Stars Come Out For Freud

More than 400 mourners including U2 frontman BONO and funnyman STEPHEN FRY turned out to pay their respects to late writer/broadcaster SIR CLEMENT FREUD at his funeral on Friday (24Apr09).
The former politician, whose grandfather was legendary psychiatrist Sigmund Freud and his brother artist Lucien Freud, died earlier this month (15Apr09) at the age of 84.
Freud was laid to rest with a memorial service in London on Friday afternoon, which would have been his 85th birthday, with members of the entertainment industry mixing with politicians and journalists to pay tribute to the veteran star.
British prime minister Gordon Brown read an address during the service.
Freud is survived by his wife of 59 years, Jill, five children - including PR guru Matthew and successful broadcaster Emma - and 17 grandchildren.
