Since playing a subservient holographic AI in Blade Runner 2049, Ana de Armas's career has royally bloomed. She won immense praise for her role in Knives Out, took out Spectre agents as a Bond girl in No Time to Die, and did her creeping in Deep Water.
Her upcoming movie, Blonde, is already creating lots of buzz. It has become the first Netflix movie to get an NC-17 rating. Netflix has streamed NC-17 movies in the past (like Blue Is the Warmest Color), but this is the first Netflix-produced movie to get this rare and raunchy rating.
Blonde is a "biopic" of the iconic movie goddess & bombshell Marilyn Monroe. It's directed by Andrew Dominik and based on an epic novel of the same name by Joyce Carol Oates. The author has cautioned that her book is a work of fiction and imagination, not a biography.
Director Andrew Dominik had expected this rating and had conveyed the same in an interview with Screen Daily in February.
Dominik also showed appreciation for Netflix’s support, saying, “It’s much easier to support stuff when you like it. It’s much harder when you don’t. I have nothing but gratitude for Netflix.”
Ana de Armas went through an astonishing transformation to play Monroe on the silver screen. She used to sit "three and a half hours every day" in the makeup chair to get the looks on point.
