Marilyn Monroe and Albert Einstein

Beauty and Brains

Their Secret Love Affair

Marilyn Monroe and Albert Einstein

We have all met the guy who thinks he is as smart as Albert Einstein was and the woman who sees herself as a Marilyn Monroe type. Right folks, dream on. We are talking about two totally unique people here. Einstein was in possession of a powerful mind, full of fantasy, curiosity and most of all, humility. Monroe, was stunningly beautiful and extremely vulnerable. The perfect recipe for love? Maybe, rumors have floated around for decades that they were lovers.

Einstein and Monroe – a match made in the gossip columns

Einstein once said: “The gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge. Imagination is more important than knowledge.” Apparently Monroe became a fantasy to Einstein, just imagine Marilyn swirling around in Albert’s mind, bumping into all those math symbols in a fight for dominance.

The media legend starts with a dinner party. Einstein and Marilyn sat next to each other. After a few flutes of champagne, she cooed in his attentive ear: “I want to have your child. With my looks and your brains, it will be a perfect child!”

Einstein replied: “But what if it has my looks and your brains?”

But Marilyn captured Einstein’s imagination. They reputedly lived together on Fantasy Island for awhile. He joined the legion of lovers who ignored her fatal flaws and she ignored the fact that he was no matinee idol, but neither were Joe DeMaggio or Arthur Miller. Einstein even autographed his photo: “To Marilyn, I am forever grateful”.

Any affair they had was doomed to end. She belonged to Hollywood, but she was a wry observer of the illusion of stardom: “Hollywood is a place where they’ll pay you $1 million for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul . . . I often stood silently at parties for hours listening to my movie idols turn into dull and little people.”. Obviously Albert had an impact on her thinking.

    This story’s false, It was said by George Bernard Shaw to Sarah Bernhardt in an earlier period. Fucking Americans, always trying to steal the credit for everything! (like claiming Einstein as one of their own)

    I have read much about Einstein’s life but nothing that ever really put them together so this would be news to me Holte. Although, Einstein did have a love of the ladies and Marilyn was actually brighter than most gave her credit for being. Who knows? But Marilyn’s brain’s and his looks? yuck! What a waste.

      It is just one of those enduring legends Lazer, one I prefer to believe. They would have done each other a lot of good.

        Oh trust me Holte, I actually think he and her would have made quite a pair. Einstein have a love of the spot light just as Marilyn did and one of the things she was supposed to have said about the Kennedy boys is that she loved how smart they were. His brains and her beauty, what a pair.
