“Audrey was meek, gentle, and ethereal, understated both in her life and in her work. She walked among us with a light pace, as if she didn’t want to noticed." ―Sophia Loren
“Audrey gave more than she ever got. The whole world is going to miss her.” ― Steven Spielberg
“Before I even met Audrey, I had a crush on her, and after I met her, just a day later, I felt as if we were old friends… Most men who worked with her felt both fatherly or brotherly about her, while harboring romantic feelings about her… She was the love of my life." ―William Holden.
“So many people primarily thought of Audrey as regal, but I like to think of her as spunky.” ― Gregory Peck
”Audrey was known for something which has disappeared, and that is elegance, grace and manners … God kissed her on the cheek, and there she was." ―Billy Wilder
“There is no doubt that the princess did become a queen—-not only on the screen. One of the most loved, one of the most skillful, one of the most intelligent, one of the most sensitive, charming actresses—-and friends, in my life—-but also in the later stages of her life, the UNICEF ambassador to the children of the world. The generosity, sensitivity, the nobility of her service to the children of the world and the mothers of the world will never be forgotten.” ― Gregory Peck
“Audrey sensed very early in her life and career that self-worth based on fame or beauty is very short-lived, and so she remained forever herself — realistic, aware, and caring." ―Robert Wolders
“The extraordinary mystique of hers made you think she lived on rose petals and listened to nothing but Mozart, but it wasn’t true. She was quite funny and ribald. She could tell a dirty joke. She played charades with a great sense of fun and vulgarity, and she could be quite bitchy.” ― André Previn
“Audrey was the kind of person who, when she saw someone else suffering, tried to take the pain on herself. She was a healer. She knew how to love." ―Shirley MacLaine
“She shared her joy with friends, but kept her unhappy moments to herself.”―Hubert de Givenchy
“She did the best that we could be; she was perfectly charming and perfectly loving. She was a dream. And she was the kind of dream that you remember when you wake up smiling.” ― Richard Dreyfuss
“I think that there are few people in one’s life that you never really feel that they’re gone. I have to remind myself that she isn’t around." ―Blake Edwards
”She believed in love. She believed love could heal, fix, mend, and make everything fine and good in the end… and it did. She left us with peace and serenity, and her passage was almost devoid of any pain.” ― Sean Hepburn Ferrer
Happy Birthday Audrey Hepburn!
