She was married when she was sixteen and her modelling career began while she was working in a factory in 1944. Monore met a photographer David Coroner there and this led to her exposure to the acting world as she signed two film contracts with Twentieth Century Fox and Columbia Pictures that were two big film banners of that era. It is believed that talent can never remain hidden from the world and thus after that period when she appeared in minor roles, she signed a fresh contract with Twentieth Century Fox in 1951. By this time she had gained enough popularity and worked in two epic comic films named Monkey Business and As Young As You Feel. She faced a controversy when it was uncovered that she did a nude photo shoot but this controversy increased her popularity and her passion about films.

With great acting and business skills she was one of the richest Hollywood celebrities during 1953 as she was acting in Noir Nigara which showed her sexy side of her, and two more comedy films named Gentlemen Prefer Blondes directed by Howard Hawks and How to Marry a Millionaire directed by Jean Negulesco with lead roles in all the movies.

While she was struggling to get her contract changed, she didn't lose her hope and founded her own production company with the name of Marilyn Monore Productions (MMP), which was a big step being woman. In order to compete with others and boost up her acting skills, she started with method acting classes at Actors Studio. Watching this young lady working harder, Twentieth Century Fox gave Monore a new contract which gave her what she wanted a higher pay and of course more control. All her hard work was in front of everyone when she gave a marvelous performance in Bus Stop which released in 1956. MMP also released its first production The Prince and The Showgirl in 1957 with Marilyn in lead. In 1959, she won Golden Globe for her movie Some Like it Hot for best actor female. As of records, her last film was The Misfits which released in 1961. Unlike her nude photo shoot case, her complicated and rough private life generated much more controversy. She was a drug addict which led to depression and anxiety. Her love life was no less than a tragedy as her two marriages, one with baseball player Joe DiMaggio and the second one with a play writer Arthur Miller ended up with divorce. Her death as reported by local police was due to an overdose of barbiturates and she was found nude in her bed. Marilyn Monroe's increased popularity is attached to her personal life controversies.
