Jackie Collins Has Kathy Griffin’s Phone Number and More: What’s in My Bag?

Jackie Collins is an open book! The Santangelos writer recently spilled the contents of her oh-so-chic Chanel bag for Us Weekly, and in the process dished on some of her Hollywood connections. (The best-selling author has many famous friends, not to mention a famous sister, Dynasty legend Joan Collins.)

Pulling out a notebook — she carries one everywhere, natch — the 77-year-old Brit discovered one of those friends’ phone numbers. “Oh, Kathy Griffin‘s phone number! I shouldn’t show you that,” she quipped.

“Kathy is a good friend of mine,” she explained. “We were in Hawaii together at Christmas, and Kathy comes walking down the beach one day in her bikini, and she says, ‘You’ve gotta take pictures of me in my bikini. I don’t like the pictures that appeared in the magazines.’ So every day she would come down in a new bikini and I would have to take pictures of her.”

The Hollywood Wives scribe also told Us about rubbing elbows with the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Justin Theroux, Isla Fisher, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Jared Leto at Vanity Fair’s star-studded Oscars party, where she picked up an uber-glam compact mirror one year.

“Oh, it’s a great party. I think this year’s was the best,” she raved of the bash. “I met everybody…Jennifer Aniston was at the next table, and everybody was having a great time.”

Watch the video above to see what else is in Collins’ tote — and to find out which famous actor is her neighbor!
