Actress Piper Laurie, one of the former U.S. President Ronald Reagan’s lover claimed that he was a rude, insensitive show-off in matter of heart.
Piper Laurie said that when she slept with Ronald Reagan, he bragged to her afterwards about his staying power.
When the actress complained she was unsatisfied he replied she should see a doctor – because he definitely knew how to make a woman happy.
In her memoir Piper Laurie said that she met Ronald Reagan after he was no longer married to actress Jane Wyman but had not yet begun dating his second wife, Nancy Davis.
Piper Laurie was just 18 at the time and a virgin – and Ronald Reagan was her first love.
Ronald Reagan was 39 and was actually playing her father in the 1950 drama “Louisa”, which is how they got to know each other.
In her book, “Learning to Live Out Loud”, Piper Laurie writes that to begin with Ronald Reagan was the perfect gentleman and asked her mother for permission to take her out on a date.
But instead of doing so he took her to his home where he made hamburgers for them both.
Things went downhill from there and when they moved into the bedroom where Ronald Reagan turned into a “show-off” who had sex “without grace”.
Piper Laurie, now 79, writes: “He made sure I was aware of the length of time he had been <<ardent>>. It was 40 minutes.”
Piper Laurie adds that when she complained she was not satisfied, she got rather short shrift indeed.
Ronald Reagan told her: “There’s something wrong with you. You should have had many orgasms by now – after all this time. You’ve got to see a doctor.”
On top of that, Ronald Reagan also disclosed the amount he had paid for the condom, in a crass attempt to prove his point.
In her memoir Piper Laurie also tells how she found her voice through acting and once tore up a lucrative contract as it only allowed her to play dull roles as a “perky starlet”.
But despite ups and down Piper Laurie eventually achieved the respect of her peers and the critics.
Gregory Peck, her co-star in “Other People’s Money” in 1991, even described one of her performances as “a series of revelations moving and true”.
Piper Laurie was nominated for Oscars for her roles in the 1961 pool drama “The Hustler” opposite Paul Newman.
The actress was also nominated for the award for her parts in the 1976 horror “Carrie” and the 1986 romantic drama “Children of a Lesser God”.
Ronald Reagan’s acting career lasted for nearly three decades but he quit Hollywood for politics and was elected as governor of California in 1967.
Ronald Reagan served as U.S. President between 1981 and 1989 and died in 2004.
