Dynasty diva Joan Collins hates getting political but yeah, she’s in favor of gay marriage
Caught a little bit of Joan Collins on last night’s episode of Happily Divorced and at 79, she’s still quite the diva.
Collins did an interview with Advocate.com to promote the episode but was determined to shy away from any political questions – including any about gay marriage.
Since she has been married five times, Collins was asked her thoughts on the so-called ‘sanctity of marriage’ which gay people are often accused of sullying.
‘I’m not one of [those people],’ Collins said. ‘… You’re getting into a political situation here, which I really don’t want to get involved in.’
But she continued anyway.
‘Obviously, I have so many gay friends. Many of them are married, many of them have children, many of them are in civil partnerships. I also have many heterosexual friends who are in the same situations. It’s up to the individual.’
To play a fictionalized version of herself on Happily Divorced, Collins said the key is to exaggerate all the things I normally do.
‘Flamboyant hand gestures, exaggerated line readings,’ explained the Dynasty diva. ‘Everything just a little bit bigger.’
