嘉芙蓮·協賓(英語:Katharine Hepburn,1907年5月12日~2003年6月29日),生於美國康涅狄格州,美國國寶級電影女演員,全世界唯一一位四奪奧斯卡影后者。她是美國電影與戲劇界的標誌性人物,在荷里活的傳奇持續超過60餘年,並且橫跨數種不同表演類型,一生共獲得過4次奧斯卡最佳女主角獎,為至今最高紀錄,以及共計12次奧斯卡獎提名(全部為最佳女主角)。1999年,美國電影學會將協賓評為美國影視史上最偉大的女演員。

嘉芙蓮拒絕接受社會對女性的期望。她敢言,自信,活躍好動,並且早在女性流行穿褲子前已經開始穿褲子。她年輕時曾結婚,但後來便獨自生活。和史賓沙·德利西有著26年地下情,藉著這種打破傳統的生活方式,螢幕上的獨立女性角色,令她成為了20世紀現代女性的典範。

Katharine Houghton Hepburn (May 12, 1907 – June 29, 2003) was an American actress of film, stage, and television. Known for her headstrong independence and spirited personality, Hepburn was a leading lady in Hollywood for more than 60 years. She appeared in a range of genres, from screwball comedy to literary drama, and received four Academy Awards for Best Actress—a record for any performer. In 1999, Hepburn was named by the American Film Institute as the greatest female star in Hollywood history.

Hepburn famously shunned the Hollywood publicity machine, and refused to conform to society’s expectations of women. She was outspoken, assertive, athletic, and wore trousers before it was fashionable for women to do so. She married once, as a young woman, but thereafter lived independently. A 26-year affair with her co-star Spencer Tracy was hidden from the public. With her unconventional lifestyle and the independent characters she brought to the screen, Hepburn came to epitomize the “modern woman” in 20th-century America and is remembered as an important cultural figure.
