Big fat NO for all (except 4)

Absolute no to number 7!

Noo to 7!

Nope; I\'m not very convinced...

Initially I didn\'t think Michelle Williams would be good for Marilyn Monroe. But when I saw My Week with Marilyn, I was surprisingly well convinced. She really captured the essence of Marilyn and I was drawn into the character and had forgotten I was watching Michelle.

Absolute no to Jennifer Love Hewitt! That was not at all anything like Audrey Hepburn. It almost felt like a parody. :(
