British actor Peter Lawford refused to sleep with Hollywood sex symbol Marilyn Monroe, because he was repulsed by her personal hygiene.

Lawford, who later married PATRICIA KENNEDY, grew close to the Some Like It Hot beauty through his friendship with FRANK SINATRA - but he turned down the chance to get intimate, according to his son Christopher Kennedy Lawford.

The actor did, however, get very intimate with PEYTON PLACE star Lana Turner, who he regarded as the best lover he had.
