Ana de Armas: Norma Jeane
Norma Jeane : Marilyn doesn't exist. When I come out of my dressing room, I'm Norma Jeane. I'm still her when the camera is rolling. Marilyn Monroe only exists on the screen.
Norma Jeane : But where does dreaming end and madness begin? Anyway, isn't all love based on delusion?
Joe : How did you get your start?
Norma Jeane : What start?
Joe : In movies.
Norma Jeane : I guess I was discovered.
Norma Jeane : I'll get five thousand dollars and Jane Russell gets a hundred thousand... and I'm playing the blonde in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes? That's an insult. I'm gonna hang up now. Goodbye.
I.E. Shinn : Marilyn, wait...
Norma Jeane : Fuck Marilyn. She's not here.
Norma Jeane : Daddy, you won't ever write about me, will you?
The Playwright : Darling, of course not. Why would I do such a thing?
Norma Jeane : It's what people do. Sometimes. Writers.
The Playwright : I'm not other people. You and I are not other people.
Norma Jeane : Daddy, it's so scary, how a scene with actual people just goes on and on.
Nosey Neighbor : So, Marilyn, what's it like being a movie star?
Norma Jeane : Um... I'm not a star. I'm just some blonde.
Norma Jeane : Marilyn Monroe only exists on the screen
