It shouldn’t be too surprising that Marilyn Monroe was a fan of Jell-O. Consider the fact that the following line was in one of her most iconic movies – Some Like it Hot: “Look at that! Look how she moves! That’s just like Jell-O on springs!”
In her weight-loss plan, Monroe specified a number of different desserts she would have post-dinner. While it wasn’t one of them, Jell-O was one of her lunch desserts. It was between this or cooked fruit.
