Cary Grant wore women’s panties. Not boxers, or even briefs. Panties.

He claimed that he wore them because they were more comfortable, according to “An Affair To Remember,” a memoir written by one of his lovers.

It gives you a whole new perspective on the guy, doesn’t it?

Next time you see him fleeing that helicopter in “North by Northwest“ or playing a suave, handsome spy in “Notorious,” you‘ll know that beneath that perfect male exterior?

The dude was wearing panties.

We shouldn’t be shocked.

Chances are that every one of us is keeping mum about at least one quirky little secret that would surprise the folks who think they know us best. (Except for me, of course…)

But it does make me wonder about the other male celebrities we love to fawn over.

What little oddities are they hiding?

Maybe every man on the silver screen is wearing panties!

The minute he got to Hollywood, did Brad Pitt toss out his boxers and head over to Victoria’s Secret? Could Robert Downey Jr. be wearing lacy women’s undergarments under that Iron Man suit?

I guess we won’t know till somebody writes that book.

In the meantime, I’m just going to assume they are. It’ll make watching any movie they’re in that much more interesting.
