It seems like controversies around Ana de Armas’ Blonde continue as the director Andrew Dominik describes Marilyn Monroe’s most notable character from ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’ a movie about “well-dressed wh*res.” Before this, the film faced backlash over Monroe’s accent in it.

For the unversed, when the trailer was released, many viewers were outraged over de Armas’ casting because her accent did not entirely match The Seven Year Itch actress’ iconic tone. However, they were defended by Marilyn’s official estate, who said that Ana was a great casting choice.

However, now, the Blonde director Andrew Dominik has been on the receiving end of backlash over his comment. A small part of his recent interview with BFI’s Sight and Sound Magazine was shared on Twitter. In it, Dominik asked, “Does anyone watch Marilyn Monroe movies?” The director then talked about Monroe’s 1953 film ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’ and said her character, Lorelei Lee, and actress Dorothy Shaw’s Jane Russell are “well-dressed wh*res.”

While talking about Marilyn Monroe’s song ‘Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend’ from the movie, the Blonde director said, “It’s like, is that sisterly advice, ‘If you’re gonna f*ck, make sure you get paid? Or is it just romanticised wh*redom?’” His comments quickly went viral all over social media, and now, several people are calling out Andrew Dominik.

Check out a few reactions here:

“The director of Blonde, in an interview about Blonde, called Marilyn a “well-dressed wh*re” and claimed nobody even watches her movies. like, ya, I bet his take on Marilyn Monroe in the movie he made about her is really gonna do her justice !!” one user said.

“Tone is hard to read but is this needlessly hostile? Calling MM a well dressed wh*re whose movies no one watches… Dominik, is Marilyn Monroe in the room with you now?” another added, while pointing out how Ana de Armas and the rest of the crew believed Monroe‘s ghost haunted their set.

A few even dragged Brad Pitt’s name into the matter as he is one of the producers of Blonde.

Do you agree with the backlash on the Blonde director describing Marilyn Monroe’s character as a “wh*res”?
