Marilyn Monroe Statue "Mooning" Connecticut Church

A 26-foot tall statue Marilyn Monroe statue recently installed in a Stamford, Conn. park is scandalizing locals — because the movie starlet’s derriere is pointed straight at a neighboring house of worship.

Artist Seward Johnson’s “Forever Marilyn” captures the moment from “The Seven Year Itch” where the actress holds down her white dress as air blows up from a subway grate.

In the film, only co-star Tom Ewell sees what’s under Monroe’s skirt, but in Johnson’s colossal interpretation her underwear-clad caboose is on full display to all viewers — especially to those visiting the nearby First Congregational Church.

“It’s disrespectful to the church,” churchgoer Pam Riley told The Stamford Advocate.
