Taylor Russell is compared to Marilyn Monroe by Mark Rylance: It's a Surprise How Similar They Are ...

Taylor Russell has made films reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe, a film legend.

Mark Rylance, Russell's co-star, explained how the up-and-coming actress was influenced by Monroe, who played a "Gentleman Prefer Blondes" character.

Rylance told Harper's Bazaar that people couldn't see what Marilyn Monroe was doing on set.

'That was my surprise for me,' he said, adding, 'It's amazing how much the camera penetrates a person's inner self.'

Russell and Timothée Chalamet played two star-crossed lovers who share a fascination for cannibalism. Rylance was one nomad who crosses paths with the couple.

Sissy Spacek has been credited as her "favorite actress of all time" and a major inspiration by Russell.

"Acting is the opposite of running away," Russell said. "It illuminates something."

Russell praised the script for Luca Guadagnino's 'Bones and All,' which had a tone similar to Spacek's in Terrence Malick's 'Badlands.' "It was so sincere," she said.

Russell was seen chomping down maraschino cherries, dark chocolate, and Fruit Roll-Ups in "Bones and All."

'It was very tasty and [tastier] than anything else you could imagine,' she said of eating the replicated bloody body parts.

In "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?", Russell's performance isn't the only one to draw comparisons to famous Hollywood actors from the past. Eric Roberts praises Margot Robbie for displaying the same intensity as Elizabeth Taylor and Sandy Dennis.

Margot Robbie will receive an Academy Award for her performance in 'Babylon,' according to Roberts. "She gave the most incredible performance in 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?', and it's on that level. She blew me away."

For Andrew Dominik's controversial Netflix film "Blonde," Monroe was also reimagined onscreen by Ana de Armas.
