That was a very smart demand on her part.

She was so farking gorgeous, it's almost painful.

I thought it was going to be something like make sure a copy was sent to Joe DiMaggio so the big dummy knew what he was missing.

I wacky parsed that as "Marilyn Manson" and well....the brain isn't well after that thought.

I was really hoping it would be "you have to be naked while photographing me naked."

I had a gf in college like that. We'd both be naked and take turns passing the Polaroid back and forth. Good times. We also numbered all the photos and returned them to each other after we broke up, as per our original agreement.

Hedy Lamarr stipulated that she wd do nude scene as long as everybody on set was naked as well

I posed nude in my 20's.  I wish the photographer had told me in advance.

Those pictures should be shown to everybody claiming she was a size 16.

She might have been a size 16, but a size 16 back then is entirely different than a size 16 now.

Marilyn Monroe did a night shoot in a pool
Posing naked for a Playboy spread, she was old, but she still was cool
When they wrapped right after midnight, and the crew went to the bar
Norma Jean just did a backstroke, like she was reaching for a falling star.

The fact that the individual in question had any conditions whatsoever on being willing to pose nude should have been your first clue as to the mixup...

This. She sure wasn't a size Zero waif, but she wasn't overweight by any means. Nice classic hourglass figure.

I have a reprint of her Playboy centerfolds...she was quite yummy.

It was funny hearing NPR commentors get all moralistic on the death of Hugh Hefner. One complained that MM didn't get any money from the Playboy centerfold, ignoring she signed a standard modeling contract, just like anyone else.

She had a good plastic surgeon.

$10 an hour in 1946 is $124.93 an hour in today's money. No wonder she's smiling.

That's not dissimilar from modeling contracts today.

Forgot to mention that part.

It's not just NPR. I've seen a number of moralist pontifications on Hefner in a number of different places. The weird part is that I can't seem to tell if the authors are "woman in comfortable shoes" hyper feminists or conservative Christian pearl clutchers. The rhetoric on the topic is nearly indistinguishable.

I hear that chicks prefer to be called dames...

Hefner never met Marilyn.  Marilyn never did a Playboy shoot. The pics used in the first Playboy issues were shot years earlier when Marilyn was an unknown.   Hefner bought the pics after Marilyn became a famous actress....Marilyn signed a standard model release with the original photographer (waiving forever her ownership and control over the pictures) and was paid then for her work.   Marilyn did not receive a dime from Hefner.   Ever.

Farkers love to look down on that guy, but I heard he was able to score all the hot ladies back when he was a key player on The Office. Not a sharp knee among them, no sir!

(Now he gives BJs to sailors in dive bars just for pocket change and leftover sandwiches, but fame is fleeting like that.)

Quite serious. Norma Jean became Marilyn Monroe with the help of a very skilled surgeon.

'"She told me, 'Fox is giving Taylor $1 million and I'm only getting $125,000 a movie,'" Schiller said.'

Uhhh, yeah....because Taylor was an actual actress and not just some sexpot.  This is like Ellie Kemper comparing her income to Meryl Streep's.

/kemper's cute but that's it
