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 on Audrey Hepburn

Hepburn did not waste time holding on to youth. ”She was always a little bit surprised by the efforts women made to look young,” remembers [her son] Luca. ”She was actually very happy about growing older because it meant more time for herself, more time for her family, and separation from the frenzy of youth and beauty that is Hollywood.” (Audrey’s Dolce Vita - Vanity Fair 2013.)
