What are some shocking facts about celebrities?
James Lipton was a pimp in France. For those who don't know him, he is the host of the wildly popular show Inside the Actors Studio (TV Series 1994– ) where he interviews different actors/actresses about the movies they make and their acting processes. Lipton talks candidly about his year in Paris as a pimp which began after he befriended a prostitute.
"I did a roaring business, and I was able to live for a year. The French mecs didn't exploit women. They represented them, like agents. And they took a cut. That's how I lived. I was going through my rites of passage, no question about it. It was a great year of my life."
