The Hepburns

Posted by admin on January 12, 2011 in Blog Pop Culture History

Katharine Hepburn and Audrey Hepburn were two very popular actresses of the same era. Katharine is older and was around first, then Audrey. Audrey was a model and dancer first, then an actress. Both were born under the sun sign of Taurus. Both had an impeccable sense of style, and both have had prominent roles and unforgettable roles in Hollywood. Audrey is probably most known for Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Katharine is most likely most popular for her role in On Golden Pond, which she did later in life. However in her early life, she was famous for starring opposite heavy hitters like Spencer Tracy, Cary Grant, Humphrey Bogart, and John Wayne.

They didn’t know each other prior to show biz, but the two have often been confused. I know I have a pretty intelligent reading audience, but I love Hollywood history. I thought I should clarify, lest we forget our history and forever get the two twisted. In about forty years I’ll do the same clarification with Perez Hilton and Paris Hilton.
