Audrey Hepburn è stata un'attrice britannica. Cresciuta tra Belgio, Regno Unito e Paesi Bassi, dove visse sotto il regime nazista, durante la seconda guerra mondiale studiò danza per poi approdare al teatro e infine al cinema.

Nel corso della sua carriera lavorò con Billy Wilder, George Cukor e Blake Edwards, oltre che con attori del calibro di Gregory Peck, Humphrey Bogart, Gary Cooper, Cary Grant, Rex Harrison, William Holden e Peter O'Toole e divenne famosa grazie a ruoli come quello di Gigi in uno spettacolo teatrale tratto dall'omonimo romanzo della scrittrice francese Colette , interpretazione che le valse il Theatre World Award per i debutti teatrali, della Principessa Anna in Vacanze romane , interpretazione che le valse l'Oscar come migliore attrice, di Holly Golightly in Colazione da Tiffany e di Eliza Doolittle nel film musicale My Fair Lady . Altri importanti film cui prese parte sono Sabrina , Sciarada e Come rubare un milione di dollari e vivere felici .

Negli anni settanta e ottanta apparve sempre più raramente sul grande schermo, preferendo dedicarsi alla famiglia. Nel 1988 fu nominata ambasciatrice ufficiale dell'UNICEF e, da quel momento fino alla sua morte, si dedicò assiduamente al lavoro umanitario, in riconoscimento del quale ricevette nel 1992 la Medaglia presidenziale della libertà e nel 1993 il Premio umanitario Jean Hersholt .

Vincitrice di un Oscar, di tre Golden Globe, di un Emmy, di un Grammy Award, di quattro BAFTA, di due premi Tony e di tre David di Donatello, la Hepburn fu una delle figure di spicco del cinema statunitense degli anni cinquanta e sessanta. L'American Film Institute ha inserito la Hepburn al terzo posto tra le più grandi star della storia del cinema. e ha una sua stella sullo Hollywood Walk of Fame, al 1652 di Vine Street.

Frasi Audrey Hepburn

„Living is like tearing through a museum.“

—  Audrey Hepburn
Context: Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering — because you can't take it all in at once. As quoted in Audrey Hepburn : A Bio-bibliography (1994) by David Hofstede

„I am more than ever awed and overwhelmed by the monumental talents it was my great, great privilege to work for and with.“

—  Audrey Hepburn
Context: I am more than ever awed and overwhelmed by the monumental talents it was my great, great privilege to work for and with. There is therefore no way I can thank you for this beautiful award without thanking all of them, because it is they who helped and honed, triggered and taught, pushed and pulled, dressed and photographed — and with endless patience and kindness and gentleness, guided and nurtured a totally unknown, insecure, inexperienced, skinny broad into a marketable commodity. I am proud to have been in a business that gives pleasure, creates beauty, and awakens our conscience, arouses compassion, and perhaps most importantly, gives millions a respite from our so violent world. Thank you, Screen Actors Guild and friends, for this huge honor — and for giving me this unique opportunity to express my deepest gratitude and love to all of those who have given me a career that has brought me nothing but happiness. Statement accepting the Screen Actors Guild Achievement Award, read by Julia Roberts, because of Audrey's failing health. (January 1993)

„I always love it when people write me and say "I was having a rotten time, and I walked into a cinema and saw one of your movies, and it made such a difference."“

—  Audrey Hepburn
Context: People associate me with a time when movies were pleasant, when women wore pretty dresses in films and you heard beautiful music. I always love it when people write me and say "I was having a rotten time, and I walked into a cinema and saw one of your movies, and it made such a difference."
