She was only A-list for a short period of time, but as soon as this actress and sex symbol’s popularity waned she fled from the spotlight and was seemingly missing in action for several decades.
That is until a reporter in NYC was tipped off that she was working as a bartender in a gay club in Greenwich Village for minimum wage. Turns out she was going by her actual name and the club owners had no idea that they had a former celebrity in their employ.
When the reporters ventured down to the club they saw her and she was completely unrecognizable: she had gained a tremendous amount of weight, had yellowed teeth from smoking cigarettes and was wearing her hair in a librarian style bun.
They couldn’t believe that this was the same person, but it was.
