“We got this big card, and everyone in the crew wrote a message to her,” de Armas said. Then we went to the cemetery and put it on her grave. We were asking for permission in a way.”
“Everyone felt a huge responsibility, and we were very aware of the side of the story we were going to tell – the story of Norma Jeane, the person behind this character, Marilyn Monroe. Who was she really?” the actor added.
Earlier, the 34-year-old actor had revealed she felt the presence of Monroe on set, adding she could feel her spirit during shooting.
“Monroe’s ghost would also throw things off the wall sometimes and get mad if she didn’t like something,” de Armas said, as reported by GQ.
