Audrey Hepburn's Career by the Numbers
One of America's most beloved actresses, Audrey Hepburn graced the silver screen for decades. Her iconic roles and fashion certainly left an impact on the film industry and beyond. Here's the well-known actress' career by the numbers.
Audrey's career began in 1948 when she was cast in Dutch in Seven Lessons. This small gig served as a launchpad for Hepburn, who secured a title role in the 1951 Broadway show, Gigi.
But it wasn't until she was cast as the lead in Roman Holiday that she became an international star. The movie was a box office hit and earned $12 million. Audrey went on to win a Best Actress Oscar for playing the adventurous princess.
Throughout the ‘50s and ‘60s, she continued to star in Hollywood blockbusters, including the legendary re-adaptation of Truman Capote's novella, Breakfast at Tiffany's. The leading lady was nominated for four Academy Awards.
However, acting wasn't her only success. Audrey was also a humanitarian. In 1989, she was appointed as the Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF. Her international relief efforts awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Audrey's legacy in charity continues through the Audrey Hepburn Children's Fund and the Audrey Hepburn Society – which, to date, has raised over $100 million in donations for UNICEF.
With quite a career, the EGOT winner certainly proved that "nothing is impossible."
