The legendary Dynasty actress Joan Collins has revealed that she was raped. She spoke about the horrible act for the first time, in a shocking confession for the new documentary Brave Miss World.
Collins revealed the attack occurred when she was just 17-years-old, when she was on a date with Maxwell Reed. Reed later became her first husband.
The actress/author and all around power woman said “The next thing I knew, I was out flat on the sofa in that living room and he was raping me. And what he had given me was a drug. He had drugged my drink. It wasn’t my fault but I didn’t know, I went out with him.”
Joan said that she felt incredibly guilty and that she blamed herself because he called her after the act and she went out with him again. She also confessed that she agreed to marry him (after a few months of dating) because he took her virginity: “I really hated him, but I was so filled with guilt, that he had done this thing to me.”
The amazing documentary, staring the current Miss World, is aimed to encourage other woman to speak out if they have experienced similar situations.
