Happy 85th, Marilyn Monroe!

Had she lived, Marilyn Monroe would have been 85 today. The film icon died in 1962 at the age of 36, but her birthday is worth celebrating just the same.

Here at FishbowlLA — which we’re certain Marilyn would have read had she lived — we’re dedicating a portion of today’s coverage to the fabled actress.

Forty-nine years after her death, Marilyn is still an important figure in Hollywood. Not just for her legendary beauty and talent, but for the way her tragic downfall exposed the ugliness of the Hollywood system. She represents both the best and worst of the entertainment industry, and we’ll be obsessing over her all day. Join us!
