When the publication attempted to circle back with the Cuban-born beauty about her changed relationship status, her rep simply told the magazine: ‘We do not have any information to share.’

During the chat, she also revealed it took a lot of hard work to perfect Marilyn Monroe’s signature breathy voice for her role in the upcoming film Blonde. 

‘It only took me nine months of dialect coaching, and practicing, and some ADR sessions,’ she said. ‘It was a big torture, so exhausting. My brain was fried.’

She also pointed out that women in Hollywood face still endure many of the same challenges as their predecessors ‘from the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s.’ 

‘If you don’t have a strong base, with your family and so on, it’s really hard to make it through — really hard,’ she stressed. 

Additionally, she opened up about leaving Cuba as a teen with just about $355 in her pocket.

‘In Cuba, you live in a bubble. I didn’t know what the world was like. I had never travelled before in my life,’ she reflected. 

She added: ‘I guess – and I mean it in the best possible way – being ignorant about some things may help you, because you don’t have any fear. I just went and did it.’

‘If I had to do it now, knowing what it’s like and what I had to go through, I’d be scared. But I’m glad I did it. I didn’t think about it twice,’ the star remarked.
