Lindsay Lohan Is Just Like Marilyn Monroe, According To Lindsay Lohan

Megan Fox says she's outgrown her Marilyn Monroe obsession, but the same cannot be said for Lindsay Lohan. In the forward to the new book Marilyn: Intimate Exposures by Susan Bernard, Lindsay explains how very similar they are, saying, "Marilyn never wanted to be just a celebrity. Neither do I." Lindsay writes:

"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 [12] was a necessary quality for a woman ... I can understand the photographer Bernard of Hollywood's [Bruno Bernard] statement, 'it took a superhuman effort to be Marilyn.' I identify ... People in their mind have created who I am and act as if there is no real person inside of me. Just like Marilyn … 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 ... Heath Ledger once said to me, 'It's built you up to knock you down and that's all it is ... Marilyn said she had no foundation. But she said she was really working on it. I've been trying to do the same thing … I believe in myself and I'm a good actress."
