The jobbing TV actor turned Hollywood movie star, who shot to fame as Walter White in cult TV show Breaking Bad, recalled the experience in his new memoir, A Life in Parts.

Bryan admits he was a bit hesitant about paying for sex, but he soon found himself in a compromising situation with a call girl whose name he didn't know.

"In the room, she indicated I should take off my clothes. This was happening," he wrote. "There'd been no fireworks. No tenderness. No talking."

Bryan, who was a teenager at the time, revealed during a previous interview on Inside The Actor's Studio that the experience happened when he was in Amsterdam's red light district. He was travelling through Europe for the first time with a 20-strong group of guys, many of whom were determined to lose their virginity.

"We never exchanged names. I'd had no idea what I was doing," he continued of his sexual partner. "It was just this stranger and me at the particular moment in time. As uncomplicated as it should be."

This is just one of a series of stunning revelations previewed from the star's book. A Life in Parts chronicles Bryan's first role at just seven years old up to and including his Emmy award-winning performance in Breaking Bad.

The 60-year-old Trumbo star also revealed he once fantasised about murdering an ex-girlfriend who had allegedly stalked him and threatened his life.
