Whoopi Goldberg shared that her will contains a bizarre clause that will prevent any future unauthorized biopics being made after her death.

During ABC’s talkshow “The View” on Tuesday, the cohosts were discussing the “backlash” against Andrew Dominik’s movie “Blonde” as a “gratuitous exploitation” of the late-Marilyn Monroe.

Co-host Sunny Hostin then suggested people will be dying to make film’s about Goldberg after she passes away.

“It sounds macabre, but I was speaking to Whoopi, and I was saying that she’s such a famous person that when she passes away, people are going to make films,” Hostin shared on the show.

Her co-host Goldberg then interjected and said that wouldn’t be happening and said she’s taken legal action to make sure it doesn’t.

“Actually they’re not,” the “Sister Act” star explained.  “They’re not going to make films, because in my will it says, ‘Unless you speak to my family, try it.’ Okay, try it.”


The overall opinion on the show was that the movie — starring Ana De Armas as the iconic late Hollywood screen legend — was that the film was bad and unwatchable, mentioning that there were rape scenes with no “trigger warnings.”

De Armas previously spoke about the things she did in the movie and said she did it for Monroe, as previously reported.

The “Knives Out” star talked about her portrayal of the screen legend’s short life, including depictions of sexual violence and degradation in the NC-17 film.

“I did things in this movie I would have never done for anyone else, ever,” Ana explained. “I did it for her [Marilyn], and I did it for Andrew [Dominik].”

“We’re telling her story,” she added. “From her point of view. I’m making people feel what she felt. When we had to shoot these kinds of scenes, like the one with [President John F.] Kennedy, it was difficult for everybody. But at the same time, I knew I had to go there to find the truth.”

The scene mentioned included Kennedy, played by Caspar Phillipson, forcing her character to perform oral sex on him.
