Hamilton, who was speaking in a TV interview, laughed off a suggestion that he had been a victim. "When I was very young, 12, I had a relationship with my stepmother," Fox News quoted him, as telling the ladies of the View. The star released his memoir "Don't Mind If I Do" on October 14 which includes the revelation that he slept with the wife of his father, bandleader George "Spike" Hamilton.
"It actually went on for a short period of time when I was 12 and then strangely enough when I was of age, and I was an actor in Hollywood, I met her again and she was as beautiful as ever and we had a sort of followup," Hamilton said.
The star of The Godfather Part III and Zorro, The Gay Blade said that his stepmother was about 28 or 30 at the time of the first sexual encounter.
"My father never knew about it, and it was a very strange thing. But it was very normal, in a strange - she didn't make me feel bad about it," Hamilton said on the program. "It wasn't dirty," he added.
Hamilton said that his stepmother called it 'cuddling' and he didn't feel abnormal about it. "I was molested?" he said. "Damn, I'm down for it again," he added.
