TRIVIA
 
-Was fluent in English, Spanish, French, Dutch, Italian, and Flemish.

-Is descended from a long line of royals, her mother was a baroness and Audrey is related to, among others, Queen Wilhemina of Holland and Mary Queen of Scots

-Had a breed of tulip named after her in 1990.

-Everyone remembers when Marilyn Monroe serenaded President John F. Kennedy on his birthday in 1962. What is often forgotten is that Audrey Hepburn sang "Happy Birthday Mr. President" to JFK for his final birthday in 1963.

-Audrey Hepburn won the 1953 Best Actress Academy Award for Roman Holiday (1953). On March 25th, 1954, she accepted the award from the much revered Academy president Jean Hersholt. After accepting the award, Audrey kissed him smack on the mouth, instead of the cheek, in childish excitement. Minutes after accepting her 1953 Oscar, Audrey realized that she'd misplaced it. Turning quickly on the steps of the Center Theater in New York, she raced back to the ladies' room, retrieved the award, and was ready to pose for photographs.

-One of Audrey's most frequent co-stars was her wardrobe designer, Hubert de Givenchy, who created many of her costumes for films like FUNNY FACE, CHARADE, BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S, SABRINA and HOW TO STEAL A MILLION.
 
-Notting Hill, one of my favorite movies, was based on Roman Holiday.
