Dame Joan Collins wore baseball hat to Selfridges

December 16, 2018

Dame Joan Collins wore a baseball hat as a disguise whilst Christmas shopping at Selfridges.

The 85-year-old actress has revealed she will often dress down in a bid to go incognito in public, but unfortunately her famous voice lets her down because it’s so “recognisable”.

Appearing on ‘The Jonathan Ross Show’, she admitted: “I went out the other day in complete disguise while I went through Selfridges looking for Christmas presents and I had the baseball hat on, no make-up, an old Mac and jeans and only one person recognised me and that was an Italian lady and that was because I spoke.

“They don’t recognise me but my voice is quite recognisable.”

However, dressing in disguise isn’t new for the award-winner, who said: “I’ve been doing it for years, it’s my go to way of getting around, going to Kensington High Street.”

Joan says that she would love to star in a cartoon film because of her noticeable voice.

She continued: “Which is why I’m surprised I’ve never been asked to do a character in a cartoon film.

“I did one about 10 years ago but I would love to be in one of those.”

When Jonathan suggested: “Well maybe if there is a James Bond cartoon and they’re looking for a lady Bond, we could do it that way?”, she agreed: “That would be good wouldn’t it.”

The ‘Dynasty’ star also gave her opinion of whether there should be a female James Bond.

She said: “We are all gender neutral now”, before pretending to audition, saying: “The name is Bond, Jane Bond.”

‘The Jonathan Ross Show’ airs Saturday 15th December from 10.05pm on ITV.
