Michelle Williams tells Vogue magazine that although life has settled since the death of her former fiance, actor Heath Ledger, it's affected all facets of her life.

The 31-year-old actress said in the magazine's October issue that experiencing loss has changed her daily interactions, career, and how she acts as a parent and friend.

Williams plays Marilyn Monroe in the film "My Week with Marilyn." It's about a week of Monroe's life in 1956 while filming "The Prince and the Showgirl."

Williams said she tried to gain weight for the role to have some of Monroe's famous curves but it all went to her face. She opted instead for padding.
