Paul Newman Allegedly Bisexual

Paul Newman Allegedly Bisexual

It’s totally tasteless, and perhaps not even true, but writer Darwin Porter is out to make some bucks by exposing the sexual secrets of a man who can no longer speak up for himself. But let’s put morality aside for a second, and allow me to revel in this fantasty. Paul Newman – in my opinion, the sexiest actor who ever lived – was allegedly bisexual, and had affairs with Marlon Brando and James Dean – at certain points also among the sexiest actors to ever live. Says the gossip:

Paul Newman was a bisexual, and had many on-location affairs – these are some of the claims writer Darwin Porter says were made by Marlon Brando. Porter, in his book Paul Newman: The Man Behind The Baby Blues, alleged he interviewed Brando about Newman before the former passed away in 2004.

“He never fooled me. Paul Newman had just as many on-location affairs as the rest of us, and he was just as bisexual as I was. But, where I was always getting caught with my pants down, he managed to do it in the dark,” Contactmusic quoted Porter, who further quoted Brando in his book, as saying.

The author told the Globe that he had been following Newman’s secret sex life after first meeting the acting legend in 1959.

He alleged the late star, who had been married to actress Joanne Woodward for 50 years, had been in bed with icons like Grace Kelly, Natalie Wood and Marilyn Monroe, and even had a gay affair with James Dean.

C’mon, imagine with me… You know you want to:
