  • Who is Marilyn Monroe (Norma Jeane Baker)? About Marilyn Monroe’s life, Best Quotes of Marilyn Monroe:
  • Marilyn Monroe (d., Norma Jeane Mortenson, June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962) is an American actress and model. Known for playing “stupid blonde” characters in comedy movies, he was one of the most famous movie stars and sex symbols of the 20th century. Although he has been in the movies for only ten years, his films have grossed $ 200 million in 1962, when he died unexpectedly. It continues to be seen as a major popular cultural symbol.

 

  • Marilyn Monroe was born and raised in Los Angeles, where she spent most of her childhood in protective family homes and orphanages and married at the age of sixteen. As part of the war, in 1944, while working in a factory, he introduced a photographer from First Motion Picture Unit and started a successful pin-up modeling career. This led to short film contracts with Twentieth Century-Fox (1946-47) and Columbia Pictures (1948). After a series of small film roles, he signed a new contract with Fox in 1951. Over the next two years, he became a popular actor in various comedy films such as The Feeling of the Young and the Dangerous Game, as well as in dramatic films such as Between Two Love and The Dangerous Carer. Monroe faced a scandal when she said she had taken naked photos before becoming a star, but instead of hurting her career, she became more interested in her story films.

  • Monroe’s troubled private life attracted much attention. He struggled with substance abuse, depression and anxiety. He married retired baseball star Joe DiMaggio and playwright Arthur Miller, resulting in two divorces. On August 5, 1962, when he was 36 years old at his Los Angeles home, he died of overdose of barbiturate. Although his death was officially overdosed as probable suicide caused by barbiturate, many speculations were made on the cause of death, and conspiracy theories were created.

 

  • In 1999, Monroe settled in the sixth place in the American Film Institute’s list of the greatest female movie stars of all time.

  • Quotes about misattributed marilyn monroe, believe, trust

  • Quotes about friends, heartbreak, inspirational, life, love, sisters
  • “This life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soulmate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.”
