Elizabeth Taylor Reveals Secret About James Dean

In an interview for POZ magazine conducted in 1997, Elizabeth Taylor revealed a shocking secret about her former Giant co-star James Dean.

She told the reporter; “I’m going to tell you something, but it’s off the record until I die. OK?”

“I loved Jimmy. I’m going to tell you something, but it’s off the record until I die. OK? When Jimmy was 11 and his mother passed away, he began to be molested by his minister.”

“I think that haunted him the rest of his life. In fact, I know it did” she said of Dean. “We talked about it a lot. During ‘Giant’ we’d stay up nights and talk and talk, and that was one of the things he confessed to me.”

WOW, talk about taking a secret with you to the grave…

James Dean was always known for being a dark and mysterious creature. That was part of his onscreen appeal.

Dead died in a car accident in 1955 at the age of 24. His life and death have been the stuff of Hollywood legend ever since.

Taylor died of congestive heart failure early Wednesday morning.
