You've never seen her like this before!
A home video has surfaced of Marilyn Monroe smoking pot at a friend's house in New Jersey. The video is suspected to be from 1958 or 1959.
New-York based collector Keya Morgan has purchased the footage for $275K and is putting it up for sale on eBay this week.
The video shows a very relaxed Monroe spending time with her friends. She is passed the joint, takes a puff and then smells her armpit before laughing!
The unidentified filmmaker, who had been keeping the video in his attic all these years, confirmed that the substance in the cigarette is marijuana:
"I got [the pot]. It was mine. It was just passed around. It was not a party. It was just a get-together. You know, come over and hang out."
Who knew that Marilyn was a marijuana fan?
