- Ana de Armas said it's "upsetting" that nude scenes of her in "Blonde" will likely circulate on the internet.
- "I know what's going to go viral," de Armas told Variety of the movie, "and it's disgusting."
- "Blonde," a biopic about Marilyn Monroe's life, premieres on Netflix on September 28.
Ana de Armas is worried about where nude images of her in scenes from the upcoming film "Blonde" might end up.
In an interview with Variety, de Armas said she appeared nude in "Blonde," a new Netflix movie about Marilyn Monroe's life starring de Armas, and that anyone who subscribes to the streaming platform now has access to clips of her naked body.
"I know what's going to go viral," de Armas told Variety of the movie, "and it's disgusting."
She continued: "It's upsetting just to think about it. I can't control it; you can't really control what they do and how they take things out of context."
Despite that, she said that knowledge of nude scenes didn't "give me second thoughts."
"It just gave me a bad taste to think about the future of those clips," de Armas told Variety.Insider has seen "Blonde," which is based on the 2000 novel by Joyce Carol Oates that gives a fictionalized take on the life of Monroe. There are numerous scenes where de Armas is topless, and in some instances, completely nude.
The movie has been given an NC-17 rating, marking the first time a Netflix original has been given that rating. It's for the nudity but also for a lewd scene in which Monroe visits president John F. Kennedy in a hotel room, and he forces her to perform oral sex on him while he's on the phone.
"We're telling her story from her point of view," de Armas told Variety when asked about the movie's sexual nature. "I'm making people feel what she felt. When we had to shoot these kinds of scenes, like the one with Kennedy, it was difficult for everybody. But at the same time, I knew I had to go there to find the truth."
"Blonde" will premiere on Netflix on September 28.
