Albert Einstein 'experimented' with Marilyn Monroe!
Around 1947, Albert Einstein was not only working on his unified field theory, he was also 'working on' Marilyn Monroe! Yes, even though the world's greatest scientist was 47 years older than the 21-year-old budding actress and model, Einstein was one of Marilyn's ardent suitors. Is this relationship between the 20th century's best known male and female icons documented? Yes.
At the Einstein Conference at the Aspen Institute (Colorado) in 2004, one of the presenters stood in front of a big screen projection of Marilyn and addressed a large auditorium that was full of attendees (including myself), "Albert Einstein & Marilyn Monroe had a relationship! It's documented in Shelley Winters' autobiography. Shelley & Marilyn were roommates when they were both young actresses in Hollywood in the late 40s. They talked about the famous men - actors and non-actors - that they would like to sleep with and braged about their accomplishments! There are a couple of letters between Einstein & Marilyn that still exist and are kept with his papers at the Hebrew University in Israel. Marilyn said, 'He was the most energetic man I've ever been with!'"
I went on a Shelley Winters biography page http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001859/bio and found out that she wrote two autobiographies: Shelley, Also Known as Shirley (1981) and Shelley II: The Middle of My Century (1989) that "detailed her notorious dalliances with such famous movie stars as..." I also got this info... When Shelley and Marilyn Monroe were roommates in the late 1940s in Hollywood, Shelley said that one day she had to step out and asked Marilyn to "wash the lettuce" for a salad they were to share for dinner. When she got back to the apartment, Marilyn (apparently new to the art of cooking) had the leaves of lettuce in a small tub of soapy water and was scrubbing them clean.
It should be noted that both Monroe and Einstein were single at the time of their affair. Marilyn had divorced her first husband in September 1946 and Albert's second wife Elsa had died in December 1936.
