This week an eBay auction of Patty Hewes's wardrobe goes live, and ends July 19. It's a first for me. But I took this step as a means to fight for awareness of something from which millions suffer — the toxic stigma and discrimination around mental illness. It's a story I know well because its pain has touched lives very close to me.
Over the past 30 years, I have built up a significant costume collection — from Jenny's Field's handmade nurses uniform from "The World According to Garp" (my first film) to the evening gown covered with 10 pounds of beads in which I swept down Norma Desmond's staircase in "Sunset Boulevard;" from Alex Forrest's black leather coat to Cruella DeVil's astounding frivolities; from Albert Nobbs's bowler hat to Patty Hewes's brilliant reinvention of the power suit.
