Today, May 4th is Star Wars Day. So, being the geek that I am.... Happy Star Wars Day folks and May the 4th be with you!!
Today, is also what would have been Audrey Hepburn's 85th birthday. I love Audrey. Sure, I don't personally know her, but I think she is the most elegant woman to have ever graced the planet.
So, I've decided to give tribute to both today. Luckily, I found the photos above and below that combines the two. Audrey is know for having said some great quotes in her life. One of them, "Nothing is impossible. The word itself says I'm possible!" could have easily been given as advice to Luke Skywalker. Apparently Yoda agrees with Audrey, hence his advice "Do, or do not! There is no try!" given to Luke in Return Of The Jedi

I've always been a huge Star Wars fan. Its the movie that I quote the most (I quote movies in my conversations every single day). Plus I always joke around that 23.5% of George Lucas' wealth has come directly from me. I've lost count on how many action figures, lightsabers, VHSs, DVDs, Blurays, replica of the Millenium Falcon, Darth Vader helmet, and other merchandises that I have owned throughout my life.
This past week, news broke out of the confirmed cast for Episode VII. Made me even more excited for the movie that is coming out next year. And I honestly believe J.J Abrams will do a great job on it.
Oh, and check out my list of Favorite Star Wars Characters that I made in February 2012. This blog was still in its infancy back then, and I believe that my writing, well STILL HASN'T improved!! But again happy Star Wars Day!!

Now on to Audrey. In my blog post 100 Film Facts About Me, I wrote this down: "Forget the origin story of Captain America, here's a true story. At sometime during the 1920s, scientists performed a top secret genetic engineering experiment to create the perfect female specimen: An exceptional woman with a face radiating with explicit beauty, mannerisms that illuminates with elegance, and an accent and speaking voice of unequivocal delicacy. The result was Audrey Hepburn. Even with those high standards, I think they actually over-achieved by creating her!"
I still believe this is true!! Other than being the most elegant woman ever, she is also a very good actor. This despite Emma Thompson previously saying that "Audrey Hepburn was twee, mumsy, and really couldn't act" (read that story here). You're a great actress yourself Emma, but I overwhelmingly disagree with you on that matter.
