The promising actress managed to convince them all. A Cuban playing Marilyn Monroe was her biggest dream!
Jamie Lee Curtis worked with de Armas on “Knives Out,”. But did you know that her father Tony Curtis also knew Monroe and starred with the diva in her most celebrated movie, “Some Like it Hot” Billy Wilder’s Hollywood classic.
