17 Interesting Facts About Marilyn Monroe

She didn't come from the best of families, which makes it all the more impressive that she rose to this fame. I hope you enjoy reading these facts as much as I enjoyed learning about this complex woman.

1. Her maiden name was Norma Jean Mortenson.

2. Her father was absent all her life.

3. Her grandmother was admitted to a mental health hospital on August 4, 1927. Marilyn died 35 years and a day later, on August 5th.

The fear of going insane, like her grandmother and mother were/would haunt her all her life.

4. She stuttered occasionally all of her life.

5. She was sent to an orphanage when she was nine years old.

The reason she was sent to an orphanage was that her mother was hospitalized for mental health problems. Her mother's problems were so severe that she had to spend the rest of her life in a mental health facility.

6. She married her first husband, Jim Dougherty when she was only sixteen years old. The marriage lasted four years.

7. This is how the stage name Marilyn Monroe came about ...

The stage name Marilyn Monroe was developed with the help of Ben Lyon, head of the youth department at Fox Studios.

The name Marilyn was chosen because he said to her: "You are a Marilyn to me" - it can be that simple sometimes. Then she asked if she could use her grandmother's last name, Monroe. And so the name finally came about: Marilyn Monroe.

8. She had small plastic surgery performed.

In 1950 she had a minor nose job, an operation that lifted her nose and placed some cartilage in her jaw to strengthen her jawline.

9. She first attempted suicide (known as first attempt) after Johnny Hyde died in December 1950. 

Johnny Hyde was a super agent whom she saw romantically and who was also her agent. She credited him all her life for building her career and paving her path to fame.

Hyde loved Marilyn so much that he wanted to marry her after a heart attack so that she would be financially secure after his death. She declined because she was not "in love" with him. (150)

10. She was notorious for always being late.

11. Often had her own special schedule for many films.

Once she was successful her behavior became very erratic and when she would show up for work wasn't always certain. So often everyone who worked with her had to wait for her.

The directors she worked with never knew when or even if she was going to show up, so they would make a movie around her. One of the main reasons she was always late was because of her unstable emotional state.

Likewise, she often wanted to shoot twenty to thirty shots of the same scene ...

12. She became pregnant when she was married to Arthur Miller and lost the baby six weeks after the pregnancy ...
