The woman needs to be here. A natural skinny and absolute beauty. There is a quote about Audrey's Hollywood arrival. Along the lines of "When Audrey Hepburn arrived, everyone went one diet."
Yeah, I think that's true (and also that she was too tall to be a professional ballerina) but I also read/heard that she tried to make sure she maintained a slim figure.I believe she is not a 'natural' skinny as in born with it but because of her circumstances. I think she was placed in some kind of concentration camp and therefore, during her career afterwards, she was always smaller because of that traumatic experience. That, and she was also a ballet dancer ever since her youth.
I think it's not starvation at all, just healthy diet .I also read that usually for breakfast she had two hard boiled eggs, a toast and 3 or 4 cups of coffee with hot milk; for lunch it was either yoghurt and fresh vegetables or cottage cheese and fruit; for dinner: some steamed vegetables and fish or meat. She wouldn't have desserts, but the best indulgence in the world she thought was a piece of a good chocolate cake. She had a weakness for chocolate, although she never let herself go. She is supposed to be a good cook too.
