Audrey Hepburn – The Nun’s Story


Audrey Hepburn as "Sister Luke" in “The Nun’s Story” 1959

“Although Gabrielle (Audrey Hepburn) finds it terribly hard to follow the Holy Rule, the demand for silence, the practice of humility and self-effacement and the denial of personal attachments, she becomes a novice and her long hair is shorn before she assumes the name and life of Sister Luke.”

Audrey Hepburn Gets A Haircut As Cameras Roll in The Nun’s Story

“If she had been 10 years younger, she would have cried. But Audrey Hepburn, being a mature and modern young woman, didn’t even wince much when her hair was shorn for the final scenes in “The Nun’s Story.”

In her role of a Belgian girl who becomes a nursing nun, the hair cutting is part of the ritual as the girl prepares to don her habit as a novice. Director Fred Zinnemann scheduled the Warner Brothers picture so that the very last scene was with the shears.  And in order to make sure that the job was done properly and authentically, the director put Audrey’s personal hairdresser in the habit of a nun to do the cutting in the scene. After the scene, the hairdresser made a few additional trimmings and considerable arrangements, and Audrey emerged looking for all the world like a young woman with fashionable short hair.”
