'Cos she's not very tough,\\
She should have been made of iron or steel,\\
But she was only made of flesh and blood."

* OperaGloves: The "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" production number in ''Film/GentlemenPreferBlondes'' is, along with Rita Hayworth's turn in ''Film/{{Gilda}}'', probably the most famous example of this trope in live-action film.

She was briefly married to UsefulNotes/{{Baseball}} star Joe [=DiMaggio=] and later to playwright Arthur Miller. Allegedly, she had an affair with UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy. Her singing "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" in a slinky dress in 1962 is commonly referenced/parodied. She was also romantic penpals with Portuguese dictator UsefulNotes/AntonioDeOliveiraSalazar.

Before then, she took up a successful modeling career after having dyed her brunette hair to blonde. She got some small acting jobs, but nothing big, although she did agree to change her name, which included taking on her mother's surname. At one point she posed nude for photos when she had no other jobs. These photos would end up on a calendar, and eventually the first issue of ''Magazine/{{Playboy}}''. Marilyn headed off a scandal by admitting she posed, [[IWasYoungAndNeededTheMoney because she had no other way to pay her bills]].

* MethodActing: In 1955, she started attending Lee Strasberg's Actor's Studio and annoyed several directors with her personally selected acting coach appearing on set and directing her instead of the film-makers. Several commentators note that this stemmed from her self-imposed insecurity of wanting to break from her stereotypical "dumb blonde" image but they also state that her underrated talent as a "natural actress" was hampered by the Method training. Her husband Arthur Miller in an interview with Peter Bogdanovich [[note]]Who The Hell's In It[[/note]] blamed the Method for her addiction to sleeping pills and eventual death.
