The list of surprising facts about Gérard Depardieu grows even longer: In his new autobiography It Happened Like That (Ca C'est Fait Comme Ca), Depardieu reveals that he worked as a prostitute from the age of 10. "I've known since I was very young that I please homosexuals," Depardieu writes, saying that when men attempted to pick him up, "I would ask them for money." (Depardieu cautions that he looked at least 15 at the time, though that fact is maybe not as reassuring as he seems to think.) Robbing his clients provided an additional source of income: "At 20 the thug in me was alive and kicking. I would rip some of them off ... beat up some bloke and leave with all his money." Depardieu's best friend would likely not be appalled at that particular piece of news.
