Pictured here is a young Marilyn Monroe, 17-years-old and really coming into her own. Despite her seemingly overt outgoing nature as a woman, she was actually very shy as a child and that didn't change just because she became famous. She was such a nervous child that she even developed a stutter.

Marilyn suffered from depression and insecurities her whole life. The studio assigned dictation and singing coaches to her and with that training, she was able to gain control and mask her vocal imperfections while performing but it never fully went away.

Marilyn Monroe had a deep attachment to her Aunt Ana. According to her, Ana was the first person she ever truly felt loved and accepted by. Needless to say, she took her death in 1948 rather hard, but her husband at the time, Joe DiMaggio, made arrangements to ensure Marilyn would be buried in the same cemetery when she passed away.
