It might be possible. I hate the belief that people with autism must have an unpleasant look or have to wear glasses.
In some interviews she seemed so spaced-out and very shy. But keep in mind that she had a troubled childhood also.
And was under medication.

So I should just assume she had Asperger's because she was weird?

im 6'3 blue eyed, muscular and i consider myself good looking (alot of people have told me so) . noone would ever pick me as having aspergers. Also i am going to get into acting very soon. so my point is of course not! and i do honestly believe marilyn monroe might have had it.

I actually read somewhere that most aspergers people are meant to be good looking (:

In fact i've read that many girls with asperger's barely look like they would be in the spectrum. We could never know.
Just because a person looks radiant (and she had depression!!) doesn't imply that is fully integrated.

Depressions are a lot more common than Autism is.

Right. But Autism (not HFA) isn't so rare either.

people who have depression usually arent great actors, marilyn had something different something special. of course behind the scenes she was a very shy introvert. all this points to me as her having aspergers .
