Soon after it was reported that Naomi Watts will play Marilyn Monroe in upcoming "Blonde", a photo of her in the new biopic has emerged. The said image was debuted at the Cannes Film Festival which is currently held in France, and French website Allocine managed to snap a look at the promo picture.

It additionally will highlight her relationships with various famous men, including John F. Kennedy and Joe Dimaggio.

I can't believe they're basing a movie about her on that piece of garbage, surely the TV mini-series with Poppy Montgomery was enough. Not to mention that Watts is now 5 years older than Marilyn was at her death! Much more looking forward to Michelle Williams in One Week With Marilyn.
