Marilyn Monroe's ID Sells for a Crapload of Cash


How much would you pay to take home the ID card Marilyn Monroe herself toted around Korea while honeymooning with Joe DiMaggio and performing for the United States' troops? A lot? How about $57,000? As the guys on "Pawn Stars" might say, "that's not even close to what I was thinking," but lo and behold someone did indeed pony up that kind of loot for that one little piece of government-issued paper.

Michelle Williams Takes It to the Next Level in 'My Week With Marilyn'

Michelle Williams must have really tough skin.

When it was announced that the Academy Award-nominated ex-"Dawson's Creek" alum would star as Marilyn Monroe in the period romp "My Week With Marilyn," fans of the screen legend were no doubt worried. Sure, Williams has proven to be one of our generation's most gifted actresses, known for her soul-baring work in passion projects like "Blue Valentine" and "Meek's Cutoff." But versatile?

Megan Fox can't seem to give an interview without seeing some tiny nugget of quotage being spun into controversy.

Just look at some of the latest Fox news headlines, which quote the "Transformers" actress as saying she's removing the tattoo of Marilyn Monroe she has on her right forearm because the late icon is "a negative character" who suffered from "personal disorders and was bipolar."

"The point I was trying to make is that I feel like this person, her death was surrounded in negativity and she lived a hard and difficult life and I feel like inking something like that on your skin may not be the best thing to do," Fox told NextMovie exclusively in an interview at the Toronto Film Festival for her upcoming romantic dramedy "Friends With Kids."

"As I've grown I feel like I want very positive things around me and I feel like she suffered, not because I don't love her, but she clearly suffered as a human being." Get More »

Laurence Olivier made a cameo in "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow." The deceased Marlon Brando spoke again in "Superman Returns." Just this year, a 61-year-old Jeff Bridges fought a mid-20s version of himself in "Tron Legacy."

Resurrecting the dead is very real with digital technology playing the part of the lightning bolt or ancient zombie curse.

According to The Star (via The Guardian), Canadian businessman Jamie Salter is about to push the boundaries of this budding technology by having Marilyn Monroe cast in a new feature film. Using computers, Salter believes he can recreate Marilyn Monroe so faithfully, that she could star alongside real actors in a new movie. Get More »
