Morimoto Marie is a member of Hinatazaka46's 3rd Generation.

- She shares the same birthday as fellow Hinatazaka46 member Yamaguchi Haruyo (February 23, 2004).
- She was born in Paris and lived there until she was four years old. She cannot speak French, though.
- Her parents chose the name Marie (茉莉) for two reasons:
- First, because the characters read as "jasmine flower" in Chinese. In flower language, jasmine represents elegance, friendliness, and warmth. The name Marie therefore shows that her parents wanted her to grow up to be a woman who is charming and elegant.
- Second, because it can be romanized as "Marie", a common French name. This would make it easier for Westerners to pronounce.
- Coincidentally, the train station closest to her house in France was called Jasmine Station.
- She has an older brother.
- She has two pet dogs. One is a white shiba inu named Snow, and the other is a black shiba inu named Black. Black is 5 years older than Snow.
- She describes herself as a person with no special quirks or characteristics. She is also "not good at being indifferent", in the sense that she does not like to be idle and wants to experience new things.
- She is a longtime fan of the Sakamichi Groups.
- She was a finalist for the 15th All Japan National Bishoujo Contest in 2017.
- She likes listening to ASMR.
- She likes fashion and clothes shopping.
- She is a fan of K-Pop and J-Pop. She likes K-Pop artists such as BoA and EVERGLOW, and J-Pop artists such as the Sakamichi Groups, ≠ME, and Ieiri Leo.
- She visits Yamanashi Prefecture every year with her family.
- She wants to live abroad someday.
- She wants to visit Hinohara Village, Mt. Hiei, and Miyagi Prefecture someday. She wants to explore these places by bike or by foot because she likes nature.
- She wants to learn how to surf. She then wants to travel around Japan in a van and visit surfing spots.
- On Hinatazaka de Aimashou she claimed that a haiku she wrote in middle school was selected as one of the winners for the ITOEN Oi~Ocha (おい〜お茶) Shinhaiku Contest. This is an annual competition hosted by ITOEN tea company, in which 2,000 submitted haikus are selected to be printed on ITOEN tea bottles for the year. Submissions typically number 1 to 2 million. However, fans could not find any record of her winning, and instead found that she had won a different haiku competition, the Kobayashi Issa (小林 一茶) Elementary School Haiku Competition. Fans brought this to her attention, and she realized she had mixed up the two contests because they both had the character "茶" in the name. She apologized for the mistake later in her blog.
- She gets frequent nosebleeds in the summer. She says her best method to stop an active nosebleed is to suck on ice cubes.
- Her oshimen is Ushio Sarina. During the 3rd Generation Members' Cooking Competition on Hinatazaka de Aimashou, she chose Sarina as the senior she wanted to cook for.
- She is close with Miyata Manamo ("MM Sisters"). She said it is because of Manamo that she is able to talk to her senior members.
