James Dean Was a Victim of Minister Molestation

James Dean

Why did Elizabeth Taylor’s trademark jet black hairdo grow bigger and bigger as she grew older? Because it was full of secrets.

Taylor, who famously kept hand-written diaries throughout her entire life to be published after her death, promised James Dean that she would keep his secrets “forever” after the two grew close during the filming of Giant.

Taylor broke her promise, but we think Dean would have forgiven her considering the world’s church molestation crisis. Taylor made reporter Kevin Sessums promise not to reveal the secret until her passing.

“When Jimmy was 11 and his mother passed away, he began to be molested by his minister,” Taylor said. “I think that haunted him the rest of his life. In fact, I know it did. We talked about it a lot. During Giant we’d stay up nights and talk and talk, and that was one of the things he confessed to me.”

Was this the Rebel Without a Cause‘s secret cause, after all? We’ll never know, but it breaks our heart to think of anyone being victimized by a trusted adult. Bummer, man.

    The churches anti abortion policy is a crisis.. so Indias population went up 180 million in the past ten years.. what is that the population of mexico.. no wonder afganistan chants death to america and kills 23 people everytime a minister in florida burns a koran.. but the churches hugest scandal is that a recent study was conducted on americans from 22 years old to 33 years old over 18 years and the proof is in church goers are 50% more likely to become obese.
