Quotations by Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn MonroeThe real lover is the man who . . . - The real lover is the man who can thrill you by kissing your forehead or smiling into your eyes or just staring into space.

A thousand dollars for a kiss - Hollywood is a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul. I know, because I turned down the first offer often enough and held out for the fifty cents.

I've let people fool themselves - 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.

Imperfection is beauty - Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.

Success makes people hate you - Success makes so many people hate you. I wish it wasn't that way. It would be wonderful to enjoy success without seeing envy in the eyes of those around you.

To all the girls that think you're fat - To all the girls that think you're fat because you're not a size zero, you're the beautiful one, its society who's ugly.

Failure as a woman - I'm a failure as a woman. My men expect so much of me, because of the image they've made of me -- and that I've made of myself -- as a sex symbol. They expect bells to ring and whistles to whistle, but my anatomy is the same as any other woman's and I can't live up to it.

Don't make me a joke - Please don't make me a joke. End the interview with what I believe. I don't mind making jokes, but I don't want to look like one... I want to be an artist, an actress with integrity... If fame goes by, so long, I've had you, fame. If it goes by, I've always known it was fickle. So at least it's something I experienced, but that's not where I live.
