Ana de Armas is absolutely gorgeous :)

The author is an idiot:
"Ana de Armas, who made her debut as a Bond girl in No Time to Die...."
So Knives Out was only in my head?

She's not the right actress to play Monroe; she's way hotter than Marylin.

I think it was the "innocent, but sexy girl next door" persona Hollywood created for her.

She's one of the most recognizable faces of the 20th century.

I'm sorry she didn't do any Space Trek or Murray Python, but that doesn't make her any less of a pop culture icon.

TFA says this isn't really a biopic.  The movie is based on MM but the themes are more generally universal, i.e.  the over-sexualization of young starlets and the pitfalls of Hollywood for them.

de Armas is playing a farm girl turned sex symbol, and James Franco is playing Castro.

I guess that is better then sex symbol Castro played by de Armas, or butch Norma Jean by Franco. More importantly, the universe has a way of balancing out.

Or, at least Hollywood does.

Subby, sex and rape are not the same thing.

FTFA:

Notably, Oates's reimagining of Norma Jean's life involves a diary-like chapter in which a 21-year-old Monroe goes for her first movie audition at a place referred to as The Studio, only for a producer, Mr. Z, to violently rape her.

FTFA:

Later, she is told that she won the part off the back of her "audition," and her career is effectively launched.

So then the idea that the film is putting out there, is that for better or for worse, getting raped paid off?

Besides being pretty disgusting, it's also a massive disservice to the fact that Monroe worked hard to develop her career, making the most of small, supporting roles to get noticed, such as in All About Eve, and from them, land larger and larger roles.

She was married 3 times. None of them lasted more than 5 years.

I went down a wormhole at one time in learning about Norma Jean. I stopped when it just got too dark. It is a horrendous example of what happens when fame happen to a perfectly nice, intelligent person.

a good 25 years ago, wife and I toured the Capitol (the legal way, not the Jan 6 way) and the Senate was in session.  this was like, 6-7PM, so there were only 4-5 senators present, one of whom was Ted Kennedy.  (TX's Kay Bailey Hutchinson, AZ's on Jon Kyl, a few others).  they were debating some Medicare bill (amazing the mundane details I remember) but the whole time, I was like, "chappaquiddick........there he is, in the flesh, just mere feet away....chap-a farking quiddick....wow."

I remember an old Gallagher bit... DiMaggio used to do commercials for Folgers coffee, and the tagline was "The best I ever tasted".  He was married to Marilyn Monroe... that must be some amazing coffee!

I don't know. Maybe young people look at Marilyn Monroe the way I look at Betty Grable's pinups. She was supposed to be hot to WWII era men and I never felt even the slightest bit of interest. To me Betty Grable looks very average.

The statement isn't about if she's hot or not, it's if you know who she is.

The idea that people under 60 don't know who one of the most famous and recognizable icons of modern times is is laughable.
