Kelli Garner stars as blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe in Lifetime's two-part miniseries The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe.
The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe has everything you expect from a Lifetime miniseries: drugs, sex, scandal, and a mentally unstable acting legend!
Kelli Garner stars as the titular blonde bombshell, while Susan Sarandon tackles Monroe's mother, Gladys.
The first half of the two-part miniseries focused on Monroe's simple upbringing, her tragic relationship with her mentally unstable mother, and how she got her start. The iconic Marilyn Monroe is a hard character to pull off -- you want to do the sexpot justice without verging into caricature.
While The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe was not the tragic disaster that was Grace of Monaco, the costume work was just as impressive. Susan Sarandon plays Marilyn Monroe's mentally ill mother, Gladys, in the Lifetime miniseries The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe. The movie showed Monroe transitioning into her memorable persona -- changing her name, altering her voice (an idea she stole from a theater attendant!), blossoming into her sexuality and, finally, dying her hair blonde.

One of the most memorable moments of the first two hours was a recreation of the risqué red velvet photo shoot by Tom Kelley. The trademark Lifetime soap opera goodness came toward the end of the second hour, when the mentally ill Gladys slapped Marilyn (get that Emmy, Sarandon) before being sedated and taken out of the room. Look forward to more deliciously dramatic Lifetime moments when part two airs on Sunday, May 31 at 9 p.m. Sign up now for the Us Weekly newsletter to get breaking celebrity news, hot pics, and more delivered straight to your inbox!

Kelli Garner and Susan Sarandon star in Lifetime’s two-part miniseries The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe, based on J. Sarah was living the perfect life with her husband, Jason and their son Brandon until… Jason simply disappears! The two-part TV movie examines the life and times of the woman formerly known as Norma Jean, beginning with a two-hour installment all about the gone-too-soon superstar's early life.

The full reveal near the end of this first installment solidified Garner’s striking resemblance to Monroe and, mixed with the spot-on voice, it was something to behold. The iconic images are a part of Hollywood history, and it’s hard to recreate something so memorable -- but it was achieved here. Sarandon hammed it up -- her wig got bigger and crazier as the movie progressed -- and the two had wonderful chemistry. From Monroe's simple garments growing up to the memorable gowns she wore later in life, the costumes were pure fashion nostalgia. To make matters worse, Sarah’s son suffers from a rare genetic disease and only Jason’s DNA can save him.
When Sarah finally tracks down Jason, he sets out to make sure Sarah doesn't ruin his secret life and expose his dangerous past.
