Marilyn Monroe’s movie is ‘the most beautiful thing she’s done’
- Ana de Armas should star in Andrew Dominik’s Blond.
- The film is a biopic about iconic American actress and model Marilyn Monroe.
- de Armas recently called the NC-17-rated film the “prettiest thing she’s ever done.”
We wrote about Netflix’s quasi-mythical Blond several times on this website (for obvious reasons), as the Andrew Dominik-directed film not only stars rising star Ana de Armas as a legendary actress and model, but the film also received an NC- 17, which is something Dominik seemed quite proud of when discussing the film.
Originally slated for release last year, Blond — a film that Netflix was likely hoping was an awards season contender — was dropped from the schedule due to rumors that the streamer was unprepared for the graphic nature of the film. Dominik, however, was obviously relentless in his commitment to his vision, as Netflix will now release the film as it had planned this year.
“It’s a demanding film,” Dominik said of Blond earlier this year. “If the public doesn’t like it, that’s the fucking public’s problem. This is not about running for public office. This is an NC-17 film about Marilyn Monroe, this is kinda what you want, right? I want to go see the NC-17 version of the Marilyn Monroe story.

Although she starred in the movie, de Armas – who has tons of projects going on these days, as she’s set to star in The gray manrecently packed Ghost alongside Chris Evans, and will begin production on a John Wick fallout this summer – has been largely silent when it comes to her performance in the film. Until recently.
Talk to Weekly entertainmentde Armas recently opened up about what it was like to make the film, saying that while it was the “most intense job” she’s ever done, Blonde is also the “most beautiful thing” she’s ever done. never made.
“It was the most intense work I’ve ever done as an actress,” she said. “It took me a year to prepare for this – research and accent and everything you can imagine. Reading material, talking to Andrew Dominik for months and getting ready to start. It was three months of filming no -stop – like, crazy timing.
“It was the greatest thing I’ve ever done. I can’t wait for it to come out. It’s a very special movie, and Andrew is a genius. He’s one of the best filmmakers I’ve worked with. never worked.” [via Entertainment Weekly]
At that time, when Blond should be released in 2022, it has no official release date. We will certainly let you know when this is the case.
