Dame Joan Collins was “unbearable” to marry her “contemporary” man.
The 88-year-old actress knotted her fifth husband, 56-year-old Percy Gibson, in 2002. She “can’t imagine” a life that isn’t around him.
She said. “He’s the best. I can’t imagine a life without him. He’s the rock that connects our family.
“Thanks to God. I married someone 30 years younger than me. I couldn’t stand marrying someone of my age.”
Joan relied heavily on Percy in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic.
She admits: We were disinfecting the newspaper, I didn’t go to the supermarket. Percy went and then we disinfected everything. “
However, after visiting the United States, France and Spain with booster jabs, the screen legend is determined to “revive”.
She states: “It’s no mistake that we want to have a good time. That’s what we all deserve as people.
“People say,” Oh, we’re all suffering, we’re suffering, prices are rising, there are no truck drivers, we’re not going to heat during the winter Everyone is sitting and suffering. I believe life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving and dead. “
The actress of “Time of their Lives” considers herself an “early feminist”, not afraid to stand up in the pillow business culture of the 1960s.
She told The Sunday Times: I believed in living my life as freely as a human being. “
However, Joan admitted that he lost his job as a result of refusing unwanted progress from the producer.
She states: [of it].. “
Meanwhile, despite her advanced years, the former “dynasty” actress is not interested in retiring.
When asked if she would consider giving up her job, she smoked: Don’t ask me that question, don’t use that word, “retirement”. “
And Joan, who has two to three children in her previous marriage, thinks her thoughts on getting older are beginning to change.
She added: “As we get older, we feel that we are allowed to work in professions that require the use of older people.
“There is a perception that it is outdated. People live long and live well. Henry Mancini’s wife [singer Ginny O’Connor] I’m about 95 years old and I do disco dance every week. “
