A Doe, A Deer


Audrey Hepburn with her fawn, Pippin.

When the British actress was making her 1959 film Green Mansions, directed by then-husband Mel Ferrer, the animal trainer on the set suggested that she take her on-screen sidekick, a baby deer, home with her so that he would learn to follow her. Audrey’s inner calmness was perfect, and the deer thought she was her mother. Nicknamed ‘Ip’, the deer would cuddle Audrey and accompany her to the supermarket in Beverley Hills. Hepburn’s dog, a Yorkshire Terrier called Mr Famous was very jealous of the new addition to the family. (Text via AnOther Mag)
