'The Godfather' actor Marlon Brando passed away on 1st July 2004, and now a former lover has come forward to reveal their secret love affair in the 1950s.
With the recent passing of acting legend, Marlon Brando, on Thursday 1st July 2004, Greek actress Irene Papas has finally come forward to reveal her long secret love affair with 'The Godfather' actor. The 77-year-old star of 'Captain Corelli's Mandolin' spoke to Italian 'Corriere Della Sere' newspaper, to talk about how she and Brando kept their relationship out of the public eye, as: "we didn't want to share with anyone this love that wasn't a true secret but a private one".
Papas explained: "I loved Marlon Brando. I really cared about him. We had a love story. Let's call it a long relationship. Perhaps I'm doing wrong to speak about it, now that he's not around to contradict me, but I'm confessing it precisely because, as of today, he's in the absolute, far from everybody, belonging to everyone."
