Ana de Armas recently decided to talk about the nude scenes in which he participated in the film in which he plays Marilyn Monroe called “Blonde“, a feature on Netflix. When talking about the scenes, the actress expressed disgust due to the fact that these scenes will likely end up going viral.
Based on the book of the same name by author Joyce Carol Oates, “Blonde” narrates a fictionalized version of the life of the then-deceased Hollywood star, with Ana de Armas as the main role of the plot.
The film, in turn, is written and directed by Andrew Dominik, who is best known for directing Killing Them Softly’s “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Cowardly Robert Ford”. In addition, the director also had the collaboration of Brad Pitt on board as a producer.
The film recently made its debut at the Venice Film Festival. At the time, the production received mixed reviews from experts, as well as a standing ovation from the audience with a 14-minute standing ovation.
What can be seen in the first trailer disclosed of “Blonde” is that there is a dark and very emotional atmosphere surrounding Monroe’s life. In addition, it is essential to highlight the performance of Ana de Armas, who sported the star’s iconic blonde hairstyle, as well as an impeccable American accent.
The film also features the following cast: Adrien Brody, Lucy DeVito, Garret Dillahunt, Sara Paxton, Bobby Cannavale and Julianne Nicholson in supporting roles, helping to bring together several significant individuals who have passed through Monroe’s life.
From this perspective, the film ended up earning the very rare NC-17 rating due to the film’s sexual content. The work, with the purpose of portraying Monroe’s life, ends up revealing a graphic rape scene that appears in Oates’ book.
In an interview that was granted to Variety, Ana de Armas said that the nude scenes will probably go viral. Thus, she expressed disgust due to the fact that the scenes could be taken out of context, possibly being something that will be out of her control.
About this, the actress stated:
“I know what’s going to go viral, and it’s disgusting. It’s disturbing to think about. I cannot control it; you can’t really control what they do and how they take things out of context. I don’t think he gave me ulterior motives; it just gave me a bad taste to think about the future of these clips.”
