Kanye West recently slammed Vanity Fair, saying that his fiancé Kim Kardashian was more deserving to channel Marilyn Monroe for their 100th issue than swimsuit model Kate Upton. And Kanye may be right.
Kim and Marilyn have so much in common: They both married 3 times, did Playboy (Kim’s 2007 cover mimicked Marilyn’s 1953 cover, Playboy’s first). Kim even had a Marilyn Monroe moment during her pregnancy when her dress blew up in the wind, a la Marilyn in The Seven Year Itch.
THE GOSSIP TABLE spoke with Winsome Sinclair, a casting director who worked on Precious and 2 Fast 2 Furious, who says that Kim could play the iconic blonde in a movie, if she takes on a few important steps.
“She can work with her physical attributes of her curves to play the role… I never had the opportunity to audition her, but I did see her in the piece she did with Tyler Perry (Temptation), and she did do a formidable job. She does have a lot of life experience to draw on that would be extremely helpful in portraying the role. There is some natural talent there. If Kim were to study, I definitely think she would be a force to reckon with in the acting community.”
This isn’t the first time Kim has been compared to Marilyn. Just a month ago, former French Vogue editor, who now has her own title, CR Fashion Book, said she put Kim on its cover because “She’s controversial, but so was Marilyn Monroe and I always like controversial people.”
