So many Hollywood stars have left this earth way too early.

But none of the men and women in this gallery even made it past 40!

At least now there's finally a reason to wedge Kim Kardashian & Marilyn Monroe into the same sentence!!

According to a dude named William Castleberry, there's an old school sex tape floating around featuring a fierce three-way between Marilyn, President John F. Kennedy, and his beloved brother Robert F. Kennedy!

William, a former bodyguard and pro memorabilia collector, says his 8mm copy is the only one in existence! Of course, he's never let anyone else lay eyes on it, and he expects everyone to take him at his word!

Castleberry sounds like a trustworthy surname, but The Seven Year Itch seductress getting double-stuffed like an Oreo cookie isn't a rumor we take lightly!!!
