She added: “What’s wrong with that? It’s true. I mean, I’m sorry.
“What am I supposed to say? She’s a beauty? I have friends who say, ‘Hello, gorgeous’ to everyone.”
Joan married her fifth husband Percy Gibson, 56, in February of 2002 at Claridge’s Hotel in London.
It was Percy’s second marriage, as he was previously married to Cynthia Bauer for over a decade.
During an appearance on Good Morning Britain in 2020, the veteran actress was asked if she would have met her now-husband when she was in her 30s, to which she replied “He wasn’t born!” referencing the 31-year age difference between the pair.
