Dame Joan Collins has allegedly called out Harry Styles following an incident that occurred at the Met Gala in 2019.

The Hollywood actress, 90, detailed the incident in her new memoir Behind The Shoulder Pads: Tales I Tell My Friends.

According to the icon, the brawl occurred as the singer, 29, kept dancing and singing along to Cher, 77, who performed on stage at the fashion event.

She recalled that it had been her first time attending the big soirée and Harry annoyingly kept blocking her view during Cher’s performance.

In her book, she wrote: ‘Harry Styles jumped on the table in front of us [those sitting on her table], obscuring our view, and took no notice of our entreaties to “get down, we can’t see”.’

Awkward: According to the icon, the brawl occurred as the singer kept dancing and singing along to Cher, 77, who performed on stage at the fashion event

Joan added: ‘The sophisticated crowd went mad for her [Cher], standing up whooping and cheering.

‘Bette Midler, wearing a top hat and tailcoat in glittery black sequins, came to our table and boogied with Julianne Moore.

‘And I glimpsed Gwyneth Paltrow and Katie Holmes doing the same.

‘Cher left after her first number then came back wearing her original Bob Mackie sleek black embroidered bodysuit and a massive black curly wig to sing Believe.’

Despite the awkward encounter between the two icons, Joan said she would ‘go back to the Met in a heartbeat’.

She added: ‘I loved my first Met Ball, and I would certainly go again in a heartbeat, although at $30,000 [£24,700] a seat, I’ll wait to be invited!’

It comes after Dame Joan recently revealed her own experiences as a young actress in Hollywood during an appearance on The Graham Norton Show last week.

The actress described it as a ‘really difficult’ time with producers taking advantage of wannabe stars and said she was even forced to meet one while he was naked in the bath.

She told host Graham, ahead of the release of her new memoir Behind The Shoulder Pads: ‘It was really difficult. Thanks to the Me Too movement it has all come out into the open,’  

‘Now and I think young people are having a better chance of not having to face that’.

Joan is best known for her role in 80s soap Dynasty, but also appeared in movies throughout the 50s and 60s alongside the likes of Hollywood superstars Jayne Mansfield and Paul Newman.

She continued: ‘One experience I had was being asked to meet a producer who was in the bath’. 

‘He definitely wasn’t playing with his rubber duck when he asked me to get in with him. When I refused, I was asked to leave, and I didn’t get the part!’.

MeToo is a social movement and awareness campaign against sexual abuse, sexual harassment, and rape culture, in which people publicize their experiences of sexual abuse or sexual harassment.
