Google celebrates Audrey Hepburn's 85th birthday today

Google celebrates the 85th birthday of Audrey Hepburn today, May 4.

From Wikipedia:
Audrey Hepburn (born Audrey Kathleen Ruston; 4 May 1929 – 20 January 1993) was a British actress and humanitarian. Recognized as a film and fashion icon, Hepburn was active during Hollywood's Golden Age. She was ranked by the American Film Institute as the third greatest female screen legend in the history of American cinema and has been placed in the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame. She is also regarded by some to be the most naturally beautiful woman of all time.

She spoke several languages including English, French, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, and German.

Hepburn remains one of few people who have won Academy, Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Awards. She won a record three BAFTA Awards for Best British Actress in a Leading Role.

Here's a trailer of Roman Holiday, in which Hepburn played the Academy Award-winning lead role.
