Mel Ferrer Facts

Prior to his marriage to Elizabeth Soukhotine, Ferrer had a scandalous relationship with 29-year-old interior designer/shipping heiress Tessa Kennedy, who was still married to her first husband Dominick Elwes.

Wife Audrey Hepburn did not want to be separated from her husband while filming Funny Face (1957), so filming of the Paris scenes was timed to coincide with Ferrer's filming of Elena and Her Men (1956).
