I did not know that, but I'm not surprised. She was always extremely thin. But she was also one of my favorite actresses. Did you buy the picture?

I didn't know that either and I, too, am not surprised! One of my favorite actresses as well! Hope you have a great weekend!

I did not know. No wonder she helped poor children once she had become rich and famous: she remembered how it was to be starving..

I can say what Malyss did; never knew that about her. She was great.

She should have learned the delights of ice cream!

I've read her autobiography, she was also a spy!

I had read that in her biography Brattcat, she was an amazing woman and the epitome of grace, elegance and dignity, all with a beautiful sense of humour. I do hope that picture is now hanging somewhere in your home.

I thought I knew much about Audrey Hepburn but now I see my knowlege is very little.

What an interesting place you're showing us. Worth a trip with or without the camera. What am I saying ... always the camera!

It would not have occurred to me that tulips are edible.

Are you kidding me? Well that's a diet I'll pass on!

If I thought that I could look like her, I would gladly eat tulip bulbs. Don't mean to be flip, but she is one of my favorites as she was for many in my generation. The war was terrible for too many.
