Sweet, loveable Audrey or a Badass in disguise?

Audrey Hepburn World War 2 Badass:

Hepburn worked for the Dutch Resistance by transporting secret messages in her ballet slippers.

While a ballerina in Nazi-occupied Europe young Ms. Audrey Kathleen Ruston was actually an agent for the Dutch Resistance and she performed in a series of secret ballets called “black performances”to raise money for the rebels and their underground war against Hitler.

His only weakness was ballet. And maybe Russia helped a bit.

In one instance, she was actually rounded up by the Germans and forced into a truck, but narrowly escaped when the Nazis pulled over. Another time, she volunteered to rendezvous with a British paratrooper hiding in the forests of Arnhem. Her cover: Go on a stroll through the woods “innocently picking wildflowers,” which she used to successfully bribe a German soldier with who later questioned her.

That’s right, young Audrey Hepburn outfoxed the freaking Wehrmacht … through cuteness.
