Trivia

Jennifer Love Hewitt is actually an avid fan of Audrey Hepburn and admitted she found it very "scary" to be playing her idol onscreen as so was worried her portrayal would not do her justice. See more »

Goofs

In the movie Truman Capote complains, that Audrey in the part of Holly Golightly in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" get a song. He says: "Call girls don't sing." But in his book, the movie based on, Holly Golightly also sings, so it's unlikely that Capote really said that. See more »

Quotes

Audrey Hepburn: [after receiving an Academy Award] I would like to thank my mother, who taught me to stand up straight, sit erect, use discipline with wine and sweets, and only smoke six cigarettes a day.

Audrey deserved much better
10 June 2001 | by (Manhattan,New York) – See all my reviews

I have been an Audrey Hepburn fan, for as long as I could remember, and was dying to see this biopic actually. I wasn't going to judge it right away, but after seeing it twice, it turned out to be the worst biopic I've ever seen in my life. Jennifer Love Hewitt, not to bad-mouth her, but just did not fit the part at all. She lacks the looks, the poise and the maturity to portray such a film legend. For those who disagree, just rent some Audrey movies-(Breakfast at Tiffany's, Roman Holiday, The Nun's Story) and compare. Also the biopic only shows half of Audrey Hepburn's life. It starts off with JLH (Audrey) making Breakfast at Tiffany's, then through a series of flashbacks she recalls some event's of Audrey's life. So half the time JLH is staring dreamily into space in those big dark sunglasses. Emmy was terrific as young Audrey during the Nazi occupation, which made me stuck around, but afterwards it became just awful. They got the facts all wrong about Audrey as well. Her Oscar speech, her meeting with Givenchy, were incorrect. The supporting cast were not much help either.Please before you see this biopic, (if you dare too) look at some of Audrey's websites, watch her movies, read a good biography on her (Audrey Adieu is good) Don't rely on this TV biopic to give you all the facts on her. She was a talented, beautiful, elegant and compassionate woman who deserved much better than this biopic.
