Morton To Hold Monroe Auction
Actress SAMANTHA MORTON is to hold an auction in celebration of what would have been MARILYN MONROE's 80th birthday - because she feels a strong link with the screen legend. The MINORITY REPORT star is currently playing Monroe in new movie MR LONELY, and she relates to the SOME LIKE IT HOT beauty's sense of insecurity as they both suffered unstable childhoods. She says, "Marilyn, like me, was brought up in foster care, so I knew what it was like not to feel safe and secure." The proceeds from the Forever Marilyn auction (23OCT06) will be donated to Save The Children's Rewrite the Future campaign.
