(Newser) – Marilyn Monroe is doing a Chanel ad from beyond the grave, AFP reports. Last year, the fashion and fragrance company discovered a 1960 interview Monroe gave to Marie Claire, in which Monroe addresses her iconic quote about wearing Chanel No. 5 perfume to bed. (In 1952, she famously said she wore just "five drops of Chanel No. 5" to bed.) The 1960 quote:

  • "You know, they ask you questions. Well just an example, 'What do you wear to bed? Do you wear a pajama top? The bottoms of the pajamas? Or a nightgown?' So I said Chanel No. 5! Because it's the truth. And yet I don't want to say 'nude'. But it's the truth."

Marilyn was a beautiful woman in her day. But please give the lady respect, after all she has been dead 50+ years!
