“I was asked to act when I couldn’t act. I was asked to sing ‘Funny Face’ when I couldn’t sing, and dance with Fred Astaire when I couldn’t dance - and do all kinds of things I wasn’t prepared for. Then I tried like mad to cope with it”
I’d fallen in love with her in My Fair Lady on Broadway, so I’d had a crush for forever, working with her like being hit over the head with a big Valentine’s Day card every day but when we did meet on The Sound of Music she had just had a child, so I had to stay arm’s length—what am I talking about?—full length away from her, but it was sort of like an awful tease. I couln’t do anything. (x)
We should have ended up together… We should have had a huge smashing affair. But there was no time because she had her children with her, which was most inconvenient, I thought. (x)
Happy 85th Birthday Audrey Hepburn! (b. May 4th, 1929 - January 20th, 1993)
“What you see in Audrey Hepburn is exactly what you get. There is no public and private persona. She is what she seems to be. It may sound boring, but Audrey is one of the most special human beings I’ve ever met in my entire life.”
Now every night before you get into bed, where you used to say your prayers, I want you to say: “The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain” fifty times. You’ll get much further with the Lord if you learn not to offend His ears.
