Actress Elaine Stritch, who is best known for her work on Broadway, has denied rumors she had an affair with Rock Hudson.

The 89-year-old Stritch is the subject of the documentary film Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me, which opened in theaters last month.

“Did we have an affair? No,” Stritch said during a wide-ranging interview with Michigan gay weekly Pride Source. “He was nuts about me, and I felt it, knew it. And I was madly in love with this gorgeous guy.”

“But I couldn't have reacted in any real way because I don't think he was truly in love with me. I think he just loved me and loved that we had fun and loved to be with me.”

“He had a good time with me. You know what I'm talking about. And there's nobody who says that gay guys don't have fun with women, because they do!”

Stritch added: “I think gay people have extraordinary humor. Extraordinary!”
