Marilyn Monroe Film Opens In New York, Reminding Us All That She Was Pretty Fit

by | 8th, August 2011

PRETTY much everyone on Earth has lusted after Marilyn Monroe at some point. It’s actually become a law that you have to have sexual thoughts about her, even if you have absolutely no interest in the female form.

And now, we’ll get the chance to remember how attractive she was as a film about the late actress’s time in England in 1956 is to premiere at the New York Film Festival.

My Week With Marilyn tells the tale of a brief encounter between Monroe and a set assistant while she was filming The Prince and the Showgirl with Laurence Olivier. Monroe will be played by the also fancied Michelle Williams. Kenneth Branagh star as Olivier to keep our arousal in check.

The film is based on a week that British writer Colin Clark spent with Monroe filming the romcom while the icon was on her honeymoon with playwright Arthur Miller.

Once we’ve all finished swooning at Monroe in this film, we can all go back to being sick of the sight of her for being such an obvious go-to Hollywood pin-up when we generally prefer brunettes. Or men. Or whoever it is you fancy.

Okay? Good.
