There is no comparison to Audrey Hepburn. There never was and never will be anyone like her.

yeah i agree, jolie is a slut, audrey is and was an angel, full of radiance. there is noone like her, especially today. i mean, its good when celebs today do work in other countries, but i mean, compareing jolie to audrey should be considered a sin, since audrey was an angel on earth and jolie was, well, the complete oppisite in films and her life. one has no class, while the other is a class act.

I think somewhere in the world some one would have features, but your right no one would actually look like Audrey, And Jolie does clashes with Audrey! Lol

I don't think Jolie compares to Hepburn at all! If we are talking about appearances only, Natalie Portman resembles her quite a bit. But everyone is right- there will never be another Audrey!

The picture of Audrey Hepburn is iconic for its simplicity---evoking nostalgia and a misplaced longing for simpler times. We are all out of simple and have been for some time. I don't think we should compare an icon to someone who might become one. Nor do I believe we can dismiss modern celebrities as either this or that. After all, they are merely instruments of popular culture---a phenomenon which has been with us for at least fifty years.
Cultural icons act out popular opinion and attitudes of their times. We took West Side Story into our hearts: it was a passion play about cliques, gangs and thuggery. But it was done so tastefully that we quickly excused its premise and said: well, kids will be kids!
Before we commit our modern figures to any sort of judgmental scrutiny, we ought to think long and hard about who created them and their amoral ways. (Pointing fingers always risks an accounting.) They give us exactly what we expect, bestowing vicariousness to liven up our mundane world. Exactly.

Art rarely imitates life. To believe otherwise is to believe in paradox as normality. No. Heisenberg has it at least partially correct. Life CREATES art and sometimes regrets the creation. But, art, be it significant or be it trifling, is an outlet for our dreams and a palliative for our recurring boredoms. It takes us away from 'wars and rumors of war' and relieves our oyher malaises.

Sorry about the typo---I was surprised by the time limit, not having seen it before.
