RICHARD BURTON, British actor, died (b: 1925); Richard Burton…the actor’s actor, a man’s man…well, even a biography of Liz, whom he married not once, but twice, suggested that he probably had an affair with Lawrence Olivier. Burton acknowledged homosexual experiences as a young actor on the London stage in the 1950s. He also suggested that perhaps all actors were latent homosexuals, and “we cover it up with drink”.
