  • I remember hearing about quite a lot of this.
    But i'm not sure how much of it was proven.
    I liked Marilyn, she seemed troubled and in a lot of her interviews i could tell she was never actually happy.
    We don't get the vintage beauties like this anymore we get people like the Kardashians. The role models were much more beautiful and classy and interesting back then.

  • It really disgusts me that Hugh Hefner bought a grave next to hers, knowing that he leaked her nudes without her permission. She already had a difficult life, and she still can't escape him.

    • Yeah. I heard in the news that Marilyn apparently was so embarrassed by the photographs that she signed as ‘Mona Monroe’ on release forms, hoping that they wouldn’t come back to haunt her.

      Whole Empire Built without consent.

  • I don't know who would think she is stupid I have never seen her IQ but she always looked so smart since what made her an icon was not just her beauty rather that beautiful image she created around her that made them idiolise her and make her a fantasy she is smart enough to understand beauty and accentuate it

    • Good Question. I appreciate. Celebrities not only enter our head space consistently, but our hearts and emotions. As per my understanding they never die.

  • Whoa, I wasn't aware of some things written here. Great job!

    • Agree.

      It is one of several factors that have a major influence. Income is moderately tied to IQ but not strongly. There are plenty of millionaires who are geniuses. There are plenty of smart people who are not rich.

      Other factors that have a major influence are emotional intelligence (EQ), mental health, physical health, and one's general attitude and ambition.

  • And her name was Norma Jean Baker.

    And she was married to a sailor in the Navy before she got famous, and lived for a time on Catalina Island in California.

  • Some of those are likely true, but some (i. e. the high IQ) are urban myths.
