I found alot of this to be shocking! Anything with Gandhi and just that most of these people are so famous and had such terrible fetishes.

Yeah, there were a few surprises in there lol

Joan Crawford was also a bisexual. I read that she got with a few women in her time. She even propositioned Marylin Monroe once...or actually did have her ( I can't remember exactly ).

I'm surprised Tallulah Bankhead wasn't mentioned. She was probably the only actress who was very open about her sexuality ( she would have been mentioned in quite a few of those categories ).
