Mônica Martelli comments on Bruna and Gabriel’s case on the BBB: “Abusive relationship” Splash

Actress Mônica Martelli, 54, in an interview with the newspaper O Globo:

Autobiographical play My Life on Mars: “If you revisit a moment of yours but are already outside of it, that heals. Every time I do the piece I heal more. the text and I don’t live that situation anymore, it’s not mine anymore, it already is Having become art, it already has a mission, which is to get people to think about and look inside their marriages.”

The Deconstruction of Romance: “There comes a time in marriage when there is no more love, there are plans for the future that you don’t want to give up. And what is love? This romantic love that we have learned is an unreal love that is incompatible with life and routine. I think all this explains the success [de Minha Vida à Marte].”

Relationship of daughter Júlia, 13 years old, to the show: “She said, ‘Mom, by the end of the play, when they don’t get along well, he’s cheating on her and she’s thinking about cheating too. Did dad cheat on you and you cheated on dad?’ She asked this question for the first time. I replied, “My love, I don’t even consider that a betrayal.” Because by the end of the marriage, when we lost each other, when we started to get interested in other people, we weren’t married anymore. There was no more love.”

Dialogue with the daughter: “I’m trying to convey that she can count on me for whatever she needs and that she doesn’t have to hide things that she fears or doubts. I think she needs to have her privacy too. There are things she didn’t have to tell. Not everything we have to tell for father and mother. In terms of sexuality and love life, I think I’m ready to speak because of your questions.”

Relationship between Bruna Griphao and Gabriel at BBB 23: “With this issue that happens at BBB, an abusive relationship, I say, ‘Daughter, do you see how it is? Do you see how women are being silenced and pushed into the background?”

She suffered rape as a teenager: “These are situations that we have experienced, especially in my generation, that have been normalized. Fighting a physical war with a boy was the most normal thing. The boy tried and the girl didn’t want to. It was my case. It was a boy I was in love with. We went to the luau. He tried, I didn’t want to, but it happened. I said, “Okay, great, it happened. Cool, it was my first time at the luau’. Then I thought, ‘This is what constitutes rape’.” Remember the case.

Awareness of the new generations: “It is important to pass on to the next generations that we cannot normalize the absurdities that happen in our lives. We tend to normalize tragedy. She has been normalized. Like many carnivals in Salvador and how many blocks we walk by and get a hand on our butt and say nothing. Today I would turn around and say, ‘What happened?’”
