Audrey Hepburn


Hi, there!,

Since I love this extraordinary actress so much, I've just decided to write about her, about AUDREY HEPBURN.

Undoubtedly, Audrey Hepburn is a significant icon of HOLLYWOOD, FASHION and HUMANITARISM.

In 1935, when her parents got divorce, she was living in Netherlands with her mother. When the German invasion and occupation of World War II, she changed her name because an "English-sounding" name was considered dangerous. From that moments onwards, she suffered from malnutrition and developed constant health problems.

After the war, Audrey and her mother moved to London, where she studied ballet. She worked as a model, and in 1951, began acting in films, mostly in minor or supporting roles as Audrey Hepburn. She got into acting mainly to make money.

After that, Audrey was offered a starring role opposite Gregory Peck in the Hollywood motion picture, Roman Holiday. For her performance, she won the 1953 Academy Award for Best Actress. She also starred: Breakfast at Tiffany's, My fair Lady, How to Steal a Million and Robin and Marian. Audrey's last film role, a cameo appearance, was of an angel in Steven Spielberg's Always, filmed in 1988.

Audrey Hepburn, maybe due to her difficult poor childhood, she became a great ambassador of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).
At last, but no least, let's watch and listen these videos taken from two famous films:
BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S and ROMAN HOLIDAY.







PS. To my brother who is always talking about her films, he looks up Audrey Hepburn so much.
