“I was spanked all the time. My dad would, in social situations. When we were in restaurants, if I spilled a glass of water, he’d get me in a headlock and dig his knuckles into my head or smack me in the face. I never understood that, why a parent would be so embarrassed or so intimidated by what other people would think of you in a restaurant, just because your child spilled something on accident, to have to punish them for having an accident. That’s a weird psychological trick to play on a child because…I still put myself down and cuss myself out for knocking things over, I get really upset with myself because I’ve been conditioned to not spill things, don’t have accidents, don’t have human error. Everything’s supposed to be perfect at all times…Fuck him for that.” - Kurt Cobain
“I’ll never forget the day Marilyn and I were walking around New York City, just having a stroll on a nice day. She loved New York because no one bothered her there like they did in Hollywood, she could put on her plain-jane clothes and no one would notice her. She loved that. So as we we’re walking down Broadway, she turns to me and says ‘Do you want to see me become her?’ I didn’t know what she meant but I just said ‘Yes’- and then I saw it. I don’t know how to explain what she did because it was so very subtle, but she turned something on within herself that was almost like magic. And suddenly cars were slowing and people were turning their heads and stopping to stare. They were recognizing that this was Marilyn Monroe as if she pulled off a mask or something, even though a second ago nobody noticed her. I had never seen anything like it before.”
- Amy Greene, wife of Marilyn’s personal photographer Milton Greene
