“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?”

Marilyn, whose real name was Norma Jeanne Mortenson’s burial place is at Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery after her tragic, untimely death in 1962. She was only 36 at the time.

Armas claims that the movie set had an ongoing supernatural vibe, which began as soon as they started filming on August 4, which is the death anniversary of Monroe’s passing.
