Today, June 1st, would have been this quotable screen darling's 90th birthday. Born Norma Jean Mortensen in 1926, she became Marilyn Monroe, the actress famous for playing ditsy blondes with a light shining behind her eyes that let the world know she was anything but. She's the one who taught us that "if they can't handle you at your worst, they sure as hell don't deserve you at your best" and looked damn good while doing it. Immortalized by her wit even above her beautiful face and legendary curves, she's the lady that changed the game. Click through to celebrate her memory (beyond that bizarre Snapchat filter) with these rare photos of the fiercely clever starlet.
