Marilyn Monroe Net Worth $50 Million
Declared one of the sexiest women of all times, Marilyn Monroe made quite a history in the 50’s and the 60’s. Born in a broken family, Norma Jeane Mortenson spend most of her childhood moving from one foster home to another. After a culminating success on the modeling scene, Norma Jeane becomes Marilyn Monroe and started her ascendant in films and television. The early years of her career were marked by small roles in various films.
Both the audience and the critics liked the image of dumb blonde Marilyn so her rating grew more and more in the years to come. However, for Marilyn, success had a bitter taste. The last years of Marilyn were marked by many scandals and illnesses, by a promiscuous life and the suspicion of affairs with important political persons of those times. Three failed marriages and three lost pregnancies scarred Monroe’s personal life.
The final strike was given by the presumed relationship with John F. Kennedy, at that time the President of the United States. Depressed and abandoned, Monroe died prematurely at the age of 36 from an overdose of barbiturate. Whether Marilyn Monroe was a talented actress or not, it’s hard to say and critics are still debating on that…however, one thing is sure: she was one of the most desired women of her time! Fame was an exciting adventure for the beautiful blonde, an adventure that did not have a happy ending. And if success didn’t bring her happiness it definitely brought her a lot of money.
Actually, the legacy of Marilyn Monroe continues to make money today. The Marilyn Monroe LLC. under the management of Anna Strasberg was sold to the Authentic Brands Group in 2010 for the sum of $50 million. One of the most iconic female presences of all times, Marilyn Monroe continues to draw attention today just as she did years ago.
