Roth reveals sex worker past

11 December 2009

Eli Roth paid for his student films by working at online sex chatrooms.

The Hostel director and Inglourious Basterds actor posed as a rock groupie called Tami during his time working for Penthouse.

Roth recalled, "When I was in college, I used to work as an online operator for Penthouse, posing as a woman. That's how I paid for my student films. They hired guys because guys know what other guys want to hear.

"The creepy thing was, because this was in 1991, we only got doctors and scientists because they were the ones using the internet.

"Guys were paying $1 (61p) a minute to talk with us. There were ads for me in magazines too."
