Joan Collins hot new book ‘Passion For Life’

October 14, 2013

Having had five husbands, I guess I should know a thing or two about marriage. And you may be surprised to learn that I still believe strongly in the institution.

But no couple, I believe, should imagine that they’re going to live happily ever after. There will always be arguments and pitfalls, particularly if you stupidly marry too young. Or simply choose the wrong person.

As for me, I’ve made some terrible mistakes. Indeed, the sad truth is that most of my husbands turned out to be convincing liars.

Looking back now, I can see that my first four husbands all put me down, criticised and insulted me far too often. And although only the first was ever physically violent towards me, words often linger longer than bruises.

Was it my own fault that I brought out such a perverse streak in these men? Or was I just a lousy chooser?

For most of my teens, I had no interest in boys or men at all. I knew absolutely nothing about them and had never even seen a photograph of a naked man.

By the time I was 17, though, I decided I was ready to emulate my more worldly classmates at drama school in London by ‘doing it’, as they described making love. But there were two problems: I had no idea what ‘doing it’ entailed — and the first man I developed a serious crush on turned out to be gay.

Soon afterwards, I was lucky enough to get the lead in I Believe In You, a British movie, which also starred the actor Laurence Harvey.
