Ana de Armas is certainly one of the most attention-grabbing actresses in all of Hollywood right now. She has acted in several films and raised her stock with each of them. Ana de Armas also paid a visit to Marilyn Monroe’s grave to ask ‘permission’ to play her on ‘Blonde.’

Ana de Armas sensed Marilyn Monroe’s presence while filming “Blonde.” The actress said that she went to Marilyn Monroe’s grave to seek “permission” to play the “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” icon in Andrew Dominik’s NC-17 portrayal for Netflix. Ana de Armas shared the interesting story in a recent AnOther magazine cover story.

We got this big card, and everyone in the crew wrote a message to her. Then we went to the cemetery and put it on her grave. We were asking for permission in a way. Everyone felt a huge responsibility, and we were very aware of the side of the story we were going to tell — the story of Norma Jeane, the person behind this character, Marilyn Monroe. Who was she really?

“Blonde” is currently in theaters and premieres on Netflix on September 28. The movie had its global premiere at the Venice Film Festival in 2022. It follows Monroe from her early years to her ascent to popularity and eventual demise from a heroin overdose in 1962.

The movie “Blonde” is based on the same-titled book by Joyce Carol Oates. De Armas previously stated that she didn’t intend to “imitate” Monroe on screen, but rather to embody the “Some Like It Hot” star’s “feelings, her journey, her insecurities, and her voice” in her performance.
