8 Famous Actresses Who Have Portrayed Other Famous Actresses

6 min read

The job of an actress is to pretend to be fictitious people. But every once in a while an actress will take on the role of a real person who pretended to be fictitious people. What we’re trying to say is that it is awesome when an actress is able to get into the role of iconic actress from the past whom we still hold so dear. Sometimes it works out and sometimes it fails, but either way here is a look at eight actresses who have (somewhat) recently portrayed actresses from the past.



Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe – My Week with Marilyn (2011)
Picking somebody to play Hollywood’s most iconic sex symbol couldn’t have been easy, but Williams turned out to be the right move: she went on to win a Golden Globe for Best Actress as well as an Oscar nomination.



Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly – Grace of Monaco (2014)
Given their equally elegant looks, it came as no surprise when Oscar winner Kidman was chosen to portray the American-born Oscar winner Kelly, who gave up acting when she married Prince Rainier in 1956. For her efforts, the former Mrs. Tom Cruise was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award.

Sienna Miller as Edie Sedgwick – Factory Girl (2006)
This film saw Miller playing the troubled actress and socialite Sedgwick, who was known for associating with pop art extraordinaire Andy Warhol. Although the movie was thoroughly panned by critics, Miller’s acting was seen as the lone bright spot. Consequently, Miller would go on to portray an actress who had starred in several Alford Hitchcock movies. So maybe the whole “actress playing an actress” thing is Miller’s calling!
