Happy 88th Birthday, Ms. Monroe.
(Excerpt) Read more at buzzfeed.com ...
She was born Norma Jeane Mortenson on June 1, 1926 in Los Angeles, California. She died on August 5, 1962 at the age of 36 in Brentwood, Los Angeles, California. She would have been 88 if she were alive today.
Marilyn Monroe was a woman.
Tragic life like so many of Hollywood like Judy Garland and throw away lives from Disney
The photos didn’t make me think one whit differently about MM.
They were REAL!
So are about half the people in the world. :)
I’m not thinking any differently about her after viewing the photos. Gee, what went wrong?
I still remember the day she died. I was 12 years-old at a summer day camp making a hammered copper ashtray for my parents (imagine that today LOL!) when the news came over the radio that she had died. All of us boys were very upset.
She was the hottest bride on “Seven Brides For Seven Brothers”.
She was a beautiful woman. Apart from what she was like as a person (which I have little way of knowing) she was simply physically attractive.
And she got far better looking as she got older, in my opinion.
And I like the fact she didn’t have the stick figure look. She had some curves.
To many men, she epitomized feminine, physical beauty.
Sounds like she had a sad life. Well. I guess that’s how it goes.
I still think the same thing, but some of those pics made me think it harder.
She worked at an aircraft plant during ww2. I’ll try to find that pick.
Back when 21” waists were in.
On the contrary, those pictures confirm everything I thought I know about her. Nice girl. What a waste.
After reading about her in “Goddess” years ago, I lost all respect for her, altho it wasn’t too high to begin with . . . basically a first class tramp with no morals and horrible personal hygiene. I had very little pity for her.
Gotta’ read “Goddess” and you’ll understand.
Yep, and she seemed to be, for the lack of a better word, approachable. Not plastic and distant like so many others, but approachable.
I suppose that if you had seen Monroe on the street and waved, she would have smiled and waved back.
she didn't have the "cute" factor so it must be something that a woman would not understand....
but I think its mostly that she was easy and everybody knew it....
