Ana De Armas Reveals Why It Took Her So Long To Perfect Marilyn Monroe’s Voice for ‘Blonde’

Ana de Armas is opening up about the trickiest thing about portraying Marilyn Monroe in the upcoming biopic, Blonde – her voice.

The 32-year-old Knives Out actress spoke to The Times of London about how it took her almost a year to nail down Marilyn‘s unique accent.

“I tried! It only took me nine months of dialect coaching, and practicing, and some ADR sessions [rerecording dialogue after filming],” Ana shared in the interview. “It was a big torture, so exhausting. My brain was fried.”

She also commented on her experience playing Marilyn in the movie, saying she “had a lot of thoughts as a woman in the industry, and even in general, about how things from the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s are so relatable to nowadays. And how if you don’t have a strong base, with your family and so on, it’s really hard to make it through — really hard.”

Previously, Ana opened up about which other actor was her biggest supporter in getting the role for the movie.
