New book claims Elizabeth Taylor slept with Ronald Reagan… and engaged in threesome with JFK
For a lady married eight times (two of which were to the same man), it would be fair to say Elizabeth Taylor enjoyed the company of various men throughout her her glittering showbiz career.
And now it has been claimed that not only did she have a string of romances with fellow screen stars – but also with Presidents Ronald Reagan and John F Kennedy.
The former liaison allegedly occurred when she was a teenager, with the latter encounter reportedly taking place as a threesome with actor Robert Stack, according to an explosive new biography.

Elizabeth Taylor: There is Nothing Like a Dame – penned by authors Danforth Prince and Darwin Potter – is an unauthorised biography that explores the colourful love live of the late National Velvet star.
According to the book, the actress confessed to a friend after she was seduced at Reagan’s Hollywood Hills home, saying: ‘Reagan was treating me like a grown woman, and that thrilled me.

‘We sat on his sofa and I could tell he wanted to get it on but he seemed reluctant to make the first move. I became the aggressor.
‘After a heavy make-out session on the sofa, we went into the bedroom.’
The book claims Regan [born in 1911] was 36 at the time of the alleged encounter, which means it would have been 1947.
That would put Taylor, born in 1932, at just 15-years-old.

The authors claim it was a nude dip in JFK’s pool that would turn into a threesome between the actress, the politician and actor Robert Stack.
Prince and Porter allege Taylor also counted Peter Lawford, Errol Flynn, Tony Curtis, Paul Newman and Frank Sinatra as lovers – her romance with Ol’ Blue Eyes becoming one of the more serious.
