London: Actress Michelle Williams, who is playing Marilyn Monroe in `My Week with Marilyn`, says she always liked the late actress because she was a "simple dresser".

"Something I really appreciated about her is what a simple dresser she was. She`s really, in her personal life, completely unadorned," quoted the 31-year-old as saying.

"Everything that she wore looked like she could take her shoes off and run through a field. And I like that," she added.

Monore, who became a sex symbol, died in 1962 of a suspected overdose of barbiturates. She was 36.
