“I believe that everything happens for a reason.

Marilyn Monroe (Norma Jeane Mortenson) Short Biography

Born on 1 June 1926 in Los Angeles, California, United States, Norma Jeane Mortenson, who later changed her name to Marilyn Monroe, was a popular American actress, model, and a Hollywood sex symbol.

She started modeling for a photographer after she had gotten married at 16, and in 1944 she signed a contract with Blue Book Model Agency.

In 1945, she re-invented her image by straightening her hair and dyeing it blonde, as she was fit to be a pin-up model. A year later she landed a 6-month contract with Twentieth Century Fox.

After some success in a few minor roles in several movies, Monroe received a 7-year contract from Twentieth Century Fox in December 1950.

As Monroe’s career was on the rise an old picture of her posing nude started to create a scandal. But amidst the scandal, Monroe found success as an up and coming sex symbol.

Monroe starred in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes in 1953, which became one of the biggest box office successes in that year. And from it came one of Monroe’s most popular performances “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend.”

Over her career Monroe has made 23 movies which grossed $200 million during their debuts, cementing Marilyn Monroe in history as a Hollywood icon.
