Regardless of the measurement you use, Joan Collins is a living icon.
Her glitziest, flashiest days are likely behind her as she nears her 90s, but that doesn’t mean she has stopped having fun and flaunting her body confidence.
Many ‘new’ superstars might learn a thing or two about grace, poise, and self-control from Joan Collins. What a life she has led—and is leading—is amazing.
The role of Alexis Carrington Colby in the serial opera Dynasty is possibly most recognized for the English actress from Paddington, London.
Dynasty made Joan a household name and was the most watched television show in the nation in 1984. At the time, she was receiving $15,000 per episode. 21 million homes watched each week to see what her egotistical and crafty character would come up with.
The first influential woman on television, she was. For that, I took a lot of flak. She is such a snob, a vixen, and a ballbreaker! Joan told CBS in 2019: “I was simply defending myself as a strong, independent woman, you know.
Collins amazingly still works in the entertainment industry nearly 70 years after her debut on screen.
She appeared in Tomorrow Morning, The Gentle Sex in 2022, and the currently-filming In Bed with the Duchess, according to Wikipedia.
She also makes heavy use of social media.
Storms caused a lot of the US to experience unusually cold weather last month, but for Joan Collins, it was all about the heat.
The renowned actress reportedly used the holiday season to her advantage to publish a photo of herself practically sizzling next to her 57-year-old husband, Percy Gibson.
I was able to swim and eat a fantastic supper because of Adam and Evie Bricusse and the 82°F temperature in Beverly Hills.
There were numerous compliments on Collins’ stylish leopard print bikini from admirers. The actress was absolutely radiant even though she was getting close to 90 years old.
Collins has been married five times in total. Actor Maxwell Reed and she were married for four years in her first union. Anthony Newley, a musician, was the subject of her second marriage. She then wed businessman Ronald S. Kass, and Kass was followed in marriage by Peter Holm, a Swedish singer.
“I regret some of my marriages; I much too frequently committed that error. I was stupid. I don’t regret any of my decisions since I have two wonderful children—Tara and Alexander—from my marriage to Tony [Newley] and one beautiful daughter—Katy—from my marriage to Ron [Kass]. I honestly regret marrying the Swede [Peter Holm], Joan admitted last year.
Collins asserts that she and Percy have become the closest of friends. She talked about how they fell in love throughout the pandemic.
She said, “Being in lockdown has made me realize how strong our tie is. I like travelling on vacation, meeting new people, and hosting guests at the villa. Percy and I are currently the only ones left, though, because of the restrictions. It’s amazing that we participate in criminal activity.
Whatever anyone may say, Joan Collins is a legend and an icon who despite her advanced age still maintains a youthful appearance.
