“Inventing Anna” is one of Netflix’s hits in the first months of 2022. Shonda Rhimes’ new creation is based on a crazy true story. Now that she has been acclaimed by the public, the real Anna comes out of silence and delivers her opinion on the series.
Inventing Anna: a cartoon based on a true story
The beginning of the year 2022 has been placed under the sign of the scam on Netflix. The platform created the event on two counts with The Tinder Scammer and Inventing Anna. For the first, it is a documentary telling how a man-made believe that he was rich in order to extract money from several women. For the second, we are talking about the new creation of Shonda Rhimes (Grey’s Anatomy, The Bridgerton Chronicle).
Its screenplay is inspired by a crazy true story. In this case, that of Anna Delvey, a woman from Russia who defrauded several wealthy Americans pretending to be someone she wasn’t. Undercover a false identity, she was thus able to lead a dream life by taking advantage of other people’s money. Of course, for the needs of the series, a part of fiction mixed with reality.
Inventing Anna was a huge success in terms of audiences. To the point of becoming the most-watched English-language series in the Netflix catalog.
Anna Delvey comes out of the silence
Cosmopolitan was able to contact the real Anna Delvey to find out what she thought of the show:
If she does not deny the outline of the scenario – let us specify that she was tried and condemned guilty – the person concerned considers that certain traits are accentuated. Which he doesn’t necessarily like. She believes, for example, that she has not had a hold on so many people. In addition, she thinks that her personality is not quite the one we want us to believe:
I think I’m more aware of how I behave. Not all the time, but I just don’t think I’m that brazen and shameless.
