There is one major difference between today’s celebrities and the stars of old Hollywood: social media. Today, fans have direct access to their favorite actors and musicians, and nothing is off limits. They share what they had for breakfast, where they are on vacation, and what the inside of their closets looks like. But the same can’t really be said of old Hollywood stars, like Marylin Monroe, Judy Garland, Lucille Ball, Vincent Price and Elizabeth Taylor, can we? Well, yes and no.
While it was a little easier for the stars of yesteryear to wear an air of mystery on themselves, these film and radio legends still managed to share a bit of their personal lives with beloved fans of the world, reminding everyone that behind the flashing bulbs of glamor raw on the red carpet, someone still has to iron clothes, prepare meals and sort the mail.
These rare photos of old Hollywood stars at home illustrate what their offside life was like, from their hobbies to baking and chores just like everyone else.
