It’s been nearly 10 years since Hollywood star Eartha Kitt died on Christmas day in 2008 at age 81 from colon cancer. Now her daughter is speaking out about the loving relationship she shared with the screen icon.

Kitt McDonald Shapiro, who wrote a personal essay about her famous mother that was published by Closer Weekly Monday described how Kitt easily befriended some of the most recognizable men in Hollywood, all thanks to her magnetic personality.

“She was close to Orson Welles, and she was like a sponge around him because she was so drawn to his intensity and his incredible knowledge of many different subjects,” explained Shapiro. “People often thought they were lovers, but she said they never were. It was more of a mentorship.”

Welles wasn’t the only movie star to be impressed by Kitt.
