In a new interview with Vulture, Quincy Jones confirms that those Marlon Brando gay rumors may be true, as he says that Brando would have slept with anybody
“[Marlon] Brando used to go cha-cha dancing with us,” Jones reveals. “He could dance his ass off. He was the most charming motherfucker you ever met. He’d fuck anything. Anything! He’d fuck a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye.”
Interesting to note: Jones only lists inanimate objects and men.
Since the interview was published on Tuesday, Pryor’s widow confirms the dish to TMZ. They report:
Richard would have no shame about Quincy’s comments. She says the comedic legend was always very open about his bisexuality with friends, and documented it extensively in diaries. Jennifer says she’ll publish them later this year.
As for Richard hooking up with Brando — she says, “It was the ’70s! Drugs were still good, especially quaaludes. If you did enough cocaine, you’d fuck a radiator and send it flowers in the morning.”
Jennifer says she has no doubt Richard would be cracking up if he heard Quincy spilling the tea.
Brando was quoted in the Gary Carey biography Marlon Brando, the Only Contender, as saying: “Like a large number of men, I too have had homosexual experiences and am not ashamed.”
The sex life between Dean and Brando is one that has been well-explored already. The book James Dean: Tomorrow Never Comes reports that Dean and Brando had a secret sadomasochistic relationship fueled by the Godfather star’s ego and insatiable desire for control.
It alleges the two men would meet up for master-and-servant-style sex sessions where Dean asked to be burned with cigarettes.
