Anne answered: “I have a fanbase amongst gay men, I don’t know what that proves, but most of my fans are women, most of them are older women.
“I think some of them are hoping I’m a lesbian, and I have to sort of let them down gently.”
The star described how as a teenager while her friends lusted after The Partridge Family star David Cassidy, she was more interested in Lee, who was 34 years her senior and died in 1987.

She continued: “Actually right from my teens, I was always into older men, to the concern of my mother.
“Everybody else my age went through a David Cassidy stage, I didn’t go through a David Cassidy stage. I went straight into a Lee Marvin stage.”
Nowadays however her ideal man is 74-year-old Tommy Lee Jones, actor who starred in smash hit movie Men in Black.
