Ana de Armas has over 100 costume changes in her upcoming Marilyn Monroe movie, Blonde.
The Knives Out actress is currently in the post-production phase of Andrew Dominik’s Blonde, a drama based on the novel of the same name by Joyce Carol Oates.
Ana takes on the Hollywood icon in the project, and while it was challenging to play such a complex figure, she was thrilled by all of the wardrobe options.
“That wardrobe was massive,” she said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “I think I had over 100 changes.”
Little else is known about Blonde, which will also feature Adrien Brody, Bobby Cannavale, and Julianne Nicholson.
However, Ana noted that being able to wear such glamorous outfits was a direct contrast to the clothes she wore while growing up in Havana, Cuba.
“When I was in middle school and high school, it was terrible,” the 31-year-old recalled to stylist Karla Welch, adding that she often wore her brother’s hand-me-downs. “I didn’t have much to choose from. I would wear basically anything I had… Clothes that were too small for him, I would wear it. It was kind of tomboyish.”
And even now, Ana prefers to be comfortable whenever she’s off-duty.
“In the morning, I get up so early to go to set. I see the cute boots or the sneakers when I’m deciding what to wear, and I always choose the sneakers,” she laughed in a recent chat with Porter magazine.
Blonde is set to hit cinemas later this year. Ana’s other upcoming projects include James Bond movie No Time to Die, slated for release in November, and Adrian Lyne’s thriller Deep Water.
