James Lipton –
Thespian, TV personality, whoremonger.
September 19, 1926 – March 2, 2020.
Aged 93 years.
Most recognized for: As host of Bravo’s “Inside the Actor’s Studio,” James pried inside the minds Tinseltown’s biggest names with hard-hitting questions like “what turns you on?” and “what’s your favorite curse word?” But long before basic cable, Mr. Lipton claimed to be… a pimp. But his whimsical tales of running a “roaring” bordello in post-war Paris were so endearing, that ‘woke’ Hollywood liberals were able to overlook that they were being interviewed by a sex trafficker.
