Marilyn Monroe's estate has come to the defense of actor Ana de Armas, who faced criticism online over her accent in the trailer for the Netflix biopic "Blonde."

Two of the leaders of the entertainment company that oversees Monroe's estate said in statements Tuesday that they support the decision to cast de Armas in the movie, an NC-17 psychodrama scheduled for release next month.

"It’s thrilling to see all of the different portrayals of her by celebrities and actors from Kim Kardashian to Michelle Williams and now Ana De Armas," said Nick Woodhouse, Authentic Brands Group president and chief marketing officer.

"There are no rules when it comes to how an artist can honor her legacy. We embrace new interpretations of Marilyn that pay homage to her iconic star power, beauty and humanity, and bring her into relevant cultural conversations."

Kardashian wore Monroe’s famed “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” gown to the Met Gala in May. Williams played Monroe in the 2011 film “My Week with Marilyn,” earning an Oscar nomination for her performance.
