After that, he ignored everything that should have raised an eyebrow and continued on his merry way.

In addition, he praised the casting choice, saying that she does a great job of capturing Marilyn Monroe’s glitz, humanity, and vulnerability. Moreover, he stated that casting her was a brilliant move. There won’t be a second of the film that we can’t see in its entirety once it’s out in the wild.
