事が上手にできるようになれば、自分の中にあった、何かを生み出すエネルギーも消えてしまうからよ」

ミシェルが「しょっちゅう」と言っているように、彼女が女優を辞めようと思ったのはこれが初めてではない。『ブロークバック・マウンテン』で共演し、一時は私生活のパートナーでもあったヒース・レジャーが急死したときもそうだった(ミシェルは彼との間に、愛娘をもうけている)。彼女はヒースの死後、パパラッチの執拗な攻撃にかなり参っていたのだ。

だが冒頭でふれた事実が証明するように、決して派手ではないものの、ミシェルの演技には人の心を打つ何かがある。ファンとしては、次はどんな作品で観客の心をつかむのか期待している。
