日本でも絶賛公開中の『マリリン 7日間の恋』、カツラにまつわる裏話

役者が役に入り込むには、技量以外のものを必要とする場合がある。例えば衣装やメイクが、役作りのプロセスで大きな部分を占めることだってあるのだ。少なくともミシェル・ウィリアムズはその理由を知っているはず。

新作『マリリン 7日間の恋』でマリリン・モンローに扮して高い評価を獲得し、アカデミー賞では最優秀主演女優賞にノミネートされたミシェル。彼女もまた、衣装部から助けを得た。『New York Times』紙によると、ミシェルはマリリンになりきるべく、4,000ドル(約33万円)のカツラを身に着けたそうだ。

ハリウッド映画が高価な小道具を使用するのは珍しくない。だが、なぜ女優本人の髪を使わないのだろうか? 長さに問題があるときもあれば(『New York Times』いわく、ミシェルの髪はマリリンを演じるのに短すぎたとか)、ほぼ毎日続く撮影の都合上ということもある。例えば、アクション映画『One for the Money』のキャサリン・ハイグルの場合は後者だ。

「キャサリンが演じるステファニー・プラムという役柄の設定上、髪を毎日カールしたり、メチャクチャにしなければならなかった。だけどそれはかなり骨の折れる作業だった。ステファニーはヘアモデルじゃないからね」と、キャサリンがかぶるカツラを担当したショーン・フラニガンは言う。「キャサリンの髪を毎日同じスタイルに保つよりは、カツラを使った方が楽だったんだ」
