Joan Collins - Hollywood Legends Pushed Joan Collins Into Failed Therapy

Veteran actress Joan Collins spent two months in therapy after movie legends Paul Newman, James Dean and Marlon Brando were astonished to discover she did not see a shrink.
The British star snubbed the Hollywood tradition of undergoing sessions with a psychiatrist when she first became big in Tinseltown in the 1950s.
After revealing her secret to her movie star pals, Collins felt pressured to agree to a bout of therapy but abandoned finding herself after realising she was completely sane.
She tells OK! magazine, "I don't have to drop names, but I will. Paul Newman, James Dean, Marlon Brando - all friends I was hanging out with, couldn't believe I wasn't in therapy. Stewart Stern, who wrote Rebel Without A Cause, said to me, 'Joan, you must go to therapy. It's very important to find yourself.'
"So I went for two months. And I discovered that I am completely, inherently sane and non-neurotic."
