Blonde: Netflix film starring an Ana de Armas who took her role very seriously.
While we remember the brand new image of Ana de Armas transformed into a relentless agent in the inspiring film El hombre mediocre, the interpreter of Cuban origin now puts himself in the shoes of Marilyn Monroe in the new Netflix production Blonde (Blonde hair).
A sex symbol that concealed a wild intelligence, Monroe not only impressed generations with her beauty, but also became a myth that was not without controversy and concealment.

This will appear on the tape, which will be released on the streaming platform on October 28 this year. However, this is not a conventional life.
Based on the novel of the same name by Joyce Carol Oates, Blonde boldly reimagines the life of one of Hollywood’s most enduring icons, Marilyn Monroe. From her unpredictable childhood as Norma Jeane, to her rise to stardom, to her romantic entanglements. On top of that, he blurs the lines of existence and fiction to explore the ever widening gap between his known self and his private self.

“Director Andrew Dominik wanted the world to know what it’s like to be not only Marilyn but also Norma Jeane. It struck me as the most daring, feminist and uncompromising approach in his story that I’ve ever known,” said Ana de Armas, who undergoes a surprising transformation from the abundance of film.

We worked on this film for hours every day for almost a year,” De Armas recalls.
“I read Joyce’s novels, I studied hundreds of photos, videos, audio recordings, films, everything I could find. Each panorama is inspired by an existing photo. We meticulously analyze every detail of the photo and discuss what happened in it. The first question was always: “How did Norma Jeane feel here?” We wanted to tell the human side of his story. The boom made Marilyn the most visible person in the world, but it also made Norma the most invisible,” he said in an interview with Netflix.

De Armas faced intense filming and had to spend many hours putting on makeup and doing her hair before scenes of great emotional distress ensued. “I was very lucky to have Ana because she was capable of anything,” said the film’s director.
“Our film is neither straight nor conventional; it’s meant to be a sensual and emotional experience,” says De Armas. “The film evolves to the rhythm of his feelings and his experiences. There are times when we are in her body and in her mind, and that gives the viewer the opportunity to feel what it was like to be Norma and Marilyn at the same time”, recalls Ana de Armas.
