Audrey Hepburn was one of the most beloved and memorable actresses of the 20th century. The characters she brought to life covered a wide range of personalities: a sheltered princess, a New York party girl, a librarian turned fashion model, a blind woman fending off criminals, and so many other empowered, colorful female characters. With such an array of exciting roles, it's fun to wonder which classic Hepburn character you are. After all, she so wholly embodied her characters onscreen that they were both totally individual, yet universally relatable.
In case you just so happen to be the kind of person who is curious about which zodiac signs certain Old Hollywood stars were, Hepburn was a Taurus through and through. But one doesn't have to be a Taurus to be similar to one of Hepburn’s onscreen characters. In fact, Hepburn's most recognizable characters can totally be categorized into the 12 signs of the zodiac, so there's one for everyone.

Aries are confident, passionate, and independent. Because of their determination and impulsive nature, they tend to take on more than they can chew, yet rarely ask for help. They would like to complete the task all by themselves, thank you very much. Aries are most like Wait Until Dark’s Susy Hendrix. Susy is a blind woman, who successfully defends herself from a group of criminals who have broken into her house to retrieve a bag of heroin of which Susy accidentally came into possession. Aries are just as cunning, resourceful, and independent as Susy, who breaks all the lights to put the criminals in total darkness and give herself the final advantage.

Tauruses are reliable, patient, and loyal. They value their relationships above almost all else in their lives; however, Tauruses can also be stubborn and jealous in said relationships. So, of course, it makes sense that Tauruses are most like Two for the Road’s Joanna Wallace. Two for the Road tells the story of a married couple in a nonlinear fashion, intercutting scenes from their early, happy days, with the tense, complicated nature of their current state of marriage. During the film, Joanna must learn to forgive past mistakes and evolve into a better version of herself if their marriage stands a chance, which is something stubborn Tauruses can totally relate to. Hepburn also wears fabulous mod outfits throughout the film, something any beauty-obsessed Taurus will love.

Geminis are gentle, affectionate, curious creatures. They are so friendly and cheery that people tend to be completely enchanted on their first encounter. However, Geminis are also nervous, inconsistent, and flighty. One never truly knows what Geminis will do from one minute to the next. Obviously, Geminis are Breakfast at Tiffany’s' Holly Golightly, the infamous Givenchy-wearing, chain-smoking, heart-breaking party girl. Holly Golightly may be the character with whom Hepburn is most frequently associated, which is due in large part to her impeccable wardrobe, yet it's Holly’s charismatic personality that doubtlessly makes her such an enduring character. As charming as she is frustrating, Holly floats through life making friends and avoiding commitments. There may actually be no other film character more like Geminis as a whole than Holly Golightly.

Cancers are sensitive and sympathetic signs. They are highly connected to their own emotions, as well as the emotions of others. Occasionally, this connection to their emotions can turn negative, as they can become moody, needy, and insecure. That said, Cancers are most like Sabrina's dreamy and romantic Sabrina Fairchild. Sabrina is the daughter of a rich family’s chauffeur and just so happens to be in love with the playboy son of the rich family, but, when her emotional needs aren't met, she falls in love with the other cynical son of the rich family. This is pretty by the book for Cancers, as they tend to follows their feelings no matter how much trouble it may get them in.
