Michelle Williams covers the March 2019 issue of British ELLE magazine photographed by Mariana Maltoni.
On social media: “I haven’t figured out how to use [social media] as a source for my own good. I haven’t figured out how to use it to find something inspiring or beautiful. I’m just not a techy person. I grew up on Ralph Waldo Emerson, Walt Whitman and Henry David Thoreau. They meant so much to me; they planted seeds and they’re sort of still there. Those seeds don’t really grow on the internet.”
Playing dress-up made her feel powerful and able to cope with change: “The idea of becoming someone else through an internal and external process hooked me at an early age. What does it feel like to put on a costume of somebody else? How do these clothes change me, how does this wig change me, how does this walk change me? As I’ve gotten older, that’s been the work I’ve been most interested in – the transformation, instead of repletion or endless self-replication.”
