He wouldn't talk to her for 6 months because she touched that f*cking award 10 seconds before him?
Those Hollywood guys do have weird problems man!
Oh, gee, I think Forsythe (and even Grodin) are right here: Joan would do silly things to make people mad on purpose, then play the victim of their 'irrational' anger when it works.
I doubt Forsythe was upset so much by the award grab incident she sanitizes in the telling, but just a pattern of "Oh-I'm-such-a-diva" bull$hit from Collins which probably had become incredibly tiresome by then.
It's the same reason Linda didn't really want to do LEGENDS with Joan twenty years later: Joan wants to convince you she's really Alexis by being "difficult" in order to convey stature and get attention.

I wish this great documentary would be up in decent sound and picture quality!
I even would buy this on DVD.
This is how you make an entrance.

Joan Collins displays her comedic talent in the "not that far fetched" line, but Douglas S. Cramer later beats her.
