Twitter reacts to Ana de Armas’ accent in ‘Blonde’

“In danger of offending those who care more about language than substance, Norma Jean didn’t have a Spanish accent. That’s what Ana de Armas does in the trailer. There’s a lot of cultural appropriation in Hollywood, yes, but there’s no reason to spoil historical accuracy by going in and way.” Others,” one of the tweets was read. “Another example of an actress who doesn’t make her character believable because of her accent. I’m not willing to pretend Marilyn Monroe was just Hispanic so Ana de Armas could work. Incidentally, I love Ana but this was a huge acting failure,” another wrote.

“I know the movie isn’t out yet, but the blonde starring Ana de Armas looks amazing and the scenes give me goosebumps but I know you can still hear her accent.. like she’s strong. I’m so surprised they thought she looked like Marilyn because she literally doesn’t look? One fan tweeted. “I’m so torn about this. I love Ana de Armas, but her accent really pulls me off the trailer, which isn’t entirely her fault. It just didn’t quite hit me. I’ll definitely watch it, maybe it’s better in full context,” said one fan.

One comment read: “Anna de Armas was so bad about working for 9 months with a BC Marilyn accent or else she could pretend it was an artistic choice and I know Film and half the critics would buy it.” “Everyone seems to focus on the Ana de Armas accent in BLONDE, but I think that only makes the film more interesting; it emphasizes the resourcefulness inherent in biographies (and in acting in general), which imo is appropriate in a work that seems dedicated to exploring the resourcefulness versus One fan explained.

“I love Ana de Armas but I must admit that I am skeptical of her playing Marilyn Monroe…Her accent is still evident in everything I’ve seen in her. Not like Nicole Kidman or Saoirse Ronan who can hide an original accent,” one fan shared his two cents.
