IT WAS RUMORED THEY SAY....WELL NO..... IT WAS A FACT AND WRITTEN ABOUT IN SOME OF THE MANY BOOKS ON MARILYN.
NOW IF YOU HAVE SEEN PHOTOS OF MARILYN FROM A TEEN YOU WILL SEE SHE WAS ACTUALLY PRETTY PLAIN LOOKING IN HER YOUNG TEENS, NOTHING TO WRITE HOME ABOUT AS WE SAY.
BUT..... THE OLDER SHE GOT THE PRETTIER SHE GOT, AND SHE WAS VERY PRETTY AS SHE REACHED THE 20 YEAR MARK, AND CERTAINLY NO PLASTIC SURGERY AT THAT AGE.
TRUTH IS THIS NEW REVELATION WAS REALLY SO MINOR IT HAD LITTLE TO DO WITH HER OVER-ALL PRETTINESS. AND THEY ARE TRYING TO MAKE OUT THAT WHEN SHE DID GET THIS LITTLE PLASTIC SURGERY IT WAS KINDA UN-HEARD OF.
NOT SO..... BOB NOLAN OF THE FAME WITH ROY ROGERS AND SONS OF THE PIONEERS IN THE 1940s WAS PERSUADED TO HAVE HIS ROMAN NOSE REDUCED SO NOT AS NOTICABLE AS SAY TOM CRUISE'S ROMAN NOSE.
IT IS INTERESTING HOW AGE WILL MAKE SOME PEOPLE BETTER LOOKING; THIS WAS THE CASE WITH MARILYN AS SHE AGED INTO HER 20s ...... AND IT WAS CERTAINLY TRUE OF ROY ROGERS, HE GOT BETTER LOOKING INTO HIS 30s and 40s FOR SURE, LIKE A DIFFERENT FACE FROM IN HIS 20s. AND ROY HAD NO PASTIC SURGERY EVER.
I HAVE A PHOTO OF MARILYN WHEN WORKING IN A REGUALR JOB, WAY BEFORE SHE WAS "NOTICED"..... WELL THE PHOTO GOT HER NOTICED BY THIS GUY WHO CAME TO THE PLANT AND TOOK IT.....AND SHE WAS INDEED AS PRETTY AS PIE, WAY BEFORE ANY OF WHAT THE BBC NEWS IS PROCLAIMING.....SHE WAS INDEED BY THAT AGE NATURALLY PRETTY.
SO BBC MAKING A MOUNTAIN OUT OF A MOLE HILL.
AND AS WE ARE TALKING ABOUT MARILYN JUST GOT TO ADD THIS:
Remembrance: Lamenting- Marilyn Monroe
If my life could be lived again I would make every decision — except about being an actress — differently. But the result would probably be the same, so it has all been worth it.
Bill Pursel: 'She didn't find the little cottage and white picket fence; the three children and loving dog she sought. She loved the publicity and attention she attracted, but she was not happy. She sank into the quicksand of Hollywood like many others have done, but placing blame for the inevitable is folly. I was surprised at her death. What a tragedy. Norma Jeane had a pure soul, and an immense love of life. She was kind and generous; loved children and animals and had a strong backbone - she almost single-handed made herself a world renowned star and was so profound I was almost afraid of her. To me she was like a dream and that is what she really was. Raising this past has brought melancholy to a very private part of my life and if Norma Jeane is looking down on all this, I hope she is smiling.'
A. C. Lyles: 'I join all her friends in Hollywood who had the privilege of knowing her; we remember her with devotion and love. Each of us felt a personal loss and the industry was deprived of a great talent at an early age. As time goes on she becomes more legend. One has only to 'say "Marilyn" and everyone knows that means Marilyn MonroeuHer first name is all the identification needed.'
George Chakiris: 'When Marilyn died, I was in Japan making a movie and I remember being so sad because it seemed to be our loss. But she lives forever on film, she gave so much, she had a deep caring for her work and cared a great deal. Actors care about the parts they play, but Marilyn cared even deeper. She was glorious, something else. She stands alone and is incredibly unique. When I need cheering up, I watch "Diamonds" or the opening number of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and it lifts my spirits. Marilyn was a lovely, kind person who wouldn't hurt a fry; she was adorable but that isn't even a good enough word. She was so gifted.'
Jim Gough: 'The memories I have of Marilyn are of a friendly person, full of attention for everyone, from bricklayers to painters and artists. She was far from being a snob, an eccentric, or a manic-depressive during the times I spent with her. Marilyn was slender and full of energy, at peace with herself, and concerned about other people's wellbeing. She was eagerly facing the future and anxious to see what might happen next. She was in full control of her life and seemed to be looking forward to her career as a mature actress. She was excited to harvest the fruits of her labour; her two most precious possessions, were her house and her little white dog, Maf, whom she adored so much.'
ONE OF THE GREAT SAYINGS I LOVE FROM MARILYN IS THIS ONE:
"I DON'T MIND LIVING IN A MAN'S WORLD, AS LONG AS I CAN BE A WOMAN IN IT."
AND INDEED SHE WAS QUITE THE WOMAN, NOT JUST PRETTY ON THE OUTSIDE, BUT HAD ALSO A WONDERFUL NATURE ON THE INSIDE.
Joe Coudert: 'It was a surprise when she passed away, since she was so young. That made it even more tragic for us, and we were greatly saddened. I often wonder what Ms Monroe would have been like if she was alive today .... Clearly, she would be the
Queen of Hollywood.'
Queen of Hollywood.'
YES INDEED SHE WOULD BE QUEEN OF HOLLYWOOD IF ALIVE TODAY.
AGAIN WHEN YOU SEE THE 2014 CALENDARS OF MARILYN, AT LEAST YOU WHO READ THIS BOG WILL KNOW THE REAL MARILYN, JUST AS BEAUTIFUL ON THE INSIDE.
