Marilyn Monroe is one of the most iconic celebrities of all time. From the infamous Birthday song she sang to JFK, to that time her dress blew up, there seems to be little that the public don’t know about the blond bombshell. Until now, that is. It turns out, the Hollywood actress was a lot more mysterious than people have her credit for and even years after her death, we’re just scratching the surface of what she was all about.
She Was Paid Badly
Despite her international status, Marilyn Monroe was paid relatively poorly in comparison to other actresses of her time. Her co-star, Jane Russell, was paid around 10 times more than she was for Gentleman Prefer Blondes. It’s all in the fine print.
