Oh, I did learn something today that I didn't know...

Alan Bates was Bi-sexual...somehow that piece of gay history had slipped under my radar; either that, or he wasn't famous enough in this country to be much gossiped about. Apparently, he had many public and long relationships with women, but he also had some significant gay relationships including UK celebrities like ice skater John Curry and actor Peter Wyngarde. I've always liked Bates as an actor, and in his salad days, he was definitly very tasty. And he'll always be remembered for his erotic, fireside nude wrestling scene with Oliver Reed in "Women in Love".
