Ana de Armas thinks Marilyn Monroe haunted her on ‘Blonde’ set

Ghosts are a girl’s best friend.

Ana de Armas thinks Marilyn Monroe haunted the cast of her new film “Blonde”, where she plays the Hollywood icon.

“I think she was happy. Sometimes she would throw things off the wall and get mad if she didn’t like something,” De Armas told reporters at the Venice Film Festival, according to Reuters.

“It may sound very mystical, but it’s true. We have all felt it. »

The 34-year-old ‘Knives Out’ star added that Moroe was always nearby.

“I really believe that she was very close to us. She was with us,” De Armas said.

The film’s director, Andrew Dominik, agreed he felt his presence, telling reporters: “It definitely took on elements of being like a seance.”

De Armas claimed that everyone on set felt Monroe’s presence.

“Blonde” has been filled with mysticism from the very beginning. Filming for the biopic began on August 4, the anniversary of Monroe’s death in 1962. She died of an overdose at the age of 36.

To make matters even stranger, the film’s initial scenes were shot in the same apartment where Monroe had lived with her mentally ill mother, Reuters reported. And her death scene was also shot in the same room where Monroe died.

De Armas has previously admitted that she knew very little about Monroe when she was approached to play the role, but studied her while preparing for the film.

“She was everything I thought about, she was everything I dreamed of, she was everything I could talk about, she was with me and it was beautiful,” de Armas said.

De Armas, who has a heavy Cuban accent, even used a voice coach to capture the way Monroe spoke.

And Dominick knew de Armas was the right fit for the role from the start.

“I knew it was her as soon as I saw her on TV,” he said. “It’s a bit like when you fall in love at first sight, when the right person walks through the door, you know it.”

“Blonde” also stars Adrien Brody and Julianne Nicholson and premiered at the Venice Film Festival on Thursday.
