Once upon a time, Hollywood legend had it that Marlon Brando approached a young Jackie Collins at a party and was highly complimentary about her perky 15-year-old body.

Miss Collins has alluded to the sexually charged incident before without ever really admitting that it went any further than some harmless flirtation, saying in 1995:

"He stared straight at my 39in chest — men often talk to my chest — and said, "That's a great looking body you have, little girl. It was such a thrill for me because it was the most amazing introduction to Hollywood. I had only been there a week and there was my favourite movie star coming on to me."


Turns out Brando's involvement with her 39-inch-chest was more than previously thought, with the elderly Miss Collins, 72, now admitting to "a very brief but fabulous affair" in the summer of 1953, just before her 16th birthday.

Speaking again to Britain's favorite daily, she now talks of an explicitly sexual relationship with the noted lothario "at the height of his fame and glamour." Adding that she "didn't know any better and he was very thin then."

"I was so young," Collins said in a later video, which you can view above, reminiscing of her affair with Brando. "He was staggeringly gorgeous. But then you saw him later and it was like ... ugh, ok."


She went on to say, "I was a complete wild child. What I found was that married men are the ones that are the horniest."

"...They would literally, literally chase me around tables. I mean, it was crazy. It was absolutely crazy. You get such an insight into the male psyche — especially if you're smart and can handle it."

At the time of their relationship, Marlon Brando would have been 29 — an age difference that would have landed him in prison for statutory rape.

Says Collins: "I saw him on and off for a while and then it was over. He was a great character."
