My Obsession With Marilyn Monroe

Updated on February 10, 2011

When it Started

It's a little embarrassing to say that I am obssessed with stars but there is a few that have caught my interest for some reason or another, such as Lucille Ball, James Dean, Marlon Brando, Bette Davis, Elvis Presley, John Lennon, George Harrison amongst some others. Marilyn is just one of a few movie stars that I have been interested in. Maybe obsession is a little exaggerated but probably my sisters don't thinks so.
I think my obsession in Marilyn Monroe started as a slow interest from the time I first saw a picture of her. I remember my dad said once that he thought that Marilyn Monroe was one of the most beautful woman in the world. From there she just caught my interest and I started watching her movies and reading about her life. My dad got me interested in documentaries, yea I know I am a nerd, but we would watch WWII documentaries together and so one night I saw a documentary on Marilyn Monroe and I decided, what the heck I will watch it and it didn't dissappoint. From that documentary I saw Marilyn as a person instead of a sex symbol and I could see the sadness in her eyes. I knew that there was something behind the glitz and glamour and there was a person almost reaching out for something that maybe she didn't know what it was. I saw her natural dark hair instead of the bleached blonde that she is known for and it touched me. Nevertheless, this hub isn't a biography or anything, just a few pictures and snipits of a movie star that you can say is the movie star of the century, that has made the biggest impression during the little time that she was on Earth.

Marilyn the Star

Marilyn was born on June 1,1926 in Los Angeles California. Her real name was Norma Jean Mortenson but there was some mix up with the name on her birth certificate concerning her father so she really never knew for sure who her father was. She did see a picture that her mother showed her of her father and she thought he looked like Clark Gable, so she would fantasize that he was her real father.

When she was around 7 years old her mother had a nervous breakdown and was not able to care for Norma Jean anymore and this is when she got bounced from home to home for a whle. She experienced some abuse and sexual abuse from family members of her foster homes. She also had an aunt that took her in and gave her the name of her aunts husband which was Monroe.

Her aunt was the one that really encouaged her to become a model because of her unique beauty and had high hopes for Norma Jean. Norma Jean married very young to a man named Daughtry but that didn't last long and neither did her other two marriages. Many believe that her promiscuity as an adult was the result of the abuse that she experienced and it was hard for her to really be committed to someone.

She became such a huge sex symbol and the model for what women should look like and how men want women to look, which by the way is far different than how women are viewed today. I think Marilyn was a size 8 or so, which would have been considered obese in today's standards, but she made the look her own and everyone loved her curves that made her the biggest sex symbol of all time, with a star on the walk of fame even.

Marilyn and Conspiracies

 Now I can say that I am into some conspiracies but I am not a huge conspiracy theorist or anything like that. I mean everyone has heard the rumors about Robert Kennedy, and JFK and her being murdered by one of them. That she had a kazillion abortions, and that she was an all around bad girl. I don't know if any of those things are true, I wasn't there and I do not pretend to be a genius about comspiracies. I don't know if she slept with the kennedy's, but I know if she did she wasn't the first person to sleep with a president and she certainly won't be the last.
I do know that she made a mark in history in a way that only she could and that she will always be remembered.
I think it was very sad the way she died however, overdosed on pills whether taken intentionally or not, naked in her bed and all alone. That is a very sad way to die.

Marilyn Quotes

 A career is wonderful, but you can't curl up with it on a cold night.
Marilyn Monroe

A sex symbol becomes a thing. I just hate to be a thing.
Marilyn Monroe

An actress is not a machine, but they treat you like a machine. A money machine.
Marilyn Monroe

Before marriage, a girl has to make love to a man to hold him. After marriage, she has to hold him to make love to him.
Marilyn Monroe

Being a sex symbol is a heavy load to carry, especially when one is tired, hurt and bewildered.
Marilyn Monroe

Dogs never bite me. Just humans.
Marilyn Monroe

Dreaming about being an actress, is more exciting then being one.
Marilyn Monroe

Fame will go by and, so long, I've had you, fame. If it goes by, I've always known it was fickle. So at least it's something I experience, but that's not where I live.
Marilyn Monroe

First, I'm trying to prove to myself that I'm a person. Then maybe I'll convince myself that I'm an actress.
Marilyn Monroe

Hollywood is a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul.
Marilyn Monroe

Husbands are chiefly good as lovers when they are betraying their wives.
Marilyn Monroe

I am invariably late for appointments - sometimes as much as two hours. I've tried to change my ways but the things that make me late are too strong, and too pleasing.
Marilyn Monroe

I am involved in a freedom ride protesting the loss of the minority rights belonging to the few remaining earthbound stars. All we demanded was our right to twinkle.
Marilyn Monroe

I am not interested in money. I just want to be wonderful.
Marilyn Monroe

I don't know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot.
Marilyn Monroe

I don't mind living in a man's world as long as I can be a woman in it.
Marilyn Monroe

I don't mind making jokes, but I don't want to look like one.
Marilyn Monroe

I don't want to make money, I just want to be wonderful.
Marilyn Monroe

I have feelings too. I am still human. All I want is to be loved, for myself and for my talent.
Marilyn Monroe

I have too many fantasies to be a housewife. I guess I am a fantasy.
Marilyn Monroe

Goodbye Norma Jean

Marilyn died on Aug 5, 1962 in Los Angeles. She was known to be the epitome of the dumb blonde but I don't think she was dumb at all. It is sad that Hollywood thinks it is sexy for a smart, young, sensitive girl to take on the persona of a dumb blonde. That was never her and that's what made her so sad. She knew she wasn't allowed to be herself. She wanted to be a dramatic actress which she played very well. Unfortunately, everyone just wanted to think of her as a sex symbol.

I guess at a young age I wanted to know everything there was to know about Marilyn Monroe and so my obsession of sorts continues. I have watched all of her movies and read biographies and I guess her pictures are really the legacy that she leaves behind, she always looked so amazing in her pictures and now her beauty is frozen in time for us to admire.

One of Marilyn's husbands was Joe Dimaggio, famous baseball player and until Joe DiMaggio died in 1999, he would send Marilyn Monroe flowers to her grave every week.

The Most Famous Marilyn Picture Ever!

Fun Facts about Marilyn

In 1999, Marilyn was voted the 'Sexiest Woman of the Century' by People Magazine.

Her mother was born in Piedras Negras, Mexico but it is unclear what her actual race was.

Contrary to what people thought about her religious background, Marilyn had actually converted to Judaism, many people think that she was an atheist and that's not correct.

    Wonderful hub. She was very beautiful, and intelligent. I thought she was great in the film, the Misfits. She was and extremely charming woman in ways that I believe really turned men on because she was one of the two most beautiful women of the world. I think Gina Lola Bridgita was breathtakingly beautiful. I think all women are beautiful because of motherhood. I am a man, but I think women should have been in charge of the world. We have had too many wars. Women understand the value of life more I think because of child birth maybe. GBY

    Marilyn Monroe was truly a star. It's sad tho,that she died on "junkie" way - although - she had everything she wanted. I can understand the way of her thinking back then, and why she didn't gave up of her "heroin addiction". It was beautiful - just like her. Heroin, is "De Facto" best known drug for depression and things that can bother one star like Marilyn or anyone - what is actually a problem in these days. Her dead made her "undiable" hitting her,situating her, to the center of one cult and culture that even today is walking on streets of U.S.A and world-wide.

    Nice hub, I am from Serbia ,and I did everything for this hub - that can benefit you. { clicks,clicks ,clicks :D } and vote up,and FOLLOWER. I am honest, and direct - always. Soo, respect,and

    hugs all over from SERBIA.

    Lady Jane, I so enjoyed this tribute to one of the greatest actors of the 20th century. She could break your heart and make you laugh. She depicted so much heart while being, at the same time, the ultimate glamor girl. I loved Marylin when I was just a kid, watching old movies on TV - it was the way the whole room just seemed to light up when she appeared on screen.

    drbj thanks for reading I appreciate your kind comments and you are right "Bus Stop" is a movie that really allows her talent to shine through. But like Elvis, Marilyn had talent in acting but someone else was pulling the strings because they weren't taken seriously and that's a shame. Cheers.

    @GreenLotus thanks for your kind comments and Maryilyn was definitely chock full of charisma. Cheers.

    @Lee B you are right it was apparent to me as well in certain movies that she was dumming herself down because that is what sold back then a dumb sexy blonde but I could tell she was smarter than that. Thanks for stopping by. Cheers.

    Marilyn Monroe was a stunning woman and a remarkable talent. It's sad to think that she never seemed to know just how good an actor she really was. See the movie, "Bus Stop," if you can find it and you'll see what I mean.

    Lady Jane, great hub, it fits you well. "Dogs don't bite me, but humans do", my favorite of her quotes. I enjoyed reading them as most would have you think she was a ditsy blond lacking ability to but one thing. I always figured most had to be relatively well educated to rise to stardom. It's good to know she denounced stardom and saw her employers for what most are "purple people eaters" never swallowing but spitting a lot. Thank you for a good read. 50

    @somelikeitscott I know exactly what you mean. As a matter of fact my sister and I were talking about this just the other day about actors and movies and how they were such classy stars back then and now most of the younger ones are just bratty who think they have more talent then they actually do. I think of people like James Dean and Marilyn Monroe and Marlon Brando and they just don't make them like that anymore. I appreciate your input my friend and thanks for visiting. Cheers.

    Great hub- love her too!! Is it just me or were these people real stars as opposed to the supposed "stars" we have today? It could have been the studio system that only allowed us to see what they wanted us to see, it could have been our youthful eyes looking at them and remembering them fondly as our parents educated us on them like your Dad did for you but it could also have been that they just had more talent!
