Ana de Armas plays Marilyn Monroe in Blonde. A new trailer gives a glimpse into the “complicated life of the Hollywood icon”.

In the new film by director Andrew Dominik (54), Ana de Armas (34) plays one of Hollywood’s most famous personalities. From September 28th she can be seen on Netflix in “Blonde” as Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962). Just don’t exist Marilyn as the actress explains in a new trailer.

“Blonde”, originally “Blonde”, is based on the novel of the same name by Joyce Carol Oates (84). Movie fans can get a glimpse of “the complicated life of the Hollywood icon” in the production, according to the trailer’s description.

“Marilyn doesn’t exist,” says the character Marilyn Monroe in the two-minute clip. “When I come out of my dressing room, I’m Norma Jeane. I’m still her when the camera rolls. Marilyn Monroe only exists on screen.”

“I just can not”

According to Netflix, the film, based on a screenplay by Dominik, intentionally plays with blurred lines between fiction and fact. He tells, among other things, from the childhood of Norma Jeane Mortenson, from her way to becoming a world star as Marilyn Monroe and also from the gap between the private person and the figure of public life. She knows that you supposedly get used to it, “but I just can’t,” explains Ana de Armas in her role, probably in relation to the hustle and bustle surrounding Marilyn Monroe.

Alongside Ana de Armas, Bobby Cannavale (52), Adrien Brody (49) and Julianne Nicholson (51) play alongside other actors in “Blond”. Brad Pitt (58) is responsible for the production. The film is also in competition at the 79th Venice Film Festival, which starts August 31st.
