.......Audrey only mouthed the words. It was Marni Nixon that actually did the singing.

 

 

Audrey sang in Funny Face and introduced Moon River in Breakfast at Tiffanys.........

Not at the same time. He dated Gene Tierney around 1946-47. Hepburn was an unknown teenager in England then.

 

 

Yes. He must've met Audrey in the early 50s in Hollywood at some point.......

From what I've read Audrey dated JFK in his younger years but the romance was squashed due to her not being Catholic...............

According to Barry Paris' biography of Audrey Hepburn, Hepburn sang Happy Birthday Dear Jack at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City May 29th, 1963--and her version caused much less publicity than Marilyn Monroes' version did in 1962.I apologize for the inaccuracy in my previous post-- Hepburns' song was "Dear Jack"

.......Audrey only mouthed the words. It was Marni Nixon that actually did the singing.

OK; Yes, Audrey Hepburn did sing Happy Birthday, Mr. President for his 1963 birthday (May 29).  Marilyn Monroe did her version in 1962, I believe.  A link, with text and pictures:

"What is often forgotten is that Audrey Hepburn sang "Happy Birthday Mr. President" to JFK for his final birthday in 1963." (JFK's birthday May 29)
 
Can someone please elaborate on this?  Did it really happen? It's strange that I can't find a photo or a video of this event on line.


Audrey sing to the President???? The only actress that performed the song was Marilyn Monroe.
