Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
UNICEF. Hepburn concentrated on her charitable works for UNICEF and spent the last years of her life working for needy children, especially in Africa and Latin America, up until the end of her life when, on January 20, 1993, she passed away of colon cancer at her home in Switzerland.
Always. Steven Speilberg's 'Always' was made in 1989. In it she played an angel named Hap. This would be Audrey's final film.
Wait Until Dark. 'Wait Until Dark' was made in 1967, and gave Audrey her fifth Oscar nomination.
Sean and Luca. Sean was from her first marriage to Mel Ferrer, and Luca was from her second marriage to Andrea Mario Dotti.
two. She has two sons. Sean was born on July 17, 1960, and Luca was born on February 8, 1970.
1935 . Some sources say 1935 and some say 1938 ... so I can't say for sure which year is correct.
Joseph and Ella. Her mother was a Dutch Baroness and her father was an English banker.
Audrey. She was born Audrey Kathleen Ruston; and her name on the baptismal certificate was Audrey Kathleen van Heemstra Ruston. For a time she also used the name Edda van Heemstra Hepburn-Ruston (when Holland was occupied by the Nazis). Ella was her mother's name.
May 4, 1929. Audrey was born in Ixelles, Belgium.
20th January 1993. She died of cancer at the age of 63. Her funeral was held 24th January 1993.
Always. She played an angel named Hap, and starred with Richard Dreyfuss and John Goodman (1989). 'Bloodline' was made in 1979, and 'They All Laughed' was made in 1981. She wasn't in 'Ghost'.
4. I guess that is (at least part of) the reason why she cherished her children, and other children, so very much. She had wanted children more than anything in the world.
UNICEF. Audrey loved her work with UNICEF and she traveled more in her years with them than she did in all the years she was making movies. 'To save a million children is a God-given opportunity', she said. She also received the 1990 Child Survival Award for her work with UNICEF.
Luca. Luca Dotti was born 8th February 1970.
Andrea Dotti. Andrea Dotti was a prominent Italian psychiatrist. They divorced in 1982.
"My Fair Lady" (1964). Not only that, it won seven other Academy Awards, including those for Best Director, Best Costume Design, and Best Actor.
Rhubarb. Even though he was 'a poor slob without a name' to Holly, to everyone else he was Rhubarb.
|"Breakfast at Tiffany's" (1961) : Truman Capote originally wrote the role of Holly Golightly for which other actress?||The Lovely Audrey Hepburn
Marilyn Monroe. Yep, he intended it for Marilyn Monroe. I really liked Audrey as Holly, even though Truman Capote didn't like it so much.
Sean. After the birth of Sean, Audrey is said to have said 'The long wait made it that much sweeter.' She was referring to giving birth and having children (something she had wanted more than anything in the world).
The Unforgiven. She was thrown from a horse and had broken several vertebrae. She also had her second miscarriage while filming 'The Unforgiven'.
The Nun's Story. 'The Nun's Story' is an excellent film, and in my opinion, she truly deserved that award. She was nominated for an Oscar, but lost to Simone Signoret for 'Room at the Top'. 'Green Mansions' was also made in 1959, but 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' and 'The Unforgiven' weren't made until the early 1960s.

Hubert de Givenchy. French couturier Hubert de Givenchy not only created the 'Hepburn look', he and Audrey ended up life long friends. And he always remained her favorite designer. He even served as a pallbearer at her funeral. 'Sabrina' is another Hepburn film I highly recommend.
Roman Holiday. She starred opposite Gregory Peck, in this film (made in 1952). It's a great film, and she won a Best Actress Academy Award for her role of Princess Anne. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it.
