Marilyn Monroe, 85-years-old today, and Marlon Brando had a decade-long affair that was mostly secret to the public until more recently.
Brando wrote in his autobiography Songs My Mother Taught Me that he met Monroe at a party for The Actors’ Studio in the 1950s while she was playing piano, unnoticed by anybody else there.
”We had an affair and saw each other intermittently for years,” wrote Brando. “Once she called and invited me to come over for dinner. I already had plans but promised to call the following week. She said fine. Two or three days later, she was dead. I’m pretty good with people’s moods, and with Marilyn I didn’t sense any depression or clue of impending self-destruction during her call.”
The actor claimed he always thought Monroe was murdered and did not commit suicide – likely for information pertaining to her affairs with President John F. Kennedy and Robert Kennedy and their connections to Mafia, the CIA and the FBI.
They always remained friends.
