Amy Greene, Marilyn Monroe's Closest Friend, Dishes On The Late Star (VIDEO)

She's one of -- if not the -- most iconic bombshell in cinematic history. And two days before what would have been Marilyn Monroe's 87th birthday, her closest friend Amy Greene was on HuffPost Live to discuss why we're still in love with the troubled legend.

"Every generation: young boys -- they have the poster in the bedroom. Middle-aged men... and on, and on, and on, and on," Greene said.

Greene -- who is quite the brassy lady -- shares details of how she and the then reclusive star first met and why she hated the most recent Marilyn Monroe flick "My Week With Marilyn" in the video above.

Why do you think pop culture can't get enough of Marilyn? Let us know in the comments.
