Sometime last year, we blew apart your understanding of pop culture icons such as Betty White, Ricky Gervais, Bob Ross, and Alex Jones, and revealed that you would have totally wanted to bang their younger selves. Yes, the "They're turning the frogs gay" guy. That's how powerfully erotic our writing is.
So we thought we'd take another shot and ruin/enlighten you by revealing the hidden pasts of more famous people -- hidden pasts you'll want to print out and take to the nearest restroom.
