Thomas Jane Was Not a Hustler In Real Life…That’s a shame!
Thomas Jane, who starred as a well-endowed hustler in the just-canceled HBO series Hung, says he was misquoted in a Los Angeles Times story that implied he was once a prostitute himself.
In October, Jane discussed his years as a struggling young actor with the Times, saying he was open to sexual experimentation. “I was 18,” he was quoted as saying. “I wasn’t averse to going down to Santa Monica Boulevard and letting a guy buy me a sandwich. Know what I mean?” Jane now tells The Fix’s Anna David that he was misquoted and the implication that he hustled is incorrect.
“In the interviews that I did, I never said I was a prostitute,” Jane tells David. “I was talking about my [early] time in Hollywood: I said that I’d had a sexually adventurous time and I was trying to relate that to how I play a prostitute on TV— trying to relate my experience to my character’s experience — and well, people heard what they wanted to hear.”
Interesting, because when i read it, i never took it that he was a hustler. I thought about what he said “sexually adventurous time” prostitute was not on my brain…
