No.

via Pinterest.

You may not hang Marilyn or Audrey on your wall, 
unless you are related to either woman by blood.

Additionally, Miss Hepburn played a prostitute in Breakfast at Tiffany's
That would be a woman who answers "sex worker" to the last question on her 1040, hanging over your infant's changing table.

I often think when I see collections of photographs (like image one), that's stalker behavior or a tween obsession with the star. Neither are good in an adult space! What's up with that?!

That Marilyn photo in the bathroom is just an invitation to suicide.
No thank you.
But I guess it's better than one of Whitney Houston.

And you perfectly wrote the first One!!! Huh? Giant photographs of stranger movie stars in your own house???

Scary!!!!

Do all of those women who idolize Holly Golightly realize that she's a hooker? Have they even read the book or seen the movie? Doubt it.

Utter nonsense. They were Hollywood icons, of course we are going to hang them on our walls! If we base our appreciation of actors on their personal life, or the fact that they played a morally deficit character in a movie instead of on their talent, we are missing the point. As for "Holly Golightly was a hooker"... ever heard of that little film "Pretty Woman"? The actress played a part... Audrey Hepburn was not a hooker, peeps. Seriously.

Marcheline - Have you ever seen a photo of Audrey Hepburn in any other roll in someone's house? The fetishizing of that character is beyond bizarre.

No one said Hepburn was a hooker.

And why would one hang a photo of any Hollywood icon in their home? That's what Pinterest is for.

Wow - it's hard to know where to begin with "why would anyone hang (name your fetish) in their home".

People generally hang things on the wall which make them happy when they see them. Whether it's movie stars, rock bands, landscapes from Scotland, or what have you. Whatever makes people smile is usually what they hang up.

I've got a computer room lined with Bettie Page, Angelina Jolie (signed), an enormous video store poster display of "Sleepy Hollow", Jimmy Stewart photos, Kenneth Branagh as Hamlet (signed), and more.

I also have a large poster of Audrey Hepburn from "Breakfast at Tiffany's" in the hallway. Why? Because that was the movie that my parents went to see on their first date. My father died in 2008, and my mom lives far away, and it makes me feel good to remember that they went to see that movie together, back when things were just beginning for them.

So you see, there are lots of reasons why someone might want a classic film star as part of their wall decor.
