Marilyn Monroe

One of the best-known sex-symbols ever, Marilyn Monroe was laid to rest in a simple crypt at Westwood Village Memorial Park in Los Angeles after her untimely death at age 36. Fifty years later, adoring fans still visit her crypt, often kissing and touching her memorial so much so that it has become darker than those surrounding it.

The model and actress remains a pop icon today, widely recognized for her voluptuous curves and platinum blond hair. Monroe's vixen-like qualities captivated men, even after her death. Ex-husband Joe DiMaggio, who never remarried after their 274-day marriage, reportedly had roses sent to her crypt weekly for 20 years until he died.
