20 Quotes From Marilyn Monroe That Will Liberate You As A Woman
"Imperfection is beauty."
Marilyn Monroe, born Norma Jeane Baker, overcame a difficult childhood and became one of the world's biggest stars. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Monroe spent most of her childhood in foster homes or an orphanage and married at the age of sixteen.
By 1953, Monroe was one of the most marketable stars in Hollywood. And still to this day she remains one of the most enduring sex symbols of the silver screen.
While her movie star image type casted her as a "dumb blonde," she was anything but dumb. Her iconic image was largely self created. Monroe, was a business woman. She understood the quickest and most profitable way to market herself.
However, her core strength was in the real inner beauty she possessed. Underneath her iconic image as a sex symbol, Marilyn Monroe, was a woman who embraced her imperfections. She acknowledged her faults. She encouraged other women to live their lives without concern of other people’s opinions.
She wanted to push other women to take advantage of every moment and live with no regrets. And most importantly, she took time to smile, no matter what was going on in her life.
