AUDREY HEPBURN: SHORT BIOGRAPHY

Audrey Hepburn: short biography

I was born on the fourth of May and died three weeks later, said Hollywood actress, Audrey Hepburn. Three
weeks after she was born, her heart stopped. Her mother saved her life with a little slap.

Audrey Hepburn was born in Brussels, Belgium in 1929. Her father was an English banker and her mother was
a Dutch baroness. Ms. Hepburn began her career as a graceful dancer and model. She also appeared in small
parts in European films. Hollywood soon became interested in the pretty actress.

In Hollywood, she appeared in over 30 films including; Roman Holiday (1951), Funny Face (1957) and Breakfast at Tiffanys (1961).
She became famous for her thin figure, beautiful eyes, and quick intelligence.

From 1988, Ms. Hepburn worked for the United Nations Childrens Fund (UNICEF). This work made her
famous all over the world. On January 20, 1993, at the age of 63, Ms. Hepburn died of cancer in Switzerland.

Audrey Hepburn said,Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, its at the end of your arm. As you get
older, you must remember that you have a second hand. The first one is to help yourself, the second one is to
help others."
