Iconic Hollywood star Marilyn Monroe was a big mystery, not just for her team, which she was working with, but for her closest friends as well. It is not such a big surprise when we look at her fame. It was so huge, that almost no one would take it and that was the reason why she left so early. She was beautiful, talented, successful and her life was full of events, scandals, famous people, love and also disappointment. We have prepared 5 facts about Marilyn, which you did not ever think that could be true.

1. She had never been nominated for an Oscar.

Even if she was that successful, she has never got this academic award. It is not such a big deal, since she has got a three Golden Globes out of four nominations.

2. She had a problem with memorizing a lines.

Everybody has a weakness and the one she had was that she had had often problem with memorizing of her lines and most of professionals considered this as a result of her stress in front of the camera.

3. She had a quite low salary.

If we compare Marilynˈs salary with her actress colleagues, we find out that her salary was quite low. For example in movie Gentlemen prefer blondes she worked with Jane Russel, who had ten times higher salary than Marylin.
