SHOCKING Secrets Behind The Flashy Life Of Hollywood Legend Marilyn Monroe

Nari Chakraborty |Sep 08, 2019

Marilyn Monroe was widely acknowledged as the most famous sex symbol of Hollywood back to the 50s but her life behind the spotlight and her sudden death was still a big question until today.

Beautiful, talent, and famous, Hollywood legend Marilyn Monroe had lived under that shadow for a while until the whole truth of her tragic life was revealed.

Marilyn Monroe was widely acknowledged as the most famous sex symbol of Hollywood back to the 50s. Her roles were almost sexy but humorous ladies with iconic blonde hair. To the public, she was a pretty woman singing the birthday song for US President John F Kennedy.

However, the truth is completely opposite to what had been displayed. In fact, Marilyn Monroe is just a showy character created by Norma Jeane Mortensen (her real name) to actualize her dream of being a Hollywood star.

The childhood of Marilyn Monroe

Norma Jeane Mortensen was the daughter of Gladys Monroe Mortensen and Charles Stanley Gifford. She was born in a poor family and lack of love and caring from her father. To earn their living, her mother worked at one of the Hollywood editing movie studios with a low salary.

Gladys could not suffer from depression and finally, be sent to a lunatic asylum for the rest of her life. Without the protection of the mother, Norma Jeane was officially on her own to deal with everything.

Grace McKee - one of Gladys's best friends adopted Norma Jeane. However, this was the beginning of the most terrible events in her life. Since then, in 7 years, she was transferred between 10 daycares and spent a whole year of living in an orphanage.

While living with Grace, she had been sexually abused twice: the first was when she was 8 years old and the second was Ervin Silliman Goddard - Grace's new husband. Then Norma Jeane was sent to live with Olive Brunnings when she was 11. This period witnessed another heartbreaking event in her life: being raped by one of Olive's sons.

Having experienced all of those mental pains, that woman still silently endured. Not until she had already become one of the most outstanding Hollywood stars did she agree to recall her painful childhood.

The Hollywood most beautiful women and three broken marriage

In 1942, the star first got married to James Dougherty - her neighbour when she was only 16. Unfortunately, the marriage didn't go well as Marilyn Monroe was still a teenage girl at that time. It means that she could not bear the responsibility of being a housewife and nurturing for the family.

After four years of living under the same roof, they divorced. That was the time when the name - Marilyn Monroe became big in the industry. The 27-years-old lady was on her way to reach the peak of her career when she re-married Joe DiMaggio - a baseball star. However, because of the career glory, they finally ended up divorcing after sharing 274 days of living together.

After these two breaks, she was extremely devoted to this third time with the screenwriter - Arthur Miller. But life didn't seem to give her happiness even once. She could not give birth. Having heard this news, Marilyn Monroe completely collapsed.

She started using drugs and alcohol and forgetting her marriage with Arthur. They were officially divorced in 1961.

She shared: "I am good, but not an angel. I do sin, but I am not the devil. I am just a small girl in a big world trying to find someone to love.”

To Marilyn Monroe, "love" was such a hard word to say.

Die in loneliness

People praised her beauty and talent yet considered her as a money-making tool. She spent the last days of her life living alone in a private apartment in L.A. It is reported that she experienced constant illness and overused antidepressants, sedatives, and alcohol.

August 5, 1962 - the very day when the whole world heard the startling news, Marilyn Monroe was found dead in her apartment. She was found naked, lying prone with lots of medicines. And no one was there for her. There are still rumours around her cause of death, some even said that she was murdered.

Marilyn Monroe Compressed

The death of this female Hollywood star obsessed next generations for decades and even up to now. They feel sorry for someone so beautiful and gifted but 'murdered' by the loneliness in the most ignorant way.

As one of her quotes: "Beneath the makeup and behind the smile I am just a girl who wishes for the world." And her wishes never became true.
