The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day gives ‘em the old pizazz.

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!

Oh, Audrey Hepburn. How was there ever a creature so beautiful, elegant and proper on this Earth? That girl had spunk, attitude and a sweetness to her in just the right amounts. There has been no prettier skinny girl before or since.

Today’s pic features her skipping along in front of the cameras on location shooting Funny Face. I have another BTS shot from this movie that features Hepburn goofing off with her co-star, Fred Astaire, but this one seemed better for a nice Sunday evening shot.

Enjoy! Click to embiggen!

    Doesn't look like Fred Astaire.

    by jrb

    Are you sure that's him? Maybe just a weird angle of his face.

    Thought the pic would be from "Chicago."

    My biggest old-timey crush.

    If I were somehow in her presence, I'd become a stuttering, incoherent mess.

    That he has another picture of her with Fred Astaire. This is not that picture. This is Audrey with the director of Funny Face, Stanley Donen.

    No offense intended, but we have Natalie Portman

    atari - true

    by BubbaDestructo

    In many ways, Natalie Portman is like the 'new' Audrey Hepburn. Very similar in screen presence and physical similarities.

    A beautiful photo that gets no comments...

    by steve

    Yet some dude dressed as a bat fighting some dude wearing a hockey mask gets thousands. Times we live in folks...

  • I dunno

    That's the director Stanley Donen with her, right?

    You're right dukeroberts. My mistake.

    by jrb

    I read the description too fast and thought he said she was walking with Astaire in this pic.

    Early Hepburn Movie Requirement

    by Aquatarkusman

    All male suitors must be at least thrice her age (Humphrey Bogart, Fred Astaire, etc). Actually, there was a lot of May-December horseshit going on back in the day, but none has ever surpassed our generation's Entrapment.

    Portman WAS to be the next Hepburn, but...

    by Jay Eyler

    It was impossible in modern times for anyone to stay as classy. I love Natalie, and in her early career even sported the tasteful dress and look of a young Audrey, drawing comparisons by the media, but Natalie was groomed by very protective parents and went a little wild after starting college. Not wild by normal kid standards, but for her previous personality, she became "real", which today means something very different from Audrey's day. I'm glad I live in a liberated society, but Audrey shows us the positive side of a more innocent time, even if it was acting.

    Is Natalie Portman the new Audrey Hepburn?

    by david starling

    She's beautiful, but I'm sure if you asked Natalie she would say that she's the new, the old, and the same gorgeous Natalie Portman all over!! And ditto to Audrey. Sheer class, never a cliche.
