“The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom… you never know what is enough until you know what is more than enough.”
Audrey Hepburn's Biography
Audrey Hepburn (born Audrey Kathleen Ruston) was a British actress, model, and humanitarian who epitomized the glamor of the golden age of Hollywood. She has remained an icon to this day, and her enigmatic beauty has been the subject of many a song.
Hepburn led a fascinating but largely private life outside of her stardom. She was born in Blegium, spoke six languages (English, Dutch, French, Italian, Spanish, and German), lived under the German occupation of the Netherlands for the duration of World War Two, and spent much of her later life as a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF—work for which she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1991 by George H. W. Bush.
Audrey Hepburn didn’t drink much in her younger days (or, if she did, she didn’t talk about it), but as she got older she reportedly came to enjoy exactly “two fingers of J&B scotch,” served neat with a Kent cigarette in the evening. All in all, an elegant drink for an elegant woman.
