The life of others often interests me, I like being an observer in life, well, what I mean is I’m a really curious person who is always trying to understand everything, always trying to find reasons to why things happen, so people intrigue me. Where I’m going with this? I have no idea.
Oh wait I do, I do. Because people intrigue me, famous people who are always in the spotlight intrigue me a lot. When I was 16 I found a quote of Milton Greene’s (Marilyn Monroe’s personal photographer) wife, Amy Greene and I loved it. Marilyn Monroe always keeps me thinking, her life, her tragic end, she’s such and interesting person to know about. Anyway, I’ll leave it here for you to read.
“I’ll never forget the day Marilyn and I were walking around New York City, just having a stroll on a nice day. She loved New York because no one bothered her there like they did in Hollywood, she could put on her plain-jane clothes and no one would notice her. She loved that. So as we we’re walking down Broadway, she turns to me and says ‘Do you want to see me become her?’ I didn’t know what she meant but I just said ‘Yes’- and then I saw it. I don’t know how to explain what she did because it was so very subtle, but she turned something on within herself that was almost like magic. And suddenly cars were slowing and people were turning their heads and stopping to stare. They were recognizing that this was Marilyn Monroe as if she pulled off a mask or something, even though a second ago nobody noticed her. I had never seen anything like it before.” -Amy Greene, wife of Marilyn’s personal photographer Milton Greene
