Ana de Armas said she didn’t feel exploited
Actress Ana de Armas talked about filming lewd scenes for her new movie Blonde. The movie premiered on 16th September and received a 14-minute long ovation at Venice Film Festival. The actress said she was comfortable while filming the scenes,
“It’s harder for people to watch [those scenes] than for me to make them because I understood what I was doing and I felt very protected and safe. I didn’t feel exploited because I was in control. I made that decision. I knew what I was doing. I trusted my director. I felt like I was in a safe environment. We had hundreds of conversations about these scenes. Everyone felt a deep respect for the movie we were making. And in that sense, I had no fear. I didn’t feel uncomfortable at all, even though they were really hard scenes.”
The movie received an NC-17 rating due to one scene that contains oral s*x.
The actress is worried that the explicit media will circulate online
In her recent interview with Variety, the actress said it feels “disgusting” to know that the explicit scenes from the movie will be widely circulated online. She said,
“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. I don’t think it gave me second thoughts; it just gave me a bad taste to think about the future of those clips. I know what’s going to go viral, and it’s disgusting. I did things in this movie I would have never done for anyone else, ever. I did it for her, and I did it for [Andrew Dominik]”
The actress previously revealed that they took “permission” from Marilyn Monroe before filming the movie. She said that she left a note on the legendary actress’ grave that had notes from all the crew members of the movie.

Even her death scene was shot in the same room where the legendary actress actually passed away. She believed that Marilyn Monroe was communicating with the cast of the movie from “beyond the grave.”
