Downton Abbey star Shirley MacLaine has admitted that she never suffered from "sexual jealousy" when speaking about her personal life.

The actress, who definitely made an impact on the hit ITV period drama Downton Abbey playing the American grandmother of Lady Mary, Martha Levinson spoke to the Telegraph about a past relationship where she knew the person was "bisexual" who didn't love her "at all".

Asked if she thought he was monogamous, the iconic Hollywood icon responded:

"Oh, I really don’t know. I don’t think it would bother me, really. I’ve never really had sexual jealousy. Well, maybe once. If they sneak around I don’t like it. It’s the sneaking part that I don’t like.”

“I was never possessive with my husband or him with me. That’s why I had so many affairs when I was married.”

Speaking of relationships, the 79-year-old also admitted to having a crush on her Downton Abbey co-star Brendan Coyle, confessing:

"I love doing Downton". She continued: "I loved it from the moment I showed up on set. We were all out in the rain and the wind and everybody was acting away and so good. I have kind of a crush on Brendan [Coyle, who plays Bates]. He’s quite mysterious. You don’t really know what he’s up to."
