We’ve seen this comparison before (from Lindsay Lohan), but LiLo thinks she and Marilyn Monroe are two peas in a pod.
Megan Fox may be giving up her fixation on the “negative character,” but La Lohan is still into Monroe. The starlet wrote the foreword for Susan Bernard's new book “Marilyn: Intimate Exposures,” reports Radar Online.
"People in their mind have created who I am and act as if there is no real person inside of me. Just like Marilyn,” Linds writes.
She continues with her woeful tale of celebrity: "Marilyn never wanted to be just a celebrity. Neither do I ... I had always thought that movie stars were in films that would last forever in your mind. But now the films don't. I don't want to be remembered as someone who just wanted to be photographed, who goes out at night, and gets in trouble."
There’s an easy fix for that, Lindsay!
She goes on: “I can understand the photographer Bernard of Hollywood’s [Bruno Bernard] statement, 'It took a superhuman effort to be Marilyn,’” Lohan expounds. “I identify."
Then she brings the late Heath Ledger into it. “Heath Ledger once said to me, 'It’s built you up to knock you down and that’s all it is,'" the 25 year-old recalls. “Marilyn said she had no foundation. But she said she was really working on it. I’ve been trying to do the same thing … I believe in myself and I’m a good actress.”
On Friday, Lindsay tweeted a picture of herself dressed up in Marilyn-esque attire for a photo shoot.
