Marilyn Monroe Quotations

Guest Author - Danielle Hollister

Marilyn Monroe 1926-1962


Marilyn On Acting

  • "My illusions didn't have anything to do with being a fine actress. I knew how third rate I was. I could actually feel my lack of talent, as if it were cheap clothes I was wearing inside. But, my God, how I wanted to learn, to change, to improve !"

  • "If I play a stupid girl and ask a stupid question I've got to follow it through. What am I supposed to do - look intelligent ?"

  • "One of the things about leaving Hollywood and coming to New York and attending the Actor's Studio is that I feel I can afford to be more myself. After all, if I can't be myself, who can I be I would like to know."

  • "Acting isn't something you do. Instead of doing it, it occurs. If you're going to start with logic, you might as well give up. You can have conscious preparation, but you have unconscious results."

  • "An actress is not a machine, but they treat you like a machine. A money machine."

  • "An actor is supposed to be a sensitive instrument. Isaac Stern takes good care of his violin. What if everyone jumped on his violin?"

  • "Goethe said, 'Talent is developed in privacy,' you know? And it's really true. There is a need for aloneness which I don't think most people realize for an actor. It's almost having certain kinds of secrets for yourself that you'll let the whole world in on only for a moment, when you're acting."

  • "I love to do the things the censors won't pass."

  • "The trouble with censors is that they worry if a girl has cleavage. They ought to worry if she hasn't any."

  • "Please don't make me a joke. End the interview with what I believe. I don't mind making jokes, but I don't want to look like one. I want to be an artist, an actress with integrity."

  • "Dreaming about being an actress, is more exciting then being one."
