Legendary actor Marlon Brando was attracted to women he thought he didn't stand a chance of success with - and used to dream of wooing a nun.

The GODFATHER star, now 80, was the most lusted after pin-up of his day, but preferred to be with women who weren't dazzled by his looks and celebrity.

He remembers, "I enjoy identifying and pushing the right emotional buttons of women.

"The less likely I was to seduce a woman, the more I wanted to succeed. Doing rude things to nuns was always a fantasy."

And Brando even admits: "A prostitute can capture a moment.

"A prostitute can give you all kinds of wonderful excitement and inspiration and make you think that nirvana has arrived on the two o'clock plane and it ain't necessarily so."
