A quote from Marilyn Monroe about wanting to become an actress

By

“When I was five I think, that’s when I started wanting to be an actress. I loved to play. I didn’t like the world around me because it was kind of grim, but I loved to play house. It was like you could make your own boundaries… When I heard that this was acting, I said that’s what I want to be.”

– Marilyn Monroe
