Jean HarlowConsidered one of the most beautiful women of her time, Jean Harlow was the original blond bombshell. If you were a US Marine in 1935, she was Hog of the Day. Marilyn Monroe once said "Jean Harlow was my idol."
The film "Platinum blond" made her the biggest sex symbol in America. She would put ice on her nipples just before shooting a scene in order to look sexier. Harlow was notorious for never wearing underwear and sleeping in the nude.
She was the Godmother to gangster Bugsy Seigel's daughter, and she dated the notorious mobster Abner "Longy" Zwillman, who secured a two-picture deal for her with Harry Cohn of Columbia Pictures by loaning Cohn $500,000 in cash. He also purchased her a jeweled charm bracelet and a red Cadillac.
