Venice Film Festival: Ana De Armas Breaks Down In Tears As Blonde Gets 14 Minute Standing Ovation

The screening of Marilyn Monroe's biopic Blonde starring Ana De Armas was reportedly met by a 14-minute standing ovation, the longest of any film at this year's Festival.

Ana De Armas broke down in tears as her upcoming film Blonde received a 14-minute standing ovation at its world premiere at Venice Film Festival. The actress starred as Marilyn Monroe in the movie. Armas, along with the cast and crew, attended Blonde’s debut where it received rave reviews from critics while viewers were left equally impressed.

The screening of Blonde reportedly received a 14-minute standing ovation, the longest of any film at this year’s Festival, which is known for its long applause. The incredible response brought lead actress Ana and her co-star Adrien Brody, who plays Arthur Miller in Blonde, to tears, as reported by DailyMail.

Ana stars as Marilyn/Norma Jeane Baker in Andrew’s Dominik adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates’s novel, which reimagines the life of the tragic Hollywood star and is a fictionalised take on her story. Critics left impressed with Ana’s performance in Blonde and described it as ‘extraordinary.’ Produced by Brad Pitt, the upcoming Netflix film will hit the streaming platform on September 28.

While Marilyn Moore’s upcoming biopic received critical acclamation, it has been surrounded by many controversies. Blonde has an NC-17 rating and in a previous interview with Lofficiel USA., Ana De Armas opens up about the decision regarding the rating. The actress shared, “I didn’t understand why that happened. I can tell you a number of shows or movies that are way more explicit content than Blonde. But to tell this story it is important to show all these moments in Marilyn’s life that made her end up the way that she did.”

Armas continues, “It needed to be explained. Everyone [in the cast] knew we had to go to uncomfortable places. I wasn’t the only one.” No Time To Die actress also admits that the film had to cover all of the uncomfortable and raw aspects of the late movie star’s life. For de Armas, it was more than just imitating Monroe. “My job wasn’t to imitate her,” she says. “I was interested in her feelings, her journey, her insecurities, and her voice, in the sense that she didn’t really have one.”
