And history remembers her as pretty...

As this photo was reblogged, the previous comments kept being added to by subsequent posters.  And it became an "exquisite corpse" style poem (each new addition is indented).

‘Cause people seem to only post the 20-something Audrey Hepburn
     this is genuinely the first photo i’ve seen of her looking older
I didn’t know Audrey Hepburn grew old into a bomb-ass old lady until like, last year. I thought she died young cuz that’s the only pictures I’ve ever seen. 
     omg
she was also the granddaughter of a baron, the daughter of a nazi sympathizer, spent her teens doing ballet to secretly raise money for the dutch resistance against the nazis, and spent her post-film career as a goodwill ambassador of UNICEF, winning the presidential medal of freedom for her efforts.
and history remembers her as pretty.
     and history remembers her as pretty.
     and history remembers her as pretty.
and history remembers her as pretty.
     et l’histoire se souvient d’elle comme étant seulement belle.
