Norma Jean ~ 1946

In 1945-1946, many photographers were taking Pin-Up photographs of Norma Jean, normally showing off her hourglass figure in 2-piece bathing suits. Years before the Marilyn Monroe persona was "born", Norma Jean was a Modeling Star, she had no idea how big she would end up.

Even though Marilyn Monroe is best known as a "Sex Symbol"to, She always carried herself in a very respectful way. Always dressed to impress and very classy.

Marilyn was always in the spotlight but even to this day, noone really knows everything about her life. She kept to herself, every chance she got.

Everyone in the show business make Monroe out to be a "dumb blonde". No matter how much Marilyn begged and asked for parts that wasn't a showgirl or some dolled-up sex symbol, they refused. Marilyn was NO dumb blonde. She loved to read and was actually very smart.

It didn't matter what was going on in Marilyn's personal life, she always made sure she was camera ready at all times. She was gorgeous! Every man wanted her and Every woman wanted to be her. With or without make-up Marilyn Monroe was simply breathtaking!

Nothing or noone could stop Marilyn from being a Star! It was her dream, her mind was set. She would make her way to stardom with or without the help of the people around her.


Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell became friends on the set of 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes'. Jane Russell described Marilyn as ~ "very shy and very sweet and far more intelligent than people gave her credit for". She also noticed that most of the times where Marilyn was late on set, it was because she was in her dressing room suffering from stage fright. Soon after noticing that, Jane started escorting Marilyn to the set.



Many years after Marilyn's death, her diary entries, along with many poems and letters that she left to her acting coach, Lee Stransberg, were published in October of 2010 in a book called 'Fragments'. They reveal that Marilyn was insecure and a bit suicidal.
"Why do I feel this torture," Monroe wrote in a 1955 diary entry, excerpted by the French news magazine Le Nouvel Observateur. "Or why is that I feel less human than the others (always felt in a certain way than I am sub-human, why in other words, I am the worst, why?)"

Death of Marilyn Monroe

Her part from us was nothing less than a tragic loss.
Marilyn Monroe was found dead in her bedroom of her Brentwood home by her psychiatrist Ralph Greenson after Marilyn's housekeeper, Eunice Murrary, called him, on August 5, 1962. Marilyn was 36 when she died.
