    James Lipton Was a Pimp: Inside the Actor's Studio Host Talks Prostitution Past in Paris

    James Lipton Was a Pimp: Inside the Actor's Studio Host Talks Prostitution Past in Paris | E! Online
    James Lipton is opening up about his time working at a pimp in Paris.

    In the latest issue of Parade magazine, the Inside the Actors Studio host was asked about his—shall we say interesting?—experiences working in France in the 1950s.

    "It was only a few years after the war," Lipton reveals. "Paris was different then, still poor. Men couldn't get jobs and, in the male chauvinist Paris of that time, the women couldn't get work at all. It was perfectly respectable for them to go into le milieu [prostitution]."

    The 86-year-old continued, "They were beautiful and young and extraordinary. There was no [shame] because it was completely regulated. Every week they had to be inspected medically...it was a different time."

    Lipton was introduced to the prostitution scene after befriending one of the women. He explained, "We became great friends. When I ran out of money, I said, 'I have to go home.' She said, 'No, you don't. I'll arrange for you.' So she arranged for me to do it. I had to be okayed by the underworld; otherwise they would've found me floating in the Seine."

    Lipton, who at the time says he represented a "whole bordello" and did "a roaring business," has different views of the world's oldest profession now.

    When asked if he thinks people should pay for sex, he said, "I really don't. I think if you can't earn it on your own, then you don't deserve it."

    LOL! Just really hard to picture him doing it. Maybe if I visualize him dressed like a 70s type pimp ala Snoop Lion.

    That's a pretty fucked up attitude. Who's he to say who deserves it? There are a lot of reasons men go to prostitutes, they don't all hang around bars trying to pick up women then visit a prostitute as a last resort. What about guys with disabilities or depression, don't they deserve a bit of lovin'?

    Well done. When I clicked on the thread title, I was waiting for someone to say it.

    He talked about this a few years ago. I'm wondering why it's just now making news.

    This thread makes me think of Neapolitan Girl:
