Keep Westword Free

Reader: Sydney Spies is a modern-day Marilyn Monroe

Our latest post about Sydney Spies, who landed a Syfy movie role following publicity generated by a high-school yearbook photo banned for sexiness, has been divisive, as usual.

Here's a post from someone who's definitely pro-Sydney and thinks she's got a big future ahead of her.

Marilyn Monroe went through the same shit, honey! And she is just as beautiful and amazing today! The way I see it is you are our modern day Marilyn! But the things that make you different than her tho is that you aren't taken anyone's shit! Rock on Girl!!!!!

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
