Ana de Armas speaks about playing Marilyn Monroe in Blonde
Ana de Armas sat for an interview with Allure. During the conversation, she was asked about the major hair and makeup transformation she went through to give life to one of Hollywood’s most bankable performers, Marilyn Monroe.
Ben Affleck’s girlfriend admitted that she didn’t expect the transformation. She was very emotional that she cried.
“I cried. It was a big, big deal for me,” de Armas said.
“It was a very important role for me, a big challenge, something that I was preparing for a very long time — and to finally sit in the chair and put the wig and makeup on… it was very special. I completely transformed. One of the most beautiful things about my job, I think, is to see yourself become someone else.”
When asked if she had been blonde in real life, de Armas said she tried it but not as blonde as Monroe. She shared that the late actress was completely platinum but had golden blonde at the beginning. She had about five wigs with different lengths and colors for the role.
“We had to do some aging makeup because it went over so many years of her life,” she added.
