Ana De Armas Marilyn Monroe

Ana de Armas Marilyn Monroe in Netflix’s ‘Blonde’ COURTESY OF NETFLIX

The Netflix biopic Blonde (2022), the Ana De Armas Marilyn Monroe, was based on Joyce Carol Oates’ biographical fiction novel of the same name. De Armas read Oates’ book, worked with a dialect coach for a year, and studied hundreds of images, videos, audio files, and movies to get ready for the part.

Both critics and viewers gave the movie sharply divided reviews; while de Armas’s acting got praise, the director Dominik’s detailed portrayal of Monroe’s life drew criticism for being exploitative and unethical.

It’s hard to hear these reactions, but you can always go back to what you experienced, and why you did it, and the reasons why you were attracted to the project. That is not going to change. You have the director, and you have other actors that you can always talk to. As hard as it is to hear when people don’t like your film, it is what it is. It was not a movie that was made to please people or to make people like it. It is a hard movie to watch.
