Gerçek adı Norma Jean olan Marilyn Monroe, 1 Haziran 1926'da Los Angeles, California'da doğdu. Babası Edward Mortensen, annesini Norma doğmadan önce bırakıp gitmişti. Açlık ve sefalet içinde geçen çocukluk yılları, annesi Gladys Baker'ın ağır bir sinir nöbeti geçirip hastaneye kaldırılması ile daha da karardı. Norma'nın yetimhanedeki yaşamı işte bu talihsiz olayla başladı. 8 yaşında cinsel tacize uğrayan Norma Jean, bir tanıdıklarının yanında kalırken zaman içinde istenmeyen misafir durumuna düştü ve 16 yaşında hayatının en zor kararını verdi. Yetimhaneye dönmeyecek ve fabrikada işçi olarak çalışan Jim Dougherty ile evlenecekti. 1942 Haziran'ında Jim ile evlenen Norma'nın evliliği uzun sürmedi ve 1946 Eylül'ünde bitti.
Burbank'ta bir fabrikada çalışırken şans eseri fotoğrafları çekildi ve modelliğe başladı. Ünlü film yapımcısı Howard Hughes tarafından keşfedildi ve adı Marilyn Monroe olarak değiştirildi. İlk başlarda küçük rollerde, sessiz sakin sarışın bir kız olarak kendini gösteren Marilyn, "Love Happy" (1949) ve "All About Eve" (1950) filmlerinden sonra başarıyı yakaldı. Doğallığına, cazibesini ve dişiliğini de ekleyerek, sessiz sakin sarışın kız "Sarışın Bomba" olarak anılan bir idole dönüştü. 1950 yılında tanıştığı profesyonel beyzbol oyuncusu Joe Di Maggio ile 1954 Haziran'ında dünya evine girdi.
"Niagara", "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes", "How to Marry A Millionaire" adlı filmlerle ününe ün katan Marilyn, herşeyin doğal ve içten olması gerektiğini savunurdu. Belkide bu düşüncesi sayesinde film yapımcılarının ve fotoğrafçıların rüyası haline geldi. 1954 yılının Ekim ayında ikinci eşinden de ayrılan Marilyn'in evliliğini bitiren en büyük etkenin, şöhreti ve sarışın seksi bomba imajı olduğu söylendi.
1956 yılı ise Marilyn için çok hızlı geçti. Kendi firması olan Marilyn Monroe Productions'ı da bu yıl içinde kuran seksi yıldız, 29 Haziran'da da bir oyun yazarı olan Arthur Miller ile üçüncü evliliğini yaptı. Kariyerini kötü yönde etkileyen, uyuşturucu ve alkol bağımlılığı da bu dönemde başladı. Psikolojik problemler içinde kendini unutan Marliyn Monroe, 21 Haziran 1961 yılında üçüncü eşinden de ayrıldı.
Ne var ki 5 Ağustos 1962 yılında Brentwood'daki evinde ölü bulunan ünlü yıldız, aşırı dozda uyku ilacı alarak intihar etmişti. Olayın bir intihar değil cinayet olduğu iddiaları ortaya atılmış, sebep olarakta Kennedy ile olan birlikteliği öne sürülmüştü. Marilyn, 8 Ağustos 1962'de California'da defnedildi.
20.yy'ın seksi bombası olarak kabul edilen Marilyn Monroe, yarım kalan filmi "Something's Gotto Give" i hiçbir zaman bitiremedi. Solak olduğu bilinen ünlü yıldızın vazgeçemediği ve yanından ayırmadığı tek şey "Chanel No:5" parfümüydü.
Ölümünden sonrada unutulmayan güzel yıldız, 1999 yılında People Magazine tarafından "Dünyanın En Seksi Kadını" seçildi. Yine 1999 yılında Playboy dergisi tarafından "20.yy'ın En Seksi Starı" seçilen Marilyn Monroe'nun sayısız filmi ve ödülü bulunmakta. Ayrıca Elton John'un "Candle in the Wind" adlı parçasını Marilyn'e itham ettiği bilinmektedir.
The clip slide hand between legs from Wild at Heart (1990) with Nicolas Cage, Laura Dern
I knew I had an important lesson to learn that day.
When she got to the top step, I stuck my hand between her legs.
Baby, what a bad boy you are!
Baby, what a bad boy you are!
That's just what she said.
I had a boner with a capital "O".
Anyway, I found her lying
in a room filled with guns and porno magazines.
So, I slid my hand between her legs again,
and she closed her thighs.
You're exciting me, honey.
Then what did she do?
Her face was half pushed into the pillow,
and I remember, she looked back over her shoulder at me and said:
"I won't suck you. Don't ask me to suck you. "
Poor baby, she doesn't know what she missed.
What color hair did she have?
but gentlemen prefer blondes.
Anyway, dig this:
She turns over,
peels off them orange pants,
spreads her legs real wide
and says to me: "Take a bite of peach. "
Jesus, honey, you more than sort of got what you come for.
Baby, you better run me back to the hotel.
You've got me hotter than Georgia asphalt.
Say no more, but go easy on me, sweetheart,
tomorrow we got a lot of driving to do.
Hotter than Georgia asphalt.
"I don't want to make money--- I just want to be wonderful."
June 1, 1926 - August 4, 1962
This is my tribute to Marilyn Monroe, who died 48 years ago today. She lived a great life, although it ended too soon. Even after all these years, she still serves as a role model for people all over the world. She definitely deserves a tribute, although this isn't much.
Anyway, I hope you guys like it! It took me unreasonably long. o__0

Throughout her career, Mansfield was compared by the media to the reigning sex symbol of the period, Marilyn Monroe. 20th Century Fox groomed her, as well as Sheree North, to substitute Monroe, their resident "blonde bombshell", while Universal Pictures launched Van Doren as their substitute. The studio launched Mansfield, their new bombshell, with a grand 40-day tour of England and Europe from September 25 to November 6, 1957. She adopted Monroe's vocal mannerisms instead of her original husky voice and Texan speech, performed in two plays that were based on Marilyn Monroe vehicles -- Bus Stop and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and her role in The Wayward Bus was strongly influenced by Monroe's character in Bus Stop.
Other studios also tried to find their own version of Monroe. Columbia Pictures tried it with Cleo Moore, Warner Bros. with Carroll Baker, Paramount Pictures with Anita Ekberg, and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer with Barbara Lang, while Diana Dors was dubbed as England's answer to Mansfield. Jacqueline Susann wrote, "When one studio has a Marilyn Monroe, every other studio is hiring Jayne Mansfield and Mamie Van Doren." The crowd of contenders also included Diana Dors, Sheree North, Kim Novak, Cleo Moore, Joi Lansing, Beverly Michaels, Barbara Nichols and Greta Thyssen, and even two brunettes -- Elizabeth Taylor and Jane Russell. Mamie Van Doren, Diana Dors and Kim Novak also acted in various productions of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. But, even when Mansfield's film roles were drying up, she was widely considered to be Monroe's primary rival, and she considered Mamie Van Doren as her professional nemesis. At one point, Monroe, Mansfield and Mamie came to be known as "The Three M's."
Because of her striking figure, newspapers in the 1950s routinely published her body measurements, which once led to evangelist Billy Graham exclaiming, "This country knows more about Jayne Mansfield's statistics than the Second Commandment." Mansfield claimed a 41-inch bust line and a 22-inch waist when she made her Broadway debut in 1955, though some scholars dispute those figures. She came to be known as "the Cleavage Queen" and "the Queen of Sex and Bosom." Mansfield's breasts fluctuated in size, it was said, from her pregnancies and nursing her five children. Her smallest measurement was 40D (102 cm), which was constant throughout the 1950s, and her largest was 46DD (117 cm), measured by the press in 1967. According to Playboy, her vital statistics were 40D-21-36 (102-53-91 cm) on her 5'6" (1.68 m) frame. According to her autopsy report, she was 5'8" (1.73 m).
It has been claimed that her bosom was a major force behind the development of the 1950s brassieres, including the "Whirlpool bra", Cuties, the "Shutter bra", the "Action bra", latex pads, cleavage-revealing designs and uplift outline. R. L. Rutsky and Bill Osgerby have claimed that it was Mansfield, along with Marilyn Monroe and Brigitte Bardot, who made the bikini popular. Drawing on the Freudian concept of fetishism, British science fiction writer and socio-cultural commentator J. G. Ballard commented that Mae West, Mansfield and Monroe's breasts "loomed across the horizon of popular consciousness." But, as the 1960s approached, according to Dave Kehr, the anatomy that had made her a star turned her into a joke. In this decade, the female body ideal shifted to appreciate the slim waif-like features popularized by supermodel Twiggy, actress Audrey Hepburn and other, demarcating the demise of the busty blonde bombshells.
Gentlemen prefer blondes, even in the world of gaming. That's why we've selected the five hottest video game blondes for your entertainment. Redheads and brunettes can go home cause it's time for the Top 5 Blondes in gaming!
5 . Elena Fisher - Uncharted series
Elena from the Uncharted series is one of few ladies in this top 5 who dresses with a reasonable degree of modesty. She proves that you don't need to have a ridiculously oversized chest or skimpy outfit to be considered hot. She absolutely nails the 'girl next door' look making her irresistible to men.
4. Tina Armstrong - Dead or Alive series
Tina is the direct opposite of Elena. This Southern girl from the Dead or Alive series is a stereotypical big breasted blonde who dresses slutty. She might not be the most subtle of beauties but that doesn't make her any less hot.
3. Cammy - Street Fighter series
Cammy's attraction lies less in her gold plated braid and more in just how extraordinarily high the leg is on that leotard. This cheeky woman is however one of the most famous blondes in gaming. Fighting her means you'll always win, even if you lose.
2. Nina Williams - Tekken series
Nina Williams is one of gaming's classic blondes. This Tekken fighter was sexy back when her hair was made out of about eight polygons. She can kick your ass without losing her cool which makes her very sexy indeed.
1. Samus Aran - Metroid series
Most people weren't even aware of Samus' gender until they beat the first Metroid. As the desire of horny fanboys increased, she began to shed the armor in more recent games. We love her with or with without armor however. Her sexiness comes from the fact that she's been hiding it from our eyes for so long.
