Willa Ford Paints Anna Nicole Smith In A New Light

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Some see Anna Nicole Smith’s life as tragic and tumultuous, but singer Willa Ford has another take on the blonde bombshell.

Ford – who is portraying Anna in an upcoming biopic of her life – admits she “fell in love” with the former Playboy centerfold after researching for the part and wants to paint Anna in a new light for audiences watching the film.

Says Ford: “Not everything about Anna’s life was tragic. She had ups and downs like everyone else and I wanted to be sure I didn’t embellish any aspects of her life just for the film. I wanted to keep it as accurate and realistic as possible.”

To get into Anna’s mindset for the role, Ford watched her movies, interviews, and The Anna Nicole Show.

But for a more personal insight, Ford talked to Anna’s stylists, friends, and diva designer Bobby Trendy about her life.

However, Ford chose not to talk to high-profile people like Larry Birkhead, Howard K.Stern, or Virgie Arthur because in her words, “I didn’t want them to alter my thoughts about Anna in any way.”

Anna Nicole is slated for release later this year.
