Celebrities who started their career as a porn star

Some celebrities get famous overnight while others have to struggle a lot to boost their career. Many actors/actress had to do such sacrifices that they are not proud of to support themselves financially at the beginning.

All these actors/actresses started off as low-key pornstars and you probably won’t find their x-rated videos anywhere online because they didn’t really work for mainstream porn industries. After getting much recognition from Hollywood they were finally able to quit the porn industry and make their name in the Hollywood industry from where they became one of the most famous stars of all time with numerous amount of awards.

Here is a list of few people who starred in porn before they could enter Hollywood.

1. Sylvester Stallone

Stallone had to struggle for many years before Rocky happened. When he was a struggling young actor he acted in an adult film called The Party at Kitty and Stud’s. For many years, people didn’t know this work of his. But once he achieved fame and success, the film was re-released under the name The Italian Stallone. 

2. Cameron Diaz

A tall, strikingly attractive blue-eyed natural blonde, Cameron Diaz was born in 1972 in San Diego, the daughter of a Cuban-American father and an Anglo-German mother. Self-described as “adventurous, independent and a tough kid,” Cameron left home at 16 and for the next 5 years lived in such varied locales as Japan.

Much before she did Sex Tape with Jason Segal, Diaz was actually into porn. She was only 19 when she acted in a soft porn video. Somehow Diaz is not very proud of her work and it is believed that she has even tried to bury the video.

3. Jackie Chan

There is hardly anything that he has not done during his struggling days. From being an extra to doing porn, Chan has done it all. He was a part of a 1975 Hong Kong made adult comedy film called All in the Family. 

4. Channing Tatum

Before he was one of Hollywood’s biggest actors, Channing Tatum was a male stripper under the name “Chan Crawford.” Okay, so he didn’t star in porn. But, did you know “Magic Mike” was loosely based on his stripper life? Now you do.

5. Kim Kardashian

Though she first became famous by association with Paris Hilton, the infamous Kim Kardashian became a household name after a sex tape of her and ex-boyfriend Ray J was distributed as a film. Though she sued and eventually dropped charges, it paved the way for her widely-known reality show, ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’. Talk about seizing opportunities!

6. Amber Rose

This is actually kind of sad. Before she was a hip-hop artist, fashion icon, and actress, Amber Rose performed a striptease at only 15 years old to help her family after her parents’ divorce left them financially disadvantaged.

7. David Duchovny

David William Duchovny was born on August 7, 1960, in New York City, New York, USA. His father, Amram Ducovny, was a writer and publicist who was from a family of Jewish immigrants (from Ukraine and Poland) and worked for the American Jewish Committee. His mother, Margaret (Miller), was a Scottish-born school teacher.

8. Marilyn Monroe

Although she wasn’t a porn star per se, Marilyn Monroe did pose nude for photos during a short decline in her career. It was the only time she was paid for nude photos. Though the porn of those days was tame compared to today’s standards, she was still an internationally known sex symbol that everyone’s husband, boyfriend, son, and next-door neighbor drooled over.

9. Arnold Schwarzenegger

The Terminator actor too had to struggle quite a bit before getting acknowledged. Although technically he was never a part of an adult film but he did pose for several pornographic shots for a magazine.

10.  Sunny Leone

Well last but not the least, almost everybody knows about her past. Before making her mark in Bollywood, she was a very successful porn star. She, along with her husband also ran a production house that made porn films.

Even after joining Bollywood, Sunny still remains a popular porn star. Unlike others, Sunny is neither ashamed of her past nor she tries to hide it.

Even though these actors were into porn, yet in no way it means that they had it the easy way.

11. Jamie Pressley

Jaime Pressley starred in Poison Ivy 3, which is either an erotic thriller or a softcore porn, depending on whether you talk to someone who worked on the movie or not.
