Audrey Hepburn

“There are movie stars and then there are movie stars — performers who have such a unique and often indescribable quality that their very name connotes the magic of the cinema. Audrey Hepburn was definitely a movie star.

Hepburn has remained timeless. Her characters, her look and her persona seem as contemporary today as they did nearly six decades ago.

The amazing thing about Audrey I found from working with her is that she was a very vulnerable person and very fragile emotionally.

She was the opposite of the diva. She never complained.

What was amazing, for me, was the combination of innocence and elegance. She had it and I think that is probably what William Wyler saw in her when he cast her in “Roman Holiday.” There was something about her that just leaped out at you. They used to talk about the cameras loving certain individuals, and it certainly loved her in a very special way.
