The Power of Resilience

​She was the perfect storm of beauty, brains, and boldness. A force of nature the likes of which Hollywood had never encountered. They tried to tame her, they tried to mold her, they tried to turn her into someone other than herself, and when they tried to take her pants, she beat them at their own game, becoming one of the most celebrated women in the history of American film…

In a world were being yourself can be the most challenging part to play, the one and only Katharine Hepburn reminds us, we owe it to ourselves… to truly be ourselves… because no one else is going to do it for us.

This Woman Has My Heart

​​In her very first TV interview on the Dick Cavett show in 1973, Katharine Hepburn declared to the world with a straight face… “Cold sober, I find myself absolutely fascinating”. Immediately after she burst out in a fit of laughter.

Confident, cocky some would say, a brilliant actress and a fiercely independent woman. My love for her goes on and on and on. She holds a special place in my heart. So much so that my youngest daughter shares her name.

In my three favorite Kathryn Hepburn movies, The African Queen, Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner and, A Lion In Winter in which she plays Eleanor of Aquitaine, she displays both the strengths and vulnerabilities of being a woman. She infused each character with her distinct style and personality seamlessly blending the lines between Kate the actress and Kate the
individual. Whenever I watch her movies, I always feel that what you see on screen is exactly what you would get if you met her on the street or in a restaurant. She was always unabashedly herself.

I was talking with my son and his girlfriend about Katharine Hepburn recently and I was
surprised to hear how much they really love her movies. For them it was her energy on the screen and her natural wit and conversational style of humor that applied to them most as well as the way she always seemed so sure of herself.

I love that younger generations of movie goers can still appreciate the qualities that made her so unique.

But I suppose what I love most about Katharine Hepburn, is the way she approached her work and her life. She did not apologize for who she was, she worked hard to achieve her success, and she did not require anyone’s approval.

She is and always will be “Kate the Great”, my ultimate Bright Lighter who reminds me there is great power and freedom in being my true self and a lot to be said for shining bright.
