Emma Ferrer Makes Modeling Debut Channeling Grandmother Audrey Hepburn On 'Harper's Bazaar' Cover

13 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

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. »

John Goodman Back to Hollywood with Bryan Cranston in 'Trumbo'

31 July 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

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.
