Joan Collins loves wigs


Joan Collins is obsessed with wigs.

The 80-year-old actress has been wearing wigs for more than 30 years, and she doesn't understand why there’s a negative stigma attached to fake hairpieces when extensions are so widely accepted.

She told the new UK issue of HELLO! Magazine, "I love wigs. It's ridiculous that extensions are acceptable on practically every actress and model yet some people turn their noses up at wigs."

The star ? who has worn fake hair since the 1980s when she first appeared on hit TV show Dynasty ? dons a red wig for her latest role in Molly Moon: The Incredible Hypnotist, in which she plays a criminal.

She explained, "It was so much fun to film. In one scene I spent the entire day scrambling out of an armoured truck filled with gold bars wearing boots, skin-tight black leather trousers and a long red wig."

Joan ? who’s married to theatrical company manager Percy Gibson ? wears her sexy outfit with confidence and thinks most people her age wouldn’t be as brave.

She said, "I said to the director, 'You know most actresses over 40 couldn't do this’."
