No One Saw This Coming From Amber Heard

Raquel Welch Says She's Too 'Independent' To Marry Again

Raquel Welch Screen icon Raquel Welch is adamant she won't ever walk down the aisle again, because she's too "independent" to wed for a fifth time.

The 71-year-old beauty has been married four times - for five years to agent James Welch until 1964, to producer Patrick Curtis for five years until 1972, and in 1980 she began a 10-year marriage to Andre Weinfeld.

Welch wed her fourth husband, Richard Palmer, in 1999 and the pair have been separated since 2008 - but the Hollywood star is adamant she won't become a bride again.

She tells Britain's Elle magazine, "I'm just not suited for it any longer. I love men and I love their company, but I am too independent and self-motivated.
"I'm willing to date but, quite frankly, there is a diminishing group of eligible people at my age. I don't mind the traditional roles of male and female but, as you can tell, I am a very strong minded woman. I'm sure I would be a challenge for an awful lot of men. They wouldn't want to deal with it or, if they would like to deal with it, maybe I'm just not that interested."
