After the release of the first trailer for the Marilyn Monroe biopic Blonde, fans came after Ana de Armas, who plays the iconic diva. Most of the netizens had a problem with Armas’s accent which was apparently still coming in the film. The Deep Water actress is Cuban-Spanish in origin, which means she automatically has a heavy accent when speaking in English.

Hearing the news of such criticism from the actress, who had tuned her accent for months, Marilyn Monroe came forward to defend the estate Armas. Mark Rosen, president of entertainment at Authentic Brands Group, which owns the Marilyn Monroe estate, stood up for Armas, as he said in a statement to Variety, per Page Six “any actor who steps into that role He knows he has big shoes to fill.”
Rosen continued, “Marilyn Monroe is a singular Hollywood and pop culture icon who has lived through generations and history.” She praised the actress and her rendition of the legendary actress, “Based on the trailer alone, it looks like Anna was a great casting choice as she captures Marilyn’s glam.
