Anna Nicole Smith remains to be one of the most fascinating and misunderstood personalities of our time. From posing on the cover of Playboy to the center of court battles after the death of her billionaire husband, Smith had a life that was very glamorous but also very tragic. However, in Netflix’s upcoming documentary “Anna Nicole Smith: You Don’t Know Me,” we will finally get to see the real person behind the headlines. With never before seen footage and exclusive interviews, this doc promises to paint a complete picture of Anna Nicole’s life, intimate moments, and struggles.

The documentary looks like it goes beyond fame and gives an insight into her upbringing in Houston, Texas. Not everyone knows her childhood was marked with hardship, including her parent’s divorce and her mother’s struggles with addiction.

Understanding her past would let us comprehend how she became the person that captured the attention of the entire world.

Anna Nicole Smith: You Don’t Know Me” will also delve into her meteoric modeling career, and her marriage to J. Howard Marshall II – who was 63 years her senior – and her show, “The Anna Nicole Show.” The show catapulted her to another level of fame, but it also put her private life under a microscope, leading to ruthless tabloid coverage and harsh judgments from the public.

The documentary will also cover the controversies and tragedies that surrounded Anna Nicole after the death of her husband, including the legal battle for his multi-billion dollar fortune and the untimely death of her son Daniel. By understanding the details of her life, we could begin to appreciate the complex person Anna Nicole actually was.

One of the most promising aspects of the documentary is the use of never-before-seen footage, including personal videos and candid interviews. These exclusive materials would let us see Smith as herself, rather than the persona that was created by media hype. We’ll see the intimate moments, the struggles, and the joys that were so often overlooked.

Anna Nicole Smith: You Don’t Know Me” is a documentary that promises to bring a deeper understanding of her as the iconic figure that she was. It gets released on May 16th on Netflix.
