Old Hollywood Stars At Home (PHOTOS)

There's something about the glamour of Old Hollywood that continues to command our attention. Perhaps it's a sort of nostalgia for an irreplaceable era in the 20th century or maybe it's admiration for the lavish lives of our favorite silver-screen stars from back in the days. Whichever it is, it's undeniable that there's something about the bygone era that inevitably draws us, and we're currently obsessed with this Life magazine feature, which gives us a peek at how Old Hollywood stars spent their time at home. Whether it's a glimpse of Marilyn Monroe curled up in a sofa reading a book (she was an avid reader) or a snapshot of Jayne Mansfield bathing in her fabulous pink-carpeted bathroom, these photos capture the soft, and fun, side of some of the most beloved Old Hollywood celebrities in their most private environment: their home.
