Sean gets teary with Audrey Hepburn, France 1987

Not many people associate Sean Connery with sentimentality or being in anyway soft but he is, big time. He’s also a total hard-ass because, hey – he’s human. Until recently him getting choked up at the end of his BAFTA Fellowship speech would be at the top of my emotional list. Having to gather yourself in front of a few hundred people after Billy Connolly’s ripped this piss out of you isn’t easy; it’s when Sean goes to thank the British Academy and has to pause that gets me every time!

It came as a real shock to see Sean full on crying in a recently uploaded video where he and Audrey Hepburn are awarded a Commandeur de L’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres for their significant contributions furthering the arts in France and throughout the world. They received the award from Deputy culture minister Philippe De Villiers in Paris on 6 March 1987.
