2Old School Gossip: Audrey Hepburn Edition

Audrey Hepburn was and still is known for her style, grace, and beauty; so much so that she’s still making commercials (albiet digitally as she’s been dead for, you know, decades.)

But Ms. Hepburn never thought she was pretty. Her son, Luca Dotti, revealed a lot about his mother in the upcoming May edition of Vanity Fair (of which she’s on the cover!). Dotti says,

She thought she had a big nose and big feet, and she was too skinny and not enough breast. She would look in the mirror and say, ‘I don’t understand why people see me as beautiful.’

That bums me out. She’s like the shining light for girls and women insecure with their noses and small breasts. But it reminds me that even mega movie stars aren’t always happy with themselves. Regardless, I am still going to rock my small boobies to their fullest.

But here’s one cool thing about the legendary Audrey. She was never hung-up on aging.

She was always a little bit surprised by the efforts women made to look young. She was actually very happy about growing older because it meant more time for herself, more time for her family, and separation from the frenzy of youth and beauty that is Hollywood. She was very strict about everybody’s time in life.

I WISH EVERY ACTRESS IN HOLLYWOOD LIVED BY THIS.

Trivia: did you know that Luca Dotti’s dad was ten years younger than his mom, Ms. Audrey? And that his mom married his dad when she was 40? Get it, girl.

    She was one of the most beautiful and elegant women I have ever seen. Her every move just reeked of grace and dignity. It’s sad that she had some of the same insecurities that plague us all but after all, she was just human. If I was the “ladylike” type, I would want to be just like her. I would love to have met her; I would be willing to bet big money that she was charming beyond belief.
