The trailer for ‘Blonde’ showed us Ana de Armas as a clone of Marilyn Monroe. Since the first images began to appear, the resemblance they have achieved between the two actresses is spectacular, and every time we see new photos of Ana de Armas as Marilyn we are even more surprised. But there are those who do not think it is enough.
With the release of the first trailer there were several criticisms on social networks because several viewers still notice the actress’s Cuban accentsomething that according to them takes them out of character and breaks the barrier of disbelief eliminated the magic of “really seeing Marilyn”.
De Armas previously told The Times of London that he spent almost a whole year working on his monroe accent for ‘Blonde’ before filming began. “It took me nine months to train my dialectics, practice and some ADR sessions [para lograr el acento correcto]. It was a great torture, very exhausting. my brain was fried”.
However, as we said, not everyone is satisfied with the result. The good news for the actress is that the owners of Marilyn Monroe’s estatewhich we can assume are the most authoritative voice on the subject, they have come to his defensea. And that the film does not have the authorization of the heirs of Monroe.
“Marilyn Monroe is a singular icon of Hollywood and pop culture that transcends generations and historysaid Marc Rosen, president of entertainment for Authentic Brands Group (ABG), owner of the Marilyn Monroe estate. “Any actress who steps into that role knows that she has big shoes to fill. Based on the trailer alone, it looks like Ana was a great casting choice as she captures Marilyn’s glamour, humanity and vulnerability.. We can’t wait to see the movie in its entirety!”
Another that was clear from the beginning was Andrew Dominik, the director of the tape. “I only had to audition for Marilyn and Andrew was like, ‘That’s you,’ but I still had to audition for everyone else,” de Armas told Vanity Fair. “The producers. The money people. There are always people I need to convince. But she knew she could do it. Playing Marilyn was groundbreaking. A Cuban playing Marilyn Monroe. I wanted it so much. You see that famous photo of her and she’s smiling at the time, but that’s just part of what was really going on at the time.”
Netflix to release ‘Blonde’ worldwide next September 28.
