The actress, 77, says Rod – her boyfriend in the 70s – made her pay to stay even after he hit the big time. Britt revealed: “I had to pay $100 (£42 in 1970) a month. I would watch him buy clothes from Yves St Laurent but nothing for me. He did used to like to wear my underwear though. He would wear these baggy satin trousers and needed little satin pants. Rod would wear my knickers. He liked them.”
The Sailing singer was once branded as “tight as two coats of paint” by Faces bandmate, Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood.
Rod has also admitted he refills his children’s fizzy drink bottles.
Britt, a Bond girl in 1974’s The Man With The Golden Gun, says sexism was rife in her early days.
She said: “It was pretty much what you expected when you went along for a job with a director or a producer.
“It was rampant and girls just went with it. You smiled politely. Yes, you did have to do things you didn’t want to do but show me an actress of my age who hasn’t.
“It was a very different time. #MeToo girls can get up and scream and shout and everyone will listen but when I started out it wasn’t so easy. My first job as an actress on the stage in Sweden involved me walking around for hours every day wearing just fishnets, high heels and a swimming costume.
“I would have been maybe 18 or 19 and I thought I was lucky. Times have changed.
“At school when you started wearing a bra, the boy sitting behind you in class would
flick it undone. Now that boy would be in serious trouble.
“Back then it was hard to be a woman. And nowadays it’s very hard to be a man.”
