Rocker Alice Cooper
turned down the opportunity to bed late screen star Mae West
- because he wasn't sure if the former sex symbol was truly feminine.
Cooper - who starred alongside the veteran actress in the movie Sextette
in 1978 - reveals West was very keen to romance the then 30-year-old singer and even invited him back to her trailer - an offer the star vehemently refused.
He says, "Did she come onto me? You bet she did. We ended one of our scenes and Mae whispered to me, 'Why don't you come on back to my trailer?' I said, 'Because you're 86-years-old and I'm not sure if you're a woman or not!'"
West died in 1980, aged 87.
