Marilyn Monroe Was Not Stupid. Period.

One of the only aspects of this woman that I’m still completely mystified by is how someone so self aware, and so willing to confront, analyze, and overcome the force of her own mind could allow herself to walk such a fragile line between life and death. I suppose it takes the utmost will power to seize absolute control as well as to lose absolute control. That’s scary. I didn’t know that those were possible at the same time. And now that I think about it, why wouldn’t I think they could occur simultaneously? That’s what theatre is, right?
Theatre, music, art is absolutely seizing and losing control at the same time.
That’s why she was brilliant.
