Audrey Hepburn quote: “I am more than…


Audrey Hepburn quote:

“I am more than ever awed and overwhelmed by the monumental talents it was my great, great privilege to work for and with. There is therefore no way I can thank you for this beautiful award without thanking all of them, because it is they who helped and honed, triggered and taught, pushed and pulled, dressed and photographed — and with endless patience and kindness and gentleness, guided and nurtured a totally unknown, insecure, inexperienced, skinny broad into a marketable commodity. I am proud to have been in a business that gives pleasure, creates beauty, and awakens our conscience, arouses compassion, and perhaps most importantly, gives millions a respite from our so violent world. Thank you, Screen Actors Guild and friends, for this huge honor — and for giving me this unique opportunity to express my deepest gratitude and love to all of those who have given me a career that has brought me nothing but happiness.”

Black and white portrait of Audrey Hepburn with a poised and elegant demeanor, standing against a textured stone wall. Audrey has neatly styled short hair, prominent eyebrows, and a gentle expression. She is wearing a simple, long-sleeve blouse and has her arms crossed in front of her.
Audrey Hepburn, 1956
