Cal Culver gave up the sordid details in an interview before he died in 1987 and now the lost chat has been unearthed and included in new book Hollywood Babylon Strikes Again.

Culver, who died of an AIDS-related illness, told the unnamed interviewer he met Reeve when both were auditioning for the same Broadway role in the mid-1970s.

In the chat, the porn star says, "Christopher was a great lover and I think I liberated him sexually.

"I didn't think he was gay but he seemed willing to try anything once. He was curious."

In the book extract, obtained by the Globe, Culver calls Reeve "the man of my dreams" and reveals the two men had a passionate affair that lasted for two months - until the future Superman learned his partner was a gay porn star, who performed under the name Casey Donovan.

Reeve died of heart failure in 2004, almost a decade after he was paralysed in a horse fall.
