Did you know? The rumor that has been circulating for many years; that Marilyn Monroe and Albert Einstein ‘hooked up’ at sometime during their illustrious careers, can finally be debunked. It is highly unlikely that the sexy starlet and German-born theoretical physicist even met.
Here is how the rumor most likely got started. It seems that Marilyn and actress Shelly Winters shared an apartment from 1947 to 1951. According to an excerpt from Shelly Winter’s 1980 book: “One day Marilyn and I had the idea to create a wish list of the famous men that Marilyn would sleep with if given the opportunity. Marilyn wrote Albert Einstein’s name on the list. According to Shelly, she advised Marilyn: “There is no way you can sleep with Albert Einstein. He is the most famous scientist of the century and he is an old man.” Marilyn then replied, “That has nothing to do with it. I hear he is very healthy.”
This evidence, combined with the fact that when Einstein died in 1955 at the age of 76 Marilyn was only 29 years old, should allow us to put the Marilyn Monroe and Albert Einstein rumor to bed, as they say.
