Marlon had a long list of sexual conquests, which included Cary Grant, Montgomery Clift, and James Dean. In the 70s, he said:

Like a large number of men, I, too, have had homosexual experiences, and I am not ashamed. I have never paid much attention to what people think about me. But if there is someone who is convinced that Jack Nicholson and I are lovers, may they continue to do so. I find it amusing.
