♥ Marilyn's Diary ♥

Hi I'm Paul and this blog is dedicated to the wonderful Miss Marilyn Monroe ! I post quotes said by or about Marilyn. Ask me anything you'd like and I'll try my best to answer!
Reporter:
"I’ve read that at least half of the photographs taken of you are killed because they are too revealing."
Marilyn Monroe:
"That’s the Johnston Office for you. They’re very small about stuff like that, and what the Johnston Office passes, the studio ruins with retouching.  After one sitting of thirty poses, twenty-eight of those poses were killed.  The Johnston Office spends a lot of time worrying about whether a girl has cleavage of not.  They ought to worry if she doesn’t have any.  That really would make people emotionally disturbed.  I don’t know what their reasoning is. They certainly can’t expect girls to look like boys."
