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.

She represents both the best and worst of the entertainment industry, and we’ll be obsessing over her all day. Join us!
