15. The Pickup Artist
Private investigator Anthony Summers showed that Marilyn once confessed she was a call girl before she hit it big in Hollywood – and during one poverty-stricken period in her life, she even resorted to picking up men in bars and selling herself for as little as $15 a night! She confided to her drama coach, Lee Strasberg, about her past as an escort.
Strasberg recalled: “She told me she was the one summoned if anyone needed a beautiful girl for a convention.”
