'I'd Kill Myself If I Was As Fat As Marilyn Monroe'
I'm a HUGE Marilyn Monroe fan, and I generally like Elizabeth Hurley. I mean, as an actress, she had her moments. Now, it appears, she's a full-time wife, mom and businesswoman. Good for her! I didn't take umbrage with Elizabeth's catty remark about Marilyn. I think she said it in jest! As someone posted on these boards, earlier, women's clothes sizes have changed since Marilyn's time.
When Marilyn's clothes were sold at public auction, some years ago, they had to import mannequins from Europe to display them, because - believe it or not - she was tiny! American mannequin's were TOO BIG! On the day she died, Marilyn Monroe was 5'5 1/2" tall, and she weighed 117 pounds. Elizabeth Hurley is taller (5'9") and it's reported that she weighs 125 pounds. So, dear Liz, Marilyn was NOT fat, at all!!
