Marilyn Monroe – 6 Toes?

Marilyn did NOT have six toes on one foot!

Article by Gina Arildsen

Pic #1 – The “6 toes” pic

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)

    You cant even see her feet in those picture, what a rediculous page to make

    #1501 Reply


    It would have shown no one is perfect and that beauty has flaws even if she had 10 toes on each foot it would not make her a freak in any sense and what this article states is more offensive in my opinion

    Glad to know the truth. Even the show bones stated she had six toes wish they let her rest in peace

    Wherever you got your info it is wrong. She dif in fact have six toes on her left foot but had the sixth one surgicaly removed in her early hollywood career. You should really tell people the truth. Would you tell me where you got your info? i would like to tell them that they are wrong if it was another website

    It would be a good article if you didn’t portray a mild deformity or genetic anomaly as the worst thing in the world. So she didn’t have 6 toes, big deal. How does it make her less or more of an icon? Why did you have to add all that drama there?

    Wow, you must be vain. Lets say we are not talking about Marilyn Monroe, but you had 6 toes. Would that make you a ‘freak’, as you so lightly put it?
    Grow up.
    I came here for curious reasons.

    there is also the rumour that she only had 4 toes… it comes out in a Bert Stern photo taken during the so called “Last Sitting” – in fact, it was the shimmering light from behind that made it look so!

    You have to show the actual picture that shows the “sixth toe” to show that this isn’t such a bizarre assumption

    Marilyn was neither deformed nor a freak. She is a beautiful, inspiring starlet who didn’t get the chance to live out the rest of the charmed life she deserved so greatly. Read her biography, watch ALL her movies instead of believing a self-absorbed agent.

    I think,maybe there’s photoshop,I mean something shouldn’t be some photoshop of her toes? I think it’s possible.(R.I.P Marilyn Monroe)
