Born Norma Jeane Mortenson in June 1, 1926 to a mentally unstable mother and a missing father, she was placed with foster parents and lived there until she was seven. Her mother was bizarre and once tried to kidnap her from her foster parents by stuffing her in a bag. A few years later her mother bought a house and they lived together, but a few months later her mother had a mental breakdown (the first of many). She was then moved into foster care as a ward of the state and her later guardian Grace [=McKee=] was the one who got her into movies. However her guardian got married and she was sent to an orphanage, and then to a string of foster homes (it is unclear how many).

Added DiffLines:

* SpeechImpededLoveInterest: She had a [[SpeechImpediment stutter]]; though she managed to conquer it onstage (her famous throaty way of speaking was probably a way of concealing it), it resurfaced in her last movie.

Added DiffLines:

** Eli Wallach, her friend for several years, noted that she had this quality about her in her film roles: "As an actress she has lots of imitators - but only Marilyn survives. Why? Because people sense something real and helpless from her on that screen; they want to protect this girl and she makes them ashamed for having thought any dirty thoughts about her."

** JerkassWoobie: During the making of ''TheMisfits'', her marriage to Arthur Miller fell apart and her drug problems had made her ill-tempered and antisocial. Though considering everything she went through in her life, who can blame her?
