Photograph of Marilyn Monroe.

Hollywood’s a place where they’ll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss, and fifty cents for your soul.

Extended Quotation:

In Hollywood a girl’s virtue is much less important than her hair-do. You’re judged by how you look, not by what you are. Hollywood’s a place where they’ll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss, and fifty cents for your soul. I know, because I turned down the first offer often enough and held out for the fifty cents.
