WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE THE BIGGEST ICON IN HOLLYWOOD HISTORY?

Turns out it’s a stellar accent!

It was never all glitz and glamour in Marilyn Monroe’s world and Ana De Armas is experiencing that first hand. After the first trailer of Andrew Dominik’s Blonde was released many fans were outraged at the casting of De Armas as the 50s movie mega star as her accent didn’t do justice to Monroe’s iconic breathy tone. But now The Monroe Estate has come to her defense albeit the movie not being authorized by them.

“Marilyn Monroe is a singular Hollywood and pop culture icon that transcends generations and history,” said Marc Rosen, president of entertainment at Authentic Brands Group (ABG), which owns the Marilyn Monroe Estate. “Any actor that steps into that role knows they have big shoes to fill. Based on the trailer alone, it looks like Ana was a great casting choice as she captures Marilyn’s glamour, humanity and vulnerability. We can’t wait to see the film in its entirety!”
