It was Hollywood profiles like this one that made the studio executives at RKO go nuts; what were they to do with Katharine Hepburn (1907 – 2003)? She simply refused to take all matters Hollywood with any degree of seriousness; although new to the movie colony, she was imperious; refusing to play the Hollywood publicity game as it was designed - when a reporter asked:
"'Is it true that you have three children?'"
"- she replied -'I think it's six...'"
Such responses would simply incite the usually complacent fan magazine journalists to fire back, and it seemed only natural that they would want to have the final word as to who Katherine Hepburn really was:
"Few of the biographical facts, as supplied by Miss Hepburn when she burst upon Hollywood, are closely related to the truth. She is not an heiress. She has only one husband and no children at all...She is not very pretty. Her face is bony. Her voice is rather harsh."
