According to a “dieting group” called Slimming World, Marilyn has been named as having the second best body of all time. In first place? Kelly Brook. I didn’t even know who Brook was until I looked her up on IMDB.com. Even then I only recognized one of her projects, The Italian Job, from 2003.
Marilyn Monroe came second in a poll of more than 2,000 people, with Sophia Loren third.
Skinnier women such as Kate Moss and Victoria Beckham were less popular, coming in at 21st and 22nd respectively.
The research was conducted by dieting group Slimming World.
The company’s Jenny Caven said: “We think it sets a good precedent for women.
“We shouldn’t all struggle to be really skinny.
“This is a good example for young women to see that real women have real curves.”
