Marilyn Monroe takes over Vanity Fair (24 photos)

Marilyn Monroe is Vanity Fair's June 2012 cover girl. The iconic star is shown in never before seen outtakes from her last photo shoot. The magazine also talks about eventful quotes she said throughout her life.

On her attention-grabbing plans for Fox to pick up a poolside shoot in which she’d jump in the water with a bathing suit on—and come out without it: “Larry (Lawrence Schiller), if I do come out of the pool with nothing on, I want your guarantee that when your pictures appear on the covers of magazines Elizabeth Taylor is not anywhere in the same issue.”

On getting a $25,000 payday from Hugh Hefner for a single shot: "There isn’t anybody that looks like me without clothes on.”

On rejection: “I could tell you all about rejection. Sometimes I feel my whole life has been one big rejection.” “But look at you now,” Lawrence Schiller said. “Exactly,” she replied. “Look at me now.”

On confiding her deepest worry: “I’ve always wanted a baby. Having a child, that’s always been my biggest fear. I want a child and I fear a child. Whenever it came close, my body said no and I lost the baby.”

On her questions about her purpose: “It’s still about nudity. Is that all I’m good for? I’d like to show that I can get publicity without using my ass or getting fired from a picture.”
