She was Hollywood's ultimate pin-up girl. She was a blonde bombshell whose beauty has remained superior and elusive. Of course, there's also an enigma surrounding her, especially due to her untimely and mysterious death at the young age of 36.
From her affairs with American presidents and numerous marriages to her vices, her life was always an open book and her works and images have rendered her immortal. But nothing has made a more resounding impact as her intelligent, yet often, quirky quotes. They proved that she was certainly not a dumb blonde, but rather a sensitive, intelligent and deep woman who had many, many layers. The true definition of a humanized onion, Marilyn may have died 50 years ago but we're still peeling her layers off today!
So, without further ado, here are 10 of her most wonderful quotes:
On Stereotypes: "It takes a smart brunette to play a dumb blonde."
On Women: "If you can make a girl laugh, you can make her do anything."
On Rules: "If I'd observed all the rules, I'd never have got anywhere."
On Being Wise: "A wise girl kisses but doesn't love, listens but doesn't believe, and leaves before she is left."
On Her Different Sides: "I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times, hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."
On Contradictions: "Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring."
On Life: "I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes, good things fall apart so better things can fall together."
On Hollywood: "Hollywood's a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss, and fifty cents for your soul. I know, because I turned down the first offer often enough and held out for the fifty cents."
On Fame: "It stirs up envy, fame does. People feel fame gives them some kind of privilege to walk up to you and say anything to you--and it won't hurt your feelings--like it's happening to your clothing."
On Herself: "I restore myself when I'm alone. A career is born in public--talent in privacy."
