Whatever standard you choose to use, Joan Collins is a living legend.
It’s fair to say that as she approaches her 90s, her most glamorous, flashy days are behind her, but that doesn’t mean she has stopped having fun and showcasing her body confidence.
Many ‘new’ superstars should take a cue or two from Joan Collins regarding grace, poise, and self-discipline. Amazing woman, what a life she has led and is leading!
The Paddington, London-based English actress is perhaps best known for playing Alexis Carrington Colby in the soap drama Dynasty.
Dynasty established Joan as a global icon, and in 1984 it was the most-watched television program in the country. She was making $15,000 per episode at the time. Every week, around 21 million homes tuned in to see what her selfish and cunning character would come up with.
She was the first powerful woman on television. I received a lot of criticism for that. She is such a ballbreaker, such a vixen, and so snobbish! I was just defending myself as a strong, independent woman, you know,” Joan said to CBS in 2019.
Almost 70 years after her first on-screen appearance, Collins astonishingly still has a job in the entertainment business.
According to Wikipedia, she appeared in Tomorrow Morning, and The Gentle Sex in 2022, and another movie called In Bed with the Duchess is currently in production.
Additionally, she uses social media extensively.
Large portions of the US endured exceptionally cold weather last month thanks to storms; however, when it came to Joan Collins, it was all about the heat.
According to sources, the legendary actress took advantage of the holiday season to release a picture of her practically sizzling next to her 57-year-old husband, Percy Gibson.
Thanks to Adam and Evie Bricusse and 82°F in Beverly Hills, I could swim and enjoy a delicious meal.
Collins’ chic leopard print swimwear attracted a lot of comments from admirers. Despite approaching 90 years old, the actress was delightfully radiant.
Overall, Collins has been married five times. Her first marriage lasted for four years to actor Maxwell Reed. Her second marriage was to singer-songwriter Anthony Newley. She then wed businessman Ronald S. Kass, and Kass was followed by Swedish pop star Peter Holm.
“I regret some of my marriages; I made that mistake far too often. I was a fool. Since I had two amazing children—Tara and Alexander—from my marriage to Tony [Newley] and one stunning daughter—Katy—from my marriage to Ron [Kass], I don’t regret any choice. Last year, Joan stated, “I genuinely regret marrying the Swede [Peter Holm].
Collins claims that she has developed the closest bond with Percy. She disclosed their romance during the pandemic.
Being in lockdown has helped me appreciate how solid our bond is, she remarked. I enjoy hosting visitors at the villa, going on vacation, and interacting with people. However, due to the constraints, Percy and I are the only ones left now. The fact that we are accomplices in crime is fantastic.
Whatever anyone may say, Joan Collins is a legend and an icon, and she still looks incredible for her age.
