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.
Happy Birthday, Marilyn Monroe! (June 1st 1926 - ∞)
“Everybody knows about her insecurities, but not everybody knows what fun she was, that she never complained about the ordinary things of life, that she never had a bad word to say about anyone, and that she had a wonderful spontaneous sense of humor.” - Sam Shaw.
“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.” - Marilyn Monroe (born June 1st, 1926)
