It is well known that despite the fact that Marilyn Monroe wanted to have a child, she did not have a child. Was it really so? Anthony Summers’ book “The Goddess.

A few years ago, medical records were released, which confirmed that Marilyn Monroe underwent two plastic surgeries during her career. It turned out that the actress had chin implants and a corrected tip of her nose.

Despite the fact that she was one of the most popular actresses in the world, she did not receive an Oscar nomination.

Among the actress’s belongings were found inserts that she put into her bra, as her natural breasts had lost their firmness.
