Marilyn Monroe did not ever in her lifetime have 6 toes on either foot. She was born June 1, 1926 a healthy baby with ten fingers and ten toes. She died August 5, 1962 with these same 10 fingers and 10 toes. Attached is a series of pictures that documents the life of her feet from child to adult and even in death that will prove she never had an extra toe. First, the background as to how this rumor came about.

Photographer Joseph Jasgur photographed young Norma Jeane before she became Marilyn Monroe at the age of 20 in the year 1946. On March 18, 1946, Joe Jasgur took Norma Jeane to Zuma Beach, California for a photo shoot. One photograph from this shoot came out looking like Norma Jeane had a sixth toe on her left foot due to a clump of sand sticking to her foot. (Photo #1) On March 23, 1946 Joe again took Norma Jeane to Zuma Beach for more photos. These photos taken only 5 days later clearly show Norma Jeane with only 5 toes on her left foot.

When Joseph Jasgur decided to publish these photos in a book entitled “The Birth of Marilyn: The Lost Photographs of Norma Jeane By Joseph Jasgur” he stated this lie: Norma Jeane had six toes and I can prove it with this picture on pages 72 and 73. The only problem with this is that there is an abundance of pictures of Marilyn Monroe with only five toes per foot, one of which is on page 86 of Joseph Jasgur’s same book, the photo taken only 5 days after the “six toe” picture.

That extra toe didn’t just fall off in five days! Nor did it grow especially for Joe to photograph on March 18, 1946. It was never there. Unfortunately, the six toe rumor has spread and been taken as truth by so many. Even Ripley’s Believe It Or Not has reported that Marilyn Monroe had six toes. It is really sad that because one man told a lie to make some money, poor Marilyn, gone from us now for 40 years (God rest her beautiful soul) is now made out to be a six toed freak by so many people.

Instead of newspapers and such printing good things about her to the many readers who know little of her, the print about Marilyn involves deformities etc. The worst part is that it’s not true or accurate. Believe it or not, there are surprising and interesting things about Marilyn Monroe that are good things, and they could even be used in a “Did You Know?” section. (or on a web site – Editor’s note)

  1. Who else is here because Nigel-Murray in the show Bones spouted the random fact about Marilyn Monroe having six toes? Phalanges!

    1. Me!!!! Lmao I had to know if it was true lol. But I knew it wasn’t because my sister LOVES Marilyn Monroe…she has pictures and posters and all kinds of other stuff of Marilyn Monroe.

  2. No one knows if she has six toes and who cares if she does let her r.i.p and leave her alone it has not been fully proven.

  3. She had 10 toes total why you being dumb can you not count… Please stop talking about her, if you think she had 6 toes on 1 foot than count them please she had 10 toes total and 10 fingers total please stop questioning this persons work..

  4. Why is everyone being so rude and upset? And that one person should not embarrass herself by posting in “junk” English. ق٦ئفحكزل Can you read that?

  5. I’m guessing Mahleah never passed the first grade. She has very poor grammar, and that’s saying something with spell check on every phone and computer these days.

  6. How were do u see proof u little hoe even if she did who cares why are u caring about her leave her alone idk her but still she could be a very nice person but people gotta be so rude to her like yo ugly ass there is a picture of her and in that picture she has 5 toes on each foot why would they be liein and everybody gots something wrong with them your face is fucked up so you cant talk marilyn monroe prolly looks better than you do so go some where with all that. frfr if she did what chu gone do about it..

    1. I’m sorry, what? There is not one single part of this statement that makes a lick of sense. Another wonderful example of a person who has no disregard for themselves, personally or professionally. You should truly attempt to adjust your spelling and grammar if you ever expect to receive any respect from others. You should have never published that comment, automatically shows your low class and allows others to stereotype. Good Luck getting a job t McDonald’s.

      1. You’re not your. If you’re going to ridicule someone’s grammar & spelling you should probably make sure yours is correct.

    1. It has been proven that she *did not* have 6 toes. have you looked at other websites? or have you just gone off what you think is true. How do you know its been proven that she had 6 toes and even if she did what’s the big deal?
