Audrey HepBurn That Is Who I Would Be
I Was Born With An Enormous Need Of Affection
Deciding to take a break from writing about Suzy and Forrest and jumping to the Q&A I ran across a fun little request that was just to tempting and could not be passed by. BadCompany99 asked, " If you could be a movie star dead or alive, who would you be?"
Question appeared to be rather simple but then I found myself pacing and thinking, seeking out the pros and cons, reviewing them for their talent and ability , honestly asking myself who would I choose to be ,over and over there was only one person who came to mind, if I could be any actress who would have been known for her talent, elegance, poise, sophistication, charm and beauty it certainly was Audrey Hepburn. Her career began in the English cinema and after being selected for the part of "Gigi" on Broadway, Audrey Hepburn in 1953 finally made her debut in Hollywood in which she had been cast in "Roman Holiday" and also took homeher first
Oscar for best actress for playing a bored little princess who appeared to be smothered by her guardians who watched over her and fell in love with an American news reporter(Gregory Peck) in the beautiful city of Rome.
Audrey Hepburn-Ruston was christened Audrey Kathleen Ruston and had been born to Baroness Ella Van Heemstra and Joseph Ruston. She had been an aristocrat from the very beginning her father was a wealthy English banker , her mother a Dutch baroness after her parents divorced she went on to a private school for girls. Audrey endured Hitler's regime when her and her mother had been vacationing and the small town of Arnhem in Holland had been invaded by the Nazis and Audrey ended up suffering from depression and malnutrition. Once Arnhem, Holland had been liberated Audrey and her mother continued to London where Audrey attended Ballet school on a scholarship and later on began a modeling career. Her beauty, poise and grace not only captured the hearts of the producers, but also captured the hearts of the people as she went on to be cast in comedies such as Sabrina 1954, Love in the Afternoon 1957, Breakfast at Tiffany's 1961, My Fair Lady 1964, and many others.
Audrey and I have similiarities when it comes to life and our perception of what is at hand and what lies ahead. I will share with you some of the quotes that I have elegantly framed and hanging on my office wall. When I have a hectic day, I look up read and remind myself about who I am, where I have come from and which direction I need to go. Keeping myself ever so humble about my beauty. I am very evenly mannered and am sincere when being thankful and accept and admire people for who they are.
" Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, its at the end of your arm. As you get older. remember you have yet another hand: the first is to help yourself, the second is to help others."
" I was born with an enormous need of affection, and a terrible need to give it."
"I never though I'd land in pictures with a face like mine."
"For me, the only things of interest are those linked to the heart."
Audrey was naturally beautiful, elegant and ever so humble. Her style of clothing was simple and classic,her sleeveless dresses and big sunglasses were fun and stylish. She was charismatic and charming throughout her entire career. If I could be any movie star it would be Audrey Hepburn she was a woman with an enormous heart.
