Beneath the makeup and behind the smile I am just a girl who wishes for the world.

Marilyn Monroe

May 31, 1926 – August 3, 1962
American actress, model, and singer. Famous for playing comedic "blonde bombshell" characters, she became one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1950s and early 1960s and was emblematic of the era's changing attitudes towards sexuality. More than half a century later, she continues to be a major popular culture icon.
