First of all, does this mean Marilyn Monroe was not a 100% natural beauty?! New intel shows that she’s (almost) just like the rest of us when it comes to enhancing looks with the help of a doctor. This kind of changes my whole outlook on life.
A Southern California plastic surgeon has a set of six x-rays and a file of doctor’s notes that show the star’s medical history. So here’s what we know: she had a chin implant, which was made out of bovine cartilage because silicone implants didn’t exist back then. Ok, ew. Bovine cartilage. Also, she had a small procedure done on the tip of her nose.
So the downside of the story is that Marilyn’s chin and nose were all a lie. The bright side is that, hey, even Marilyn Monroe had plastic surgery, so you shouldn’t even an inkling of shame in getting a silly little injection like Botox! Another upside to this is that the x-rays are being auctioned off in Beverly Hills to benefit the nonprofit foundation Rebuilding America’s Warriors, which helps U.S. veterans receive free reconstructive surgery on injuries that are not covered by government benefits. Marilyn would have totally approved.
