Clark Gable Thought Marilyn Monroe Smelled Too Much

Clark Gable, star of “Gone With The Wind”, never had an affair with Marilyn Monroe. It is because she smelled too much, according to a new biography.


The pair both starred in the 1961 film “The Misfits”, and were often rumored to have a begun a steamy affair during the shoot.

However, the author of new book Clark Gable: Tormented star, David Bret, revealed, “(Gable was) not in the least amorously interested in Marilyn. In as much as he had a fetish for cleanliness, she could not have been less fastidious regarding her personal hygiene. She suffered from what today would be described as a form of irritable bowel syndrome.”
