Joan Collins

Divorced: 4 times

The British actress Joan Collins had already enjoyed a long, successful career before joining the cast of Dynasty in 1981 as the scheming Alexis Colby. However, that role made her a superstar, and her presence on the show is widely credited with contributing to its success. Millions of television viewers couldn’t help tuning in every week to see if she and co-star Linda Evans would get into yet another catfight in a pool of mud.

She first married Irish actor Maxwell Reed in 1952, when she was 19. After divorcing him in 1956, she married singer and actor Anthony Newley in 1963, divorcing him in 1970. In 1972 she married Apple Records president Ron Kass, but their marriage ended in divorce in 1983. Collins then married Swedish singer Peter Holm in 1985, at the height of her Dynasty heyday.

The marriage ended in 1987, and she remained unmarried until 2002, when she tied the knot with Percy Gibson. The groom was 32 years her junior, and given her history, few people expected the marriage to last. However, the two have remained married to this day, and they renewed their vows in 2009.
