She starred in thirty major films and was awarded the Golden Globe for “Female World Film Favorite.” She started her own production company and was voted “2nd Greatest Movie Star” of all time by Premiere Magazine. She was chosen by Empire Magazine as one of the “100 Sexiest Stars in Film History.”
This blonde bombshell was beautiful, talented, successful, and seemed to have everything a woman could dream of, except for one thing – happiness.

Sadly, this famous superstar committed suicide on August 5, 1962. She was only 36 years old. Her makeup covered face, dyed blonde hair, and sparkling clothes only hid what she was feeling on the inside.
Depressed. Unloved. Alone.
This is the true story of American icon Marilyn Monroe.

As I’ve studied the life of this beautiful and famous woman, I can’t help but ask, “Why would a woman who had everything still commit suicide? Why wasn’t the fame, beauty, money, and guys enough?”
Sadly, not many people stop to ask these tough questions about Marilyn’s tragic life. Instead of questioning her fruitless quest for happiness, many of us follow right in her footsteps.
Like Marilyn, millions of women are chasing after happiness and satisfaction down the same dead end road. Without realizing it, many of us have bought into Hollywood’s lies about beauty, femininity, and identity.
In Girl Defined, which I wrote with my sister Bethany, we refer to these crafty lies as “counterfeit femininity.” As Christian women, many of us buy into the lies that to be worth anything we need to be pretty, smart, athletic, skinny, wealthy, or popular.
