Script reveals Monroe skipped Breakfast at Tiffany's...<br />
<br />
A script for the classic movie Breakfast at Tiffany's that was given to Marilyn Monroe has emerged to reveal the blonde bombshell was first choice for the iconic role.<br />
<br />
But in one of the worst moves in Hollywood history, Monroe's management team advised her to reject the part which famously went to Audrey Hepburn.<br />
<br />
It became the defining role of Hepburn's career which also made her a fashion icon.<br />
<br />
The script has emerged for sale for £7,000 at Julien's Auctions and is accompanied by a scathing 'report' by Monroe's manager Edward Parone, who described it as 'empty' and 'lacking warmth and importance'.
