Rita Moreno, the West Side Story opened up about her pregnancy story to the world. The 90-year-old shared her dreadful story of a botched abortion she suffered while she was in a relationship with her then-boyfriend Marlon Brando.

The actress revealed that although abortion was illegal back then, she found a doctor through some friends.

Talking about the painful experience, she said:

 “He was a real doctor — Marlon paid him $500 — as opposed to something in a back alley.”

The actress started bleeding badly as she later learned that her abortion was not a successful one.

The Academy Award winner continued:

”Marlon took me to the hospital. I had what they told me was a ‘disturbed pregnancy,'”

“The doctor didn’t do anything really, except make me bleed. In other words, he didn’t do it right. I didn’t know it then, but I could have died. What a mess. What a dreadful mess.”
