I believe this role should have been played from Audrey Tautou she looks like Audrey Hepburn , she is so sweet also .

I believe this role should have been played from Audrey Tautou she looks like Audrey Hepburn , she is so sweet also . Same name,similar look and Audrey Tautou is an excellent actor. Anyway a biography film cannot replace the person Audrey Hepburn, a blank will always exist because these were the gold years of cinema and as the years were passed , cinema's quality gets poorer and poorer. Of course there are many great actors and Jeniffer is one of them perhaps she wasn't the best choice for this role but she is also giving us great films.We shouldn't be tough with the actors sometimes they are humans sometimes they are doing some bad choices in their career. Although anyone would like to give by acting life to a legend , it takes courage to do it and the result is unexpected always .
