The 28-year-old singer, Courtney Stodden at Thursday night’s premiere of Drag: The Musical in Los Angeles shared to PageSix that they will not be watching Ana De Armas’s latest drama film Blonde. According to recent reports about the film, it is being criticized for the “exploitative” portrayal of legendary actress Marilyn Monroe.

The singer stated “As somebody who understands what it feels like to be exploited in a sexual way and then have people turn you into a joke when you are not a joke,” adding, “I think diving into that is a little disrespectful.”

Stating to the outlet, she urged people not to watch the drama film.

“I would urge people to not watch the movie because that is not Marilyn Monroe, that is not her story. It’s fictionalized and it’s to make her something she wasn’t,” they stated.

“She never wanted to be the girl they’re painting her as. Please, please don’t watch it,” they further reminded.

“‘Like she said, ‘Leave Britney alone!”‘ Stodden said. “Now it’s time we say, ‘Leave Marilyn alone!’”

She has often proved to be a superfan of the late Hollywood megastar Marilyn Monroe, which is why she could not stand her idol being disrespected in any way, not just the movie, she has also raised eyebrows on Kim Kardashian.

The New York Times film critic Manohla Dargis in her movie’s movie stated, “Given all the indignities and horrors that Marilyn Monroe endured during her 36 years, it is a relief that she didn’t have to suffer through the vulgarities of ‘Blonde,’ the latest necrophiliac entertainment to exploit her.” 

Based on the 2000 novel of the same name by Joyce Carol Oates, Blonde is a fictionalized take on the life and career of Monroe, played by actress Ana de Armas.

Blonde is streaming on Netflix.
