Vintage Quotes – Audrey Hepburn: “I’m rather funny looking”

gettyimages-79025559 - Vintage Quotes - Audrey Hepburn: "I'm rather funny looking"

On not looking like an actress:

“I never thought I’d land in pictures with a face like mine.” […] “I don’t have sex appeal and I know it. As a matter of fact, I think I’m rather funny looking. My teeth are funny, for one thing, and I have none of the attributes usually required for a movie queen, including the shapeliness.”

… said Audrey at the peak of her acting career.

Vintage Beauties: Betty Brosmer

smallest-waist - Vintage Beauties: Betty Brosmer

At request, the return of our Vintage Beauties posts!

Name: Betty Brosmer and later, Betty Weider

Also known as: ‘The girl with the impossible waist”

Height: 5’5” / 165 cm

Age today: 81

Occupation: pin-up model, author, trainer

Also known for:

  • being the co-founder of Shape Magazine
  • being the wife of famous bodybuilder Joe Weider

Before the age of photo editing, Betty stood out with her unique proportions depicting an hourglass shape with an impossible waist, measuring only 18 inches / 46 cm. But although Betty’s shape was admired by many and the beautiful blonde had a great career as a pin-up model (and later as a trainer and author), there was a lot of speculation at the time (1950s-1960s) regarding the methods Betty used in order to achieve her hourglass shape. While some say that corset training played a role in transforming her body, others say that the model opted for a waist reduction surgery, a procedure that alters the shape of the ribcage (and moves internal organs in the process).
