Top 10 Marilyn Monroe Quotes

Talented, Beautiful and smart, actress Marilyn Monroe became one of the world’s first biggest sex symbols. Born with the name Norma Jeane, she began life with one strike against her. Her mother was mentally unstable forcing Norma Jeane to live in several foster homes and her father left the picture before she was even born. Despite her childhood, Marilyn made it to the top. She had the look. She had the hair. She had the body and the little-girl pout. Yet above all, she was an actress… or at least she tried to be. She had professional training, and a number of acting coaches. Being sexy was a given. She could also be funny or serious or charming depending on the venue. She worked very hard and studied her every move to perfect her performance. But it all came to a tragic end when Monroe was 36.  She was found dead in her Los Angeles home, allegedly with a bottle of pills. Her death was ruled a “probable suicide,” but it generated a lot of conspiracy theories. Her legacy lives on through pop culture. Some look up to her as a role model. From Taylor Swift to the art of Andy Warhol to latest trends in fashion and film, Monroe inspired many to go boldly in the direction of their dreams and live to have it all.
