Marilyn Monroe's Weight

140 lbs

Marilyn Monroe stands 5 feet and 5 inches tall and weighs 140 pounds. Born in Los Angeles, California, Marilyn Monroe, also known as Norma Jeane Mortenson, had a very difficult childhood and was shuttled from foster home to foster home until her late teens, when she convinced her older boyfriend to marry her so that she would not have to go back into foster care when her guardians chose to move away without her. She was photographed while working in a munitions factory and at the urging of the photographer, she approached The Blue Book Modeling Agency, which quickly signed her. She became one of their most popular models, and in the late 1940s, Hollywood came knocking. She signed with 20th Century Fox and made her debut in the film “The Shocking Miss Pilgrim” in 1947. She signed with Columbia Pictures in 1948 and her performances in such films as “The Asphalt Jungle” and “All About Eve” caught the attention of the public and Hollywood insiders. She resigned with 20th Century Fox and went on to appear in a string of hit films. She passed away due to a drug overdose in 1962 at the age of 36.
