Movies can without a doubt bring us into the land of make believe but I find that you can learn things from the characters that people play. Audrey Hepburn acted in some wonderful films where her characters were inspiring, funny, complex, and ambitious.
Here are 6 things that I think you can learn from watching Audrey Hepburn films:
Do something you have never done before and have fun with it! Roman Holiday (1953)
Bagels, New York, little black dresses, and Tiffany's. These are all very, very good things. If you can combine them all into one day then it would be a good day indeed. Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961)
Paris can do wonders for a girl. Sabrina (1954)
Kissing Cary Grant. Yes. Please. He was much older than Audrey in Charade (1963). So lesson learned. its perfectly fine to be kissed by a dashing older man especially if he looks like Cary Grant. Seriously.
This is how you make an entrance. Bold colors, elegance, and with grace. Funny Face (1957)
This is a film photo from My Fair Lady (1964). When Audrey's character Eliza makes an entrance in that dress she showed us that if you dress the part, act the part, and believe in the part then everyone around you will believe in it too.
