Her Own Woman

Katharine refused to behave like a typical Hollywood starlet, wearing trouser and old jumpers when off set, and refusing to wear make-up all of the time.  On one occasion when the costume department at RKO stole her slacks (because they found slacks to be uncouth and boyish), Hepburn walked around the studio in her underwear, refusing to put her clothes on until she got her trousers back.
