Audrey Hepburn is often remembered as one of the most charming and beloved actresses of Hollywood’s golden age.
On the silver screen she was a magnetic presence, winning the love of her on-screen love interests and her audience in equal measures.
But behind the scenes, Hepburn had a winding and complicated love life.
Two marriages, multiple heartbreaks, and reports of several affairs coloured the star’s life, but two great romances truly defined it.
Mel Ferrer, 1953 – 1968
In 1953, Hepburn starred in her first lead role in Roman Holiday, giving a performance that would shoot her to stardom.
The new darling of Hollywood, it was clear Hepburn, then 24, had an incredible acting career ahead of her when she met her first great love.
Mel Ferrer was an actor and director with two ex-wives, four children and 12 years on Hepburn when they were introduced at a party at Roman Holiday’s British opening.
There was no doubt the pair were an odd match, but Hepburn quickly developed a fondness for Ferrer.
The following year they starred together in the Broadway play Ondine, where their romance bloomed, and Hepburn’s star continued to rise.
She was nominated for a Tony for her performance, receiving an Academy Award nomination for Roman Holiday soon after, which she won.

Ryan O’Neal was reunited with his once-estranged daughter Tatum and her three children on Sunday, as they posed for their first family picture together in 17 years. The legendary Hollywood actor, 79, looked frail but elated in the snap, as he sat flanked by his grandson Sean, 32, and Oscar winner Tatum, 56. Also featured in the heartwarming image were Tatum’s other children Kevin, 34, and Emily, 29 – whose father is tennis icon John McEnroe.

There are many more photos of her in this site below.
A selection of rare and candid photographs of Hollywood actress Audrey Hepburn taken during two of her major film roles are on sale for £6,000 by US-based auctioneers Nate D Sanders. The legendary actress was pictured while starring in 1956 epic War and Peace and also The Nun’s Story, which was released three years later. In the former, which was an adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s classic novel, she starred as heroine Countess Natasha Rostova. Among the photos for the film are several portrait shots (left). Another shows her wearing a floral dress and bonnet (inset) and a third shows her being embraced by her co-star Henry Fonda (right).

Although Audrey Hepburn looked good in anything at all, always felt she was over-rated as an actress and even found her a bit irritating in some roles ….
Felt Tatum O’Neill and Ryan O’Neill were both great in ‘Paper Moon’ – love the film, and feel it just sort of works on every level….
Watched yet another repeat of ‘Last of the Mohicans’ over the weekend and yet again fell a bit madly in love with Daniel Day-Lewis’ running through forests, scaling rapids and jumping through waterfalls and barely raising a sweat in the process…But he was also incredible in ‘My Left Foot’ which I’ve seen again in the past few weeks somewhere…

Hi Shetso I know what you mean! I could not understand why
Audrey Hepburn won that Oscar, I think she played herself, perhaps the powers that be saw a fresh face and liked that in Roman Holiday.
The first of the actors that played this character of the flur trapper!
John Hart he was American but it was a Canadian production with the BBC back then, I used to watch it as a child on a little black and white tv.
He later played the Lone Ranger!
Then came along Fess Parker who played the same character in colour Tv!
Then came the modern day Daniel Boone that you have mentioned not sure which year that was though?
with Daniel Day Lewis
