People Marilyn Monroe Crypt.jpg

Some like it hot - but hopefully that's not the case for this lucky auction winner. We are talking the afterlife here.

A lucky E-Bay bidder has won the right to rest in piece looking down - literally - at Marilyn Monroe. For just $4.6 million, they snapped up the crypt directly above the actress in an auction that ended Monday.

The eBay.com listing says the space at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery above Monroe is being vacated, making room for someone else. The listing also offers the detail that the current occupant is "looking face down on" Monroe.

Bidding for the auction started at $500,000 on Aug 14.

Monroe was laid to rest at the cemetery in 1962.
