Marilyn Monroe (Norma Jean Mortenson) was born in June 1, 1926, in Los Angeles and was the third child of film maker in RKO Pictures, Gladys Pearl Baker. When Gladys was fifteen years old, she married John Newton Baker, who was nine years older, the spouses had two children: Robert (1917-1933) and Vernis (born 1919). Gladys filed for divorce in 1921 and Baker took the children to his place in Kentucky. Marilyn Monroe found out about the existence of an older sister, only in 12 years. In 1924, Gladys married Martin Edward Mortensen, but before she became pregnant with Norma Jean, they broke up, and in 1928 finally divorced. The identity of the girl’s father remained unknown — Mortensen is listed as the father’s birth certificate (although his name is written there as Mortenson), and when Gladys baptized her daughter, she wrote it down with the surname Baker.

It is hard to call a girl’s childhood happy. At the age of two weeks, Norma was given to a foster family where she lived for almost 7 years. The following year the girl lived with her aunt and in the orphanage.  Also it is known that the girl was tried to rape when she was not even 12: the first time was a stepfather, and the second time a cousin. She said about sex: “Personally, sex and sexual problems arouse no more interest than cleaning shoes”, “If I ever understand why people are so interested in sex, I’ll be lucky.” Under the age of 19, Marilyn Monroe tried to commit suicide twice. Once she turned on the gas, the second – swallowed sleeping pills. So, as you can see, Marilyn Monroe had many psychological problems that influenced her life all the time. Marilyn’s first independent victory was to get rid of congenital stuttering. It worsened after the orphanage: the girl could not utter without hesitation and two words. She corrected her deficiency for three years. And for 16 years, without the help of speech therapists, got rid of stuttering.

Marilyn Monroe first married at 16, then dropped out of school and settled with her husband, Jim Dougherty. It was a forced measure rather than a whim, as she was afraid to return to the orphanage again. The adoptive family was going to move, and they did not want to take her with them. Therefore, early marriage was promptly approved. A year after the wedding, Jim was in the Navy and Norma Jeane went to work at an aircraft factory.

Once in autumn a team of directors and photographers arrived at the factory with the aim of making a photo essay to the contribution of American women who struggled against Nazism. Photographer David Conover, noticing Norma Jean, suggested her to pose for series of shots for $ 5 per hour. She agreed. So began her stellar career. Soon she left the factory and began working as a photo model. Returned from the war, Jim did not approve this idea and he put Norma an ultimatum: either a career or a family. As she had ambitions, she wanted to act in films and, at that time, she found out that producers prefer unmarried actresses. The fate of this marriage was sealed. Later she said: “I always knew that I became famous not because of my talent or beauty, but only because I never completely belonged to anyone or anything.”

Twenty-year-old Marilyn Monroe was not classically beautiful, and behind the radiant smile in the pictures for magazines, postcards and calendars was hidden the sadness that had settled in her since childhood, a lot of complexes and tendency to severe depression. Later one of her close critics would write: “Not being loved at 25, or 35, or 45 is tolerable, if you were loved at 5 years old. To say that Marilyn was bypassed in childhood is to say very little. ” Marilyn herself recalled: “No one ever called me a daughter. No one ever hugged me. No one has ever kissed me … ”and“ When a little girl feels lost and lonely, feels that she is not needed by anyone, she can’t forget this all her life. ” In psychology, there is such a thing as “Marilyn Monroe syndrome” – a destructive psychological complex, as a result of attention deficit, care and love in childhood.

In August 1946, she received an offer to conclude a contract at the Twentieth Century Fox film studio, where she was taken as a statistician.

Surname Monroe belonged to her grandmother. By the end of 1951, she received 2-3 thousand letters from fans per week. In March 1954, Marilyn Monroe received the award “The Most Popular Actress” (which was true). In January 1955, Marilyn announced the creation of her own corporation, Marilyn Monroe Production, in which she was president and owner of a controlling stake.

“The greatest blonde of all time” was born brown haired. She became blonde about the same time when she changed her name to a pseudonym. And besides, she did several plastic surgeries. Surgeons fixed her nose and reshaped her chin. They also solved the problem with the hair that grew on her triangular protrusion on her forehead. Since childhood, her favorite actress was Gene Harlow – a Hollywood star of the 30s, who died at 26 years old. This passion largely determined the reincarnation of Marilyn into a blonde and influenced the choice of life.

At the beginning of her career, when things were not going well, Marilyn Monroe posed nude for a series of calendars. She was paid $ 50 per hour for this job. At that time, photos of nude models were equated with pornography, and such an occupation was considered illegal for film actresses. However, for Marilyn Monroe, who was then barely making ends meet, this $ 50 was a lot of money. When Marilyn Monroe became famous, a scandal erupted when someone saw the similarity between a girl on the calendar and a famous actress. And in December 1953, Hugh Hefner purchased a snapshot from this calendar for $ 500, he decorated the first issue of his new Playboy magazine.

Marilyn Monroe did not advertise her “interesting” position. The fact is – decades later told Frida Hull, – that this pregnancy was already the fourth. Shortly after Frida Hull took her photos, Marilyn Monroe went to the hospital, and ten days later she went out of there – already alone. “This miscarriage became her fourth. Marilyn Monroe suffered from endometriosis and did everything possible to get pregnant and keep the child, ”said Hull’s close friend  Tony Michaels. It was he who in 2016 bought “pregnant” pictures at a Hollywood auction, after 83-year-old Frida passed away.

Earlier, in 1957, Marilyn Monroe had already managed to get pregnant from Miller, and also literally beamed with happiness, imagining how she would hold her adorable baby in her arms. But the pregnancy was ectopic. A few weeks later, the actress began to experience severe pain, at some point she lost consciousness and went to the hospital. On August 1, 1957, she was operated on: the doctors were forced to terminate the pregnancy in order to save Marilyn’s life. The loss of a child was such a heavy blow for her that she fell into a protracted depression, which she tried to relieve with potent drugs and alcohol. “Rattling Mix” played a cruel joke: the actress fell into a coma, and the doctors again had to pull her out of the dead.

Two years later, during the shooting of the picture “Some like it hotter,”  Marilyn Monroe became pregnant again. And again, fate deceived her: the pregnancy ended in miscarriage. The reason could be too hard work on the film.

There are rumors about her early child, a son whom she allegedly gave birth to in her youth, and who was sent to an orphanage. “Children, especially girls, should always be told that they are beautiful and that everyone loves them,” she said. “If I have a daughter, I will always tell her that she is beautiful, I will comb her hair to shine, and I will not leave her alone for a minute.” The rumor about her son left in a shelter spawned in the US such a thing as “children of Marilyn Monroe”, like “children of Lieutenant Schmidt”. However, in January 2000, a man appeared in New York who identified himself as Joseph F. Kennedy. He stated that he was none other than the son of Marilyn and the late US President John F. Kennedy, with whom, as we know, Monroe had an affair.

By the way, it was a big scandal those times according Marilyn Monroe and Kennedy. They met long before his presidency. But their romance began only a year later, when Monroe was already divorced. Dating usually took place in actress’s New York apartment, the presidential suite of various hotels, or in the beach house of Peter Lawford, a relative of Kennedy. The same Lawford sometimes brought Marilyn to a meeting with President John F. Kennedy. There is evidence that famous lovers indulged in secret pleasures even aboard the “Air Force 1” (aircraft of the President of the United States)!

There are many versions explaining the reason for their separation. The most convincing is the following. Robert Kennedy declared war on the alliance of mafia and trade unions. The key figure in this alliance was Jimmy Hoff, the leader of the motor transport union. Hoff began collecting dirt on the Kennedy clan. Found out about the love affair of the president with the actress, Jimmy ordered to install “bugs” in the house of Marilyn Monroe. Information about this fell into the hands of Robert Kennedy. He told everything to his brother. And John decided it was time to finish the game. The sad news of the famous mistress took … Robert. Marilyn Monroe first made a fit, trying to contact the president by phone. And it all ended with the fact that the actress went to bed with his brother who deceived her loved one. Most likely, she did it out of revenge.

Robert himself learned what it is to be Marilyn Monroe’s lover! Any attempt to stop meeting her provoked a strong reaction from a Hollywood star. She called him into the office, swore with a secretary who refused to connect Marilyn with her boss. Robert never answered such calls … And on August 5, 1962, Marilyn Monroe was found dead in her house. Until now, many Americans are convinced that this was a murder. There are five versions of the cause of her death: murder committed by special services on the orders of the Kennedy brothers in order to avoid publicity of their sexual relationships; mob killings; drug overdose; suicide; the tragic mistake of the psychoanalyst actress Ralph Greenson, who prescribed the patient to take chloral hydrate shortly after her taking Nembutal. What was the true reason – is still unknown.

There is a hypothesis that in her famous leather-bound diary Marilyn Monroe documented the details of her intimate relationship with the Kennedy brothers and other lovers, in particular, wrote down what they said in bed. Thus, the diary represented a serious compromising evidence. According to an eyewitness, stylist Marilyn Monroe, who accompanied her on trips, on the day of her death the actress visited the house of Frank Sinatra, with whom she also had a short-term affair. There the mafiosi who collaborated with the CIA – Sam Jankana met her. He urged Monroe to give the diary. But she did not agree, and she was eliminated for fear of blackmail or publicity. And the diary completely disappeared from her home.

The funeral of the actress was engaged in her ex-husband Joe Di Maggio. He ordered that none of the representatives of the Kennedy clan was close to the funeral ceremony. The famous athlete survived much of Marilyn Monroe. He died in 1998. Those who were with him in the last moments say that Joe exhaled with relief: “Thank God! Now I can connect with Marilyn forever! ”

Despite the depression and addictions, Marilyn Monroe always looked flawless in public, but she was often late. “It is better to be late, but to come in full form. Anyway, what I love is not to rush . Our time is too fussy and hectic. And beauty and perfection require time and leisure. I have one desire – to constantly strive for excellence. ” Anyway, she remains one of the most legendary woman all over the world.
