Hollywood legend Tony Curtis claims he had an affair with Marilyn Monroe, which resulted in her getting pregnant and eventually miscarrying
Marilyn Monroe allegedly miscarried Tony Curtis' baby.
The blonde bombshell - who died in 1962 aged just 36 - reportedly had a fling with the Hollywood actor during the filming of 1959 movie 'Some Like It Hot', even though they were both married to other people.
Curtis, who was wed to Janet Leigh at the time, claims the affair resulted in Monroe getting pregnant.
She told him the news as the pair were confessing their affair to the actress' husband Arthur Miller.
Curtis said: "I was stunned. I just stood there. The room was so silent that I could hear tyres screeching on Santa Monica Boulevard."
But the screen legend, father of Jamie Lee Curtis, was later told by Miller - who consulted Monroe's doctor - that the baby could not be his.
Curtis claims he asked Miller what they should do, to which the playwright replied: "Finish the film and stay out of our lives."
Curtis added in his new memoir 'The Making of Some Like It Hot': "I stared at him for a minute. Then I looked at her. She was crying. 'OK,' I said. 'That I can do.' I turned and walked out. I went to my dressing room, closed the door and locked it."
The pair ended their affair when filming finished, before Curtis later learned of Monroe's miscarriage.
