Audrey Hepburn’s granddaughter Emma Ferrer emulates her grandmother's signature style and grace in her modeling debut for Harper’s Bazaar.
Emma Ferrer On Audrey Hepburn
Ferrer, 20, poses and is styled in ensembles that are reminiscent of those Hepburn was known for during her years as a fashion icon. Though Ferrer never met her famous grandmother, through photographs and stories she feels as though she’s developed a deep kinship with her.
“I remember seeing a photo of her jumping on a trampoline — I believe this was before I understood that she was famous," Ferrer told Harper’s Bazaar. "But I remember thinking that she looked like a friend I wish I could have had. As a child I couldn't really relate to Audrey Hepburn, the actress. To me, she was family."
As Ferrer grew older, she began to understand her grandmother’s notoriety and legendary status in Hollywood by watching her famous feature films. »

Meet Audrey Hepburn's gorgeous granddaughter Emma Ferrer.
Good genes clearly run in the family.
Audrey Hepburn's 20-year-old granddaughter Emma Ferrer graces the September cover of Harper's Bazaar, looking lovely channeling the iconic star.
In the accompanying interview, Ferrer talks about her experience having Hepburn as a grandma, though unfortunately, she never got a chance to meet her -- Audrey died in January 1993 of a rare form of abdominal cancer.
Ferrer -- her first grandchild -- was born in May of the following year.
"The first images I have of her are, interestingly enough, when she was quite young," she says. "I remember seeing a photo of her jumping on a trampoline -- I believe this was before I understood that she was famous. But I remember thinking that she looked like a friend I wish I could have had."

Audrey Hepburn's beauty lives on!The actress' granddaughter, Emma Ferrer, is gracing the two versions of the cover for the September issue of Harper's Bazaar. Dressed in a Lanvin gown with fitted black sleeves and a loose-fitting white skirt, the 20-year-old beauty, whose father is Hepburn's oldest child Sean, could easily be mistaken for the late Hollywood star. In another photo, Emma channels her grandmother's elegant poise in a black and white jacket, matching fur stole and wide-brimmed hat. While Hepburn passed away in 1993, a year before Emma was born, there's no denying that her legacy lives on within her. "I remember seeing a photo of her jumping on a trampoline -- I believe this was before I understood that she was famous. But I remember thinking that she looked like a friend I wish I could have had," she tells the mag. "As a child I couldn't really relate to Audrey Hepburn, »

Following supporting roles in the Best Picture winning Argo, it looks like John Goodman and Bryan Cranston will deal with the Hollywood of the past all over again. The Wrap reports Goodman is joining Cranston in Trumbo, the periods drama from director Jay Roach which features the "Breaking Bad" star as screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, the writer of classics like Spartacus and Roman Holiday who was blacklisted and sent to prison during the Red Scare when the House UnAmerican Activities Committee (Huac) was questioning Hollywood talents about Communist ties, forcing many, like Trumbo, to have pseudonyms. This sounds like exactly the kind of film the Academy will swoon over, especially with a cast like this. Goodman's role in the film, if a deal closes, would be that of producer Frank King of King Brothers Productions who hired Trumbo to write for them besides being blacklisted.

Directed by Billy Wilder
The past few weeks have been good for Humphrey Bogart on Blu-ray. The Maltese Falcon, Casablanca, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, and The African Queen were recently rereleased and assembled for the Best of Bogart Collection, and now, Sabrina, one of the legendary star’s final films, has received its first American appearance on the format. Perhaps more importantly, if total number of titles available on Blu-ray is the basis for judgment, Sabrina also marks one of disappointingly few Billy Wilder titles available in the remastered form. That the film also stars the radiant Audrey Hepburn and the remarkably versatile William Holden confirms that the release is worth commending.

If you think Trumbo is some kind of sequel to the Disney animated classic Dumbo, then clearly you missed our story last fall about "Breaking Bad" Bryan Cranston starring in the film based on the true story of screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, who was blacklisted and sent to prison during the Red Scare when the House UnAmerican Activities Committee (Huac) was questioning Hollywood talents about Communist ties. As much as we'd love to see Cranston play a cartoon elephant, you'll have to settle for his work as a tiger in Madagascar 3. Now Variety reports he has a co-star with Helen Mirren taking the part of his wife Cleo. After Trumbo was release from prison, he fought the fear-mongering system of Huac, and even still managed to write films like Gun Crazy and Spartacus for the big screen, albeit under pseudonyms.
