Some may like it not: new Marilyn Monroe statue
Marilyn Monroe’s rear is getting some leers in Connecticut. A 26-foot statue of the actress has been placed in a Stamford park across the street from a the First Congregational Church of Stamford, which is getting a full view of her behind, reports the Associated Press. The statue was put up Monday as part of a citywide art display. It depicts the famous scene from 1955’s “The Seven Year Itch” where Monroe holds down her white dress as air blows up from a subway grate. “I think some people will be offended,” said said church member Maureen Matthews, who is not bothered by the statue. “It is silly. There are bigger issues to worry about. But I’ll be interested to see how people talk about it on Sunday.”
