At a recent Julien's Auctions "Icons and Idols" sale, revealing medical files and x-ray images belonging to the aliases of Marilyn Monroe sold for $25,600. The files contain information about Monroe's ectopic pregnancy in 1957, as well as a cartilage implant in her chin to fix a "deformity" and procedures to alter the appearance of her nose.  While many probably suspected that the actress had work done, now the world knows it to be true. Does that change the fact that she was hot? Nope.

Other items sold at the auction include Monroe's Redbook Award, a dress that belonged to Princess Diana, personal belongings from comedians Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, and Walter Matthau's Dodger's baseball cap.
