Thoughts On Marilyn...

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes...the ultimate blonde bombshell and sex symbol of her time. Marilyn most, perceived as the ultimate blonde bimbo of all time. I thought that too, until I stumbled on some of her quotes...and realised that she was no fool, but rather simply an ordinary girl just looking for love and adoration. These are some of the things she had to say...

"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.”

"If you can't handle me at my worst, you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."

"Hollywood is a place where they pay you a thousand bucks for a kiss, and 50c for your soul".

"Men - always leave them before they have the chance to leave you."

In retrospect...despite the glitz, glamour and stardom, a very lonely woman who, it seems, never quite found what she was looking for. Maybe precisely because of that...

Let's be kind to those like her today who walk among us. If we are not our sister's keeper, let us at least not be her executioner. She died when I was a very young child, but I love her films.

That's for sure. Tragic indeed.
