Marilyn Monroe and her acting coach Natasha Lytess, who was widely known to be a lesbian. Many believe they were girlfriends during their five year professional relationship in the early part of Monroe’s career. Acting coach Charles Nelson Reilly said of Monroe and Lytess, “One of the bigger Hollywood mysteries was why Marilyn and Natasha split up. Almost inseparable one day, then… phfft! It couldn’t have been Fox because they’d already tried breaking them up, and Marilyn had stood firm.”
