Although for many years Marilyn Monroe has been considered a sex symbol and a perfect woman in every way, the truth is that she was surrounded by details that made her more than a just pretty face. Few knew of their great intelligence, as well as of their measures that even today would be seen as "imperfect" by the most frivolous minds.
Do you know what is the best part? She was proud of her curves. These photos of the actress in swimsuit is the only proof and inspo you need:
For her conservative era, Marilyn did not feel sorry to be seen doing "exotic activities"
