She made sure that Pippin had a custom-made bathtub to sleep in, though at times, Hepburn would let her sleep in her bed. Pippin was quite attached to her and would even follow Hepburn to the supermarket.
Her relationship with her unusual pet both amused and amazed those around her.
The animal would rip up the curtains, torment visitors, bite people, and of course, would throw...well...you know what chimps tend to do. According to his friend Lamar Fike, Elvis didn't treat his chimp the best.
Clearly, Elvis did not want to care for his pet. Sadly. the poor creature died while still in the care of Elvis and his staff.
Hepburn, The Deer Lover
Audrey Hepburn also had an unusual pet. She got along on set so well with her baby deer co-star for the film "Green Mansions" that she took her home with her. Hepburn named the deer Pippin, or just “Ip” for short.
Though she may have looked like a delicate woman, Hepburn was more than up for the challenge of raising a deer.
Elizabeth Taylor's Weird Eye Diagnosis
Elizabeth Taylor’s famous beauty was partly because of a genetic cause. After she was born, a doctor informed Taylor’s parents that their baby daughter had a condition called lymphedema-distichiasis syndrome.
The syndrome (which is caused by the FOXC2 gene) was responsible for her double rows of eyelashes, which did enhance her stunning eyes.
More Medical Issues
Having two beautiful sets of eyelashes had its appeal, but unfortunately, the syndrome can also come with a slew of other problems. Taylor reportedly suffered from medical issues her entire life, this has obviously also affected her career.
It is thought that her death (which was from congestive heart failure) was most likely linked to her lymphedema-distichiasis syndrome.
