The best of Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monroe is one of the most iconic actresses of all time – her signature glamour and platinum blonde hair made her a sensation.
From humble beginnings, she grew up to be one of the most famous women in the world. Born in Los Angeles, Monroe spent most of her childhood in orphanages and foster homes.
While working in a factory during the Second World War, she was discovered by a photographer who scouted her to model for pin up images.
From there, she started appearing in films, before signing a major movie deal with Fox picture that led to her becoming one of the most popular stars in Hollywood.
In honour of the famous actress, today we’re looking back at some of her most iconic movie roles.
