AUDREY HEPBURN, ALWAYS AND FOREVER A DANCER....


by Dane Youssef


Audrey Hepburn was a goddess and icon of her era, this goes without saying. But I thought I might as well say it anyway. Just out of respect for the late iconic starlet.


And for the sake of good old fashioned juicy gossip and scandal, let's dish about some nasty little issue of hers she was deathly insecure about. Yes, every woman has one.


Heh. More than one. So much more. At least one hundred.
She thought she was too fat or too short, she disliked her teeth, her whole smile. Even her entire build. Doesn't EVERY woman? Maybe they should be.


In People, she came out about her deepest, darkest secret... her deepest, darkest hatred... absolute anger for those size-10 feet.
So those feet she was handed were a trifle big for her. Yeah, they did just go over an impressive size 10.


Whoa…


The lithe delicate little one.


Hey, an all too-little known fact?


All the great female starlets who broke the mold and changed the world around them, became household names, defined their time with their presence had a pair of oversized skis: Kate Winslet, Whoopi Goldberg, Julia Louis Dreyfus, Meg Ryan, Paris Hilton, Debra Messing, Uma Thurman, Jenna Elfman. You get the idea.


And like all of them early on in their lives, they were considered her “too boyish and flat-chested” and picked on her 6-foot something guy feet. Picked on for them.


But Hepburn is a deity.


Did any of you out there know she was considered for the Emma role in “The Turning Point.” Although Audrey herself actually had experience at the barre’–little Audrey herself was a classically-trained ballerina. She’d spent years practicing the craft. Hell, she got a scholarship to a ballet boarding school!


Anne Bancroft got the role and the late Mrs. Robinson never took a class in her life, never learned a step.


But she had that powerful look, that face, those deep eyes and physical presence of a classical ballerina. The kind that doesn’t need to have trained for years, practiced all her spare time, dreamt all her life or even to know what ballet is. She just needs to pull on a tutu, a pair of tights, toe shoes and just stand on-stage.


So it’s anyone’s guess whether or not Audrey would have been the wiser choice…
The times and the world have all changed. But so many people who remember when Audrey was a contemporary star, remember her as something that somewhere strangely between an angelica, a goddess, a starlet, a beauty empress, and a innocuous little girl.
Will any other come along who will… fill those shoes on hers?
Kate Winslet has some of Audrey’s way in her. So has Jennifer Love Hewitt, even playing her in a low-rent TV movie (which was great disservice as far as I’m concerned).


But one Natalie Portman seems to be the most likely to fill those 6-foot something guy shoes of Audrey’s. Of course, she plans to leave Hollywood pretty soon… for a life is psychology.


Audrey Hepburn… there was only one. And there will always be.

This picture is obscure and unrepresentative of Audrey Hepburn. This image is inappropriate to represent her on her profile as she is not clearly identifiable especially on the thumbprint view.
