Want to reblog tacky graphics, reblog this one! I think Marilyn’s real quotes are much better than the rubbish, internet teenage girl inspiration quotes.

Marilyn Monroe by George Barris, 1962. These were the last professional photographs taken of Marilyn before her death in August 1962.

She was a person of passion and great love, even when things were not going well for her. Sometimes I felt a sadness watching her, a beautiful girl who had achieved the impossible, a dream of all beautiful, talented girls - fame as an actress on the silver screen. I could see a sadness in her eyes; she had learned to smile, laugh, and clown, even though her heart was breaking. 

- George Barris in “Marilyn: Her Life In Her Own Words

Marilyn Monroe by Anthony Beauchamp, 1951.

It’s a bit late, but does anyone have a copy of ELLE Magazine Australia with Margot Robbie on the cover? I arranged to buy one of someone but they haven’t been in touch since and I can’t find it anywhere on eBay. I have a new ELLE Uk from the same month I’d be happy to swap for, please message me if interested, thank you!

Anonymous asked: What do you think of the way Marilyn is portrayed today? She seems more like a brand than an actual person nowadays.

I couldn’t agree more, but she will always be a person to me.
