Paris Hilton went to Instagram to proclaim her love for actress Marilyn Monroe. In a series of posts, the hotel heiress compares himself to Monroe, who died in 1962.

“If she lived today, I and Marilyn would be best friends.”

The reality star calls the actress, real name Norma Jeane Mortenson, her idol and icon. Apparently, during her photo shoots, Paris paid close attention to the outfits and poses of her icon, because there seem to be quite a few similarities. “If she were living today, I and Marilyn would be best friends,” she says on Instagram.

Marilyn Monroe gained fame in the 50s and 60s with films such as Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and The Seven Year Itch in her role as a stupid blonde. She eventually died at the age of 36 as a result of suicide.
