Fred Astaire, american film and Broadway stage dancer, choreographer, singer, musician and actor.

"I am, and forever will be, devastated by the gift of Audrey Hepburn before my camera. I cannot lift her to greater heights. She is already there. I can only record. I cannot interpret her. There is no going further than who she is. She has achieved in herself her ultimate portrait."
Richard Avedon, american photographer.
"Audrey Hepburn's face was made for the camera."
Christine Baranski, american actress.

Cecil Beaton, english photographer, diarist, painter and interior designer.
"The imprint of Miss Hepburn is absolutely, totally present. Like it or not, she will be the most important look of the twentieth century."
Manolo Blahnik, spanish fashion designer.

"In Greek myth - among the most ancient of the Western religious histories - you would have to compare Audrey to Hestia, goddess of the hearth, for whom the family home was her main concern and, by extension, every home."

"Saint Audrey seems quite appropriate to me - for in her life and work she was born to show the world that true grace and innocence, human kindness and hope, still can exist on earth."

"Whenever the lines didn't quite suit her, she would alter them and they always sounded better her way. Often I would compliment her by saying, 'That's not the line, but it's better that way.' And invariable she would say, 'Oh, isn't it?! I thought it was. I'll say it the way you want, I thought it was that line.' And I'd always have to reassure her that her rewrite, instinctual or conscious, was an improvement. But she invariably claimed ignorance of any difference and repeatedly said she'd do it my way. I never let her."

Peter Bogdanovich, american film historian, director, writer, actor, producer and critic.

"I think it's just important to not judge people based on their physicality because it's really about personality and people's hearts and souls. That's what drew me to Audrey Hepburn who is kind of like my icon."

"The first time I saw Audrey Hepburn was in Roman Holiday. There have only been a few firsts in my life that have rattled me so much - the first time I saw Fred Astaire, the first time I saw Marlon Brando. It was obvious to me that she was going to join a group into which a few artists are admitted: Chaplin, Astaire, Brando."

Fimc14's rating:

"I was determined to wipe Audrey out of my mind by screwing a woman in every country I visited. My plan succeeded, though sometimes with difficulty. When I was in Bangkok, I was with a Thai girl in a boat in one of the klongs. I guess we got too animated, because the boat tipped over and I fell into the filthy water. Back at the hotel I poured alcohol in my ears because I was afraid I'd become infected with the plague. When I got back to Hollywood, I went to Audrey's dressing-room and told her what I had done. You know what she said? 'Oh, Bill!' That's all. 'Oh, Bill!'. Just as though I were some naughty boy. She was the love of my life."
William Holden, american actor.

"Audrey was meek, gentle and ethereal, understated both in her life and in her work. She walked among us with a light pace, as if she didn't want to be noticed. [I regret losing her] as a friend, as a role model, and as a companion to my youthful dreams."
Sophia Loren, italian actress.

"It was my good luck, during that wonderful summer in Rome, to be the first of her screen fellows, to hold out my hand, and help her keep her balance as she did her spins and pirouettes. Those months [were] probably the happiest experience I ever had making movies."

"This girl single-handedly could make bosoms a thing of the past!"

"What is needed to become a real star is an extra element that God can give you or not. You are already born with it. You can't learn it. God kissed the face of Audrey Hepburn, and there she was."

"Sabrina" (1954)

Billy Wilder, american filmmaker, screenwriter, producer and journalist.

Bob Willoughby, american photographer.
"For me her charm lay... in a style that seemed the embodiment of sophisticated, existentialist Europe as opposed to the overripe artificiality of Hollywood. She might look like Bambi, but her casual style signaled student, not starlet; she proved that a woman could have brains and still be attractive."
Elizabeth Wilson, american actress.

Audrey Hepburn died for 20 years. And this is my tribute to her.
To a wonderful woman, that left her mark in the world. Because she deserves.

Audrey Hepburn is a classic actress. She is one of the most importants and legendaries figures in the cinema.

Audrey Kathleen Ruston.
Born Edda van Heemstra, in 4 May 1929, Brussels, Belgium.
British Nationality.
Actress and Humanitarian.
Film and Fashion Icon.

Audrey Hepburn really was blue-blood from the beginning with her father, a wealthy English banker, and her mother, a Dutch baroness. After her parents divorced, Audrey went to London with her mother where she went to a private girls school. Later, when her mother moved back to the Netherlands, she attended private schools as well. While vacationing with her mother in Arnhem, Netherlands, Hitler's army took over the town. It was here that she fell on hard times during the Nazi occupation. Audrey suffered from depression and malnutrition. After the liberation, Audrey went to a ballet school in London on a scholarship and later began a modeling career. As a model, she was graceful and, it seemed, she had found her niche in life, until the film producers came calling.
In the movies she appeared as a delicate adolescent, a look which remained until her last movie Always. Her career as actress began in the English cinema and after having been selected for the Broadway play Gigi she debuted in Hollywood in 1953. Audrey gained immediate prominence in the USA with her role in Roman Holiday in 1953. This film turned out to be a smashing success as she won an Oscar as Best Actress. This gained her enormous popularity and more plum roles.
Audrey reached the pinnacle of her career when she played Holly Golightly in the delightful film Breakfast at Tiffany’s in 1961. Hepburn's portrayal of Holly Golightly as the naïve, eccentric café society girl is generally considered to be the actress' most memorable and identifiable role.
In 1988, Audrey became a special ambassador to the United Nations UNICEF fund helping children in Latin America and Africa, a position she retained until 1993.

Audrey Hepburn died on 20 January 1993, in Tolochnaz, Switzerland, from appendicular cancer. She was 63 years old.

We miss you, Audrey.
