Surprising Things You Didn't Know About Audrey Hepburn

Posted in Inspiration on Jan 20th, 2019


Audrey Hepburn was an iconic actress and a humanitarian with more diverse talents than many realize. The way that many people picture her -- wearing a long black dress and covered in diamonds -- was not a favorite outfit of hers. Many credit her signature poise to her beginnings as a ballet dancer in Belgium. However, her life was not always glitz and glamor, she had to rise from her tragic past, and like a lily in a muck pond, Hepburn grew into an elegant woman.

15. Audrey Hepburn was Deathly Afraid of Water

Audrey Hepburn became a fashion icon in part due to her fearlessness in trying new things. One thing that she lacked in her wardrobe was swimwear. Audrey was deathly afraid of drowning and even when filming the famous pool scene for Two for the Road had to be thrown into the water. The terror she displayed on screen was real even though she was surrounded by crew members just outside the shot.
