Witty, tomboy-ish, and independent, Katharine Hepburn was an actress before her time. She was nominated 11 times for the Oscars and won three of them in her rich 60 year acting career from the 1930s – 1990s. Why is Katharine TENACIOUS!? In her early career, she was labeled “box-office poison” because of her off-screen reputation of having a strong personality and non-conforming to how she should act as a women and in the roles she played in Hollywood. In the times when women were still playing the stereotypical roles, Katharine was playing strong minded women characters who wore slacks, and spoke with a smooth accent.
If you watch her interviews, you can see she is unapologetically herself and speaks her mind. She never hesitates and seems to only speak the truth.
She has become one of my top women role models! Today I honor you Katharine Hepburn for being an example for women!
Watch the 5 minute clip of her interview! She is brillliant and passionate about humankind.
