In addition to hanging out with members of the Rat Pack, Shirley had also worked with some of Hollywood's hottest leading men, including Jack Lemmon and Jack Nicholson.

"I wasn't attracted to Jack [Lemmon]. He was a sweetheart," she says. "He didn't have that dangerous, complicated sexual thing that I liked helping the man I was attracted to figure out."

"I think Jack Nicholson has all that dangerous chemistry," Oprah says. "He does not?"

"Too much for me!" Shirley says.

In her book, Shirley confesses which of her co-stars and co-workers she was attracted to. "[I had] quite a relationship with Robert Mitchum," she recalls. "Yves Montand...I was attracted to some of the directors ... And everyone knows that what happened on a set stays on a set. No one talked."
