Responding to the backlash, Ana, who only learned English in 2015, admitted she “didn’t grow up knowing Marilyn or her films”.
“I’m proud to have Andrew’s confidence and the chance to succeed. I feel like whether you’re a Cuban or American actress, everyone should feel the pressure.
“My job wasn’t to imitate him,” defended Ana, who spent nine months working with dialect coach Jessica Drake.
“I was interested in her feelings, her background, her insecurities and her voice, in the sense that she didn’t really have one.”

While Blonde isn’t fully licensed by the Marilyn Monroe estate, Ana’s performance received plenty of applause.
Monroe’s estate representative, Marc Rosen, told Variety on August 1, “Ana was a great casting choice because she captures Marilyn’s glamour, humanity and vulnerability.”
The cast was also championed by two-time Oscar winner Brad, who is one of Blonde’s six credited producers.
‘She’s phenomenal in it. It’s a tough dress to fill,’ the co-founder of Plan B Entertainment told ET on August 1.
“It took 10 years of preparation. It wasn’t until we found Ana that we were able to cross the finish line.
Blonde author Joyce Carol Oates and Jamie Lee Curtis – whose father Tony Curtis (played by Michael Masini) co-starred with Monroe in Some Like It Hot – have both seen the film and fully approve of it.
