Raunchy novelist Jackie Collins has lifted the lid on sleazy Hollywood producers who demand oral sex from young starlets in return for parts in movies.

The writer - whose latest book HOLLYWOOD DIVORCES is about a fictional sex-addict producer - says she knows ten producers who expect sexual favours from budding actresses.

Jackie, 64, says, "There are a lot of producers who come to Hollywood from New York just to have sex with beautiful women.

"They have no chance of getting these type of women otherwise. I know ten producers who are like that.

"And there is one famous one today who does demand oral sex from his actresses."

Collins' claims come after actress Asia Argento alleged last week (ends28NOV03) that producers had demanded to be allowed to give her oral sex in return for roles.
