Audrey Hepburn's son shares insider stories of life with a Hollywood icon
FREE Catholic Classes
Growing up with Audrey Hepburn could have been something wonderful, with life in the spotlight all the time. Hepburn is still one of Hollywood's most celebrated icon and legendary film actress even after her death. Surprisingly though, life was not abnormal for her son, who claimed that as a child, she was just "mum."
"There was a big gap between her private life and public life," revealed Luca Dotti, Hepburn's 46-year-old son with the Italian psychiatrist Andrea Dotti, during his appearance recently on This Morning.
MUNTINLUPA, PHILIPPINES (Catholic Online) - "I didn't realize until after her death she was such an icon. When she was alive she was always caring about her charities and us. There was a big gap between her private life and public life," revealed Luca Dotti, Hepburn's 46-year-old son with the Italian psychiatrist Andrea Dotti, during his appearance recently on This Morning.
Dotti wrote a book in tribute to his mother, "Audrey at Home, Memories of My Mother's Kitchen," which includes Hepburn's personal recipes and anecdotes from her life inside the home.
Audrey Hepburn is still an icon even 22 years after her death from a rare cancer in the appendix. Coming from Luca's stories about mom, Hepburn lived a wonderful life surrounded by people she loved, doing the things she was passionate about and engaging deeply in the charities of UNICEF.
He added that he did not realize that the actor friends his mom has over to the house often were also legendary.
"When I was growing up there were movie stars coming to the house all the time but we weren't aware they were famous, when they came over they were just introduced as her friends. It was only later that I found out Julie Andrews was Mary Poppins, or who Roger Moore was, they were just her friends."
The National Portrait Gallery is featuring an exhibition on the celebration of her life and memory this summer.
