Grace Kelly's Secret Double Life

- Page 1

If anyone ever lived the Hollywood dream, it was Grace Kelly.

Born to humble beginnings in a Philadelphia family, she managed to become a world-famous movie star and later a princess. In just 5 years and 11 films, she became a true Hollywood icon who is still remembered by fans to this day.

But behind the glitz and glamour were secrets that nearly tore her perfect life apart, including love affairs with some of Hollywood's leading men.

In one of the star's biographies, the secrets she kept from the public and her own family were finally revealed.

Kelly's career seemed to come out of nowhere, with the actress becoming a star almost instantly thanks to roles in Hitchcock classic like Rear Window and Dial M for Murder.

One of her biographers, Wendy Leigh, credits part of her success to the way she aggressively pursued her male co-stars. Clark Gable, Bing Crosby and William Holden are among the men Kelly is rumored to have had flings with.

Of course, all these romances made young Grace very unpopular with Hollywood's wives. Director Henry Hathaway's widow summed her up this way:

"Yes, she wore white gloves, but she was no saint."
