    Default 'Stupid' made Marilyn Monroe famous says Tony Curtis

    SOME LIKE IT HOT star TONY CURTIS credits ex-lover MARILYN MONROE's transparent shirts and "stupid woman" act for her iconic status - because she was nothing special when they dated.

    The 80-year-old movie veteran romanced Monroe for six months in the late 1940s when the actress was at the beginning of her career, but insists she was just like the other girls he loved and there was nothing to suggest she was going to be special.

    He recalls, "I never felt her figure was so proper; I thought it was a little lumpy in places. She was a red-head back then and, at the time, she seemed no different from all the other young women with nice knockers trying to get into movies.

    "But then she developed that stupid woman... more like a naive, little-girl quality.

    "In movies, she started to talk slowly, as if she was thinking of the words she was going to say, and that became her magic. That and the see-through blouse fit together perfectly."

    I guess she dumped him back then, because years later when they shot "Some Like It Hot" he said kissing her was like kissing Hitler. I guess his ego got bruised.

    She was far from perfect and claims about her being quite the manipulator have been uttered by many who knew her first hand. But it's always kinda cheap to say such things a) looooooong after the fact and b) long after the person is around to defend themselves.

    ...years later when they shot "Some Like It Hot" he said
    kissing her was like kissing Hitler.
    Her response? Curtis was just pissed because he "looks better in
    a dress than I do."

    Can this man shut up about Marilyn? She's dead, can't fight back and quite frankly, will be remembered for far longer than this irrelevant little footnote. And duh...it's no secret she played the dumb card...very intelligently.

    I think he is lying about a date with her. Just a jealous old queen.

    He's just trying to remind everybody he once dated her.

    I would have expected a man of his age to respect and not speak ill of the dead.

    I had never heard that they dated but I do remember reading he had said after filming "Some Like it Hot", "Kissing Marilyn was like kissing Hitler". He sounded jealous then and still. Let her rest!

    Besides the "lumpy" comment, it doesn't sound like he is putting Marilyn down to me. The first paragraph makes it sound like a put down, but that's the reporters view of what Tony said.

    Tony's just jealous because Marilyn died young and beautiful and became an icon. Never grew old and became a washed up, paunchy has-been like Tony did.
