Quickies: Liz Taylor And Michael Jackson’s Post-9/11 Road Trip & Blake Shelton’s Anti-Gay Tweets

  • On September 10, 2001, Michael Jackson played a concert in New York City and his two good pals, Liz Taylor and Marlon Brando, sat in the audience. On September 11th, NYC was attacked by terrorists and friends of the now-deceased stars claim the threesome hopped in a car and started driving cross-country. Claims Vanity Fair magazine, “Brando allegedly annoyed his traveling companions by insisting on stopping at nearly every KFC and Burger King they passed along the highway.” Praise be, this has all been explained for our amusement via Taiwanese animation.

  • The upcoming TV lineup is packed with shows starring ladies! Yesss! I’m setting my DVR to record half of these shows right now. [Vulture]
  • Oksana Grigorieva has dropped her domestic violence claim against Mel Gibson, apparently as an “olive branch.” Ugh, I don’t understand these people. [TMZ]

A Love Letter From Marlon Brando

In 1966, Marlon Brando penned this letter of admiration to a stewardess who helped nurse a sick patient back to health during a flight. Yes, friends, one of the most beautiful men to walk the Earth also wrote love notes. He was a romantic! Some of you may find it unsophisticated (his salutation is “Dear Lady” and some of his grammar is sketchy), but if I got this letter from Marlon Brando, I would probably dissolve into a puddle of goo upon reading. Especially the part where he points out her “gothic aspects.” Swoonworthy. Check out the full transcript, after the jump. [Letters of Note] Keep reading »

Marlon Brando And His Kitty

Those of you who read regularly know I have an issue with cats … especially men with cats. Marlon Brando may have just changed my mind. Or maybe the typewriter just canceled out the cat? Either way, holy hot. And check out more famous dudes who were mega-hot in their youth. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Don’t You Dare Use Marlon Brando’s Name Without Permission

When it comes to celebrities and clothing items, it’s common practice for designers to honor their favorite stars by naming select pieces from the collection after them. But Marlon Brando‘s people aren’t very happy about a leather jacket that pays homage to him; they are very angry at Joe’s Jeans for their two transgressions. It seems the denim brand never requested approval to name their leather jacket The Brando, and they labeled one of their e-newsletters “The Wild One,” the title of one of Brando’s films in which he wears a leather jacket. Now, Brando Enterprises has slapped the company with a lawsuit, claiming Joe’s is “infringing and misappropriating the Brando name.” Keep reading »

Marlon Brando Was Jackie Kennedy’s Rebound

Sigh, now this is a celebrity rumor I love to hear. The forthcoming book Bobby & Jackie: A Love Story by C. David Heymann details the alleged affair between Jackie Kennedy and her brother-in-law Bobby. That’s not the good part. While researching his book, Heymann says he came across unpublished passages from Marlon Brando’s autobiography (which I have read and it is glorious) Songs My Mother Taught Me which reveal Brando had an affair with Jackie a year after John F. Kennedy was murdered. According to Heymann, Brando wrote:

“She kept waiting for me to try to get her into bed. When I failed to make a move, she took matters into her own hands and popped the magic question. ‘Would you like to spend the night?’ And I said, ‘I thought you’d never ask.’”

Heidi Fleiss Airs Her Dirty Laundry

Being a single gal is fun and can even allow you to get a little extra freaky! But sometimes the pendulum swings the other way — not knowing where your next piece of ass will come from can leave you in a sad dry spell, and even the professionals aren’t immune. Heidi Fleiss, the infamous Hollywood madam, had it all. And by “it” we mean every A-list actor in LA. Not only did she score the top booty, they paid her well to do it too! At the height of her career she had Marlon Brando, Jack Nicholson, Charlie Sheen, and a Porsche. In 1997, she was thrown into an unsexy pair of handcuffs, put in jail, and left penniless for her escort service. Now, at 42, the former working girl has opened her own shop in podunk Pahrump, NV. Strangely enough, even though prostitution is legal in Nevada, she’s not putting the rump in Pahrump. Instead of a ring of call girls, she’s in charge of the spin cycles at her little launderette cleverly called “Dirty Laundry.” She’s cleaning clothes and cleaning up her act while living in a mobile home with 20 parrots she saved from a closing pet store. “I love those birds more than I’ve ever loved any man,” Heidi said in a recent interview. “It’s been two years since I had sex and I don’t care if I ever do it again.” Sigh, we’ve all been through a sexless rough patch and it’s hard to pull yourself out — even if you’re the Madam Fleiss (and especially if you’re a crazy bird lady). But, Heidi, you just have to get back up on the man-horse and ride! Everyone in America knows you can do it. [NOTW]

Directing Movie Sex Scenes

We know that sex scenes must be fairly awkward for actors — you try to looking like you’re turned on while an audience of cameramen, technicians, craft services, etc., watch — but what’s it like to be the person who decides who caresses/touches/kisses whom, as well as when and where? Director Michael Winner told the Observer, “[Sex scenes] weren’t uncomfortable for me except when Marlon Brando insisted on wearing pants and Wellingtons when he was meant to be naked having sex with Stephanie Beacham in an erotic scene in The Nightcomers. The cameraman kept calling ‘pants’ or ‘Wellington boots,’ indicating they were in the shot. The minute I said ‘cut’ I was on the floor crying with laughter. The scene came out superbly.” [Guardian.co.uk] Keep reading »
