Talking about Blonde, the actress sat down for an interview with Vanity Fair. Since the movie was set in the middle 1950s, there was a lot of difference from the modern world compared to the movie timeline.

“I feel like the new generations don’t have that concept, because of social media. There is so much information out there and oversharing. The concept of a movie star is someone untouchable you only see onscreen. That mystery is gone. For the most part, we’ve done that to ourselves—nobody’s keeping anything from anyone anymore.”

Several people stood in support of the War Dogs actress and tweeted out their support for her.

Talking about her upcoming projects, Ana de Armas is excited to star in the John Wick spinoff Ballerina. The movie will showcase the actress in the lead role and will be seen all John Wick style. de Armas stated that she had been offered multiple projects yet she chose them strategically and what interested her the most.

“After Bond, there was kind of a wave of all these action roles, and that was fun. I chose from the ones that I thought were more exciting or with people I wanted to work with. I feel like Ballerina is going to be the end of that, at least for now, because I’m craving a wave of Blonde-type films. I want to do work with directors and do character work. I have had the opportunity to meet directors that I want to work with. The people that I’m getting access to is changing, and that makes me very excited.”

The upcoming Ballerina currently does not have a release date as the movie is in the production stage of development. Blonde, however, is available to stream on Netflix.
