Audrey Hepburn and her fawn named PippinBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/audrey-hepburn-and-her-fawn-named-pippin
Actress Audrey Hepburn was called the woman with the eyes of a fawn. And she loved animals very much and many films with her were shot with animals. You may have seen online photos of the actress with a cute fawn. We tell a touching story of their friendship.
In 1958, during the filming of the film "Green Mansions" (GreenMansions), a little Fawn named Pippin became the actress' shooting partner. According to the plot of the film, Pippin was supposed to be a friend of the heroine.
Audrey Hepburn really loved animals, and it was not difficult for her to make friends with a "shooting partner". It was only necessary to give the little doe milk from a bottle for a while.
Audrey took Pippin to her home for a while, so that they got used to each other, and the beast learned to follow his partner on the screen. It took quite a bit of time, and the baby, whom the actress called IP, almost became a real member of the family.
It is said that, despite the fact that a special place was set aside for Pippin in the house, he slept exclusively with Audrey.
Almost all the pictures from Pippin that have survived were taken by Audrey's friend, photographer Bob Willoughby. He recalled that when the actress took the fawn with her to the store, there was a sensation.
There were a lot of pictures taken from Bambi: at home, in the supermarket, and even at a party. Someone, perhaps, will frown, they say, it's not good to treat an animal like that, it's not a toy. But in fact Audrey took care of the pet and fooled around with the IP only in front of the camera.
Both Hepburn's dogs and Mel's husband got used to the doe. But when the shooting was over, the already grown female was given back to the trainer, and he returned Pipin to the zoo. That's such a nice story.
