Audrey Hepburn plays a delightfully quirky (call?) girl with a heart of gold in this classic from the ’60s. Most of us have had a Breakfast at Tiffany’s poster of Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly displayed in our rooms at one point, and she is considered a style icon for her charming demeanor and classic, timeless fashion sense.
The movie has delighted many since it got released in 1961, cementing its spot on the most iconic movies of all time list. Here are some of the best bits of trivia we could find about this epic tale!
Truman Capote wrote the book, and had it turned into a movie. He wanted Marilyn Monroe to play Holly Golightly! Historian and writer Sam Wasson said, “Another thing you may not know: Marilyn didn’t take the part in part because Paula Strasberg, her advisor and acting coach, said she should not be playing a lady of the evening.”
Capote, on his end, was miffed by this decision, saying: “Paramount double-crossed me in every way and cast Audrey.” We can’t picture anyone else but Audrey in this role!
