“No director ever said ‘Now Marilyn, be sexy’. Sex isn’t a thing apart, it’s all of you. Sometimes, after a scene, somebody will say ‘Great! Very sexy Marilyn.’ But I have just done something natural.” – Marilyn Monroe

(On her duty to her fans and never doing things by halves)

“The least I can do is give them the best they can get from me. What’s the good of drawing in the next breath if all you do is let it out and draw in another?” – Marilyn Monroe

„One way basically to handle fame is with honesty, and I mean it and the other way to handle it when something happens – as things have happened recently, and I’ve had other things happen to me, suddenly, my goodness, the things they try to take - I handle with silence“ – Marilyn Monroe

About Marilyn Monroe:

( on if she got along with Marilyn )

“Absolutley. Very, very well. We had a great time on ‘How To Marry A Millionaire’. Betty Grable, who was one of the funniest, most adorable women, I was crazy about her and Marilyn, who was just sweet. There was nothing mean about Marilyn.” – Lauren Bacall

About Marilyn Monroe:

(On Marilyn’s lateness)

“She was late a lot. But she wasn’t late to make a statement, she was late because she was frightened and because she was insecure. And she had, you know, quite a lousy childhood, I think.” – Lauren Bacall

Hey Honey,

If you want to read a fictional story about Maf and Marilyn you should buy

The Life and Opinions of Maf the Dog, and of his friend Marilyn Monroe

here are some dog related quotes said by Miss Monroe

"Dogs never bite me. Just Humans." - Marilyn Monroe

"I like animals. If you talk to a dog or a cat it doesn’t tell you to shut up." - Marilyn Monroe

Here are some (rare) pictures of Maf as a puppy taken by Marilyn herself and some short information about him

Here is another sad story about Marilyn and her other dog Tibby

Here’s a list with all pets Marilyn ever had (taken from :

1. Tippy: Jippy was a black-and-white dog given to Norma Jeane by her foster father, Albert Wayne Bolender. Every day, Tippy accompanied Norma Jeane to school. He even used to wait ~or her to play with him at recess. Circa 1932, Tippy was shot dead by a neighbor who claimed that Tippy had been rolling around in his garden.

2. A Spaniel: When Norma Jeane lived with the Goddard family, she and her ‘~sister,” Beebe shared a pet spaniel, circa 1940.

3. Muggsie: Jim Dougherty bought his wife a pet collie named Muggsie. However, after she began her modeling career, Norma Jeane had less time for her dog. Subsequently, Muggsie died of a ‘broken heart.”

4. A Chihuahua: At the time she was signed by Columbia Pictures in 1948, Marilyn Monroe owned a pet Chihuahua.

5, Mitsou: Mitsou was a white Persian cat that Marilyn Monroe owned in New York in the mid 1950s.

6. Hugo: A basset hound who lived with MM and Arthur Miller at their East 57th Street apartment in New York. Once, Norman Rosten and Marilyn spoon-fed straight scotch to Hugo to cheer him up. When Marilyn and Arthur split up, Arthur retained possession of Hugo.

7. Butch was a parakeet owned by the Millers. Butch also resided at the East 57th Street apartment.

8. Ebony: A riding horse that the Millers purchased from Frank and Nan Taylor for their Connecticut farm. MM rode Ebony only a few times.

9. Maf: Maf was a little white French poodle who was given to MM in New York by Frank Sinatra. Sinatra had purchased the dog from Natalie Wood’s mother. As has been widely reported, Marilyn named the dog “Maf” because of Frank Sinatra’s alleged mafia connections. lnterestingly, to spite Arthur Miller, Marilyn used to let Maf sleep on an expensive white beaver coat that Miller had presented her. When Marilyn returned to live in Hollywood, she had Maf flown back to be with her. Following her death, Maf was inherited by Frank Sinatra’s secretary, Gloria Lovell.



About Marilyn Monroe:

“She was sweet, and se was just always yearning for someone to…a prince on a white horse to take her away.” – Lauren Bacall


“Sometimes I looked at what they reported me as saying, and I said ‘no, no, no!” – Marilyn Monroe

About Marilyn Monroe:

“Marilyn was frightened, insecure—trusted only her coach and was always late. During our scenes she’d look at my forehead instead of my eyes; at the end of a take, look to her coach, standing behind Jean Negulesco, for approval. If the headshake was no, she’d insist on another take. A scene often went to fifteen or more takes, which meant I’d have to be good in all of them as no one knew which one would be used. Not easy—often irritating. And yet I couldn’t dislike Marilyn. She had no meanness in her—no bitchery. She just had to concentrate on herself and the people who were there only for her. I had met her a few times before, and liked her. Grable and I decided we’d try to make it easier for her, to make her feel she could trust us. I think she finally did.” - Lauren Bacall
