Interesting Trivia about Audrey Hepburn for her Diehard Fans

Through this story, we pay our tribute to Audrey Hepburn with some lesser-known facts about her life.

There are a few women in the world cinema who possessed the elegance, beauty and compassion like Audrey Hepburn. In her lifetime, she acquired the status of a global icon and humanitarian who managed to inspire millions with her poise, grace and charm. A star from the golden era of Hollywood, she is adored around the world to this day. Reason? Well, Hepburn was extraordinarily humble and within the reach of ordinary people who could connect with her girly charm and honesty, making her a rarity amidst the ruthless world of showbiz. We bring you some remarkable stories about her life.

  1. She was one of the few actors of her times to have won four major movie awards and become an exclusive member of EGOT club. She won an Emmy (hosting Gardens of the World with Audrey Hepburn), a Grammy (for her album Audrey Hepburn’s Enchanted Tales), an Oscar (best actress for Roman Holiday) and a Tony award (best actress for Ondine). 

Bonus fact: She won an Oscar for her first leading role in Roman Holiday.

  1. Hepburn could speak five different languages: English, Dutch, French, Italian, and German. Given that most of us could barely go beyond two or three languages, that’s some talent!
  2. Contrary to her image, she was an introvert who found happiness in solitude rather than socializing. In her own words, “I have to be alone very often. I’d be quite happy if I spent from Saturday night until Monday morning alone in my apartment. That’s how I refuel.” We feel you, Audrey. We really do.
  3. The actress had a pet deer named Pippin with whom she would be spotted frequently. While most of us would rather be content with a dog, cat or parrot; Hepburn was quite unconventional with her choice of a pet.
  4. Her real name was Audrey Kathleen Ruston, and was British by birth. During the World war, her name was changed to Edda Van Heemstra as a deliberate effort to conceal her nationality. Hepburn’s mother belonged to Dutch aristocracy who became a British national by marriage with the actor’s father.
  5. Her iconic role as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s was originally written for Marilyn Monroe by Truman Capote who couldn’t cast the latter in his movie. Capote thought that Hepburn was ‘terribly miscast’ and he felt like ‘throwing up’ when he saw the final film. That’s hurtful, Mr Capote!

Even though she never considered herself as one, Audrey Hepburn is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful women of all times. Her beauty was not only skin deep, but much beyond that. It reflected on her face, and in the hearts of people.
