“She was always a little bit surprised by the efforts women made to look young. She was actually very happy about growing older because it meant more time for herself, more time for her family, and separation from the frenzy of youth and beauty that is Hollywood. She was very strict about everybody’s time in life.” -Luca Dotti remembers his mother Audrey Hepburn. (Left: Audrey Hepburn circa 1957. Right: Audrey Hepburn in 1990)
