How many of Marilyn Monroe’s problems were really caused by her difficult childhood and her difficult marriages?
I guess some would call this an “unpopular opinion” - but I attribute it to her acting classes at the actors studio.
She had starred in some of her greatest starring roles by the end of 1954, before she took any of those stupid classes, which occupied her for much of 1955.
Gentlemen prefer blondes, how to marry a millionaire, monkey business and the seven year itch all pre-dated her idiotic decision in 1955 to go to New York and study The Method.
- I think method acting warps the minds of most of the people who study it.
- It doesn’t make them better actors; it makes them nuts.
