Marilyn Monroe is hailed as one of the most beautiful women who ever graced the big screen. She was a sex symbol in her time and continues to be in the present age. Many actresses and models seek to follow in her footsteps.
There has been speculation over the years as to whether she ever had any work done to enhance her beauty. Many critics are comparing photos of the star in her early years with those of her later years to determine whether her timeless beauty was due to the knife. However, medical records from the star’s plastic surgeon have been released that prove she had work done to enhance her features.
The story of Marilyn Monroe plastic surgery began in the 1950s when she approached surgeon John Pangman to have work done on what she thought was a flat chin. Dr. Pangman performed a cartilage graft on Monroe that would help catapult her career.
Other procedures done to the star however, still remain nothing but rumors that can’t really be proven as there are no records to the same. Monroe’s friend, Rosemary Exckersley, who was married to renowned Hollywood surgeon Franklin Ashley claims that Monroe’s breasts were infected shortly before her death. She believed it was the result of liquid silicone injections that she had had. Monroe had asked Dr. Ashley to do something about them but he turned her down because it would have been nearly impossible to remove the free silicone after it had been injected.
Monroe’s marriage to Arthur Miller was long disputed. However, the recent release of her medical records from her plastic surgeon confirms the five year marriage. Monroe is registered under the name Marilyn Miller. This is enough to acknowledge her marriage to the playwright.
Monroe’s looks won her more than several roles on the big screen. She became the first sex symbol of Hollywood and continues to be today. With her lofty status, the actress was rumored to have had various affairs with notable people in the film industry and politics.
She was rumored to have been in love with President Kennedy. Her relationship with the president has never been confirmed. However, the switchboard at the White House noted that there were several calls made to the White House from Monroe in 1962.
When her alleged affair with the President ended, she turned to his brother, Robert Kennedy. He is reported to have visited her home in Los Angeles on the day she died.
Marilyn Monroe’s decision to have work done on her chin was probably one of the wisest decisions she made. It catapulted her career that ensured that she would live in luxury for the rest of her life. At the time of her death, Marilyn Monroe net worth was just over $27 million.
In life, Marilyn was poorly paid. In fact, Jane Russell received 10 times as much in salary when they co-starred on the film ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’.
Her net worth therefore was probably largely a result of the relationships she had as well as live shows and appearances she made. She was married three times, with each marriage ending in divorce. The first marriage was to James Dougherty and then to Joe DiMaggio. Her last marriage was to Arthur Miller. It lasted for five years. She suffered an ectopic pregnancy and two miscarriages during her marriages.
Monroe’s network has increased posthumously over the years to about $27 000 000. Her vacation home alone sold for $14.3 million in 2013. The mansion in which she often met with Jack Kenney is now worth $12 million.
