Fun Facts About Hollywood Legend Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn is reported to have met Albert Einstein at a party and said “We should have kids.  Imagine if they had my looks and your brains.”  His response:  “Imagine if they had my looks and your brains.”

Mitzi Gaynor was director Billy Wilder’s first choice for the role of Sugar Kane in “Some Like It Hot.”  Marilyn starred in the movie instead, and it became one of her most critically acclaimed films.

Marilyn left her belongings to her acting coach, Lee Strasberg.  His widow had nearly 1,500 of the items auctioned.  The dress Marilyn wore while singing “Happy Birthday” to President John F. Kennedy sold for $1,267,500 – the most ever paid for a dress.  Proceeds from her fur collection were sold to benefit the World Wildlife Foundation.

Marilyn’s first nude scene in a movie was planned for “Something’s Gotta Give.”  The film –  a remake of the 1940’s “My Favorite Wife” – was abandoned following her death.  It was later remade as “Move Over, Darling” with James Garner and Doris Day.

Marilyn Monroe was author Truman Capote’s first choice to play the Audrey Hepburn role in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”
