Marilyn Monroe Explains That Quote About Wearing Chanel No. 5 to Bed



Legend has it that Marilyn Monroe wore nothing but "a few drops of Chanel No. 5" to bed, but it was only last month that the world got an explanation for her famous quote.

"You know they ask you questions," Monroe said during an April 1960 interview with French journalist Georges Belmont. "Just an example: 'What do you wear to bed? Do you wear a pajama top, the bottoms of the pajamas, or a nightgown?' So I said, 'Chanel No. 5!' Because it's the truth! And yet I don't want to say 'nude,' you know? But it's the truth."

The rest of the interview made it into an issue of Marie Claire, but the bit about Chanel wasn't used in the article. In October, Chanel uncovered the recording of the interview and used it to make the fascinating video below.
