American actress, singer, model, and one of the most famous Hollywood icons of the twentieth century.
Marilyn Monroe
If Marilyn is in love with my husband it proves she has good taste, for I am in love with him too.
Monroe quotes
I think that when you are famous every weakness is exaggerated. ... Goethe said, "Talent is developed in privacy," you know? And it's really true. ... Creativity has got to start with humanity and when you're a human being, you feel, you suffer. You're gay, you're sick, you're nervous or whatever.
Monroe
An actress is not a machine, but they treat you like a machine. A money machine.




Monroe Marilyn quotes
I don't know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot.

When Marilyn Monroe got out of the game, I wrote something like, "Southern California's special horror notwithstanding, if the world offered nothing, nowhere to support or make bearable whatever her private grief was, then it is that world, and not she, that is at fault."
I wrote that in the first few shook-up minutes after hearing the bulletin sandwiched in between Don and Phil Everly and surrounded by all manner of whoops and whistles coming out of an audio signal generator, like you are apt to hear on the provincial radio these days. But I don't think I'd take those words back.
Marilyn Monroe quotes
First, I'm trying to prove to myself that I'm a person. Then maybe I'll convince myself that I'm an actress.
Marilyn Monroe
I'm not interested in money, I just want to be wonderful.
Monroe Marilyn quotes
For life: It is rather a determination not to be overwhelmed. For work: The truth can only be recalled, never invented.
Monroe
That's the trouble, a sex symbol becomes a thing. But if I'm going to be a symbol of something, I'd rather it be sex than some of the things we've got symbols of... I just hate to be a thing.
Monroe Marilyn
I've been on a calendar, but never on time.
Marilyn Monroe
I know I will never be happy but I know I can be gay!




Marilyn Monroe quotes
I think Marilyn is bound to make an almost overwhelming impression on the people who meet her for the first time. It is not that she is pretty, although she is of course almost incredibly pretty, but she radiates, at the same time, unbounded vitality and a kind of unbelievable innocence. I have met the same in a lion-cub, which my native servants in Africa brought me. I would not keep her, since I felt that it would in some way be wrong...I shall never forget the almost overpowering feeling of unconquerable strength and sweetness which she conveyed. I had all the wild nature of Africa amicably gazing at me with mighty playfulness.
Marilyn Monroe
Success makes so many people hate you. I wish it wasn't that way. It would be wonderful to enjoy success without seeing envy in the eyes of those around you.
Monroe quotes
Dogs never bite me. Just humans.
Monroe Marilyn
Say good-bye to Pat, say good-bye to Jack and say good-bye to yourself, because you're a nice guy.
Monroe Marilyn quotes
Say goodbye to Pat, say goodbye to the president, and say goodbye to yourself, because you're a nice guy. ... I'll see, I'll see.
Marilyn Monroe
When you're famous you kind of run into human nature in a raw kind of way. It stirs up envy, fame does. People you run into feel that, well, who does she think she is, Marilyn Monroe? They feel fame gives them some kind of privilege to walk up to you and say anything to you, of any kind of nature ó and it won't hurt your feelings ó like it's happening to your clothes not you.
Marilyn Monroe quotes
I am selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you canít handle me at my worst, you sure as hell donít deserve me at my best.
Marilyn Monroe
Arthur Miller wouldn't have married me if I had been nothing but a dumb blonde.
Monroe Marilyn
The truth is I've never fooled anyone. I've let people fool themselves. They didn't bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me. I wouldn't argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody I wasn't. When they found this out, they would blame me for disillusioning them and fooling them.
