Which is NOT a nickname given to Marilyn Monroe?
Marilyn Monroe is one of the biggest Hollywood stars of the 50s and 60s. Her onscreen portrayals are often flirtatious and provocative, which made her appealing to some and controversial to others.
She was often called the “dumb blonde” for the types of roles she played in her movies. The nickname follows the stereotype that attractive women are not so intelligent (however, Monroe was actually smart in real life).
She was also nicknamed “the girl with the horizontal walk” for the way she notoriously swings her hips while walking.
And in 1952, gossip columnist Florabel Muir named her the “it girl” of the year.
