Jean (not Gene) Simmons

Gorgeous British actress Jean Simmons (not to be confused with KISS frontman Gene Simmons) has passed away at the age of 80.

jean-simmonsJean was a legend of stage and screen, best known for her performances in Laurence Olivier’s Hamlet, the Kirk Douglas classic Spartacus and as Rear Admiral Norah Satie in one episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Simmons’ beauty and tumultuous private life made her a regular focus of tabloid gossip, but there is no truth to the rumour that she had a cow’s tongue grafted onto her own.


  1. I, and I'm sure many others, would argue that Ace Frehly, not Gene Simmons, was the front man of KISS.

  2. Maybe. Wikipedia describes him as "co-frontman", whatever that means.
    I tend to give precedence to the guy who can breathe fire, but that's just me.
