About actress Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe, born Norma Jeane Mortenson on June 26th, 1926, in Los Angeles, California. She was one of the most famous actresses and sex symbols from Hollywood’s Golden Age. Marilyn died tragically at age 36 from a drug overdose in 1962, but she became an international symbol for beauty and sexuality forevermore. The actress is considered by many to be the embodiment of “The American Dream” because her life story embodies rags-to-riches success: She went from being a poor country girl who worked as a pin-up model before becoming America’s number one actress during the late 1950s.

Focus Storyline for “Blonde”

Her Childhood:

Marilyn grew up feeling like she never quite fit in with her family or their small community of Grand Rapids, Michigan. She would often escape into books and creative pursuits as an outlet from this loneliness. When Marilyn got older, she found solace in acting through school plays which allowed her to show off some of the talents she had honed over years of being left out at home. While enrolled at the University of Michigan in 1947, Marilyn had a crisis of conscience. She thought that she would be happier if she became more like her classmates, and so Marilyn left college to marry James Dougherty, who was the man with whom Marilyn had been seeing on and off for several years.

The Marriage:

Marilyn’s marriage ceremony took place at Grace Episcopal Church in San Francisco, California, before they moved back east, where their first child, Norma Jeane, Jr., aka “June,” was born. They then settled into an uneventful life. As suburbanites, but it wasn’t long before Marilyn started resenting; how unhappy she felt being stuck at home.

It is not living up to her potential or even getting proper attention; from her husband because he spent most of his time; at work and with the kids. Marilyn eventually turned to model; as a means of earning more money, but it was never quite enough.

Around this time, Marilyn’s father passed away in 1940 from complications related to surgery that he had for an unspecified abdominal problem two years prior, and her mom Eunice became Marilyn’s primary caretaker after she moved into their house; Marilyn felt neglected by James because he was always working or spending his free time with June while she tried hard not to fall deeper into depression over her situation.
