Marilyn by Ed Feingersh. this pic was taken while she was getting ready for her big debut riding on the Barnum & Bailey pink elephant. backstage was no picnic, she had a 'bout of anxiety, severe stage fright... here she is in tears at the mercy of her low self esteem. she almost didnt go thru with it.

Myth: Marilyn Monroe was a plus sized 16. Truth: For most of her career Marilyn Monroe had a 22-24 inch waist (a modern day size 0 to 2). The only time Marilyn was heavy enough to possibly wear a size 16 (a modern size 6) was when she was pregnant (she miscarried at about 5 months). Still want to look up to her as a realistic weight goal?
