Facts About Marilyn Monroe :

Two eleven year olds named Jim Robinson and Robert Blewett also decided to hike out to the Beckers Bungalows to get Marilyn’s autograph. This time, her limousine happened to pass by, and she instructed the driver to pull over so she could talk to them. Not only did she give them autographs (“To My Boyfriend Jimmy, Love Marilyn Monroe”), she invited them out to the set for a few days and even told them they could bring along their friend James Kulak.    ”One day,”  said Robinson, who now lives in Vancouver, “Marilyn said, ‘If you can keep a secret, there’s a certain ball played coming into town to see me, and I’d like to take you along to meet him when he gets here.’ So one of our mothers drove us to the little landing strip in Jasper, and we waited around for an hour or so before this small plane flew in. We went  up to the plane, and out of it stepped Joe DiMaggio. And he looked down at us and said, ‘You must be Marilyn’s friends.’”

"Then, when I get into trouble by being too direct and I try to pull back, people think I’m being coy.  I’m supposed to have said that I dislike being interviewed by women reporters, but that it’s different with gentlemen of the press because we have a mutual appreciation of being male and female.  I didn’t say I disliked women reporters.  As dumb as I am, I wouldn’t be that dumb, although that in itself is kind of a mysterious remark because people don’t really know how dumb I am.  But I really do prefer men reporters.  They’re more stimulating.” - Marilyn Monroe

5am and still no sleep in sight. Watching My Week With Marilyn. Thought it might be the right film to watch. Marilynettes know why ;) 
"Nobody’s really ever been able to tell me why I sleep so badly, but I know once I begin thinking, it’s goodbye, sleep […] but sometimes I can’t sleep whatever I’m doing, unless I take some pills. And then it’s only a drugged sleep. It’s not the same as really sleeping" - Marilyn Monroe
