I suppose people could blame me for ending Audrey Hepburn’s career. She knew her potential. If she had kept working, the parts were there for her, and her success professionally would have continued at a high level for years. But she wanted to be with her family. She wanted a private life. And she couldn’t bear the thought that she might fail as a mother. It was too important to her.

I remember her long hair, her bare feet, which as a little boy I often caressed while she put her makeup on. Whenever she had to go to a dinner or a cocktail party, she would always say, “Oh, if only I could only stay home and eat in the kitchen with you.” 

I remember school days, cramming for exams for which she probably fretted more than I did. She would test me before bed and again in the morning, waking up with a sort of sleepy head only adults enjoy. I remember her elation at good grades, her support and positiveness for the “not so good ones”. I remember sleepovers on weekends, when we would chat with the lights out, during those precious few moments before one falls asleep. We would talk about feelings and plans and people and things, but in that way that is specific to that darkness, like two souls suspended. 

I am often asked what it was like to have a famous mother. I always answer that I don’t know. I knew her first as my mother and then as my best friend. She wanted to be a mother very much so when she had the opportunity, she did it to the fullest extent of the law. Audrey Hepburn’s son, Sean Hepburn Ferrer +

Miss Audrey Hepburn & "Famous" by Star-News (November 17, 1963)
Famous, a Yorkshire terrier, the pet of screen luminary Audrey Hepburn, is probably the most widely traveled canine in the world. So far, Famous has racked up some 375,000 air miles, all on deluxe flights. He accompanies his mistress wherever she goes, whether on vacation or business trips entailing the making of motion pictures. He accompanied her to set each day, watched the filming with an appraising and professional eye. He’s something of a “pro” himself, never having been known to bark, cough or sneeze while a scene is being filmed.  
… Paris seemed like home to Famous. He was born in a suburb of the city, St. Cloud, in 1956. Mel Ferrer, Audrey’s first husband, saw him in a pet-shop, was captivated by him, and purchased him as a gift for his wife. He was already named Famous before he made his home with Mel and Audrey, for that is his monicker  on his French pedigree papers. 
Famous likes to keep on the move. He wishes, at times, that he could accompany his master Mel on many of the trips he takes in connection with his television production company. But he knows that his duty is to remain wherever Audrey’s temporary home is, and to guard his mistress while Mel is away on business.

Joe, we can’t go running around town with a hot princess!

I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and… I believe in miracles. ©

"I love making movies. When I’m not working, I miss it like I’d miss chocolate or a concert. But I could survive without working and I couldn’t survive without my family. I adore to be with my husband and children. So there you are. If they want to make movies on my front lawn, then I’m available. And that, I suppose, is why my private life has always taken precedence; why I’ve done so few films in recent years." Audrey Hepburn
