Joan Collins talks to Michael Musto for Out magazine about her mass appeal in the gay community. “Gay people love glamorous women, and I think I’m glamorous,” she explains. “And I’m not blowing my own trumpet, but I’ve been told it often enough. Also, they know I’m a nice person, haha.” Love! She also comments on the secret to her longevity in the business. “Good genes, luck, and never being carried away by the huge amount of approbation I’ve received. “Biggest female TV star in the world,” blah blah, “most glamorous” and all that. It never went to my head.” Just your girl next door type.
