In case you didn't know Courtney Stodden has become obsessed with Marilyn Monroe as of late. She's changed her style up a bit (goodbye nude lipstick and arm band) and does her best to emulate Marilyn's style and photo shoots on her Instagram. Now Courtney says she has taken more inspiration from Marilyn's career and has decided to follow the same advice that Monroe's own acting coach gave her and take risks in acting choices. This basically translated to Courtney shooting the above video for her revamped website.
"I've always admired actors who attempt to get "inside" their roles and actually seem to transform into the characters they portray," Courtney stated on her blog. "Charlize Theron's performance in Monster is a great example. Hillary Swank in Boys Don't Cry. Meryl Streep in Into the Woods. Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight. Eddie Redmayne in The Theory of Everything... While doing some research online regarding crack addicted prostitutes living on the streets of Oklahoma City, I was moved by one woman's story in particular. Afterward, I was inspired to see if I could ultimately do her justice by "playing" her in an acting scene. Thus, I created the character, "Tamra Munn"… and thought I'd share her with you."
