Joan Collins was raped by husband Maxwell Reed

British actress Joan Collins has opened up about her horrific ordeal of being raped by her future husband Maxwell Reed when she only a teenager in a documentary called 'Brave New World.'

The 81 year-old actress, who wrote about the incident in her autobiography, spoke candidly about it in the upcoming documentary, revealing she "was raped when I was 17," reported New York Daily News.

Collins recalled how she was drugged and raped by Reed. During this time, the 'Dynasty' star was an up and coming actress signed to Rank film studios in England.

Collins also described going on a date with the older Irish actor, who forced to her drink rum and coke.

Despite this, Collins said she was naive and still carried on dating Reed for a long period of time, and eventually tied the knot with him after he proposed.

"Well I better marry him because you know, he took my virginity. I really hated him, but I was so filled with guilt, that he had done this thing to me," she further said.
