Marilyn Monroe was a very famous singer, model, actress and perhaps most notably a sex symbol. She’s starred in a myriad of box office hit motion picture movies during the 1950s and 1960s.
Marilyn grew up in foster homes and later began her career as a model which eventually led to acting. Marilyn’s “dumb blonde” persona landed her many films including Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, How to Marry a Millionaire, and The Seven Year Itch.
Marilyn’s final years unfortunately filled with tragedy including drugs, sickness, and finally an overdose that led to her death. TV Guide classified Marilyn Monroe as the No. 1 women in the category of Film’s Sexiest Women of All Time in 2009.
