Welch: "Elvis Lost Sex Appeal With Age"

Veteran actress RAQUEL WELCH confesses to a crush on late music legend ELVIS PRESLEY, but insists he lost his sex appeal with age. The 66-year-old, who starred alongside Presley in the 1964 movie Roustabout, recalls meeting the singer before his death in 1977 and was stunned to find he less attractive, reports New York Post's Page Six. She says, "He was more packaged. His clothes were not the same, his hair was obviously dyed now, and it was sprayed into place... It was a whitewashed, cleaned-up Elvis. They took all the sex out of him." Welch also was not a fan of Presley's famous white suit. She says, "He looked almost like Liberace."

I agree with the first comment. Welch is being so rude. I've been a fan for many years and never ever heard of Elvis having any interest in her. Possibly a woman scorned. Elvis was always beautiful to me.

How can she say his hair was obviously dyed - he was dying it in the 50's and it was dyed when he made Roustabout. I don't recall seeing her with grey hair -what does she use? If he was wearing his stage wear, that was for show. He didn't wear jumpsuits off stage and was far removed from looking like Liberace. Even at the end Elvis was stunning. A very sad old woman, bitter after all these years.

WHO CARES ABOUT WHAT RAQUEL WELCH HAS TO SAY ABOUT THE LATE GREAT ELVIS PRESLEY?YOU CAN TELL HOW OBSESSED SHE IS WITH IMAGE AND LOOKS. Elvis was a good ol southern boy, loved to eat,etc,but he also had arthritis and severe edema which was part of his heart condition. LEAVE ELVIS ALONE!HE WILL ALWAYS BE ONE OF GOD'S GREAT GIFTS TO THE PLANET AND I LOVED HIM FAT OR SKINNY

Who cares what Raquel Welch has to say? Obviously you losers do or else you wouldn't have commented. Elvis abused his body and died a bloated overweight junkie. Raquel still looks beautiful at 67 years old.

I will never forget Ms. Welch wearing an extremely low cut dress to her own daughters wedding some years past. Who does she think she is to be commenting on Elis's dyed hair and how he looked in the 70's?This 66 year old past starlet needs to take a look in the mirror at herself. What movies or plays has she stared in lately? And, why on the 30th anniversary of Elvis, the "Kings" death does she have to make comments like this? Perhaps she is trying to get some kind of attention and recognition of some kind. She has certainly made an "idiot" of herself.
