Today would be the 91st birthday of one of my favorite actresses, Marilyn Monroe. To me, she is beyond a sex symbol. She is the very picture of vulnerability. She can make you feel her distress in dramas such as Don’t Bother to Knock and The Misfits. She will also make you giggle and smile with her effervescence in comedies such as The Seven Year Itch (one of my all time favorite movies) and Some Like It Hot (another one of my favorites). Her humanity shined through no matter what role she appeared in.
On this day, I would like to celebrate the woman who continues to fascinate over 50 years after her untimely death. So, put on your best lipstick and toast Marilyn, one of the most iconic women ever.
