Sean spencer is dating
"Haven't seen anybody like that." As it happens, Sean is standing right over his shoulder.
I see her on the cover of magazines and in ads for the Academy Awards.As a way of commemorating the 10th anniversary of her death - and as a means of raising money for her foundation - Sean has decided to put up for auction a small collection of her treasured personal belongings, including memorabilia from some of her classic films.One item in particular is sure to fetch a very high price - a hand-embroidered Givenchy ball-gown designed to symbolise her transformation from waif to goddess in the hit film Sabrina.She lavished attention on him and put her career on hold to be near him when he was young.Though she made a few screen appearances in the Seventies and Eighties, the last of her major films was Wait Until Dark, which was made when Sean was seven. And she couldn't bear the thought that she might fail as a mother.The auction will be held at Sotheby's in New York on April 21.
"We've kept all of her things from the day she died," Sean says.
"She always surprised people when they saw her working in the kitchen.
There was absolutely nothing pretentious about her and that showed when she was preparing a meal because her tastes were so simple.
"There are lots of photos and clothes and works of art. She knew so many people and went to so many places.
I don't want to sell any of it, but I thought it would be nice to pick just 10 items for this auction - one for each year - and give the Fund a boost." Probably no one knew Audrey as well as Sean, whose relationship with her was always close.
"I suppose people could blame me for ending Audrey Hepburn's career. If she had kept working, the parts were there for her, and her success professionally would have continued at a high level for years. It was too important to her." According to Sean, the whole idea of childhood was sacred to her - largely due to her own tragic experience during the war.
