Marilyn Monroe Covers Vanity Fair June 2012

Posted Tuesday May 1, 2012 10:13 AM GMT

She's a legend of her time, and Marilyn Monroe is featured on the cover of the June 2012 issue of Vanity Fair magazine.

The blonde beauty is shown in never before seen outtakes from her last on-set shoot with quotes in the accompanying article giving insight into Miss Monroe's eventful life.

Highlights from Miss Monroe's column are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Vanity Fair!

On her attention-grabbing plans for Fox to pick up a poolside shoot in which she’d jump in the water with a bathing suit on—and come out without it:
“Larry (Lawrence Schiller), if I do come out of the pool with nothing on, I want your guarantee that when your pictures appear on the covers of magazines Elizabeth Taylor is not anywhere in the same issue.”

On getting a $25,000 payday from Hugh Hefner for a single shot:
"There isn’t anybody that looks like me without clothes on.”

On rejection:
“I could tell you all about rejection. Sometimes I feel my whole life has been one big rejection.” “But look at you now,” Lawrence Schiller said. “Exactly,” she replied. “Look at me now.”

On confiding her deepest worry:
“I’ve always wanted a baby. Having a child, that’s always been my biggest fear. I want a child and I fear a child. Whenever it came close, my body said no and I lost the baby.”

On her assumed identity, and where Norma Jeane fit in:
“I never wanted to be Marilyn—it just happened. Marilyn’s like a veil I wear over Norma Jeane... I always have a full-length mirror next to the camera when I’m doing publicity stills. That way, I know how I look.”

On her questions about her purpose:
“It’s still about nudity. Is that all I’m good for? I’d like to show that I can get publicity without using my ass or getting fired from a picture.”
