Audrey Has Breakfast

A well-known fact about the making of "Breakfast at Tiffany's" is that Audrey Hepburn had a terrible time filming the opening scene because she didn't like the taste of the pastry she needed to eat while she looked in the window.

How could anyone not like pastry? The only thing I can think is that it may have had something strange inside -- like marzipan. Lots of people don't like marzipan.

Anyway, I remember when I first saw the movie thinking she looked very glad to toss away her uneaten breakfast. I also remember thinking, "That's how she stayed so thin!"

In case you've never had the pleasure, here's the original trailer from the film:
