Natalie Wood remains a beauty icon among the Hollywood stars. She was the generation of women that made celebrity look even brighter. She died in 1981 and her daughter, thirty-five years later, wrote a book about her life.

In the book we find thoughts of Natalie Wood about her life, the relationships she had, the marriages and also about celebrity and Marylin Monroe. 

She finds herself astonished by the fake images that media promotes explaining this on her relationships. Her first marriage with Robert Wagner was one of the most beautiful presented in the media, although the real truth was different.

"It was extremely difficult for us to really face serious flaws in the relationship when everything looked so ideal on the surface. Looking at it from the outside, we must have seemed like the American Dream. We were both attractive and successful, so what could possibly be wrong? One needs more than approval or fame or wealth to be nourished. It was as if I were the total of all the parts I had played and I had no idea who I really was." 

The same with Warren Beatty! Their relationship was so intense that they believed that was a natural way to be. Natalie Wood describes the actor like "Mount Vesuvius, a live volcano with eruptions each day."

Regarding Marylin Monroe, she saw behind that beauty and charm the sadness of a lonely soul.

"I had known her and seen her days before her death," Natalie Wood writes. "Her beauty, charming wit, and joy of life seemed paradoxical to the tense loneliness which she faced in her life, and was to me, clearly apparent...I realized that her tragedy reminds us all how vulnerable we are, and I chose to try to be stronger." 

It is fascinating to discover people behind photos, words behind facts and lives behind moods. We were all mesmerized by that epoch where glamour was at its highest peak without seeing that behind it, there was real life. This we can find in Natalie Wood's book! In these terms, one of the conclusions in the book was:

"I was once asked if my goal in life was to be a good actress, and at one time perhaps it was. But now I know that most of all my hope is that I will be totally committed to another human being and that that union will bring children and happiness."
