19 Dec Marilyn Monroe’s First Nude Photos
Nude pictures of Marilyn Monroe taken in 1949 by photographer Tom Kelley at his Hollywood studio were recently uncovered. A 22-year-old Monroe sign them as “Mona Monroe.”
She didn’t want anyone to know the pictures were of her because “Nice girls did not pose in the nude,” but she needed the extra cash – she earn $50 for the photos.
“You must promise to never tell anyone about my posing for you in the nude,” she reportedly told Tom Kelley. “I want you to promise me that you will take the pictures so that I wouldn’t be recognisable in them.“
