Elizabeth Taylor in an interview 14 years ago for POV revealed a secret about James Dean that she made writer Kevin Sessums promise not to reveal until after her death.
"When Jimmy was 11 and his mother passed away, he began to be molested by his minister. I think that haunted him the rest of his life," alleged Taylor. "In fact, I know it did. We talked about it a lot. During Giant we'd stay up nights and talk and talk, and that was one of the things he confessed to me."
This was according to Sessums for a new piece in the Daily Beast.
