This sweet big print tee features a black and white graphic of Hollywood bombshell, Marilyn Monroe. Born Norma Jeane Mortenson, Monroe is one of Hollywood's most tragic yet enthralling figures. She grew up in Los Angeles, California bouncing between foster homes and orphanages because her mother was committed to a hospital with a diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia. Monroe would later struggle with her own mental health issues, but she cited her suffering as her inspiration for becoming an actress.
Monroe began modeling as a pin-up girl while working in a factory during WWII. Shortly after, she appeared in some films in minor roles until 1950 when she signed a new contract with Fox and began appearing in films like Monkey Business and Clash by Night. Around this time is when the public learned of her earlier, nude photo shoots but these photos only bolstered her career and solidified her status as a sex symbol and an emblem of the sexual revolution. Monroe would go on to win a Golden Globe for Best Actress for her role in Some Like It Hot and receive critical acclaim for her performances in Bus Stop and The Prince and the Showgirl.
Her on screen success was contrasted by her tumultuous personal life. She was exploited greatly due to her fame and the media had a habit of criticizing her personal affairs. Although Monroe died young, at only 36 years old, she is remembered as one of the most iconic American pop culture figures of all time. She's been named the sixth greatest female screen legend in American history and the Smithsonian included her in its list of 100 Most Significant Americans of All Time.
Fits like a modern unisex adult large.
