Gene Hackman Had An Affair With Cloris Leachman


I love Cloris Leachman. I really do. I just have a very tough time imagining her performing any kind of sex act. So, when I saw yesterday some reports about her new tell all book and how she tells all about the people she had sex with, I decided to take a pass. Taylor Swift is right. If someone talks about sex, you are going to picture them naked at least for a second. Cloris Leachman in my head having sex with someone is not a fun way to spend a Friday.

But, for all of you I sucked it up to see which celebrities had joined her in bed. To my surprise one of the passages that was released to the NY Post described how she had sex with Gene Hackman.

“As we moved into the main course, it was as if a cosmic wind enveloped us. Some giant space magnet was pulling us together,” Leachman said. “We didn't finish the meal. We went upstairs, flew into bed and made love. It was epic.

“And the next morning, Gene went back to his film and I went back to mine. I haven't seen Gene since that night, but I remember him well.”

Apparently this happened in the 1970's. I was too lazy to see what movies both of them were making in San Francisco at the time, but I did happen to notice that Gene Hackman was a married man throughout the entire decade of the 1970's. Cloris finalized her divorce in 1978 so she may have been single or maybe this was what finally broke up her marriage for good. Who knows. I do know that Gene stayed married to his wife for many years after this epic sex with Cloris Leachman.

I'm sure his former wife and the three kids he had with her are thrilled to discover this in Cloris Leachman's book.

yuck! I know but I also remembered this weird ABC mow she did called
"Someone I Touched" about vd which is what we called stds back in the day. I looked it up & good old Cloris even sung the "Theme" Song!
Quite a gal, our Cloris!

The only movie I can think of that featured both of them is Young Frankenstein (1974).

"He Vass My BOYFRIEND!!"

Frau Blucher and the blind man? Oy...

No one should be squeamish about imagining Cloris Leachman having sex. Back in the day she was smokin':

I live in Memphis, and a friend who lives here was a massage therapist during the time Gene Hackman was here in town filming The Firm. He wanted a massage one day after filming, and someone gave him my friend's contact information. She met him at the apartment where he was staying downtown for the massage session. She said he kept trying to expose himself and kept making sexual advances the entire time.. I'm trying to remember the whole story. Anyway, she politely declined and when asked if she could come back for more sessions, she said, "No, thanks," and then promptly got the hell out of there. I just looked at his IMDB profile, and I'm fairly certain he was married at the time. Also, he was in his sixties in the early nineties... All, I'm trying to say here is, eww.. just eww... SAY NO TO OLD PEEN!

Cloris Leachman's name sounds too similar to Clorox bleach for me, and I'm allergic to bleach, so every time I see a mention of her I sart to compulsively itch. It actually has nothing to do with Cloris herself, though.

I really liked Cloris until she played a cantankerous old woman on Malcolm In the Middle, then she just became annoying.

When she was on DWTS I also found her over the top humor annoying.

Now this story from her book, again I find her revelation annoying.

Cloris please sit down, and act like a classy woman for a change.

Cloris was Miss Chicago in the 1946 Miss America pageant. seriously

Judi said...

Love them both. Huge talents. It happened once over 30 years ago. So what? Doubt that the Hackmans would care at this point.

I loved her on "Malcolm" and she was absolutely genius in "Beerfest."

I don't mind the thought of Cloris Leachman naked so much but it sounds like she's written the book in a style that just screams for Fabio on the cover.
