"Ever notice how 'What the hell' is always the right answer?"

Norma Jean Mortenson (June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962)

Those are the wise & witty words from Miss Monroe. I missed last weeks Hollywood Tuesday & I don't want to do it again! So even though it is way late Tuesday almost into Kinky Wednesday I'll give you ladies & gentlemen - Marilyn. My all time favorite Hollywood heroine. Beauty & brains & talents wrapped up in a fantastic, but fragile personality.

My God she was gorgeous! I can't even pick one favorite shot of her, because I love all pictures of her. I allready did a little tribute to her a while ago on the rainbowblog so if you've seen some of the snaps before, just enjoy them once again... I did also include some new fantastic finds though.

So what is it about this woman that drove & still drive people mad about her? So flirtatious, stunning & witty. Playing the game & mastering it. Hollywood never knew what hit them until she was gone to soon.

I wonder what she would've thought of the world of today?

I know there was talk of a Marilyn Movie coming up a few years ago & I actually think it was last Hollywood Tuesday's lovely Scarlett J. who was to play the part of M. I wonder what happened to that project? I wouldnøt mind seeing that movie sometime soon...

Anyways I'll  let you enjoy the pictures of this Hollywood goddess & leave you with some of my favorite Monroe Quotes:

"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."

"Beneath the makeup and behind the smile I am just a girl who wishes for the world."

"I don't mind living in a man's world, as long as I can be a woman in it."

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."

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

"It's all make believe, isn't it?"

"I love to do the things the censors won't pass."

"If you can make a girl laugh, you can make her do anything."

"When it comes down to it, I let them think what they want. If they care enough to bother with what I do, then I'm already better than them."

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

"She was a girl who knew how to be happy even when she was sad. And that’s important—you know "

"This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, somg go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they'll come and go too. And babve, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can't give up becuase if you give up, you'll never find your soul mate. You'll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn't mean you're gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about."

"We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle."

"I want to grow old without facelifts. I want to have the courage to be loyal to the face I have made."

"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."
