"Sex-appeal exists in a woman, regardless of whether she is beautiful or not. Many physically unattractive women are popular with men because of ‘something’ they possess which reaches out and collides with the men’s personality." — attributed to Myrna Loy in 1925, shortly after she signed with Warner Bros.

In her first and only meeting with the famous macho actor Marlon Brando, early in her career at Paramount, the two were seated next to each other at an Actor’s Guild luncheon. As they sat down, Audrey said a shy hello. Brando said not a single word to her during the entire dinner. For 40 years, Ferrer says, his mother believed that Brando had shunned her. But in the hospital near the end of her life, she received a letter from the famous actor. A mutual friend must have told him of Hepburn’s feelings, and he wrote to set the record straight. Although she might have been shy of him at that luncheon, he recalled that he had been so much in awe of her that he was speechless. He couldn’t think of a single thing to say.
