Actress Blake Lively – who recreated the ‘Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend’ setpiece in TV’s Gossip Girl recently – has explained how Marilyn’s confident sexuality inspires her, reports ContactMusic.
”I have insecurities like any girl. I used to be really shy and unconfident. I hated being tall. Walking the red carpet is scary, so I pretend to be Marilyn Monroe – someone who owned their sexuality and projected this incredible aura of self-confidence.”
