When you browse informal photos of Marilyn Monroe, there are three recurring themes: she’s often in bed, napping, lounging, daydreaming; two, there’s always a drink at hand; and three, she’s on the phone a lot—a lot. I bet that in this age, she’d been an avid online chatter.
That she’s often seen with a drink doesn’t mean she was a drunk though: it was common to drink in those days.
The photo was taken in 1955. It’s not as sharp as I would like, but this seems to be the highest quality it’s in.
