Ana de Armas looks just like legendary actress Marilyn Monroe in the latest photos from the sets of “Blonde.”
The 34-year-old actress shared a series of on-set photos on her Instagram page Wednesday. They featured the actress with Adrien Brody. Armas will portray Monroe in the biopic helmed by Andrew Dominik, while Brody will play the legendary star’s husband Arthur Miller.
In the first photo, Armas can be seen holding flowers in her hand as Brody leans over to look at her. Another photo showed the actress doing a scene near a window with actor Bobby Cannavale, who portrays Joe DiMaggio in “Blonde.”
DiMaggio was a baseball player and was married to Monroe from 1954 to 1955. The next photo features Armas in Monroe’s famous outfit from the 1955 movie “The Seven Year Itch.”
In the last photo, Armas donned a pink outfit and was seen rehearsing with a dance choreographer.
“It was such a gift to get to work with actors like @adrienbrody and @bobby_cannavale on this beautiful project,” Armas captioned the post. “Can’t wait for everyone to see the wonderful work they do in this film.”
Celebrities and fans were equally excited to see Armas’ look.
Spanish actor Javier Cámara wrote: “Goddess! Your transformation is impressive. Looking forward to seeing that work. Congratulations,” according a Google translation.
Actor Jason Walsh simply wrote, “Can’t wait” with a red heart emoji, while model Blanca Padilla called it “exciting.”
One social media user wrote, “I’m speechless, simply WOW.” Another user said the resemblance was “uncanny.”
“Blonde” is based on Joyce Carol Oates’ book of the same name, which was released in 2001. The movie will also feature Sara Paxton, Julianne Nicholson, Xavier Samuel, Rebecca Wisocky, Evan Williams and Catherine Dent. The trailer of the movie is scheduled to release this Friday.
Director Dominik told ScreenDaily earlier this year that it’s a “demanding” movie and “if the audience doesn’t like it, that’s the f–king audience’s problem. It’s not running for public office.”
Monroe died in 1962 due to a barbiturate overdose. She was just 36 at the time.
