The Complete History of Nude Celebrity Photo Leaks

Marilyn Monroe

Date: March 1952
Exposed By: Tom Kelley
Reaction: Monroe posed for a nude photo session with Kelley in 1949. Three years later, it was published in a calendar and was nearly a PR disaster for the actress, whose career had picked up in the meantime. Monroe met the scandal head-on, doing interviews in which she simply said she needed to pay the rent. A picture from this session was used in the first issue of Playboy, as Marilyn's Sweetheart of the Month photo. (The name Playmate was not used until later.)
