Lindsay Lohan Writes An Essay On Herself Marilyn Monroe!

| Filed under: Lindsay Lohan


Lindsay Lohan never ceases to amaze us.

The hard pAArtying former actress recently wrote an essay for the just-released coffee table book on Marilyn Monroe, Marilyn: Intimate Exposures, and, as to be expected, she mainly uses the icon as a nearly transparent veil to once again justify her behavior and blame everyone else for her problems!

She writes:

I was twelve and watching the film “Niagara” over and over again when I was shooting The Parent Trap. I didn’t refer to it as film noir then. I just thought it was dark and full of emotion. Marilyn was the beautiful bad girl in that tight, rose-colored dress. The character she played was strong and taking control, which I unconsciously knew at that young age was a necessary quality for a woman. I had seen what my mother, whom I love, had gone through with my father. She, I and my brother Michael, my sister Aliana, and my youngest brother Dakota were in a constant state of uncertainty. I would have to put myself between him and my siblings.

I can understand the photographer Bernard of Hollywood’s statement, “it took a superhuman effort to be Marilyn.” I identify. Without any real family to come home to and no education, Marilyn managed to have her dream. The dream of a little girl looking out of an orphanage window at the RKO sign, and promising herself, “There must be thousands of girls sitting alone like me, dreaming of becoming a movie star. But I’m not going to worry about them. I’m dreaming the hardest.”

People in their mind have created who I am and act as if there is no real person inside of me. Just like Marilyn, who created the blond sex goddess on camera…. Marilyn never wanted to be a celebrity. Neither do I. I started working in commercials, when I was three. I always wanted to be in great films. 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. Look, I never had a normal high school life. I was home schooled for two years, never had a high school prom or went to college. I was just sort of acting out that period of time I never had, and I made some bad choices. So all the tabloids, just like Marilyn, keep harping on my mistakes. Heath Ledger once said to me, “It’s build you up to knock you down and that’s all it is. And you just have to see if you can stand through it.”

Marilyn said she had no foundation. But she said she was really working on it. I’ve been trying to do the same thing. But sometimes a relationship doesn’t work out like you’d hoped. The tabloids don’t give you a chance. They don’t want to know who you are inside. If everything’s OK with you, who wants to hear about it? I believe in myself and I’m a good actress.

It took time for Marilyn to be taken seriously as an actress. She risked everything and broke her contract with FOX Studios, demanded more money, approval of directors, better scripts, more respect ,and formed Marilyn Monroe Productions. That was really empowering for a woman in the ‘50s. Marilyn was not a victim. She took control. And we remember her, 50 years later, for her “great films.”

Is she serious?

That's just embarrassing.

Instead of partying in France and Milan and writing essays on why everyone should be nice to her, she should be doing her community service!

Just saying!

    hey asshole where is all that peace and love that you and your gaga push down our throughts ? just leave her the fuck alone .

  2. 2

    Wow … she's really out of touch with the reality of who she is and how she's viewed. For her to see herself as both a victim & an empowered woman who likens herself to Marilyn Monroe is just embarrassing & sad. The reality is that she's an uneducated drug & alcohol addict who's had more run-ins with the law than most people experience in a lifetime and who's desperate to cling to the fame of her former childhood glory days of acting. She's not viewed as an actress anymore - her behavior and "essays" such as this show us who she clearly is: a juvenile-minded & weak person who feels a sense of entitlement and that she's above the rules that the rest of us have to follow. Good luck finding your path back to normalcy Lindsay … it's going to be a bumpy ride.

    I know they printed that because they knew people would talk. But the book is about MARILYN MONROE. And yet, that diatribe is about that pathetic little asswipe. And I love how they put the words great films in quotes. The whole thing was SO self serving and ignorant and the author and publisher should be ashamed for that.

  4. 4

    She's an entitled brat plays a victim. wake the fuck up.

  5. 5

    Good lord she's delusional….she's nothing like Marilyn Monroe. How can she compare herself to her?? She was only a friggen disney star! Her times are up. She's no longer an actress - at least a respected actress. What a joke. She doesn't want to be a celebrity?? LOL Give me a break.

  6. 6

    How fitting to idolize another doped up dumb hollywood bleached blonde Marilyn Monroe.
    Really? Is that who you look up to Lindsay? How about a smart woman who overcame the odds and accomplished something worthwhile.

    Re: Meggie246524 – well said. very, very well said.

  8. yeez says – reply to this


    It's like making fun of someone's creative writing essay in high school…it's called bullying.

  9. 9

    Sure people are saying nice things about Marilyn Monroe just because she is dead, I am sure that drugs had something to do with her death and that's why Lindsay thinks that they are similar. Marilyn was a pretty blond but not that talented she got in to good movies because she slept with every producer, people get real she wasn't that much better then Lohan.

  10. 10

    Poor girl really needs to go back to school. Forget the topic of her "essay", she needs to learn how to write properly. Her writing is indiciative of her poor education and lack of substance.

  11. 11

    Did she add something to her cheeks (besides dicks)?

  12. 12

    Re: Meggie246524 – You know what bitch……..you and Perez are one in the same Meeeeeeg…….Im gonna take this opportunity to tell you to go fuck yourself with your happy go lucky gaga lucky fucking way and tell your MOTHER TO CLOSE HER MOUTH BECAUSE I'M TIREd OF SHITTING IN IT. Pray on that bitch

  13. 13

    I would bet a million bucks that if Marilyn was alive today that Mario would have stalked her without compassion and when she died delete all the posts and cry one more angel in heaven So Sad…

  14. 14

    I don't understand why an essay about LL all about herself would be included in a book on Marilyn Monroe. That would be enough for me not to buy it. Why would anyone want to include that? Confusing also how she describes MM as taking control but herself as being a victim "“It’s build you up to knock you down and that’s all it is. And you just have to see if you can stand through it.”…….unfortunately LL falls down without any help. It was a confusing juvenile attempt at writing.

    So about 4 days. Some one dies and FatBot get on the Anti Bully band wagon then after about 4 days right back at the bullying.

  18. 18

    If this is a tribute book to Marilyn Monroe, why is Lindsay Lohan using the "I" word at every opportunity? She is obviously too young to have met MM, but she should have written a nice piece saying how MM was an influence on her or something, or else said nothing.

  19. 19

    Marilyn Monroe was not a stupid woman. She had an extensive library and could always be found reading and debating with intellectuals, poets and writers. She hated being seen as stupid and studied extensively because of it. It's sad that the only thing people know about her is that she was mentally ill and died due to drugs. Yes, there was mental illness in her family and yes there was drug abuse. But she was far from stupid and to sell the woman out because of an image is sad. I'm sure that's what Lindsay's trying to say here, though she should've realized the book wasn't about HER.

    lindsay, stop comparing yourself to an amazing icon and grow up. take responsibilities for your actions (for once) and get help.

    Re: Pretty Boys Are Forever – Don't ever comment on what I have to say mono sin rabo.

  25. 25

    I don't think the essay is terrible, but I for ONCE will agree with Perez.. She needs to get on that community service or she will be right back in court….. its just a constant circle with her. I have never seen somebody get away with as much as she has. If she lived in my city, they would have locked her up and thrown away the key a long time ago. Ridiculous.

  26. 26

    What a self indulged piece of crap

    Re: GayRay – In response to what that person wrote to meggie246524,gee, it sounds like you have some serious issues honey.

    Whoever published this book did a huge disservice to Marilyn Monroe by letting Lohan have anything to do with it. MM had very low self-esteem and never felt she was good enough. Lohan is a classic narcissist - case in point, she thinks she is worthy of comparison to Marilyn. They couldn't be less alike. I probably have a dozen books on MM but this is one I won't be buying.

  31. 31

    It's great that Lindsey can look to Marilyn as an anchor in her sea, yet she needs to understand that she will never be able to justify her life and actions through Marilyn's life. It's imperative that Lindsey drops the delusion that they have lived parallel lives. Always take the road less traveled cause that can make all the difference.

  32. 32

    I don't agree with Lindsay Lohan's actions in her personal life or to what we know of her personal life, but I do understand how she feels. Everything we're all saying on this opportunistic comment box is exactly what she was trying to express in that essa. We never leave her alone because she has this stigma from bad media press, and that is what we hold on to; therefore, because of this, she is not able to take control of her personal and work life. Everything we say, print, or talk about someone will have an affect, especially if its negative and for a celebrity, in their process to 'try' and live as normal civilians rather than 'celebrities.'

  33. 33

    Before anyone talks shit about Lindsay, you should at least have all the facts. No one knows if this is true or fabricated by Perez. Lindsay has been out of the tabloids for more than a month if anyone has noticed. Maybe she really is changing now, but Perez is making it his life duty to bring her down and take jabs at her whenever he has the chance. I hope you read this, Mario. It is because of you that countless celebrities are no longer with us today. Sure Lindsay has made some bad decisions, just like everyone else. But you are not really making things easier for her by posting false and/or irrelevant posts about Lindsay. As long as you're breathing, you can start all over again. Isn't this what your book is about? Acceptance? Perez will never talk shit about Lady Gaga, Rihanna, or whoever is on top of the charts today, have you noticed?

  34. 34

    Re: MikelJoshua – I agree…

  35. 35

    I think she just needs to fall off the face of the Earth. Lay low, and stay low. I don't care what she's doing, just STOP POSTING ABOUT HER and maybe, just maybe she will go away.

  36. 36

    Re: GayRay – you have got to be an alias of lindsey herself.

  37. 37

    Its sad to see such a talented beautiful girl struggling. I really hope she pull through.

  38. 38

    I can't believe I am agreeing with Perez on something, but he does have a point. It's so hard to sympathize for Lindsay because you feel as though she doesn't want to be held accountable for anything. We all know about her subtance abuse issues and her erratic behavior, but at what point is she going to put on her big girl panties and realize that only she can change her life and the tabloids only have so much power.
    The fact is, Lindsay screwed up majorly. She screwed up so bad that directors seems to no longer want to work with her and therefore it's hard for her to get work. Is she doing anything to change that? Has she changed her environment any? However, she seems to feel she is owed yet another chance, but has done nothing to earn it. She doesn't even seem to be completing her community service and yet she wants everyone to have faith in her. Unbelievable!

  39. 39

    Yeah, like she can write.

  40. 40

    Re: omrash – I totally agree! He's just a bully! He's fighting for something he helps to continue and that's bullying! Yes, she has messed up countless times but who's life does that effect? No one but her owns. People need to leave her be. Let her be delusional and compare herself. MM might help her grow or the things she read about MM. Perez want people to accept gays, gaga, and whatever else he believes in but he needs to learn to accept people !

  41. 41

    I get your feelings Perez but maybe instead of being mean (yes, she needs to get to her community service done) maybe listen a little. She had a very different upbringing than most people. How do you think YOU would have grown up with her parents as your parents? You can't think of it from your mindset. You have to think from hers. I see this more of her breaking it down for herself to understand. All those things shape you and your thoughts and actions. You can't expect her to wake up one day and be perfect. What's perfect anyways? An idea. In time she'll figure out her own inner strength. Girl is hurting don't add to that. Something even I have to keep reminding myself. She is growing but yes please Lindsay do your community service. Stop the cycle.

  42. 42

    Re: GayRay – LOL really? that's the best you can do? I'm pretty and i know it, so nice attempt at trying to put me down. Sorry if you think that way "gayray" but I have a wonderful boyfriend who's in love with me and thinks i'm beautiful, so only his opinion matters :]

  43. 43

    she's right.

  44. 44

    Re: yeez – shut the hell up. theres bullying and theres people like you (i know you will just jump on perez for anyting) who want all bad things to go away and lets all live in happy rainbow land. besides she is in the entertainment business/ the public eye critics, trash talk along with praise are all part of the game if she can't handle it do something else

  45. 45

    Re: GayRay – you are an idiot what are you 10 years old. grow up or at least sound a bit more intelligent

  46. 46

    Re: TiffanyParker – how is that struggling, she acts in movies while talent is needed to be good is not like shes doing hard labor, she is still wealthy, parties with stars and travels to fancy locations, is famous just because she used to be, screwed her own career up with drugs. lies lies lies lieslies lies, steals steals steals steals, looks down on people, ……where is the struggle….

  47. 47

    What the fuck is it with people and Marilyn Monroe? Why are these twits looking up to this drug-addicted hick? Is it because she's beautiful, because that's all there is to her…does no one remember she fucked the president while he was married and DIED FROM AN OVERDOSE!?! HELLOOOO WAKE THE FUCK UP! RESPECT AND ADMIRE SOMEONE WORTHY OF RESPECT AND ADMIRATION!

  48. 48

    Lindsey, Lindsey, Lindsey….We do not remember Marilyn Monroe for her talent. We remember her for having an affair with a married man, being married 3 times, being drunk, high or otherwise drugged up and for winding up dead, naked, alone.

    When she died, she was not respected by studios and only popular as a party animal. You better take a look at her life….because you're following the same path. If you don't watch it, you'll end up dead, at an early age and really???? No one will care. You are NOT marilyn monroe. You are a sorry excuse for a diva who has NOT left any type of mark on hollywood that will be remembered 50 years after you've died.

  49. 49

    Did this essay go into the coffee-table book, because she has the writing skills of a freshman in high school.

  50. 50

    Oh…another thing….Even Hef doesn't want you….so perhaps you might want to try a new persona…because the one you have right now—Yeah, how's that working for you.

  51. 51

    Re: GayRay – Lindsey, Lindsey….Is that you, sweetie?? Poor thing….it's going to be ok….these two gentlemen are just going to help you slip into your jacket….It's ok Lindsey. We're here to help you.

  52. 52

    i have adored marilyn for years and studied marilyn i abhor ' stinky tights' deluding her self to think her and marilyn had anything at all in common..i have more in common with marilyn than her

    did marilyn hunt down her exs and shriek to all and hell to hear no marilyn was way too famous
    she was a true star she was vunerable but she didnt sit around whining about it .

    yes marilyn had a lot of sex maybe lindsays trying to ' TELL us something..

    marilyn existed in a world where men ruled ..and died in that world.

  53. 53

    did she get cheek implants recently???

  54. Bates says – reply to this


    What Lindsay wrote is beautiful. Marilyn was driven to her death by a society that would not tolerate anyone not conforming, not unlike what Lindsay's dealing with almost a half century later. My money is on Lindsay.

  55. 55

    If GagMe wrote that you would be saying how "amazeballs" it was and you woulld want an autographed copy! You are such a hypocrite!

  56. jham says – reply to this


    Just stop partying and start working - how about that? Forget about the tabloids and work hard and SHOW people you're serious. It won't happen immediately, but hard work will bring results. Stop getting wasted and acting a fool!

  57. 57

    Re: PuppaLuppa[/re]
    There are a lot of reasons to admire Marilyn Monroe. And technically it would have to have been that the President, one of the greatest men who every lived, …….her.

  58. 58

    Lindsay is incredibly delusional. To compare herself to an icon, make every excuse possible to justify her self-destructive ways… Its pathetic to me that this is what a celebrity is in our time. She just needs to go away and get some serious psychiatric help before she ends up being the next example of a wasted life.

  59. 59

    Heath Ledger said the only smart thing in that whole essay.

  60. 60

    oh god, just shut the fuck up already bitch. how is this an essay, it's just tons of delusions mashed up into paragraphs. lindsay, now i get why you didn't go to college, you have the writing skills of a retarded chimpanze

  61. 61

    I swear this was so badly written at first I thought maybe Lindsay Lohan dashed it off as a blog entry? She is, after all, obsessed with both herself, Marilyn Monroe, and comparing herself to Marilyn Monroe.

    Then I thought maybe the original article was from The Onion? Nope to both…yikes.

  62. 62

    God forgive me I hate this troll so much.. I can't help it.. she is overrated as fuck.. she isn't even a celebrity or actress anymore..yet she still in tabloids and at parties and gets away with anything and everything and gets pity from people when she has such a stuck-up sense of entitlement.. and can't shut the flying fuck up about Marilyn Monroe when she is NOTHING like her at all!! So what you both have done drugs.. that's about it.. fucking stupid.. and she just constantly pity's herself.. if Marilyn was alive she would not want to be seen with this wannabe.. how embarrassing to be compared to this loser..

  63. 63

    fuck her, what a piece of shit. how dare she compare herself to her?? because her "daddy was mean"?? bitch please. her movies were shit, shes always in trouble and MM was different and extremely disturbed as she got older. nobody is like her and to stoop to this level?? shes pathetic and hasnt had a hit since mean girls. shes so ugly and i cant stand the fact that she thinks shes like her. guuhhrrr!!! i hate her and i hope shes ashamed of herself and this false pride, disgusting, ego, unlikely, untrue, "essay" of shit.

  64. 64

    OMG Lindsay Lohan and family have milked this hollywood thing DRY. DRY. It's time to go back to L I and get a real job. All of em.

    Re: Emeri_21 – Wow!She is a "piece of shit"? And you "hate" her? Whatever happened to LOVE THY NEIGHBOR, you FALSE CHRISTIAN? Such blasphemy and hatred from a supposed 'Christian'. Give me a non-hateful gay hurting and hating no one, rather than a FALSE Christian spewing swear words, blasphemy and HATING people, any day. It proves my belief that there are no true real Christians, only christians of convenience when it suits them, but ignores the 10 commandments. 'she's so ugly'. 'fuck her'. 'piece of shit', '*hate* her'….wow, you are a truly evil, satanic sick person. You are VERY sick. You are as much a 'Christian' as Osama Bin Laden was. Go to church and ask to study the Bible with someone because you are influenced by and worship SATAN, not any Christian God. Shame on you, you repulsive dispicable person! You badly need God.
