Q&A Exclusive Celebrity Interview
ACTRESS JOAN COLLINS


"A Woman Who Tells You Her Age Will Tell You Anything"Chic in manner and dress, as we have seen her in photos, television and movies, Joan has been an unforgettable impression of art that sort of stays with you. She’s soft-spoken, elegant, stunningly gorgeous and ageless. I noticed that when I spoke about our incredible front cover and feature story of Actress Joan Collins, I seemed to get a devilish smile from men and a corner of an eye look from women.

There is no doubt that Joan is controversial but she is also a survivor, as she has written, "My life has changed radically since I started Dynasty. The stardom that I never tried to attain as a young actress I have now. How long will it last? - Who knows? This the toughest of professions. Very tough, it's like the flavor of the month, it changes rapidly.
Only the strongest, the cleverest and the most resilient survive -but survival is not the only objective."

Joan Collins is first and foremost an actress. But she is also a best selling author, and accomplished producer, a successful entrepreneur and a devoted mother.  Whatever people may think or want to believe there is no doubt in my mind that there is only one, Joan Collins. Her career has surpassed the imaginable and reads like a Hollywood novel. Ladies and gentleman, my intimate chat with Joan.


Place: An afternoon in London / a morning in Connecticut via telephone.  Phone rings... "Hello? Is this Joan Collins" ...
