"He never asked me how old I was": Actress claims she slept with Mick Jagger at 15

"He never asked me how old I was": Actress claims she slept with Mick Jagger at 15

Actress Rae Dawn, the daughter of American comedian Tommy Chong, has claimed she spent a “fabulous” two days with Mick Jagger when she was just 15 years old in 1977.

Dawn, who played prominent roles in the 1985 films The Colour Purple and Commando, shared her underage fling with the Rolling Stones legend to the Daily Mail.

Dawn’s admission came after she claimed to have accidentally blurted out the news while taping a forthcoming podcast from The Hollywood Reporter.

“He wasn’t that much older than me in my brain. He was 33 and young and gorgeous with a nice body,” she described to the outlet in a quick attempt to get ahead of the story.

“It wasn’t a bad thing; it was fabulous. Totally rock ‘n’ roll. He didn’t make me do anything I didn’t want to do, but he was very vain, always looking in the mirror.”

Now 58-years-old, Dawn says she slept with the famous superstar while he was still married to his first wife after meeting him at a friend’s home.

The actress was friends with the daughter of John Phillips, the singer of The Mamas & the Papas, and introduced herself to Jagger when they were both visiting Phillips’ home.

“He never asked me how old I was and I never told him,” she told the Daily Mail.

“It never came up. I remember thinking he was really cute. He had tousled hair. I thought, ‘Oh man, he is beautiful.’”

The pair ended up spending two days together in New York, according to the Daily Mail.

She insisted that any relations between the two was completely consensual and worried that the revelation would land Jagger in deep water.

“He did nothing wrong,” said Dawn. “He didn’t make me do anything I didn’t want to do.”

Dawn bumped into Jagger a number of times after the romance occurred. Years later he casted her for an appearance in the video for the Rolling Stones’ song, Just Another Night.

However, it seems their relationship as friends turned sour when Dawn publicly complained about Jagger’s “licky” behaviour on set.

“In real life, he was a great kisser, but in the film, he did lots of ‘licky’ things,’ she said. “I talked about that in an interview. He has a fragile ego. He hasn’t spoken to me since.”
