'Hung's' Thomas Jane changes tune: 'I never said I was a prostitute'
In an Oct. 2 interview with the Los Angeles Times, Jane talks about his time as a struggling actor. He then tells the publication, "I was 18. I wasn't averse to going down to Santa Monica Boulevard and letting a guy buy me a sandwich. Know what I mean?"
Two months later, Jane has since amended his statement. He tells the The Fix that he was never a prostitute in real life.
"In the interviews that I did, I never said I was a prostitute," Jane says. "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."
As for what took him so long to bring up his concerns, he says he didn't realize how people might interpret his comments.
