'Homewrecker' Marlon Brando loved only one woman who took revenge over his philandering ways by sleeping with his son
According to William J. Mann's biography 'The Contender: The Story Of Marlon Brando’, the actor didn't believe in monogamy but loved one woman more than others
As a young actor, Marlon Brando teamed up with his pal, Christian Marquand, to chase women.
As per a new biography, Brando delighted in being sexually 'fluid' decades before it had become fashionable in Hollywood. Marquand and Brando were also lovers and even though they would share a girl in bed, they would "afterward keep going themselves." According to William J. Mann's biography 'The Contender: The Story Of Marlon Brando’, the late actor had affairs with many actresses such as Marilyn Monroe, Ursula Andress, and Rita Moreno.
As reported by DailyMail, according to Mann, Brando preferred women but swung both ways. "He was insecure about many things but sex was not one of them," Mann added. Mann also explores Brando's claims that he only "went after women to make up for what my mother failed to give me and to spite my father."
Brando was neglected by his abusive and alcoholic parents and Mann explains that this is why he looked for loveless sexual relationships.
By the age of 21, Brando was bringing back a new girl almost every night and was juggling many women and some men at the same time. A girlfriend of his shared, "There would be 30 girls — I'm not exaggerating — at a party all trying to get Marlon for themselves. I called them a ship of fools."
There was only one woman he claimed he truly loved and that was Jill Banner who was a part-time actress. She was around 20 years his junior when he had an affair with her in the 1970s. According to a friend, her secret was that she never chased after Brando when he would walk away. She also shared an antipathy to monogamy as Brando did.
Over time, she also became very tired of Brando's behavior and had an affair with his 18-year-old son, Christian, as revenge. Brando would take a "perverse pleasure" in being a homewrecker and would love the challenge of seducing his friends' wives.
Mann shared, "[Brando] was lonely and envious of those who weren't" but would flee from commitment.
"I had a lot of affairs. Far too many to describe me as a perfectly normal, reasonable, intelligent person," Brando had once shared.
