Seventies movie sex symbol Pam Grier has revealed one of late comic Richard Pryor's secrets in her new tell-all book - the comedian couldn't read.

The movie star claims she taught Pryor to read, while she was dating him - because it was his dream to thumb through Leo Tolstoy's epic War & Peace. Grier says, "He would learn his lines phonetically and people would help him learn his lines, but he'd say, 'Baby, I wanna learn how to read, and I wanna read War & Peace'." (KL/WNVOP/MJ)
