Top ten porn stars who became actors

Top ten porn stars who became actors

Regardless of what you think of porn as a form of entertainment I think we can all agree that the stars of the adult filmic universe are not known for their thespian abilities. Career ambition or simply chance, once an individual’s name is associated with the medium they surely have to place their mainstream film dreams aside. Aspirations to broaden their acting skills base must really be hampered when all they are known for is their ability to fornicate on cue. No matter the latent talent, I seriously can’t imagine too many TV casting agents willing to hire someone with Shaving Ryan’s Privates on their resume.

There does seem to be a shift in perception as more adult movie stars are slowly popping up in movies at your local neighbourhood cinema, clothes and all. Perhaps the greatest achievement so far was the casting of Sasha Grey by the one and only Mr. Steven Soderbergh to headline in this year’s The Girlfriend Experience.

Ms. Grey is not alone as she is the culmination of years of hard work by numerous stars trying to be accepted by mainstream audiences. We have looked back at those porn stars who decided to break free from the confines of the genre that made them famous and aspire for more. For your reference we have included what films you may know them from, but if you’re curious about their back catalogue you’re on your own.

1. Sylvester Stallone
No need to state where Sly is known for but few know that he got his start in soft-core porn. He sure has come a long way.

    Research your hate-comments MikeSouth... they never said Sly did hardcore, it distincly says softcore and has since it was posted. Also, top ten lists such as these are based on opinions, so if he left your favourite off then just make a note of it like a normal person (that's what these nifty comment boxes are for). Don't spout off that he's an idiot for missing somebody.

    Congratulations on being the biggest creepy internet creep, and not in a good way. Morons? Idiots? You watch way too much porn and therefore your input is debunked. There's a difference between knowledge of porn and referencing for arguments sake. You're a porn troll, go back under that bridge between fantasyland and reality.

    See!!!! Americans! Where are they coming from? Word's gotten out and they've made it their business to drop the intelligence quotient by 20-30 points with their very presence. Thanks Mike, you make us feel smart.
