Audrey Hepburn Net Worth
Audrey Hepburn Net Worth: Audrey Hepburn was a British actress and humanitarian who had a net worth of $100 million. Born Audrey Kathleen Ruston (4 May 1929 – 20 January 1993) in Ixelles, Brussels, Belgium, she was recognized as a film and fashion icon during Hollywood's Golden Age (1927-1963). A daughter of an English father and Dutch mother, she spent her childhood in several European countries, ranging from Belgium, England and the Netherlands, to German-occupied Arnhem during the Second World War. By the age of five, Hepburn was already taking ballet lessons. She devoted herself to mastering the craft first training with Sonia Gaskell in Amsterdam, and then with Marie Rambert in London. Soon, she performed as a chorus girl in West End musical theater productions. Having starred in several British films and playing the title role in the 1951 Broadway play Gigi, Hepburn successfully performed the Academy Award-winning lead part in Roman Holiday (1953). Next, the actress with gracefully petite figure and famously long neck could be seen in blockbusting movies like Sabrina (1954), The Nun's Story (1959), Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961), Charade (1963), My Fair Lady (1964) and Wait Until Dark (1967). Hepburn's numerous turns were honored with various accolades and recognitions, making her one of few people who have won Academy, Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Awards. Actually, Audrey Hepburn was the first Hollywood actress to win an Oscar, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA Award for a single performance, i.e., Roman Holiday in 1954. As her life went on, she reduced her acting engagements devoting much of her time to UNICEF. In addition to being UNICEF's Goodwill Ambassador, Audrey also worked in some of the most profoundly disadvantaged communities of Africa, South America and Asia between 1988 and 1992. A year later, she lost her battle with appendiceal cancer at her home in Switzerland at the age of 63. In a career that spanned over 4 decades, Audrey Hepburn earned a place in the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame and was ranked by the American Film Institute as the third greatest female screen legend in the history of American cinema.
