Ellen Burstyn Used Sex As A Meal Ticket

Oscar-winning actress ELLEN BURSTYN was once so poor she used sex as a way to get free meals. THE EXORCIST star reveals she would prostitute herself to thank admirers who took her to a fine restaurant. She says, "When I was 18 or 19 I wasn't earning very much money and so I ate when I had a date. "If I was asked out I went out to a fancy restaurant and got all dressed up and looked terrific, but that was all the food I got. "I felt the least I should do was say thank you so I would have sex." Burstyn insists she's not proud of her naive ways: "I didn't really have a clear view of what I was doing then; I was just using my sexuality. It took a while for me to get that."
