“And Marilyn was insecure about her beauty, her acting, and herself. She was never late in the morning. In fact, she arrived hours before the rest. But after her beauty makeup and hair styling, she felt unworthy of being a star. She felt she had not much talent and was ashamed. What people called her tardiness and temperament was really her humiliation. I tried to help her.”
Yves Montand about Marilyn Monroe to Shirley MacLaine in 1961.
