Day 4: #thatswhatshesaid sayings by Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe was a popular American actress and model in the 1950s. Although she was born as Norma Jean Mortenson, her producer for her first-ever film suggested a hollywood-type name: Marilyn Monroe. She was born without a father and her single mother, who struggled everyday, decided to put her in an orphanage and later in a family friends’ home. Rumours are that Marilyn was sexually assaulted throughout her childhood and psychologists argue that that is the reason she became such a legendary sex symbol. Despite her beautiful looks, she is a strong, empowered women who gives wonderful advice to young girls and women.

Here are a few (of many) sayings I have gathered from her.

Marilyn Monroe died on August 5th, 1962, at only 36 years old from a drug overdose. Nowadays, however, people have made conspiracy theories involving depression, anxiety, and multiple affairs with her lovers,including John F. Kennedy, that left her heartbroken and lead her to suicide.
