I don't see James Dean in the list. He should be in there.

ChewSep 19, 2010

these actress and actors are wrong. He never dated Jim Neighbors. The story behind them no pun intented was that his friends sent out a wedding invite for a false party. The invite said to join the two in marriage making rock`s name rock pile ha ha. Rock said that women were unclean and he dated many more men than women

Is there any truth to the rumor that Rock Hudson and Lolly Vegas (lead singer and guitarist for the group Redbone - Come and et Your Love, Witch Queen of New Orleans)were especially close in the mid-70`s?

Those relations with women were fabricated, hope you all know that.

Rock Hudson will always be my favorite actor. I loved him in McMillan and Wife and with Doris Day. Peace be with you Rock

ROCK HUDSON was a top star of the 50s/60s/70s.His best film LAST SUNSET made in 1961 with CAROL LYNLEY and Kirk Douglas A romantic hero on screen but a very sad figure after 1966 in a horrid private life.

LouiseApr 19, 2008

Mr.Hudson was such a romancer, but i never thought he would be gay..i love him so much gay or not, he will remain in my heart forever.No-one can ever replace him ever. He is and will always be the wonderful person and gorgeous looking guy in history. RIP love you lots xx

BRAD STENDERAug 31, 2007
