Dolly Parton - Dolly Parton didn't sleep her way to the top

Dolly Parton didn't sleep with anyone to become a star.

The country music legend insisted while she met many men early in her career who encouraged her to sleep her way to the top, she rejected their advances and didn't let them take advantage.

She told the Mail on Sunday newspaper's Event magazine: ''I did meet a lot sleazy guys, but I never slept with anyone to get where I wanted to go.

''I had grown up with brothers and uncles so I understood the nature of men, and if they got out of line I would make it light-hearted and turn it into a joke.''

Dolly has been married to Carl Dean since 1966, and while she barely talks about him in public, she revealed he helps keep her grounded..

She added: ''Carl sees me today the way he first saw me. I'm not a star to him, and it has never dawned on me that I'm a star - I'm just a working girl.

''I don't have maids or servants and my husband and I love waking up early and going to the 24-hour supermarket when there is nobody else there.''
