I love Cloris Leachman. I really do. I just have a very tough time imagining her performing any kind of sex act. So, when I saw yesterday some reports about her new tell all book and how she tells all about the people she had sex with, I decided to take a pass. Taylor Swift is right. If someone talks about sex, you are going to picture them naked at least for a second. Cloris Leachman in my head having sex with someone is not a fun way to spend a Friday.
But, for all of you I sucked it up to see which celebrities had joined her in bed. To my surprise one of the passages that was released to the NY Post described how she had sex with Gene Hackman.
“As we moved into the main course, it was as if a cosmic wind enveloped us. Some giant space magnet was pulling us together,” Leachman said. “We didn't finish the meal. We went upstairs, flew into bed and made love. It was epic.
“And the next morning, Gene went back to his film and I went back to mine. I haven't seen Gene since that night, but I remember him well.”
Apparently this happened in the 1970's. I was too lazy to see what movies both of them were making in San Francisco at the time, but I did happen to notice that Gene Hackman was a married man throughout the entire decade of the 1970's. Cloris finalized her divorce in 1978 so she may have been single or maybe this was what finally broke up her marriage for good. Who knows. I do know that Gene stayed married to his wife for many years after this epic sex with Cloris Leachman.
I'm sure his former wife and the three kids he had with her are thrilled to discover this in Cloris Leachman's book.
