On the first day of filming Blonde, Ana de Armas and the crew made sure Marilyn Monroe’s legacy was honored. In an interview with Another magazine, de Armas told how they traveled to Westwood Memorial Park for a special occasion. “We got this big card and all the crew members wrote her a message,” the Gray Man actor said. “Then we went to the cemetery and put it on her grave. We kind of asked for permission. Everyone felt a huge responsibility, and we understood very well the side of the story that we were going to tell – the story of Norm Jean, the person behind this character, Marilyn Monroe. Who was she really?
Monroe, originally born as Norma Jean, was known not only as a dazzling icon of the 1950s and 1960s, starring in the films The Seven Year Itch and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, but also for her many struggles, which ended in a general too early death at a young age of 36 years (via Los Angeles Times). But the film’s team, even among early mixed receptionare confident in the story being told. As de Armas said Netflix queue“[Andrew Dominik] wanted the world to experience what it really feels like to be not only Marilyn but also Norma Jean. I found this to be the most daring, uncompromising and feminist take on her story I have ever seen.”
