So, apart from sleeping around with half of Hollywood's leading ladies and seeminly all the gay ones, Marlon Brando also had a long term relationship with his old buddy, comedian Wally Cox. After Brando's death, Cox's ashes were mixed with his, and were together scattered in Tahiti and Death Valley, California.
All this is revealed in a new book "Brando Unzipped" by Darwin Porter, who was a neighbour and friend of Tennesse Williams, another of Brando's secucers.
According to the book, Brando once admitted that he had never been happy with a woman, saying "If Wally had been a woman I would have married him and we would have lived happily ever after".
Are we shocked? No. Hollywood has never been known for its sexual conservatism. Are we surprised? No. probably the handsomest (in his early years) and masculine of film stars would have been hit on my thousands of people, male and female, during his prime and and that famous casting couch undoubtedly applied to males as well as females.
