Audrey Hepburn nearly starved to death during World War II

Audrey Hepburn was one of the biggest movie stars of the 1950s and 1960s. Even then, fame and success should have always led to happiness, but the actress carried her past with her throughout her life. The physicist who helped perfect her stardom shaped her traumatic experiences during World War II.

But during this time she wasn’t just an obsessed spectator. There is much evidence that Hepburn played her part to help the resistance fight the Nazis.
