    Wow. She said a grand total of ONE of these. And maybe not even that one. On a site as read as this one, why wouldn’t you at least post something accurate?

  • Janie Gray

    I’m sorry to have to tell you this, but only two of these quotes were ever actually said by Marilyn, the one that is ‘I’d rather be unhappy alone…” and the one about “Fear is stupid…” (where you have actually combined two quotes that were said two years apart from one another.) The rest are absolutely fictitious and made up and only started circulating on the internet in the last few years. Please do not continue to attribute quotes to her that she did not say, Marilyn herself spoke about how much she hated that:

    “I refuse to let articles appear in movie magazines signed ‘By Marilyn
    Monroe’. I might never see that article and it might be okayed by
    someone in the studio. This is wrong, because when I was a little girl
    read signed stories in fan magazines and I believed every word the stars
    said in them. Then I’d try to model my life after the lives of the
    stars I read about. If I’m going to have that kind of influence, I want
    to be sure it’s because of something I’ve actually said or written”
