“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” – Marilyn Monroe
I’m fascinated.. beyond fascinated, actually… with the Golden Age of Hollywood (one of my blogs that proves it). The clothes, the movies, the music, the relationships, and, most of all, the people. Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Katharine Hepburn, Rita Hayworth, Lucille Ball, Marlon Brando, James Stewart…. All fascinating people to say the least.
The wonderful thing about Marilyn Monroe is that she had a lot of intelligence and wit beneath the beauty that made the world drop its collective jaw. Each time I read one of her quotes or interviews, I just sit there, transfixed.
Beauty, talent, intellect, and a biting sense of humor. I love to read about Marilyn Monroe, but I also hate to read about Marilyn Monroe. It’s just so insanely tragic that her demons took control and, ultimately, won the fight. If only uncommon strength had been amongst her many attributes.
Being a sex symbol is a heavy load to carry, especially when one is tired, hurt and bewildered.– Marilyn Monroe
