WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 18, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (AUK.)" COURIER NEWS PAGE THRU Half Sprite, Half Woman Audrey 'Could Charm Snake' But Shyness Is Her Biggest Problem (Third of Five) By DICK KLEINER NEA Staff Correspondent NEW YORK — (NEA) — When Audrey Hepburn wants to go to the movies, she goes to the movies. Other stars may request private screenings, but Audrey Hepburn just picks up her purse and goes out to a theater. Aud you could have knocked a certain Paramount executive over with a dropped option one day last winter. "I was passing the Paramount," tie said, mentioning one of the largest Broadway movie houses, "and there was a line outside. A' jut halfway down the line was Audrey Hepburn, standing there just like anybody else." This facet of her personality has puzzled the Paramount executive, as well as others he's told the story to. And they've all decided that her willingness to stand in line does not indicate that she feels strongly about democracy so much as that it wouldn't occur to her to do anything else. "She was brought up along certain lines," the executive says, "People do things according to certain rules. And the rule is that when you want to go to the movies, you just go out to the movies. It would be foreign to her makeup to seek special favors, or to do anything else." « * * This theory of Why-Hepburn-Is- So-Hepburnish holds that she is an extremely average person, in her own eyes, and was brought up to believe (and practice) that decent, respectable people always behave decently and respectably. As an example of decency and respectability in action, there is this story. If Audrey Hepburn would have said she used a certain product, she would have been given a check that ran well up into five figures. This is the advertising stunt called "the endorsement"—"Belinda Glotz uses Mrs. Looselips' Mascara." The proposition was turned over to Miss Hepburn routinely. "But I don't use it," she said. "It would be preposterous for me to say I did." She turned it down. It wouldn't have been decent or respectable, since it was not true. There was no hesitation; it simply was not proper. * « • But Audrey Hepburn, like any oth human, departs in certain ways from "the mold. She has her own private idiosyncracies Her biggest personal problem is shyness. She is shy almost to the point of a fault. She has been shy most of her life and her sudden fame, of course, aggravated the or vhere it is. . While she was in "Ondine here, her usual practice was to head directly home after the theater. There»was none of that stopping off at El Morocco or Sardi's for a late supper, like most of the stars do. Too public for Audrey Hepburn. On the other hand, she is no., a stick-in-the-mud. On dates her last few numbs here—generally with co-star Mel Ferrer—there's be dinners and dancing at some out-of- the-way spot. She has always been popular with men (and, before that, with boys) and there's never a shortage of escorts. Essentially, she's a happy person. She has a good, although quiet, sense of humor, and can laugh at her own problems. She has many friends — she makes them slowly, keeps them long. She can fall asleep easily — always a sign of a happy, well-adjusted person — and takes 15-minute naps frequently during the day. She takes an almost childish delight in getting presents. It doesn't matter what's inside. She just likes to tear the wrapping off and see what it is and who gave it to her. * * * But there Is nothing childish about her in her business dealings. She makes most of her own decisions, although she takes the advice of a select few, notably her lawyer, an elderly family friend. He advises her mostly on her financial matters. She leaves, her contracts and A diplomat is a fellow who can keep still in several languages. MCT Channel 3, 4 WHBQ Channel l3Television — Tonight, Tomorrow — W such affairs mostly up to her agent, although she has definite ideas about what she wants and wh._J;s he should get. She's not dedicated to money, but she knows the value of a buck. Recently, she changed * agents, a decision she made herself and the creak was made quickly and neatly. Add all this up and you have Audrey Hepburn, with one exception. And that's her personal charm, a feature that is perhaps her greatest single asset. It may take a while for it to make its presence felt, but her friends say the more you know her, the more you want to know her. "Audrey Hepburn," says one man, "could charm a snake."
