Marilyn Monroe (born Norma Jeane Mortenson; June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962) was an American actress, model, and singer. She was one of the most popular film stars and sex symbols of the 1950s, and is considered one of the most important popular culture icons of the twentieth century.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Monroe spent most of her childhood in foster homes and an orphanage, and married for the first time at the age of sixteen. While working in a factory as part of the war effort in 1944, she met a photographer taking pictures for army publications, and began a successful pin-up modeling career. Her popularity as a model led to two short-lived film contracts with Twentieth Century-Fox (1946–1947) and Columbia Pictures (1948), during which she had her first starring role in the low-budget musical Ladies of the Chorus (1948). She then appeared in small roles in The Asphalt Jungle (1950) and All About Eve (1950), and signed a new film contract with Fox in 1951. Under the new contract, she quickly became a popular actress with roles in several comedies, including As Young as You Feel (1951) and Monkey Business (1952), and in the dramas Clash by Night (1952) and Don’t Bother to Knock (1952). In early 1952, she was also at the center of major scandal, when it was revealed that she had posed for nude photos before becoming a star. Instead of the scandal damaging her career, it made her a box office draw.
Monroe became one of the most bankable Hollywood stars with leading roles in three films in 1953: the film noir Niagara, which focused on her sex appeal, and the comedies Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and How to Marry a Millionaire, which established her star image as a “dumb blonde”. Despite her success, she disliked the studio’s control over her career, including typecasting and low salary, and was suspended by them in January 1954 when she refused to participate in their next planned film for her. The dispute was settled in March, after which she appeared in one the biggest successes of her career, The Seven Year Itch (1955). When the studio was still reluctant to change her contract, Monroe left Hollywood for the East Coast in late 1954, where she formed a film production company, Marilyn Monroe Productions, with photographer Milton Greene. She spent 1955 building her company and studying method acting at the Actors Studio, until reaching a settlement with the studio at the end of the year, which granted her more control and a larger salary. Her following films, Bus Stop (1956), The Prince and the Showgirl (1957), and Some Like It Hot (1959) garnered her appreciation for her acting as well as a Golden Globe award and a nomination for a BAFTA. Her last completed film was the drama The Misfits (1961).
Monroe’s troubled private life has also received much attention. She experienced addiction and other mental health issues, and had two highly publicized marriages, to baseball player Joe DiMaggio and playwright Arthur Miller, which both ended in divorce. She died at the age of 36 from an overdose of barbiturates at her home on August 5, 1962. Although the death was ruled a probable suicide, several conspiracy theories have been proposed in the decades following her death.
