Screen icon Audrey Hepburn has been honoured by America's POSTAL SERVICE - with her very own stamp.

Hepburn is the ninth actor, actress or director to be honoured in the LEGEND OF HOLLYWOOD series, which began in 1995 with Marilyn Monroe.

The stamp was dedicated yesterday (11JUN03) by Jennifer Love Hewitt and Hepburn's son SEAN FERRER at a ceremony in Los Angeles at the CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL, one of the charities supported by the AUDREY HEPBURN CHILDREN'S FUND.

The stamps feature Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Previous stamps in the Legends of Hollywood series include James Dean, Humphrey Bogart, Alfred Hitchcock, James Cagney, Lucille Ball and CARY GRANT.

The Audrey Hepburn stamp will go on sale at post offices outside Los Angeles tomorrow (12JUN03).
