The life of a celebrity is glamorous and perfect. Anything and everything they want is theirs for the taking. Nothing goes wrong. It’s happy rainbows, sunshine, and butterflies all the time.
Except for all of those instances when it’s not. Like, say, before they make it big? There are rumors flying around about the pasts of a ton of celebrities: Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Tony Danza, Lindsay Lohan, and so many more. They all have (largely unverified) rumors buried on the internet about what they did while pursuing their careers. Most of them involve committing sexual acts in exchange for food, money, or face time with powerful, career-granting people.
Unfortunately, so many of these “truths” go unverified. There’s virtually no way to substantiate the majority of these claims, without asking the subjects directly. Instead of perpetuating those rumors, we looked into the ones that had the most evidence. Most of these end up being celebrities who admitted to their past acts themselves. Other times the evidence is just out there, with no effort being made to hide it. The term “hooker” is extreme and challenging to substantiate, so we’re broadening the list to include everyone who used their bodies to make a profit, whether it’s through sex, stripping, or other means. Watch out for surprises!
10 Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monroe was a huge sex icon by the time the 60s rolled around. She was an extremely popular actress hitting her peak fame in the 50s. She was most famous for playing “dumb blonde” roles throughout her acting career. There are many alleged admissions in biographies about Marilyn's life that she would hang out with men of power for some extra cash.
9 Kathleen Hanna
If you’re familiar with Le Tigre, The Julie Ruin, or Bikini Kill, you’ve heard of Kathleen Hanna. She is the frontwoman for all three musical groups. For a while, “talented musician” wasn’t her only occupation. The life of a musician can be a challenging one, in the early stages there really isn’t any money in it. Most artists aren’t fortunate enough to live solely off of their music career, at least to start.
8 Catherine Zeta-Jones
The Mask of Zorro put Catherine Zeta-Jones on a lot of people’s radars, from movie goers to studio producers. Since then she has been in many movies where she has excelled, like the critically-acclaimed Chicago. It is rumored that before she broke onto the high-paying movie scene, she would make thousands of dollars as an escort. It is alleged that she earned $10,000 a week to provide discreet escorting services to Prince Charles back in the 90s.
7 Sophie Anderton
6 Nadya Suleman
5 Rupert Everett
4 Al Pacino
3 Roseanne Barr
2 Russell Brand
1 Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga was born into a wealthy Italian family. She went to a good school. And then what happened? She rebelled, completely. She did not want to accept any help or money from her parents. She moved out and supported herself with waitressing jobs. That’s not it, though. She stripped, too. She also partook in some serious drugs, but she got herself out of that pattern and now she’s a huge star. Her stripping came from a place of real “body confidence,” as she calls. It. To go to such lengths to avoid relying on her parents is remarkable. And in the end it really worked out for her.
