エンジョイシンプルイングリッシュ 8/18
マリリン・モンロー/Marilyn Monroe

A lot of people know the picture of Marilyn Monroe in the street with the wind blowing her dress.

People may think she was only famous because she was beautiful.

But she was more than that.

 

She died almost six years ago.

But people are still writing books and making movies about her.

So why is she so special?

 

Monroe was born as Norma Jeane Mortenson in 1926.

Her mother was often sick and she did not know her father.

 

Monroe lived with different families and orphanages, homes for children with no parents. 

When she was 16 Monroe married her first husband.

Soon her husband went to fight in the war.

So Monroe started to work as a model.

 

At the beginning of her carrier, she was still Norma Jeane with brown hair.

Little by little she got more work.

People noticed her beauty and wanted her to be a pin-up model.

(pin-up:写真家のモデルとして働く非常に美しい女性)

Around this time, Norma Jeane changed her brown hair to blond.

 

After World War Ⅱ ended, Monroe divorced her first husband and decided to become an actress.   

She took the name, Marilyn Monroe and started to create a public image that went with her new name.

 

At first, she did not get good roles and had to work as a new model.

After about 5 years, she began to get small roles in movies.

And in 1953, she played the main character for the first time in the movie, ‘Niagara’.

It was a hit and her next movie’s ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’, her to a millionaire, and ‘Seven Year Itch’ made her a star.

 

She became a success by changing from plain Norma Jeane into glamorous Marilyn Monroe.

But the studios always gave her the role of a beautiful woman who was not very smart.

Monroe did not like this.

So she worked hard to become a better actress.

 

She even started her own movie company so she could control her roles.

Back then, there are only a few big movie companies.

They made all the movies and they decided who did each role.

Monroe tried to change the situation.

 

Monroe worked hard but her personal life was not always happy.

Her marriages were short and she had problems with drugs.

This made working difficult.

 

In 1962, she was found dead in her home.

She was only 36 years old.

Monroe died very young but she helped change Hollywood.

Many actors make their own companies today.

But no stars did that before Monroe.

 

Now because of her, actors can say ‘I don’t want that role.’ or ‘Let’s change the script.’

 

Marilyn Monroe’s life was short.

But she was successful and she made it easier for all actors to work in Hollywood.
