“I have feelings too. I am still human. All I want is to be loved, for myself and for my talent.” – Marilyn Monroe
I wasn’t really interested in the life of Marilyn Monroe until yesterday when I saw the film, My Week with Marilyn. I know that Marilyn Monroe is one of the famous icons in international entertainment but I didn’t really know much about her. I’ve heard that the cause of her death was suicide. I didn’t know about the controversies surrounding her death, and neither about the difficult life she had. I was surprised to see in the movie a Marilyn who was different from the one that I’ve always had in my head. Watching the movie made me very curious about her that I spent long hours online last night, reading about her life. Knowing more about Marilyn has made me admire and respect her not only as an actress nor as a famous icon, but also for being who she is behind the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. It makes me sad thinking about how her life ended but I hope she has found the true love and happiness that she deserves wherever she is right now. Time may pass but Marilyn Monroe will always be remembered and will serve as an inspiration to many.
