Had Dirty Jobs been on the air before Whoopi Goldberg achieved fame, the longtime actress and talk show host could have referred Mike Rowe to a pretty rough gig.

Wednesday on The Howard Stern Show, Goldberg told Howard that she wasn’t wealthy before her career took off. In fact, Goldberg revealed, she even cleaned subway toilets at one point.

Goldberg also explained to Howard what fueled a past drug addiction.

“For me, it was, you know, the times, and it seemed like a good idea at the time,” Goldberg said. “Everyone looked real cool.”

Later in the interview, Goldberg spoke about losing the love of her life to AIDS.
