Here we have a 17-year-old Norma Jeane before she became known as the legendary Marilyn Monroe. Her life contrasted in so many ways…. she was rich and successful yet co-dependent (on the emotional front). She was highly insecure even though she was a sex and beauty icon. Despite her seemingly outgoing nature, she was so shy growing up that she developed a stutter. She flaunted for cameras, but behind the scenes, she remained shy and deeply insecure her whole life. She never managed to fully get rid of her stutter either. Dictation lessons only helped her mask it for work.
