Audrey Hepburn Didn’t Think She Was Beautiful


Audrey Hepburn is a role model of mine. My room could be considered a shrine to Hepburn artwork, and I worship any movie she’s ever acted in. Such a beautiful and confident woman can be inspiration for anyone, but apparently, Hepburn didn’t believe in herself as much s we all did.

Audrey Hepburn’s son Luca Dotti informs Vanity Fair this month that his mother didn’t see what everyone else saw. In the May issue of Vanity Fair, Hepburn covers in an old yet timeless photo.

Her son, Dotti, reflects on his mother’s style and appearance in the issue while discussing his new book, Audrey in Rome, which includes 2,500 photos of his mother gathered from various sources.

According to her son, Hepburn “thought she had a big nose and big feet and she was too skinny and didn’t have enough breasts. She would look in the mirror and say, ‘I don’t understand why people see me as beautiful.’”

What does this mean if one of history’s most beautiful women didn’t believe in herself? Maybe it means that we’re all imperfect, and we all, unfortunately, have insecurities.
