They were such a striking couple that it's crazy! I'm not a big Grace Jones fan but the look they had together is amazing.

I wonder what she'll say about the Big Guy in that book of hers.
Spring, era jävlar!

Exerpts:
8. She once tried to fetch then-boyfriend Dolph Lundgren from his Los Angeles home with a gun.
I actually had a gun. It seemed very natural that I would go and fetch Dolph holding a gun. I did so out of desperation — we had been together for years and had made this move to L.A., a place I absolutely loathed, against my better judgment, and then he comes back from being away and Tom [Holbrook, Dolph’s manager] blocks me from even seeing hi. What is going on?

We turned up at the hotel, not to shoot anyone, but to make sure he came with us. We banged on the door of his room. Bang, bang, bang! I’ve got a gun! I’m screaming, “Let him out, you bastard!” It was as though Tom was holding him hostage and we had come to rescue him, hair flying, legs flailing, breasts heaving, guns flashing, music pumping. This was the kind of hysteria that took place in Los Angeles. In one of the many lives I never got to live, another Grace (one who never came true) shot Dolph there and then… And that was the end of the ballad of Grace and Dolph.

10. One time, her producer asked her to come to the studio immediately to record additional vocals for a song. The studio was 15 minutes away. Jones showed up three days later because she was busy cutting/burning Dolph Lundgren’s clothing.

When Trevor [Horn, “Slave to the Rhythm” producer] called me at my apartment, I was having an argument with Dolph. The relationship had reached a turbulent period. Trevor had called because he really needed me to get down to the studio a few blocks away and add some vocals [to “We Need Some Money”] so he could check that he had cracked the rhythm problem — he called just when I was setting fire to Dolph’s trousers. I was in a very bad mood. Trevor said, “I need you now, please get down here.” The studio was only fifteen minutes away from my apartment. It wasn’t like I had to cross the Atlantic.I made it three days later. I had some things I needed to clear up. A few more items of clothing to cut up and burn. When I got to the studio, though, I was in a very good mood. Did he want me on time and in a bad mood, and therefore of no use, or late and in a good mood, and ready for action?
(according to Dolph she was jealous of him spending so much time training with Sly, and the maid called him at Sly's when she burnt the clothes)

There is your answer mate, she set fire to his clothes and pulled out a shooter on him.
Is there an off switch to your mouth?

Article on Grace's book with another anecdote:
Grace Jones fut aussi une proche d’Andy Warhol. A cette époque Grace sort avec Dolph Lundgren. « Andy pouvait m’appeler pour me demander de quelle taille était la bite de Dolph. (…) Il voulait en savoir plus sur mon nouveau petit copain, alors il a organisé une séance de photos avec Helmut Newton ». Une séance où le couple est nu ! Andy l’avait aussi invité au mariage d’Arnold Schwarzenegger avec Maria Shriver en 1986 dans le Massassuchets. Ils se sont rendus à l’évenement en jet privé. Ils sont arrivés en retard, au moment même où Arnold et Maria étaient à genoux s’échangeant leurs vœux. La porte a grincé et ils ont fait une entrée bien remarquée.

My translation:
Grace Jones was also close to Andy Warhol. At this time Grace is dating Dolph Lundgren. "Andy could call me to ask the size of Dolph's dick. (...) He wanted to know more about my new boyfriend, so he organized a photo shoot with Helmut Newton". A session where the couple is naked! Andy also invited him at the wedding of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver in 1986 in Massachusetts. They went to the event in a private jet. They arrived late, at the exact moment when Arnold and Maria were on their knees exchanging vows. The door cringed and they made quite a noticed entrance.

By reading Paul Talbot's new book BRONSON'S LOOSE AGAIN, I just found out editor/second unit and director Peter R. Hunt (Charles Bronson's ASSASSINATION, WILD GEESE II, ON HER MAJESTY'S SERVICES) was originally set to direct A VIEW TO A KILL.

Actress Jan Gan Boyd (A CHORUS LINE, ASSASSINATION) also had a part written for her and she had done promotional shots for it. But Hunt got sick so the project was turned over, and ultimately John Glen took the helm...
