Myths : Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn, August 1953: One of the lost LOOK photos
"It's not true that I had nothing on. I had the radio on." — Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monroe Marilyn Monroe was a screen actress who died under mysterious circumstances that were officially ruled as a suicide. Widely considered to be one of the most beautiful actresses ever, Monroe was married to a few husbands, including baseball player Joe DiMaggio, and is widely rumoured to have had an affair with JFK during his presidency. This was a scene from the movie “The Seven Year Itch”. The location shot in front of the Trans-Lux theatre in New York City had to be redone in the studio due to excessive crowd noise, but it yielded this picture. Date: 1954. Photographer: Matty Zimmerman.

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?
