Marilyn Monroe

You would think Marilyn Monroe was the original blonde bombshell, but in her early years, the actress endured a rough childhood, going through several foster homes. Monroe’s mother, Gladys Baker, suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and, according to Biography.com, dropped her off with her first foster family, the Boldenders, when she was just two weeks old.
