Rita Moreno Still Keeps a Photo of Marlon Brando in her Bedroom: ‘He was the Lust of My Life’

 

Rita Moreno‘s iconic and eclectic career is the stuff of Hollywood legends — and so is her 5,500-square-foot, multilevel contemporary home.

Nestled in the Berkeley Hills and overlooking the San Francisco Bay, Moreno — who moved into the three-bedroom, thre-and-a-half bath home with her late husband Leonard Gordon 16 years ago — has decorated the space in colorful ways to reflect her Puerto Rican heritage, world travels and family, which includes respectful nods to the “lust” and “love” of her life: ex-Marlon Brando and Gordon, her husband of 45 years.

Moreno’s romantic tokens are in her favorite room in the house, the bedroom. The 85-year-old’s tribute to her torrid 8-year affair with Brando, whom she met at age 22 on the set of the Napoleon biopic Désirée, is a framed black and white photo of the Godfather actor in his prime.

“Why that picture of Marlon Brando? Because he was a big love of mine in my life,” says Moreno matter-of-factly. “This one, it’s almost seems like a vignette out of a movie, so that’s why it’s there. He was the lust of my life and that over there is the love of my life,” admits Moreno, gesturing to a framed photo of her with her husband, pictured in an embrace, in silhouette. “This was taken by a very famous fashion photographer at the time, it is a really special photo. I just love it because even though we are silhouetted, you can still see features, which I think is so special. A special photo in a special room for a special mama.”

Moreno, who is currently appearing in Netflix’s One Day at a Time reboot as scene-stealing grandmother Lydia, says she designed the room with love, affection and warmth, including the textured wallpaper she used on the walls called grasscloth.

“I love this room, I can never get tired of it, I get excited to be in it again when I come home again after months away, I just adore being in here,” she says. “Everything that I want, I have right here. You give me a little crockpot and I could live here. I very often do.”

In The Garden of Lust

In The Garden of Lust


For Marlena, being a submissive to a dominant man is an obsession she cannot ignore. Driven by her haunting need, she seeks out the services of her friend Miriam, a professional Domme who runs a matchmaking service for dominants and submissives. Though Miriam worries that the beautiful 40 year old widow is too inexperienced for the three month arrangement she wants, Lenas determination wins her over. From Miriams files of clients, Marlena chooses a wealthy English actor and lifestyle master, Benjamin Lyons. Following the masters instructions, Marlena arrives in London wearing nothing but a dress and high heels. She goes directly to a leather shop, where shes fitted into a locking leather harness that will be her only attire during weeks of training at the masters country cottage. She shovels shit, tends his animals, and pulls a plow through his huge garden in bridle, bit and harness. Sex is brusque, and brilliant, but all too brief to satisfy an urgent and growing need. The masters authority is absolute; his lust is savage; and the compassion she sees behind his cold visage gives her hope that theres a softer man behind the cool façade. Hes all that she desires. But while everything about her new life could be taken straight from her kinky fantasies, fantasy is not reality. And the reality of her slave life is as rough as Miriam warned. Has she made a mistake going these extremes? A battle of wills between master and slave soon escalates into a heated crisis that threatens to end Marlenas journey into the dark heart of her desire.
