Hollywood Legends Pushed Collins Into Failed Therapy
10 January 2012 8:06 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »
Veteran actress Joan Collins spent two months in therapy after movie legends Paul Newman, James Dean and Marlon Brando were astonished to discover she did not see a shrink.
The British star snubbed the Hollywood tradition of undergoing sessions with a psychiatrist when she first became big in Tinseltown in the 1950s.
After revealing her secret to her movie star pals, Collins felt pressured to agree to a bout of therapy but abandoned finding herself after realising she was completely sane.
She tells Ok! magazine, "I don't have to drop names, but I will. Paul Newman, James Dean, Marlon Brando - all friends I was hanging out with, couldn't believe I wasn't in therapy. Stewart Stern, who wrote Rebel Without A Cause, said to me, 'Joan, you must go to therapy. It's very important to find yourself.'
"So I went for two months. And I discovered that I am completely, inherently sane and non-neurotic." »
After making this announcement, the completely sane Miss Collins applied more makeup onto her face with her usual trowel.
Miss Collins, didn't I try to commit suicide over Warren Beatty?
Is that Jackie in the photo? Talk about bad plastic surgery, she always appears as if she's sneering.
Bitch please, she is 79 today.
I love Joan, she's bitchy and that's just her nature. And I think she uses some kind of elastic band pull-ups on her face to tighten everything up, then pops on one of her many fabulous wigs.
Adore Joan. A class act all the way. I got to meet her once after a performance of Legends (and Linda Evans). She was everything I was hoping she'd be and more.
Joan was a slut?
I SAID WAS SHE A SLUUUUUUUUUUT?
I believe her.
How many slutty golddiggers go to therapy?
R6 looks like Kate O'Mara.
That IS Kate O'Mara.
Joan's not insane.
What is her best role in a movie?
Name the movie.
Someone run to the kitchen and tell Mrs. Gunnerson to open up the good caviar, and tell the staff to hold my calls. I'm going to my painting studio to prepare for the board meeting. DenverCarringon WILL be acquired by Colbyco or my name is not Alexis Morrell Carrington Colby Dexter!
Crystal Allen in The Opposite Sex. Best lazy Sunday hangover movie ever.
Her accent is appalling in The Opposite Sex.
Her best movie role was an early 90s BBC TV movie where she played a washed-up glamourpuss.
Her early role in the original Star Trek, about 45 years ago.
