They’ve all been stolen and I wanted one for my grandchildren. But I can’t keep them. I don’t know who takes them if I get a copy and I pack it away. It’ll be gone. By the time it was known I’d already done the Asphalt Jungle. I was hired at Fox. I remember they called on the set, the publicity department and said, something to the affect of “did you pose for a calendar?” and I said “yes, anything wrong?”. There was great anxiety in their voices and they said “don’t say you did. Say you didn’t”. So I said “But I did. I signed the release and I did and I feel like I should say it.” So, I did say that I did.  And they were very unhappy about it. And then the cameraman who was working on the film that time, he got a hold of one and asked me if I’d sign it. And so I said yes I would, I signed it. I said “To…” you know, to him, and then his name and I said “this isn’t my best angle.” And of course they got madder, the studio… 
…I always supported myself, I was never what you’d call, I know, how would you say it…No one else ever supported me in my life, my older life. I had no family and I had no place to go to have a roof over my head.   
- Marilyn Monroe about her nude photographs and her reasons to Georges Belmonts, 1960.
