Audrey Hepburn, nom de scène d'Audrey Kathleen Ruston, est une actrice britannique, née le 4 mai 1929 à Ixelles et morte le 20 janvier 1993 à Tolochenaz .

Alors qu'elle se destinait initialement à la danse, avant de rejoindre le théâtre à la fin des années 1940, le succès de la pièce Gigi à Broadway lui ouvre les portes du cinéma. En 1953, à seulement 23 ans, on lui décerne l'Oscar de la meilleure actrice pour Vacances romaines.

À quatre autres reprises, elle est nommée aux Oscars, notamment pour Diamants sur canapé . Parmi ses autres grands succès il faut citer Sabrina et Ariane de Billy Wilder, la comédie musicale culte My Fair Lady de George Cukor et Guerre et Paix d'après le roman de Tolstoï.

En 1967, à 38 ans, elle met fin à sa carrière d’actrice pour se consacrer à l'aide humanitaire à l'enfance. Elle multiplie les voyages en Afrique et en Amérique latine pour l'UNICEF, dont elle devient ambassadrice en 1988.

Audrey Hepburn est considérée comme l'une des plus grandes actrices hollywoodiennes des années 1950 et 1960. Aux antipodes des pulpeuses vedettes de cinéma de l'époque, elle incarne un nouveau glamour, plus raffiné : silhouette gracile, visage fin, yeux de biche, sourire malicieux. En 1999, l'American Film Institute lui décerne le titre de troisième plus grande actrice de films américains de tous les temps, derrière Katharine Hepburn – avec laquelle elle n'a aucun lien de parenté – et Bette Davis.

„I have a long-lasting gratitude and trust for what UNICEF does.“

— Audrey Hepburn
Context: I can testify to what UNICEF means to children, because I was among those who received food and medical relief right after World War II, I have a long-lasting gratitude and trust for what UNICEF does. As quoted at UNICEF.org http://www.unicef.org/people/people_audrey_hepburn.html

„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."

„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 believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that loving is the best calorie-burner. I believe in kissing. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls... and I believe in miracles.“

Unidentified ‘member’ of MySpace.com circa 2007–08, quoted in Richard Kennedy The Disgrace of MySpace (self-published [Lulu.com] 23 August 2008, , page 123. This passage and slight variants of it have been widely attributed to Audrey Hepburn long after her death (for example, in Glamour March 2012, page 78); but no evidence of its existence has been found during Hepburn’s lifetime, attributed to Hepburn or anyone else. It has not been found in print before 2008.
