Marilyn Monroe( Associated Press / December 9, 2012 )
Monroe crammed a lot of living into her 36 years -- three husbands, numerous affairs and 30 films -- all while dealing with depression and a self-destructive personality. In her 30s, she grew more dependent on drugs and alcohol. In the spring of 1962, she was dropped from the production of "Something's Got to Give" for chronic lateness. Four months later, her housekeeper found her dead in her Brentwood home of a drug overdose, later ruled a suicide.
