Gérard Depardieu, you may remember him from such films as The Man in the Iron Mask and Green Card, has apparently done it all. From sex worker to famous actor, the French expat recently published a book about his life called Ca C’est Fait Comme Ca (It Happened Like That). In it he describes his days as a troubled youth and how he turned to prostitution. He realized at a young age that he was attractive to men, so he turned that into a profit by becoming a sex worker. From the small town he grew up in to the streets of Paris, Depardieu worked the sex industry, mixing it with a thug-like lifestyle that included stealing a car and grave robbing. His predilection for living on the edge hasn’t faded, he continues to struggle with a drinking problem and riled some feathers with a controversial move to get Russian citizenship.
