“Blonde,” the film based on the novel by Joyce Carol Oates, features a particular scene that people who have seen the film have described as “horrible,” “crazy,” or “degrading.” A scene that shows us the unpleasant development of a demanding and unromantic fellatio, so to speak.
It is said that the representation is fictitious, that Oates -the narrator- imagined it, we suppose that based on the well-known character of the former American president and the actress, who, sleepy and drugged, arrived by plane from New York to meet her “lover secret”. In a scene that, if it didn’t happen at that moment, she could have done it in others… In Oates’s opinion.
The scene shows us how two security agents take the actress to meet the president. Monroe (played by a masterful Ana de Armas) is eager to talk to her lover, but they end up in her bed forcing her to perform oral sex while she talks on the phone about her public image and love affairs! her! Quite a paradox that can also lead us to think that it is a scene more fictional than real, since it would explain details of the characters and their concerns and tribulations.
Finally, it is assumed that the intimate scene is so forceful that it almost leaves the unhappy Monroe unconscious, highlighting the profile required of her to understand the fictionalized drama.
Marilyn is also said to have confirmed that her relationship with the president was “spiritual” and unaffected by sexual tension. Although, everyone understood that it was a form of comfort for her. And also that for Kennedy, that great woman who was Marilyn was simply a “toy”, a new conquest.
In some biographies it is pointed out that Monroe became pregnant from her relationship with the president, and that she was forced to have an abortion in the face of the foreseeable scandal.
Be that as it may, shortly after the beginning of the relationship and the scandalous scene that we can see in Blonde, Monroe died at her home in Los Angeles, due to an overdose of barbiturates, as told in the version official.
The beginning of the end of Marilyn Monroe
After the divorce of Marilyn Monroe from the writer Arthur Miller, she began to sink into a gloom, on a path of no return.
It seems a convinced reality that as time went on, Monroe’s drug abuse and mental anguish skyrocketed to funeral homes.
Was it during that period of time that she fell in love with her? of President John F. Kennedy (played by Caspar Phillipson), the 35th President of the United States of America.
It was on May 19, 1962, that Ella Monroe sang the iconic song “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” at Madison Square Garden, in honor of Kennedy’s forty-fifth birthday. From there, the speculations about her relationship grew as if they were foam in front of the shore of a rough sea. But neither of them officially revealed anything about their relationship.
When Marilyn Monroe sang “Happy Birthday” to Kennedy
So what remains of this relationship? Is the scene we see in Blonde real? Is it only Oates’s imagination that recreates something that could really have happened, albeit in another way? I would remove the question mark from this last question.
