Hollywood icon Clark Gable never had an affair with Marilyn Monroe because she smelled too much, according to a new biography. The pair both starred in the 1961 film The Misfits, and were often rumoured to have a begun a steamy affair during the shoot. However, the author of new book Clark Gable: Tormented star, David Bret, says, "(Gable was) not in the least amorously interested in Marilyn. In as much as he had a fetish for cleanliness, she could not have been less fastidious regarding her personal hygiene. "She suffered from what today would be described as a form of irritable bowel syndrome."
