Who was Marilyn Monroe? / Facts


  • Famous for playing "dumb blonde" characters, she became one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1950s, emblematic of the era's attitudes towards sexuality

  • She continues to be considered a major popular culture icon
  • Born and raised in Los Angeles, Monroe spent most of her childhood in foster homes and an orphanage and married for the first time at the age of sixteen
  • While working in a factory as part of the war effort in 1944, she met a photographer and began a successful pin-up modeling career

  • Monroe faced a scandal when it was revealed that she had posed for nude photos before becoming a star, but rather than damaging her career, the story increased interest in her films

  • Although she played a significant role in the creation and management of her public image throughout her career, she was disappointed at being typecast and underpaid by the studio
  • She was briefly suspended in early 1954 for refusing a film project, but returned to star in one of the biggest box office successes of her career, The Seven Year Itch (1955)

  • She dedicated 1955 to building her company and began studying method acting at the Actors Studio
  • In late 1955, Fox awarded her a new contract, which gave her more control and a larger salary
