Ana de Armas belives nudity scenes from Blonde will go viral, and she is not happy
The fact that Ana de Armas’ naked sequences from the highly anticipated Netflix film “Blonde” are likely to become viral on the internet disgusts her.
“Blonde,” based on Marilyn Monroe’s life, opens Sept. 28.
De Armas revealed her reaction to the nude scenes with Variety. The 34-year-old actress remarked, “I know what’s going to go viral,”
“And it’s disgusting. It’s upsetting just to think about it. I can’t control it, you can’t really control what they do and how they take things out of context. I don’t think it gave me second thoughts, it just gave me a bad taste to think about the future of those clips,”
The actress said she made the picture for director Andrew Dominik and Marilyn Monroe. “I did things in this movie I would have never done for anyone else, ever. I did it for her, and I did it for Andrew,”
De Armas visited Marilyn Monroe’s grave during filming.
“I couldn’t shake it off. I couldn’t let her go. I went to visit her at her cemetery a few times — I would have liked to go one more time,” she said.
“Blonde” NC-17 rating confused de Armas.
The MPAA awards a picture an NC-17 rating for gratuitous violence, graphic sex/nudity, and strong language. NC-17 is different from R because kids 17 and younger can see R movies with an adult but not NC-17.
The Cuban actress says she is seen movies with more explicit content than “Blonde”
“I didn’t understand why that happened,” she remarked in L’Officiel. “I can tell you a number of shows or movies that are way more explicit with a lot more sexual content than ‘Blonde.'”
She knows the movie has explicit sequences, but she thinks they are vital to explain the plot.
“I didn’t understand why that happened,” she continued “I can tell you a number of shows or movies that are way more explicit with a lot more sexual content than ‘Blonde.'”
“Blonde” is De Armas’s first starring role. Monroe’s followers objected to her casting since she has a Cuban accent.
She did not let criticism of her accent affect her or add to the pressure she was already feeling, saying everyone should feel pressure playing a famous person. She emphasised that her performance was not an imitation but a way to show the icon’s state of mind.
“To tell this story it is important to show all these moments in Marilyn’s life that made her end up the way that she did. It needed to be explained,” she said. “Everyone [in the cast] knew we had to go to uncomfortable places. I wasn’t the only one.”
The Marilyn Monroe Estate backed the actress, saying she “Ana was a great casting choice as she captures Marilyn’s glamour, humanity, and vulnerability.”
