I’m gonna say that I did amazing since I went from stuffing my face and not working out at all to randomly starting Insanity. And I did about the same compared to the people in the video. So I’m happy.
To understand Marilyn best, you have to see her around children. They love her; her whole approach to life has their kind of simplicity and directness.
Marilyn loved children. She went out of her way to befriend and play with children of people she knew. Newly married Norma Jeane, barely out of childhood herself, fed, bathed, and played with the nephews and nieces of first husband James Dougherty. Soon after landing her first film contract Marilyn confided to fellow actress Clarice Evans that she wanted to have four children, two her own and two adopted. Later she was indulgent with the children of many important people in her life: Fred Karger’s child, Joe DiMaggio’s son, Arthur Miller’s children, the offspring of the Strasbergs, and her psychoanalyst, Dr Ralph Greenson.
Long after the relationships had ended with her former husbands, Marilyn was still in close touch with the step-children she aquired through marriage. In 1962 she told a reporter from Redbook magazine just how important Joe DiMaggio Jr. and Jane and Robert Miller were to her: “I take a lot of pride in them. Because they’re from broken homes too, and I think I can understand them. I’ve always said to them that I didn’t want to be their mother or stepmother and such…I just wanted to be their friend… I can’t explain it. I think I love them more than I love anyone.”
That she suffered medical problems or fertility problems and was unable to have children of her own was a great source of sadness. In the last year of her life Marilyn was asked what she wanted, more than anything else. She replied, “The thing I want more than anything else? I want to have children. I used to feel for every child I had, I would adopt another.” Makeup man and confidant Allan Snyder remembered, “She loved children so much - my daughter, other people’s children - she went for them all. If she had one of her own, to care for, to grow up with, I’m sure it would’ve helped her immensely.
