You know most of those quotes aren't by Marilyn (like that Imperfection is beauty etc; she was a perfectionist, and her family had a history of insanity/madness....)

Yeah, Marilyn was definitely not dumb. She played dumb (brilliantly!) for the ditzy roles she had, but in her free time, she was reading Schopenhauer. I've always felt bad for her — so desperate for love and respect, and almost girlish in her desire for those things. She was, as Truman Capote put it, a beautiful child.

Anon, it's because most women don't look like Marilyn. Also, the hair doesn't look natural, and it didn't on her either.

I love the last photo, she looks stunning without trying too hard. I don't believe that she was an idiot, but she had an unhappy childhood from what I've read and she had such an unhappy life, poor thing. I like the photos where she isn't trying too hard to look sexy, somehow she is much more beautiful in those ones.

That 10th photo is GORGEOUS, she looks so happy. I'm of the belief a smile makes someone beautiful and sexy

Gorgeous and she had a marvelous insight into herself which was often overlooked. I love her!
