Current Entertainment Weekly cover lady Tina Fey shares the spotlight with a white feline, as the two recreate Audrey Hepburn's iconic turn as Holly Golightly in the 1961 film, "Breakfast at Tiffany's".
Fans of the movie will note that the cat in the film was actually orange, and appeared as a ginger and white tabby on the theatrical poster. Hepburn has reportedly said that the climactic scene where she has to throw Cat into a rainy street was "the most distasteful thing she ever had to do on film."
While nine cats were used during production of "Breakfast at Tiffany's", Orangey is credited in the role of Golightly's kitty, Cat. Orangey, who has his own Wikipedia page, was a professional animal actor with a 15 year career that spanned over film and television. He was the first feline to win two Patsy Awards, the animal equivalent of an Academy Award.
