Is busty actress Thora Birch a part-time prostitute in real life? An interesting blind item (translation: unconfirmed gossip) circulating the web seems to think so.
The rumor (originally posted on CDaN) hints:
This Golden Globe nominee/winner actress is probably C list. Despite the Golden Globe nod and being in one of the more famous movies of the past 20 years, she doesn’t get much attention. She does however have a very, very kinky sex life. She has been known to hire herself out as an escort for the night. She doesn’t do it for money. She does it for the thrill. She uses different photos in her ad and will throw on a wig when she goes to see the client. It probably would have stayed a secret except her loser ex-boyfriend who she supported has a big mouth.
According to those speculating on the site’s message board, the actress in question is most likely 27-year-old American Beauty starlet Thora Birch. The fact that TMZ hasn’t broke this story makes me think it’s crap, but the idea that Birch is renting out those fun bags is just too awesome to not jerk-of to think about.
Birch, whose parents were porn star degenerates during the ’70s (among their credits: Deep Throat), was nominated for a Golden Globe award for her performance in the 2001 dramedy Ghost World, costarring Scarlett Johansson. Since then, she has been slumming it in the straight-to-DVD market, appearing in Dark Corners, Train and the Brittany Murphy vehicle Deadline.
A 2007 Celebrity Gossip report provides a stroke-worthy disturbing aside to this story:
The American Beauty star was filming “The Winter of Frozen Dreams” when manager/father Jack Birch insisted on watching the filming of her sex scenes with Dean Winters. Even though it is industry standard to only film sex scenes on a closed set, Birch Sr. demanded to be present during the “getting freaky” times. Apparently the crew on the set was absolutely horrified. “It was so wrong,” said one insider. “The director is saying, ‘Harder! Faster!’ and the father is giving Winters the thumbs up.
Hmm. Questionable parenting. Career in the dumps. Could this story be true?
