WHO’S WHO IN HOWARD HUGHES’ HOOTER HAREM

Globe - - CELEBRITY NEWS -

TY­COON Howard Hughes bought a movie stu­dio — then col­lected a harem of screen sirens, bed­ding iconic beau­ties Ava Gard­ner, Katharine Hep­burn, Bette Davis and Gin­ger Rogers!

Hep­burn was famed for her long af­fair with mar­ried star Spencer Tracy, but she had an in­tense fling with the sex-fiend fly­boy Hughes.

The pervy pi­lot won Katharine’s af­fec­tion by buzzing her in a bi­plane as she was tak­ing a golf les­son at the Bel-Air Coun­try Club!

They ended up in bed, au­thor Ka­rina Long­worth writes in her just-re­leased book, Se­duc­tion: Sex, Lies, and Star­dom in Howard Hughes’s Hol­ly­wood.

“Howard was the best lover I ever had,” Hep­burn boasted. “We weren’t in­hib­ited peo­ple. He was not shy about sex. He wasn’t short of testos­terone.”

Famed for build­ing a bra to hold Jane Rus­sell’s huge 38D boobs, he was in­ter­ested in the brunette beauty’s chest sim­ply to make his Western The Out­law a suc­cess.

But he was ac­tu­ally ob­sessed with screen god­dess Ava, who said, “I couldn’t get rid of him for 15 years, no mat­ter who I was with or I mar­ried.”

He stalked her even when she was with hub­bies Mickey Rooney and Frank Si­na­tra!

In one jeal­ous rage, she re­vealed Howard beat her and she grabbed a bronze bell and cracked him in the mug, split­ting his fore­head open.

In 1936, Hughes pro­posed to Gin­ger, but he was too much of a con­trol freak and cheater for her taste.

“Howard wanted to get him­self a wife, build her a house, and make her a pris­oner in her own home while he did what he pleased,” she said. “Thank heav­ens I es­caped that.”

Fresh off her 1938 hit Jezebel, mar­ried Bette plunged into a romp with Hughes at a rented love nest in Mal­ibu.

“I was the only one who ever brought Howard Hughes to a sex­ual cli­max, or so he said at the time,” Davis bragged.

“I be­lieved it when he told me that. It may have been his reg­u­lar se­duc­tion gam­bit.

“Any­way, it worked with me, and it was cheaper than buy­ing gifts.”

Later, germ-fear­ing Howard turned into a recluse and died at 70, shun­ning any hu­man con­tact.
