wow wow but at quite a moment quite a statement you you'd exhausted the repertoire of the world's most beautiful female stars well um i suppose i heard in a way i mean did you think at the time you were bisexual or were you a gay man having fun i loved anyone who fancied me i came from such a strict uptight world that every time i had sex i thought whoa i'm living uh you know and i'm not how many times
00:34
did you succumb to this temptation in this late 70s and early 80s really a lot i can't start going thinking about how many people i had sex with but tons anyway a lot yeah you and paulie yates very interesting relationship because when you got together she was with bob geldart yeah and before during and after all that you were also seeing her we were very very close i must say for a long time and uh she's someone that i i adored and still adore and uh i felt
01:04
uh very bad very bad for what happened to her in the end really she's terribly terribly sad she was an incredible girl and i still miss her were you in love with her i think i was in love with her uh i adored her how did you square off bob in all this i just ignored him uh did he know about you yes did you feel guilty at all when when she married bob and you carried on singer no not at all no why i don't know um i think uh it would be for her to feel guilty not me
01:36
surely what are you doing i'm not married to bob no but you knew she was yeah but that's up to her what she's gonna do about that and did bob ever talk to you during that period when you were seeing it bob rang me up when she died and said you've got to come to the funeral and that's really the only time we've ever talked about it and he said he wanted you to speak at the funeral you know i felt i loved bob then at that moment and you know i wanted to be uh a part of it you had a relationship with the french actress beatrice dar for several
02:07
years she was the last female lover you had the the yes she was late 80s or maybe was there a little dabble after there there could have been a couple yeah a couple yeah well hang on we've got the whole of the 90s and the naughty well exactly to go through there must be something so did you carry on sleeping with women through the 90s and 90s well probably uh a couple of times yes maybe but it's interesting to me so by then you were in your head you were pretty sure you were a gay man yes i was all the way through it was
02:38
just you loved women too yeah it's lovely being with women it's completely different i was definitely gay all the way through them i can't quite explain it but um no they were all very very nice relationships i know how grotesquely unfair it is to our straight guys if you're walking around nicking all the best looking women yeah i got to have all the women and the rest of you just wank over basically that's the way the cookie crumbles [Laughter] from your late teens you were living in london and you were out and about on the gay scene yeah
03:13
you know remember uh being gay was only legal uh for seven years at that point so it was it felt like a it felt like a political thing it felt like you were it felt like freedom that must have been a pretty wild time there yes it was especially watching david uh tennant's show about nielsen yeah he was in the pub uh that i used to go to really yeah the colehern which was this leather bar i mean that's where he got two or three of his uh victims from wow so dennis nielsen one of the worst serial killers in this country's history
03:45
the victims a lot of them were like you a young gay guy in the park did strike me knew uh just recently how dangerous you know uh my life was i could be dead extraordinary then came hiv and aids yeah i discovered about it because i was actually having an affair with another actress in a hotel in london and she was in the bath and i was watching the television and this picture of this guy i used to sleep with came up and i knew
04:16
the world literally stood still and as the sound came in uh they said this and this guy is one of the first people to get the the new gay cancer so i was really horrified and in shock from then on we were immediately outcast really it was called the gay plague it was the gay cancer and you could see if you went out for sunday lunch with the family that someone would gingerly take your plate away from the table and wash it separately fair enough you thought but i mean it
04:46
just it was very isolating yeah you had a boyfriend alfo who got hiv and it developed into aids and it must have been terrifying for you and for him yeah ended your relationship i think as well i was terrified of it and of him uh at a certain point too i certainly don't think it was me at my best and what's difficult um for people to imagine now is what a
05:17
drawn out and uh uh painful and humiliating and scary death it was too do you feel lucky that you survived that period very lucky and some friends of mine who survived it and didn't have it you know were so amazing uh to their lovers and to their friends i wasn't uh i was uh scared shitless by it and uh and kind of ran in the opposite direction you
