Collins: 'I Was Forced To Take Cocaine'

DYNASTY legend JOAN COLLINS is strictly anti-drugs - after she was "forced" to snort cocaine during her 1980s heyday.
The British actress was introduced to a drug "pusher" 26 years ago and became pals with him, but was unaware of his sordid habit.
And Collins vowed never to abuse her body with narcotics again after she was enticed to take highly-addictive cocaine - and couldn't sleep for 48 hours.
In an interview for Piers Morgan's Life Stories on U.K. TV, the star reveals, "I am so anti-drugs. Once somebody forced me to take some coke and it was just so horrible. I would never take drugs, I never believe in abusing myself like that, ever."
In the TV chat, to be aired in Britain on Saturday night (27Mar10), Collins also speaks candidly about aborting her child with former lover Warren Beatty when she was aged just 23.
She says, "We went to a place in New Jersey and I did it. But like everything in life, I said, 'OK, that's it, close the book, next period of my life.'"
