Actors Birthdays

Remembering Audrey Hepburn

Photo0091

On this day in 1929, Audrey Hepburn was born in Belgium. Audrey would go on to become one of the most beloved of all the classic era film stars. Audrey would also become famous as a fashion icon, and for the great deal of charity work she undertook.

I like Audrey as an actress, but I like her more for who she was in real life; by all accounts(I have never heard or read a bad word about her)she was a kind, gentle and classy woman who treated everyone the same. There was nothing phoney about Audrey and it showed, she truly was someone who was beautiful inside and out.

If you want to know more about Audrey’s life, I highly recommend that you read this biography: Audrey Her Real Story by Alexander Walker. It is a thorough and moving account of her life and career, and features some beautiful personal and studio photos of Audrey.Photo0092

Despite her talent and fame, Audrey actually made very few films during her career, and I do find that a shame because she was a very good actress.

Here are my top five Audrey Hepburn film performances.

                              1- Sister Luke in The Nun’s Story.

                                 2- Holly in Breakfast At Tiffany’s .

                                 3-Princess Ann in Roman Holiday.

                   4- Suzy in Wait Until Dark.

          5- Sabrina in Sabrina.

Audrey passed away in 1993, following a battle with cancer. Happy Birthday, and R.I.P Audrey. Thank you for so many wonderful film memories.

Please share your thoughts on Audrey and her films below.

  1. I really should give the blogging world a rest and make the time to watch some of Audrey’s films. Can you believe I still haven’t seen one?

  2. Love this reminder of a post on such an iconic but more so kind hearted woman. She not only shone for her obvious beauty but her eccentric roles were so heart warning and joyous to watch as she had brought wit and class together. I love re- watching Breakfast At Tiffanys every few years.

  3. She was a beautiful woman. I always found her eyes to be so soulful. I’ve seen many of her films and believe that she is underrated by many as an actress, because of her beauty. She possessed a nice subtlety in her work that many overlook. Though I must confess I still have some movies of hers to see. Thanks for the reminder.

  4. She is one of my favorite actresses. I haven’t seen many of her films but my personal favorites are Roman Holiday, Sabrina and Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I loved her in My Fair Lady and The Children’s Hour as well!
