“My Week with Marilyn” opens in theaters today. Here’s her famed acting teacher, Lee Strasberg’s, heartfelt eulogy. Also check out our recent interview with Michelle Williams.
Marilyn Monroe was a legend. In her own lifetime she created a myth of what a poor girl from a deprived background could attain. For the entire world she became a symbol of the eternal feminine. But I have no words to describe the myth and the legend. I did not know this Marilyn Monroe. We gathered here today knew only Marilyn — a warm human being, impulsive and shy, sensitive and in fear of rejection, yet ever avid for life and reaching out for fulfillment.
Newsweek August 20, 1962
