Angelina Jolie dismissed rumors to play Marilyn Monroe

Moreover, the actress said it’s the first time she hears this news and it is flattering to her. “It’s really funny because I have just heard about this for the first time today,” she said. “It’s news to me. I’m flattered I suppose.”

The actress also spoke about her new movie “Salt”, the plot, her character Evelyn Salt and the echoes related to her movie and the 10 people arrested for suspicion on spying for Russia. “It was all very, very strange how close it was,” Jolie said.”Somebody thought it was good marketing but hopefully it won’t affect our relationship with Russia.”

She added: “I did a lot of the stunts myself. I got a gash, a little scar right on the bridge of my nose but that was something very silly I did rolling into a table.”

Angelina Jolie could play Marilyn Monroe in a new movie

The movie called The Life And Opinions Of Maf The Dog, And Of His Friend Marilyn Monroe is an adaptation after the novel with the same name written by Andrew O’Hagan.

The announcement was made this Sunday at the Edinburgh Book Festival. Moreover, Monroe’s good friend Frank Sinatra would be performed by actor George Clooney.

According to the author of the book, the novel tells the story of Marilyn Monroe’s final two years before her death. The actress died in 1962 August when she was only 36 years old.

Paris Hilton “teases” with a new fragrance (PHOTOS)

As expected when you think about Paris Hilton, she created a big confusion at the launch event.

Paris Hilton is the heiress of the Hilton empire and nothing more – considering that her only merit is that she was born in the Hilton family. Regardless, she appeared on the red carpet, dressed and makeup like Marilyn Monroe. Journalists didn’t knew what name to use when calling her.

“Tease” is her tenth fragrance and its flavor should reflect the fact that Paris Hilton began to mature (in fact, she said it’s her role, to pose as a dumb blonde). Actually, we’re not buying the “pose” thing …

“I love Marilyn Monroe,” said Paris. “She’s always been one of my fashion icons. Doing my tenth fragrance I just thought, she’s a 10, and I have to do something to honor Marilyn.”

Her hair, the red lipstick, her sparkling jewels, fur coat and white dress that Paris tried to combine like a true “diva” remember the pin-up style.

As a true chameleon, at the event, Paris showed her prominent decolletage. We really don’t know how come sometimes she has big boobs, sometimes she doesn’t … She’s a true Hilton, right?

Marilyn Monroe’s last weekend, Frank Sinatra left her at the mercy of destiny

Marilyn Monroe’s death remains one of Hollywood’s biggest mysteries. They say that in that evening she was visited by her former lover Bobby Kennedy, that an ambulance took her alive from the house and brought her back dead. Many rumors circulated but after nearly 50 years, mystery hasn’t been solved yet.

Until now, the legendary American jazz musician, Buddy Greco, who once sat next to Frank Sinatra (him too a lover of Marilyn) and to Rat Pack, decided to talk about Marilyn’s last weekend.

The beautiful actress spent her last weekend on mafia estate, Cal-Neva, in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. Buddy Greco was there, along with other stars such as Sinatra, who invited Monroe, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Juliet Prowse (Sinatra’s fiancee) and the famous Mafia godfather Sam Giancana.

Monroe was then extremely depressed. She had just separated from Robert Kennedy after five months of their relationship. “She was fragile, very fragile – well, she’d gone.’ Many blamed the Kennedys.

‘Marilyn was distraught and heartbroken. She felt the Kennedys had handed her around like a piece of meat,” said Rupert Allan formerly one of her friends.

“When she arrived that Saturday, you’d never believe that she had a care in the world,’ recalls Buddy Greco. ‘I was sitting with Frank [Sinatra], Peter Lawford and a bunch of other people, outside Frank’s bungalow, when a limousine pulls up and this gorgeous woman in dark glasses steps out,” he says.

“She’s dressed all in green – everything green: coat, skirt and scarf. Before I realised who it was, I thought: “My God, what a beautiful woman. No taste in clothes, but what a beautiful woman!”

“I knew that she’d been to my concerts and shows. She was a regular at the Crescendo club in Hollywood where I often played.”

“It has been suggested that Sinatra invited Monroe to Cal-Neva Lodge to urge her to keep her mouth shut about her affairs with the Kennedy brothers”

“We’d said hello a few times, but were never properly introduced. When Frank introduced us, I said: “You won’t remember me, but I was the piano player when you auditioned for the Benny Goodman band in 1948.”

“She got emotional at that and hugged me. She had such warmth – and I was moved. Somebody took some wonderful shots of that moment, of us hugging.”

“The people in those pictures were among the great entertainers of our time – Marilyn, Frank, Dean Martin,” says Greco.

“It was an unrepeatable moment, a time that would never happen again. July 1962.”

But by the end of the first evening, a darker Monroe was beginning to emerge. Greco had finished his first performance in the hotel’s lounge and had joined Sinatra and the other guests at Sinatra’s regular table.

“It was a wonderful time, a magical weekend. It is so hard to describe now but it was maybe the best time of my life.”

“Then suddenly the room went silent and very still. It was surreal. As if somebody had turned the sound off. I looked at Frank. I could immediately tell he was furious. His eyes were like blue ice cubes.”

“He was looking at the doorway where Marilyn was stood, swaying ever so slightly.”

Given her history of chronic alcohol and drug abuse, it was an ominous sign. Indeed, Sinatra had fallen out with Monroe over her addictions before.

By the end of the evening, however, Buddy Greco says Marilyn turned into another person. “She was still in the same green outfit she’d worn all day,’ says Greco. ‘But the woman I’d met that afternoon – smart , funny, intelligent, fragile – had gone.

‘Now she looked drunk and, well, defiant. She was clearly angry and I think I heard her say: “Who the f*** are they all staring at?” , says Greco.

Sinatra got mad and put his bodyguard to go out on Marilyn, and he took her up. Frank Sinatra was always there for Monroe, but now he was already tired of her drunkenness and her drugs, says Greco.

Greco, worried about her condition, went out after her.

“I found her by the pool. There was nobody around. It was late and the pool was deserted.”

“Maybe it was the moon but she had a ghostly pallor. It still didn’t occur to me that she might be a woman not long for this world.”

“She was distressed, out of it, but that was all. Maybe her friends were used to seeing her like that but it worried me. Anyway, we talked.”

“I walked her back to her bungalow in the complex reserved for the guests of Frank and Giancana where we all stayed.”

“I thought that the next morning I could put her with Pat Lawford [the Kennedys’ sister], who was her companion, and make sure she got back to L.A. safely.”

“But the next day when I called, she had already left. That was the last time I saw her.” So does he think that Sinatra had finally lost patience with Monroe and by abandoning her had left her to her fate?

“That’s a possible scenario,” Greco answered thoughtfully. “After she had created that problem, he certainly wanted her out of there. He could be quite firm with her.”

They say that Sinatra called her to Cal Neva to advise her to keep her mouth shut about her relationship with the Kennedy brothers. However, after she was being banished from the bar by one of her closest friends, Marilyn condition worsened, and after five days she was found dead.

Vanessa Paradis in Marilyn Monroe’s shoes

Vanessa Paradis, French singer and actress, is a huge fan of Marilyn Monroe and was delighted when she received a pair of shoes signed by Salvatore Ferragamo that Marilyn Monroe worn only once.

“‘He spoils me. He actually bought me the Marilyn Monroe shoes. Monroe’s someone who touches me really deeply. I truly admire both actress and the singer that she was. I love ‘Lazy’ and so many of her songs. She had a velvety voice”, said Vanessa Paradis.

Although she loves the shoes given by her boyfriend, Paradis admits that she never wore them.

Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have a couple relationship over 12 years, but they’re not married and have two children together: Lily Rose and Jack.
