He lived fast, died young and left a corpse mangled beyond recognition.Sixty years after James Dean’s fatal car crash a shocking new biography reveals the insatiable libido and tormented psyche of the Rebel Without A Cause star who slept his way to the top in Hollywood.“He would sleep with anybody to get ahead,” says Darwin Porter, author of James Dean – Tomorrow Never Comes.Famed for playing the troubled outsider, Dean drew from his own pained childhood.
In our conversation, Winters talks about acclimating to Los Angeles and the process of finding the tone of “Battle Creek,” which may be funnier than what you're expecting.
It's a tone he notes comes at least in part from his actual dynamic with Duhamel.
On the HBO series “Oz,” for example, he played a bi prison inmate for a number of seasons.
Because this was also one of the first major roles in his career and is consequently the first exposure that many people had to him, that reputation has followed him ever since.
Being ambiguous about your romantic life is one of the main reasons why gay rumors often start!
Another rule of thumb in Hollywood is that “the more private you are, the harder the rumors will fly.” Dean Winters appears to be an intensely private person – not much is known about his personal life, despite the fact that he’s been an actor since the early 1980’s and is almost fifty years old.
“That little-boy-lost look and his vulnerability became his key to stardom.“He was difficult, selfish and insecure but he made love to some of Hollywood’s greatest beauties.” Amazingly Dean dreamed of marrying Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor.
Dean met Monroe in 1955 and the pair quickly adjourned to a romantic weekend at a beachfront cottage.“He was very loving, very romantic,” Monroe told actress Shelley Winters.
“The first time I met Josh, I came in last March for rehearsal and I was lost and I was driving to the lot on Manhattan Beach and I was looking at my GPS and I literally came within a foot of running him over,” Winters too me when we sat down together two weeks ago.
“It”s like I almost killed my co-star without even meeting him.
There is also a large segment of the population that happens to think that Winters is bi for a number of very interesting reasons.
