Al Pacino Used to Be a Prostitute

Years before Al Pacino became an A-list celebrity, he used to trade sex for shelter. No joke!

When Pacino was in his 20's he was so poor he found himself struggling to make ends meet so he sold his body to keep a roof over his head.

He tells the NY Post, "At 20, I lived in Sicily by selling the only asset I had - my body. An older woman traded food and housing in return for sex. I woke mornings not really loving myself."

Fast forward ten years and he was well on his way to becoming one of the most sought after actors of his time.

We bet a lot of today’s biggest actors/actresses have similar stories. They don't call them struggling actors for nothing.
