Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly backstage at the 28th Annual Academy Awards on March 21, 1956. Neither Grace Kelly nor Audrey Hepburn were nominated at the event in RKO Pantages Theatre. Grace Kelly presented Best Actor Oscar for Ernest Borgnine for Marty and Audrey Hepburn made the best film for the same film. That year, Anna Magnani won the award for best actress for The Rose Tattoo, and Jo Van Fleet won the award for best supporting actress for East of Eden. Grace Kelly won the Oscar for best actress last year for her role in The Country Girl , and the year before that Audrey Hepburn won the Oscar for best actress in Roman Holiday (1954). Although you can feel the tension in the photograph above by Allan Grant, two protagonists got along perfectly in real life. In a month’s time, Kelly will marry Prince Rainier of Monaco and become Princess Grace.
"How amazing it is to find someone who wants to hear about all the things that go on in your head."
"But I don’t believe that life is supposed to make you feel good, or to make you feel miserable either. Life is just supposed to make you feel."
"Falling in love with yourself first doesn’t make you vain or selfish, it makes you indestructible."
"You must learn to let go. Release the stress. You were never in control anyway."
