Film fans tend to think of Marilyn Monroe as this vaulted blonde bombshell, a kind of cinematic goddess who existed on another plane altogether. In reality Monroe was a kind, intelligent, and hardworking woman who wasn’t anything like the character she portrayed in so many films.

Monroe didn’t just enjoy literature, she found books to be "a refuge and a companion,” and once she started making money she purchased some 400 volumes of pricey first editions, who can blame her?

She was constantly reading, both on set and off, which just goes to show that you can’t judge a book by its cover, pun intended.

Anyone who grew up in the ‘80s remembers The Legend of Billie Jean, the star of a young woman who stands up for what’s right along with a cadre of miscreant sidekicks. The film is a classic Gen X story of rebellion, and it still holds up even if it’s a little cheesy.

Weirdly enough, two of the film’s stars - Helen Slater and Christian Slater - aren’t related, they just have the same last name.

Even if you didn’t attempt to mimic the wild fashion in this movie, the lesson of being yourself and standing up for what’s right definitely stuck with you. That’s just what happens when you watch an important movie at a young age.
