Known as one of the best film actors of all time after breathtaking performances like the title role in "Lawrence of Arabia" and even voicing critic Ego in the Pixar favorite "Ratatouille," the famous "bad boy" genius actor has a new biography under way - and it talks about a supposed Peter O'Toole affair with Princess Margaret.

Classic Hollywood glamour won't ever die even if most of its biggest stars have already passed away, and rumors about some of the time's biggest performers still continue well into the 21st century, decades after their prime - including Peter O'Toole's affair with a royal.

Besides the new revelation of Peter O'Toole's affair, other "gossip" that has continued to live long after stars' primes include new information about the death of "West Side Story" legendary actress Natalie Wood in the 80s, Sophia Loren discussing her infamous picture with Jayne Mansfield, Rock Hudson's ex boyfriend speaking out publicly for the first time after and even the recent discovery that there was a tunnel connecting Kirk Douglas' home to the Playboy Mansion.

According to Financial Express, a new biography about the "Becket" actor has revealed Peter O'Toole's affair with Princess Margaret, the younger sister of Queen Elizabeth of England - when he was married to Welsh actress Siân Phillips and the royal was ending her marriage to Lord Snowdon.

The New York Daily News reports that the Peter O'Toole affair claims first came out in a new biography of the actor called "Peter O'Toole: Hellraiser, Sexual Outlaw, Irish Rebel," written by authors Darwin Porter and Danforth Prince.

The Mirror reports that the book claims that the iconic actor and the royal allegedly enjoyed a secret holiday in the Caribbean and a similar one in a private villa in Morocco in the 1970s after having met years previously at a screening of O'Toole's film "Lord Jim."

The biography claiming Peter O'Toole affair with the princess will come out next month.
