Morello graduated in 1986 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in social studies."When I graduated from Harvard and moved to Hollywood, I was unemployable.
I was literally starving, so I had to work menial labor and, at one point, I even worked as an exotic dancer. I did bachelorette parties and I'd go down to my boxer shorts. All I can say is thank God it was in the time before You Tube!
You could make decent money doing that job – people do what they have to do.""I never had any real desire to work in politics but if there was any ember burning in me, it was extinguished working in that job because of two things: one of them was the fact that 80 per cent of the time I spent with the Senator, he was on the phone asking rich people for money.
It just made me understand that the whole business was dirty. The other was the time a woman phoned up to the office and wanted to complain that there were Mexicans moving into her neighborhood.
