A former lover of Robert De Niro has revealed that the Raging Bull actor used to wear sock during sex.
Carole Mallory, who starred in the Stepford Wives, revealed that she and the 69 year-old thespian had a two-week fling in 1975. She then added, “During lovemaking, he never stopped looking in my eyes. He had a butterfly tattoo. I realised it matched his flighty spirit. So did the fact he left his socks on.”
Mallory and De Niro reportedly met in 1975 at the Chateau Marmont, and then had a 14-day affair. These revelations, plus more, are divulged in her new book, Picasso’s Ghosts, which also sees the former model discuss her engagement to Pablo Picasso’s son Claude.
However it didn’t end well for the pair as she stated, “The following year he married Diahnne Abbott … I would have appreciated a phone call.”
The 71-year-old also then divulged information on numerous other lovers who she partook in a dalliance with. When talking about Peter Sellers Mallory stated, “He had hair everywhere. He reminded me of a panda.” Whilst when talking about Richard Gere she praised his “gymnastic skills,” and noted, “He was Valentino in the flesh.”
Later in the book she discusses the reasons why she is attracted to famous men, stating, “I was jilted by Claude Picasso, and I spent most of my life trying to shore up my bad feelings about myself. A lot of my seeking out famous men was to prove I was OK. I felt terribly wounded when he jilted me. I felt validated by celebrities.”
