Vanity Fair: On The Road

"A road trip across America stopping at every Kentucky Fried Chicken diner along the way does not sound like an A-list event.
"But this particular car was carrying Marlon Brando, Dame Elizabeth Taylor and Michael Jackson.
"The unlikely threesome began driving across America in a rental car after planes were grounded in the aftermath of the terror attacks on New York on September 11, 2001...
"Brando, whose weight by this stage in his life had ballooned, was said to have irritated the other two by stopping at almost every Kentucky Fried Chicken and Burger King restaurant en route..."

The Daily Mail on a story in Vanity Fair told by a former personal assistant of Liz Taylor, Peter Mandelson Mendelson.
The Mail do however offer a warning; "None of the three, of course, is around to substantiate or dispute the bizarre story."
But I read it in the paper!!! etc etc

  1. From the Michael Munn school of Hollywood stories.
    He has a biography of the recently deceased Tony Curtis coming out, incidentally. I wonder if Curtis was a close friend and confident of Munn's who told him lots of secrets...
