“No one goes to a movie because Michelle Williams is in it,” a writer recently suggested on Twitter.
Sure. Let’s face it – Williams is just a has-been from some TV show in the 90s and we only know her because she was married to Heath Ledger right?
I’m sorry, but no one goes to a movie because Michelle Williams is in it. Mark Wahlberg is box office honey. https://t.co/ZJ2UyNBLJ5
