Marilyn On Hollywood

Guest Author - Danielle Hollister


Marilyn On Hollywood

  • "I disappeared because if people won't listen to you, there's no point in talking to people. If they won't listen, you're just banging your head against a wall. If you can't do what they want to do, the thing is to leave. I never got a chance to learn anything in Hollywood. They worked me too fast. They rushed me from one picture into another."

  • "I'm for the individual as opposed to the corporation. The way it is the individual is the underdog, and with all the things a corporation has going for them the individual comes out banged on her head. The artist is nothing. It's really tragic."

  • "The truth is I've never fooled anyone. I've let people fool themselves. They didn't bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me. I wouldn't argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody. I wasn't. When they found this out, they would blame me for disillusioning them… and fooling them."

  • "I've often stood silent at a party for hours listening to my movie idols turn into dull and little people."

  • "I don't understand why people aren't a little more generous with each other."

  • "In Hollywood a girl's virtue is much less important than her hairdo. You're judged by how you look, not by what you are. Hollywood's a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for kiss, and fifty cents for your soul. I know, because I turned down the first offer often enough and held out for the fifty."

  • "Sometimes I've been to a party where noone spoke to me for a whole evening. The men, frightened by their wives or sweeites...the ladies would gang up in a corner and discuss my dangerous character."

  • "Everybody is always tugging at you. They'd all like a sort of chunk out of you. I don' think they realize it, but it's like 'grrr do this, grr do that...' But you do want to stay intact and on two feet."
