2nd Installment of "My Tribute To Marilyn"



Did You Know?

She Once Roomed With Shelley Winters

A couple of years later, a now-21-year-old Marilyn Monroe roomed with fellow actress Shelley Winters, who was six years older. They shared not only an apartment and cooking duties but also clothing and intimate secrets. They each made a list of famous men they'd like to make love to and told each other who was on it. One of the men on Monroe's list was future third husband Arthur Miller. Winters was also instrumental later in persuading Monroe to move to New York and study at the Actors' Studio.

Winters has recounted several stories about living with Monroe. She claimed responsibility for teaching Monroe how to smile in a sultry way, with her chin up and her lips parted ever so slightly. She also told of how she once asked inexperienced cook Monroe to wash the lettuce, only to come home to find Monroe scrubbing the lettuce in a tub of soapy water.
