Ray Martin reveals Audrey Hepburn tried to seduce him in the early ’90s

He has been a household name in Australia for 50 years, winning five Gold Logies during his remarkable career.

And it seems that even Hollywood royalty fell for journalist Ray Martin’s charms.

The veteran broadcaster, 74, revealed on 2Day FM’s Grant, Ed & Ash on Thursday that Audrey Hepburn once tried to seduce him in the early ’90s.

Ray made the surprising revelation when radio presenter Ed Kavalee asked if he had ever been ‘given the wink’ by a celebrity guest.

He responded: ‘Audrey Hepburn was on [The Midday Show] once, and I introduced her and said that when I was 15, I first saw her in Breakfast at Tiffany’s and that I’d fallen in love with her. 

‘Anyway she came out and sat down and took the applause and reached over and touched my knee and said, “It’s never too late”.’

2Day FM’s Grant Denyer was clearly impressed by the anecdote, yelling: ‘Oh, boy!’ 

‘She was a good sort!’ Ray replied with a laugh. ‘And then she walked out of my life.’

According to Ray, the interview took place in the early ’90s when Audrey would have been in her sixties.

The Belgian-born actress died aged 63 from appendiceal cancer at her home in Tolochenaz, Switzerland on January 20, 1993. 

She had been diagnosed with the disease the previous year. 

Audrey, arguably one of the most recognisable stars from Hollywood’s Golden Age, appeared in movies such as Breakfast at Tiffany’s and My Fair Lady.
