4. Katharine Hepburn

Even before we saw this epic shot, we knew Katharine Hepburn was rad.

After all, she loved sport, wore trousers long before other women did, won four Oscars for Best Actress, shunned Hollywood publicity and lived to theĀ grand ol’ age of 96.

So the fact that she’s skating at that age just makes her doubly cool. Apparently these photos were taken of Hepburn when her nephew Jack Grant convinced her to give it a try. What a badass!
