The part of your palm right below your thumb represents the strength of your Venus. If this part of your palm protrudes and balloons outward compared to the rest of your palm, then it means you have a very strong Venus. People with a strong Venus are touching, enthusiastic, and quickly become the life of any party. Many indulge themselves with sex, wine, food, dancing and exercise, always to feel good in their bodies. If however, Venus is weak, then the person will be of a sober demeanor and completely introverted.


Along with being intensely in touch with their bodies and emotions, Audrey Hepburn has dominant Water Hands. Water hands are long, slender and soft. Their main focus in life is always either about love, beauty and relationships.


Early Beginning

Audrey Hepburn was born in Brussels, Belgium, on May 4, 1929, the daughter of J. A. Hepburn-Ruston and Baroness Ella van Heemstra. Her father, a banker, deserted the family when she was only eight years old.


Hepburn was attending school in England when the Germans invaded Poland at the start of World War II (1939–45; the war fought mostly in Europe, with Germany, Italy, and Japan on one side and the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union on the other).

England had promised to help Poland, which they did by declaring war on Germany. Hepburn's mother took her to live with relatives in Holland, thinking they would be safer there. The Germans soon invaded Holland, though, leading to the deaths of many of Hepburn's relatives and forcing her and her mother to struggle just to stay alive.

Audrey Hepburm Early days

Sometimes she had nothing to eat except flour. Still, as a young ballet dancer, she performed in shows to help raise money for the Dutch war effort. Hepburn and her mother moved to England after the war, and she continued to pursue her dance career. She was cast in small parts on stage and in films in both Holland and England before being discovered in 1952 by the French novelist Colette (1873–1954) in Monte Carlo, Monaco. Colette insisted that Hepburn play the lead role in the Broadway production of her novel Gigi.


Although Hepburn's lack of experience was a problem at first, she improved steadily, and reviews of the show praised her performance. She also won a Theatre World Award for her work. Hepburn's nationwide exposure in Gigi also brought her to Hollywood's attention. She was given a starring role in Paramount Studios' Roman Holiday.

Costarring Gregory Peck (1916–), the 1953 film tells the tale of a runaway princess who is shown around Rome, Italy, by a reporter who falls in love with her. The role landed Hepburn an Academy Award for best actress at the age of twenty-four.


Career

Hepburn went on to share the screen with all of the top leading men of her time: Cary Grant (1904–1986), Fred Astaire (1899–1987), Rex Harrison (1908–1990), Mel Ferrer (1917–) (whom she married in 1954 and divorced in 1968), and Sean Connery (1930–). In 1959 she made her first serious film, The Nun's Story.

Hepburn and Albert Finney (1936–) were applauded for their strong acting. Of Hepburn's twenty-seven films, quite a few have become classics. She was nominated (her name was put forward for consideration) for three other Academy.


Hepburn started to work with UNICEF and was named the organization's goodwill ambassador (representative) in 1988. Hepburn worked in the field, nursing sick children and reporting on the suffering she witnessed. Hepburn traveled to Somalia in 1992, and her sad but hopeful account focused worldwide attention on the famine and warfare that would eventually kill thousands in that West African country.


Her Late days

Shortly before her death in January 1993, Audrey Hepburn was given the Screen Actors Guild award for lifetime achievement. Unable to accept in person, she asked actress Julia Roberts (1967–) to accept the honor in her place. While Hepburn's acting was highly appreciated in her lifetime, she would probably rather be remembered as UNICEF's hardworking fairy godmother. We find large Venus in celebrities, comedians, chefs, wine connoisseurs, fitness trainers and the people in hospitality.
