In a recent biography of Marlon Brando, writer Darwin Porter 'exposed' the actor's homosexual celebrity affairs.
Marlon Brando's new biography paints 'The Godfather' actor in a new light, as it reveals how he slept his way around Hollywood. The biography also claims that he slept with some of his male directors and co-stars. The biography, 'Brandon Unzipped', by Darwin Porter claims that the bisexual Academy Award winner engaged in a sexual relationship with James Dean, Cary Grant, Montgomery Clift and Sir John Gielgud.

In the book, Porter says: "James Dean was one of Brando's most lasting yet troubled gay relationships. They had a relationship for a number of years but it was always turbulent. At one point they had a big stand-up fight at a party in Santa Monica, California, witnessed by dozens of people. His affair with Montgomery Clift was a long and enduring relationship."
He continues to say that: "Marlon had a bit of a fling with Cary Grant, spending a weekend with him in San Francisco. Cary was also pursuing the actor Stewart Granger, who became another of Marlon's conquests. Marlon admired John Gielgud but they didn't have a relationship, rather, Brando performed sexual favours for Gielgud and told friends, 'I owed it to him because he really helped me with lines in Julius Caesar.'"
Brandon expressed his homosexuality in his own 1976 autobiography, stating: "Like a large number of men, I, too, have had homosexual experiences, and I am not ashamed." The actor was married three times and died of lung disease at the age of 80 in July, 2004.
