Ana de Armas finds it “disgusting” that her nude scenes from the highly anticipated Netflix movie “Blonde” are likely to go viral online.
Blondebased on a fictional episode from the life of Marilyn Monroe, will debut on the streaming service on September 28.
talking to Diversity, de Armas was candid about what her reaction will be when the nude scenes hit the Internet. “I know it’s going to go viral,” the 34-year-old actress said as she made her first appearance on stage.
“And it’s disgusting. It’s just embarrassing to think about it. I can’t control it, you can’t control what they do and how they take things out of context. I don’t think it made me change my mind, it just made me feel bad about the future of these clips,” she continued.
The actress added that the film was outside of her comfort zone, but she did it for the film’s director Andrew Dominic and the iconic Monroe. “I did something in this film that I would never do for anyone else. I did it for her and I did it for Andrew,” she said.
De Armas shared that she devoted herself to portraying Marilyn Monroe and even visited her graveyard throughout the filming process.
“I couldn’t get rid of it. I couldn’t let her go. I went to her cemetery several times – I would like to do it again, ”she said.
Blonde was rated NC-17 (usually equivalent to the Australian ‘R’ rating), confusing de Armas.
Motion Picture Association of America generally gives a film an NC-17 rating if the film contains gratuitous violence, lewd sex, and/or nudity and strong language. The NC-17 rating differs from the R rating because minors under 17 are allowed to watch R-rated films in theaters when accompanied by an adult, but they are not allowed to watch NC-17 films at all.
Cuban actress doesn’t understand why Blonde received this rating by saying that she had seen films with much more obscene content.
“I didn’t understand why it happened,” she said in an article for L’Officiel magazine. “I can name you a number of shows or films that are much more explicit and have a lot more sexual content than Blonde.”
While she understands that there are explicit scenes in the film, she considers those scenes necessary to tell the story they were trying to tell in the film.
“In order to tell this story, it is important to show all these moments in Marilyn’s life that led her to what she did. It needs to be explained,” she said. “Each [in the cast] knew we had to go to uncomfortable places. I wasn’t the only one.”
De Armas previously appeared in Get the knivesWith Blonde this is her first major role. When her casting was announced, Monroe’s fans did not agree with the studio’s decision to cast her because she speaks English with a Cuban accent.
She didn’t let the criticism surrounding her accent affect her or add more pressure than she already felt, noting that one should feel the pressure to play such an iconic person. She further explained that her performance was not an imitation, but a way of giving an idea of the icon’s state of mind at the time.
“I’m proud of Andrew’s trust and the opportunity to make this happen. I feel that whether you’re a Cuban or an American actress, anyone should feel the pressure,” de Armas said.
The actress was supported by the Marilyn Monroe Estate agency, whose representative Mark Rosen spoke about this. Diversity that while the estate does not sanction the film, “Ana was a great choice for the role, as she conveys Marilyn’s charm, humanity, and vulnerability.”
Blonde will be released on Netflix on September 28 and will be the first film on the streaming platform to be rated NC-17.
