10. Marilyn Monroe – The Original Bombshell
Norma Jean Mortenson, better known as Marilyn Monroe, was a blonde bombshell. The actress and singer exploded as a pin-up girl and sex symbol for the entire world. Before she sang “Happy Birthday” to President Kennedy, Monroe, at the tender age of 20, landed a modeling contract with Blue Book Modeling Agency. From modeling, Monroe moved on to acting. But Monroe didn’t break through right away and she posed nude for photographer Tom Kelley in 1949 for just $50.
With the eyes of directors and producers upon her, it was reported that Monroe used to “hang out” with the men of power in the entertainment business for $500 a day. In some of the Monroe biographies written, numerous claims have been made that Monroe admitted to going on dates with men in order to get a good meal or extra money to pay the rent.
