Audrey Hepburn Weighed 88 Pounds: Malnutrition During War To Bla
Audrey Hepburn weighed 88 pounds during World War II as she was extremely malnourished, and went without substantial food for quite a few years. According to People Magazine, Hepburn's son, Luca Dotti, has written a book about his mom's life (titled Audrey At Home), and in the book, he reveals that his mom's thin physique stemmed from years of malnourishment that she went through when she was young.

"The reason for her slenderness was because from the time she was 9 to 16, during World War II, she was extremely malnourished. The time she most needed nourishment, she didn't have enough food...

A Short History Of EGOT Winners

2/22/2015 3:00pm EST
February is both Oscar and Grammy time, which has us thinking about EGOT winners, i.e., entertainers who have won at least one Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony in their careers. The term was coined by actor Philip Michael Thomas (Tubbs from “Miami Vice”) in an interview in “Vanity Fair,” when he stated his goal of winning all four awards (he has yet to be nominated for any of them). The concept was further popularized in recent years on “30 Rock,” in a storyline that saw Tracy Jordan achieve EGOT status over the course of Seasons 4 and 5.

The following is a handy guide to actual ’s are perh...

Julie Andrews Breakfast at Tiffany's 50th Anniversary Screening
“Breakfast at Tiffany’s” is the kind of movie that feels familiar the first time you watch it, and seems fresher and brighter every time afterwards. It’s iconic. It’s Audrey Hepburn. It’s fashion and the little black dress.

It’s Moon River, a song “Sex & the City” fans may remember Carrie and Big dancing to in the show’s post-9/11 love letter to New York.

It’s New York at its most beautiful, romantic, and hopeful.

While the city has changed and there are certain details (Mickey Rooney) that may not be considered “timeless,” Audrey Hepburn’s Holly Golightly is the type of stylish modern w...

Hollywood Unwrapped: Must Not See TV

4/15/2011 8:43am EDT
I have a question to ask all of the readers of this column. Do we really have Hollywood stars or real actors that we had in the past? Gone are the days when studios had an iron claw on the stars and being a celebrity actually meant something.

Yes, today we still have a handful of Academy Award winning movie stars such as Meryl Streep, George Clooney, Tom Hanks, and Clint Eastwood. We don’t have stars like Steve McQueen, James Dean or an Audrey Hepburn. But that's on the big screen.

Today, television is packed with reality shows that makes us lose brain cells and it seems like we be...

HarperCollins Releases Children's Book About Audrey Hepburn

Just Being Audrey
When Audrey Hepburn starred in a movie, she lit up the screen. Her unique sense of fashion, her grace, and, most important, her spirit made her beloved by generations. But her life offscreen was even more luminous.

As a little girl growing up in Nazi-occupied Europe, she learned early on that true kindness is the greatest measure of a person—and it was a lesson she embodied as she became one of the first actresses to use her celebrity to shine a light on impoverished children throughout the world.

This is Audrey as a little girl, an actress, an icon, an inspiration; this is Audrey just b...

Chloe Moretz's Friends Are A Bunch Of Slobs

Chloe Moretz
"Let Me In" star Chloe Moretz has apologized to Paramount Studios bosses after her recent 13th birthday screening party there turned into a sticky mess as her ill-mannered friends ran riot.

The young actress was thrilled when studio bosses agreed to dust off the original reel of "Breakfast At Tiffany's" for her, so she could watch her heroine Audrey Hepburn just as she had watched herself 50 years ago.

And they even let her invite 30 friends to the studios for a private screening.

She tells WENN, "They gave me a private screening room and I saw the original reel of 'Breakfast at Tiffany'...

Natalie Portman: The Best Actress Of Her Generation?

10/1/2010 10:10am EDT
black swa
Since her intense breakout role in 1994’s “The Professional,” Natalie Portman has been one of the most respected and versatile actors working in Hollywood. Her filmography spans over 15 years but is as impressive and solid as Audrey Hepburn’s or Meryl Streep’s, two actresses to whom she has rightfully been compared.

It makes sense that Portman has become one of the most talented performers in Hollywood considering the amazing list of directors with whom she’s worked:

Luc Besson (“The Professional”)

Michael Mann (“Heat”)

Ted Demme (“Beautiful Girls”)

Woody Allen (“Everyone Says I Love Y...

Penelope Cruz has vowed never to lie about her age - because she isn't ashamed of growing older.

The 36-year-old actress is determined to grow old "gracefully" like movie icons Sophia Loren and Audrey Hepburn, and she's determined not to play the Hollywood game of knocking a few years off her birth date.

She tells Britain's You magazine, "I never want to lie about my age. If I look around at the actresses I admire, they are all women who have not fought growing older, but embraced it - women like Sophia Loren or Audrey Hepburn... Of course my face will change as I get older, but that's ...

Penelope Cruz - Broken Embraces
Everything Penelope Cruz does generates lots of interest and attention. She came to Hollywood after acclaimed and controversial foreign films, only to date the most famous movie star in the world.

Ten Underrated Thrillers

10/17/2008 10:12am EDT
The Descent
Horror movies are some of the most consistent pieces of the film industry. Sure there have been highs and lows in the genre, and resurgences have come and gone, but one thing remains true: people will always yearn for those cinematic chills.

The demand, however big it may be, is always constant. The golden age of cinema through the 60s brought on big studio monster movies, sly noir thrillers, and of course, Hitchcockian suspense (a subgenre, respectively). The 1970s, arguably the paramount epoch of cinema, period, saw the expansion of the genre and gave filmgoers some of the best nail...

Spotlight On Talented, Oscar-Winning Movie Stars

Daniel Day-Lewis
There are many talented people in Hollywood who have won a coveted Oscar, and there are so many talented winners that it's difficult to just name a few.

Daniel Day-Lewis is known as one of the most selective actors in the industry; he's starred in only four movies in the last 10 years. Whenever Day-Lewis has a movie being released, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences stands up and takes notice. He's won two Academy Awards for Best Actor: His first was in 1989 for his role as Christy Brown in "My Left Foot" and the other in 2007 for his work as Daniel Plainview in "There Wil...

Gossip Girl is one of the most talked about new shows on the CW Network this year. The show focuses on the lives of socialite teenagers on New York's Upper East Side who attend elite prep schools, go to fabulous benefits and look like they waltzed off the pages of Vogue. It may be the irresistible storyline or the preteen following it had from the books by Cecily von Ziegesar that attracted the viewing audience, but the guilty pleasure of tuning in each week is also satisfying after seeing all the characters' trendy fashions.

The show stars six of the hottest young actors who aren't a...
