NEW YORK, March 19 (UPI) -- Soap opera star Anthony Geary admitted on "The Wendy Williams Show" he was Hollywood screen icon Elizabeth Taylor's "boy toy" during the early 1980s.

Taylor appeared briefly on Geary's long-running daytime drama "General Hospital."

Asked on Friday's edition of "The Wendy Williams Show" to talk about his relationship with Taylor, Geary replied: "I used to never talk about my relationship with Elizabeth Taylor because I'm a gentleman and don't kiss and tell, but she did an interview a few years ago for Talk Magazine where she outed us as more than friends. ... Yeah, so I don't mind telling that. I was sort of her boy toy for a couple of years."

Geary then recalled how Taylor, star of "International Velvet," "Giant" and "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," was upset when People magazine quoted him in 1983 as saying he hadn't romanced Taylor.

"They had a picture of me on the cover and the blurb there was 'Anthony Geary looking for life after Luke... Admits his affair with Elizabeth Taylor was a hoax.' I never said such a thing," Geary recalled. "I said, 'No, we are just friends.' So Elizabeth calls me and she says: 'Tony? I hear you told People Magazine that we didn't sleep together. That's the worse thing that anyone has ever said about me.'"

Geary began playing the character of Luke Spencer in 1978.
