Boone Turned Down The Chance To Romance Monroe
Beloved Christian crooner PAT BOONE turned down the chance to work with MARILYN MONROE on the big screen - because he felt his fans wouldn't approve of him romancing an older married woman.
The Love Letters In The Sand singer was offered a role opposite Monroe just as his movie career with 20th Century Fox was taking off - but he had to decline the opportunity.
He explains, "I said, 'I've got a lot of teenage fans, and they would be upset if I played a person who has an affair with an older woman. I can't do that.'"
