Actor Ana de Armas has been speaking ahead of the release of Blonde on Netflix, which is a film biopic about Marilyn Monroe's life.

De Armas plays the starring role in the movie as Monroe, which releases on the streaming platform on 28 September.

In a new interview, the actor confirmed that there will be nude scenes of her in Blonde, and that anyone who has Netflix will have access to clips of her naked.

De Armas told Variety that she knows the clips will go viral and believes that is 'disgusting'.

She said: "It's upsetting just to think about it. I can't control it; you can't really control what they do and how they take things out of context.

However, she said that the thought of it did not stop her wanting to take on the role: "I don’t think it gave me second thoughts; it just gave me a bad taste to think about the future of those clips."

The movie has been given an NC-17 rating, which marks the first time a Netflix Original has been given that rating.

This is due to not only the nudity, but also for a scene in which Monroe visits John F. Kennedy in a hotel room, with the former president forcing her to perform oral sex on him.

When asked about the film's sexual nature and filming that scene, de Armas said: "We're telling her story from her point of view.

"I'm making people feel what she felt. When we had to shoot these kinds of scenes, like the one with Kennedy, it was difficult for everybody. But at the same time, I knew I had to go there to find the truth."

In the interview, she also recalls when she was casted for the part and how she brought her accent coach to the audition.

"I hadn’t had the training and the voice and everything," she said.

"So my coach was crouching on the floor, under the table.

"I just knew that everything we did that day was going to be the definitive test of the movie to be greenlit or not."

The scene that was used for de Armas' audition is when Monroe pleads with husband Joe DiMaggio to move to New York so that she can 'start from zero, away from Hollywood'.

Because of how much she wanted the part, this audition was make or break for the actor.

But little did de Armas know that she was already the first choice of director Andrew Dominik for the role.
