Emily Ratajkowski has taken to TikTok to discuss the latest Marilyn Monroe biopic on Netflix, Blonde, and she has said that she is not surprised to learn that it is another movie that “fetishizes female pain.”
Emily Ratajkowski’s outrage about the latest Marilyn Monroe film begs the question: why?
The film Anne of Arms, starring Anne Hathaway and directed by Andrew Dominik, has been heavily criticized since its release for its sensational depiction of the late actress’s life. Critics have said that there have been too many Hollywood depictions of exploited women.
In a TikTok video, he said, “So I’ve heard a lot about this Marilyn Monroe movie, Blondewhich I haven’t seen yet, but I’m not surprised to hear that it’s another movie that fetishizes female misery, even in death.”
He continued his video in which he addressed the camera, saying, “We love to fetishize female pain. ” He had previously lambasted Adam Levine for his role in the recent adultery controversy. Just take a look at Amy Winehouse. Case in point: Britney Spears. Look at all the fuss we’re making over Princess Diana’s passing.
Take a look at our fixation on serial killing and murdered women. Check out any CSI episode and you’ll see an unhealthy fixation on violence against women and the sexualization of suffering.
Model unwillingly continued: “I suppose as a woman I can say that I’ve learned to fetishize my own suffering and my own hurt so that it feels like something to tend to, what is something sexy.
We all have our own unique ways of saying, “Oh, I’m this fucked up female and whatever;” I’m just saying there are lots of them. But I’d like for it to alter.
