Marilyn Monroe Marilyn six weeks before she passed, still as ethereal and beautiful inside and out as ever by the wonderful George Barris in July, 1962 for Cosmopolitan Magazine.

"I once had love for a man who had a son from a previous marriage." he said: "If we were to marry + anything should happen to me such as dropping dead- it would be very bad for him". "why? I asked. he said: "It wouldn't be right for him to be brought up by a woman like you.. It would be unfair to him.". "After he left I cried all night.. I knew I had to leave him." MM 1953

Totally sad that her beauty and feminine wiles actually caused her death, not to mention her addiction to drugs and men. All she wanted was to be loved, now she is immortalized for her beauty and her sad life
