Marilyn Monroe: The Brightest Blonde Ever

She was born Norma Jeane Mortenson on June 1, 1926 in Los Angeles, California. But she is known as Marilyn Monroe! Her trade mark is: lisp, breathless voice, platinum blonde hair, voluptuous figure. The real blonde, the greatest blonde, the sexiest woman of the 20th century. She was a bright star! And her life story was really bright too. Sometimes it was happy, sometimes it was sad, sometimes it was really tragic, but she lived her life and she was worth of being Marilyn Monroe – the symbol of sexuality and femininity.

"Sex is a part of nature. I go along with nature."

Marilyn Monroe

I don't want to talk about her biography, we all know that or can check it any moment. I want to speak about her personality, to show what she was living for …

"I knew I belonged to the public and to the world, not because I was talented or even beautiful, but because I had never belonged to anything or anyone else."

"Marilyn is a kind of ultimate. She is uniquely feminine. Everything she does is different, strange, and exciting, from the way she talks to the way she uses that magnificent torso. She makes a man proud to be a man."

Clark Gable


Marilyn Monroe left Hollywood to pursue serious acting by studying under Lee Strasberg at his Actors' Studio in New York City.

"Marilyn always dreamt of being an actress. She didn't, by the way, dream of being just a star. She dreamt of being an actress. And she had always lived somehow with that dream. And that is why, despite the fact that she became one of the most unusual and outstanding stars of all time, she herself was never satisfied. When she came to New York, she began to perceive the possibilities of really accomplishing her dream, of being an actress."

"Nobody discovered her, she earned her own way to stardom."

Darryl Zanuck, president of 20th Century Fox


"My illusions didn't have anything to do with being a fine actress. I knew how third rate I was. I could actually feel my lack of talent, as if it were cheap clothes I was wearing inside. But my God, how I wanted to learn, to change, to improve!"

The classic shot of her dress blowing up around her legs as she stands over a subway grating in this film was originally shot on Manhattan's Lexington Avenue at 52nd St. on 15th September 1954 at 1:00 a.m. Amazingly, her very narrow spike heels don't get stuck or break in the subway grating, although this was a universal problem at the time for the countless women wearing that very popular style heel in New York City in that era.

"I don't know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot."

"Marilyn's a phenomenon of nature, like Niagara Falls and the Grand Canyon. All you can do is stand back and be awed by it."

Nunnally Johnson, producer of How to Marry a Millionaire

"My problem is that I drive myself... I'm trying to become an artist, and to be true, and sometimes I feel I'm on the verge of craziness, I'm just trying to get the truest part of myself out, and it's very hard. There are times when I think, 'All I have to be is true'. But sometimes it doesn't come out so easily. I always have this secret feeling that I'm really a fake or something, a phony."

Marilyn Monroe


"She was an absolute genius as a comedic actress, with an extraordinary sense for comedic dialogue. It was a God-given gift. Believe me, in the last fifteen years there were ten projects that came to me, and I'd start working on them and I'd think, 'It's not going to work, it needs Marilyn Monroe.' Nobody else is in that orbit; everyone else is earthbound by comparison."

Billy Wilder, director of Some Like it Hot and The Seven Year Itch

"Marilyn is as near a genius as any actress I ever knew. She is an artist beyond artistry. She is the most completely realized and authentic film actress since Garbo. She has that same unfathomable mysteriousness. She is pure cinema."

Joshua Logan, director of Bus Stop

When told she was not the star in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953) Marilyn was quoted "Well whatever I am, I'm still the blonde."

She was not interested in money, she just wanted to be wonderful! And she was doing that!

"Please don't make me a joke. End the interview with what I believe... I want to be an artist, an actress with integrity."
