the constructed image : marilyn monroe



Name: Marilyn Monroe


-A sex symbol becomes a thing. I just hate to be a thing.

-Being a sex symbol is a heavy load to carry, especially when one is tired, hurt and bewildered.

-Dreaming about being an actress, is more exciting then being one.

-Hollywood is a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul.

-I don't know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot.

-I don't mind living in a man's world as long as I can be a woman in it.

-I am not interested in money. I just want to be wonderful.

-Marriage is my main career from now on.

3. butter (is yellow a representation of blonde and the way people need it to butter her up) (wealth and the movie "Gentleman Prefer Blondes"
