Netflix Just Dropped The First Trailer For The Marilyn Monroe Drama “Blonde” And Honestly, Ana De Armas’ Resemblance Is Uncanny



“Marilyn Monroe only exists on the screen.”

Netflix just dropped the first trailer for their Marilyn Monroe drama Blonde — and I think they completely nailed it.

The upcoming film, based on the bestselling novel of the same name, stars Ana de Armas as the iconic entertainer.

It’s set to explore the life of the Hollywood icon “from her volatile childhood as Norma Jeane, through her rise to stardom and romantic entanglements.”

But based on the new trailer, Blonde doesn’t just simply recount the events of Marilyn’s life — it imagines her unknown complex and tragic life behind the scenes.

Not only did Ana perfect Marilyn’s appearance and mannerisms for the film, but the crew also helped masterfully recreate personal moments and movie scenes from Marilyn’s career.

“I read Joyce’s novel, studied hundreds of photographs, videos, audio recordings, films — anything I could get my hands on. Every scene is inspired by an existing photograph. We’d pore over every detail in the photo and debate what was happening in it,” Ana shared with Netflix Queue.

Ana added, “The first question was always, ‘What was Norma Jeane feeling here?’ We wanted to tell the human side of her story. Fame is what made Marilyn the most visible person in the world, but it also made Norma the most invisible.”

That idea is exactly what’s shared in the trailer, as Marilyn sits down with Joe DiMaggio, played by Bobby Cannavale, and pours her heart out about the pressures of her career.

“I know you’re supposed to get used to it, but I just can’t. I’ve played Marilyn Monroe, Marilyn Monroe, Marilyn Monroe. I can’t face doing another scene with Marilyn Monroe,” she shares.

She continues, “Marilyn doesn’t exist. When I come out of my dressing room, I’m Norma Jeane. I’m still her when the camera’s rolling. Marilyn Monroe only exists on the screen.”


These “Barbie” Cast Members Attended A Pride Parade On A Perfectly Pink Float



Barbie Cast Members Attend West Hollywood Pride

If there’s one place Barbie is loved, it’s at a pride parade.

On Sunday, West Hollywood held its annual Pride Parade, and it was a star-studded affair.

This included several honorees, like Melissa McCarthy who received the Ally Icon award.

Niecy Nash-Betts (on the right) and her wife Jessica Betts were named Trailblazer Icons.

Laith Ashley, who plays Taylor Swift’s love interest in the “Lavender Haze” music video, was honored with the Breakthrough Icon award.

Finally, RuPaul’s Drag Race was given the Drag Icon Award, and numerous queens who’ve competed on the show appeared on floats throughout the parade, including Rock M. Sakura and Gottmik.

Other celebrities in attendance included Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke.

Selling Sunset alum Christine Quinn came to celebrate, too.

However, two of the most notable attendees were Barbie costars who adorned a perfectly electric pink float for the film.

Alexandra plays one of the many Barbies. Her tagline is, “This Barbie is a celebrated author.”

Meanwhile, Scott plays a Ken. His tagline is, “You guessed it. He’s a Ken.”

While they might have supporting roles in the film, they were front and center on the Barbie float, celebrating all things love. Of course, they both wore pink.

Alexandra was appropriately dressed in a pink two-piece look with color-coordinating earrings and shoes.

Scott opted for lighter shades of the film’s signature color but still wore a pink printed button-down and pink shorts.

If a Barbie float at a Pride parade isn’t reason enough to see the film when it comes out July 21, then I don’t know what is.

In the wise words of another gay icon Jennifer Coolidge in the film Single All the Way, “The gays just know how to do stuff.”

Happy Pride! Looking for more ways to get involved? Check out all of BuzzFeed’s posts celebrating Pride 2023.
