50+ Iconic Moments Of Marilyn Monroe’s Life

Hundreds of books have been written about Marilyn Monroe. She has been the subject of films, plays, operas, and songs and has influenced artists and entertainers such as Andy Warhol and Madonna. She was also interested in cooking. Several of her recipes were discovered after her death. She is one of the most photographed celebrities in history, and there are thousands of photographs of her in existence. Monroe had wanted a baby more than anything in the world, but that joy was denied her. She had three miscarriages, all of which played out in the public eye. Although she was typecast as a dumb blonde (a persona she hated), she was actually brilliant. She had an IQ of 168. Bygonely has compiled a list of the best moments of her life. Also, check out our previous list that gives a glimpse of Marilyn’s life.
