Born in Belgium in 1929, Audrey Hepburn became a major movie star and fashion icon of the 50s and 60s. After suffering through famine and war in German-occupied Netherlands during World War Two, she moved to London in 1948 and began working in theater and film. Her turn on Broadway in Gigi (1951) led to movie roles in the United States.
Hepburn's silver-screen debut was a lead role in Roman Holiday (1953), for which she won an Oscar. She went on to star in iconic films such as Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) and My Fair Lady (1964). She is one of the few people to have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Award.
Hepburn filmed less frequently in the 70s and 80s, preferring to spend her time doing humanitarian work for UNICEF. She died in 1993, but her legacy as a talented dancer, actress and philanthropist live on. Her quotes are reminders of dedication.
