4-stars for the delightful good time spent with Ms Hepburn chatting about this, that, and the other thing, an occasional gem of wisdom popping out now and then almost just by accident. The best stories are the little ones, such as the one about the only guy who stopped to help her and a friend change a tire by the side of the road, and was so busy shitting bricks over his dumb luck that he refused to believe she really was who he thought she was, even after she showed him a piece of mail with her name on it. I love imagining her digging around in the car to find something to prove to this guy he wasn't nuts, and the story he must have told about that the rest of his life. Mostly, I adore her distaste for whiners and refusal to become one herself-- which is probably why she could be found, at 70-some years old, doing this:

Katharine Hepburn proving she really is as freakin' awesome!!! as I expected.

5-stars for skateboarding in a parking lot-- I love this woman. I want to be like her when I grow up.
