Fact of the Day: Norma Jeane

During World War II, Marilyn Monroe worked in a factory that made planes for the war effort while she still had her birth name (though married under the name of Dougherty) Norma Jeane Mortenson. It was after meeting a photographer there that her modeling career began which later got her roles in movies that made her even more famous.
