It's sort of natural to be curious about what goes on behind the pink walls of the Beverly Hills Hotel, it being home, at various times, to so many stripes of celebrities.

But the famouses who turned out for the hotel's 100th anniversary over the weekend had to be nudged a little bit to tell their sordid tales, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Mary J. Blige, for instance, merely told the crowd before performing a five-song set that, “I fell in love with the man I married here. Boom.”

Brett Ratner, who you KNOW has stories that would make Dita von Teese blush, would only mention the odd but still G-rated time that Bob Evans, Warren Beatty and Michael Jackson all stopped by his room independently when he was staying there for six months.

Beatty, for his part, at least had the decency to allude to the dirty deeds done during his stay at the famous property many moons ago. “Are you kidding?" he told the Reporter when asked. "I’m not going to tell you that.”
