She knew she wanted to become an actress from her early age.
Little indicated that Kelly would have such an exceptional career: Catholic school, strict upbringing, parents' disapproval for their daughter's plans.
Despite the parents' disapproval, Grace Kelly appeared on the screen, having been a model as well as a theater actress before. At age of 22 she got her first film role.
Grace Kelly is considered one of the most beautiful actresses in history.
