When Jack Warner was casting the movie My Fair Lady, Julie Andrews, who played the original Eliza Doolittle on Broadway, was overlook for the part, that was given to Audrey Hepburn.

That made her available to accept Mr. Disney’s invitation to play Mary Poppins.

At the 22nd Golden Globes, when she won the best actress award (she was up against Audrey for My Fair Lady), she had her sweet revenge.


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."

Lawrence E. Bruce Jr.
