Now powerful figures such as Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein have come to light and demystified the industry. If you ever wanted to be a superstar and become famous, then you might want to reconsider your plans once you learn what it’s really like to live in the spotlight.
Hollywood is more than money, fame, red carpet appearances and millions of adoring fans. There is also shocking shallowness, abuse, heartbreak and more crime. Here’s a dark secret and scary story that demystifies the entertainment industry.
Hollywood may be seen as a town full of glitz and lavish lifestyles, but it has a past history that’s anything but glamorous. In fact, there’s a much shadier side that many people are unaware of.
It has been rumored that a mobster named Mickey Cohen ran the Hollywood underworld. In 1950, Life magazine published an expose, entitled “Trouble in Los Angeles,” to focus on Cohen and his rampant organized crime units that ran the industry. This is one secret Hollywood would definitely like to erase and forget about forever.
