Porn Stars Who Made the Leap to Mainstream Hollywood

Published

Traci Lords

There was a time when Hollywood was synonymous with glamour and good taste. Not any more.

These days it’s hard to tell the difference between a shining star and a faulty beer light. Gone are the days when Hollywood idols were cut from a different cloth. Now it’s all tattoos, squishy black leather yoga pants and tongue piercings.

And, of course, we’re all for it.

If you can believe it, not too long ago, any man or woman who sank to the level of appearing in a porno movie (sorry, “Adult Film”) was automatically barred from being in any high budget film or TV show because of the “stigma” involved.

But, as it turns out, even in porn, story is everything and acting brings it to life. It just depends on how much anal is involved.

Bodacious boobs, a giant schlong or a big twist at the end can only go so far. You have to believe…

That’s why some “actors” make the leap from the depths of porn hell to the pearly gates of Hollywood.

Here are 5 women (and one dude for the ladies) who beat the odds (and lots of bare butts) by parlaying a stint in porn into a career in what is laughingly still referred to as “legitimate” Hollywood.

Back in the 80s, Traci Lords lied about her age and performed in dozens of wildly popular porno movies, bankrupting several studios and sending some producers to jail. She went on to “star” in some B-Movies before gaining true respect as an actress on TV in shows including Melrose Place, Rosanne and Blade.

Jenna Jameson conquered Hollywood with her good looks, sense of humor, and propensity for hooking up with major movie stars. Demonstrating a flair for writing, she’s lately been known for appearances on a variety of reality TV shows.

Sunny Leone is so Sexy!

Sunny Leone has completed one of the strangest career transitions after quitting porn and landing juicy roles in some box office hits, then going on to a successful run in some of the most popular Bollywood films in the past decade.

After spending a decade as a popular porn actress going by the name of Dilara, Sibel Kekilli landed a plum role on HBO’s Game of Thrones and is earning raves for her acting talent.

Sasha Grey basically played herself in her early movies, cast mostly as a call girl and sex maniac. She became truly famous as a popular character on the cable series Entourage.

the porn Legend Ron Jeremy

ONE FOR THE LADIES:

Parlaying his unique talent of giving himself a BJ into a quasi-respectable non-porm career, Ron Jeremy sucked the rest of Hollywood in by becoming chums with lots of other entertainment heavyweights. He’s made a fortune touting adult products and even made an appearance in The Godfather: Part III.

Was the XXXTentacion murder a hit? By Drake?

Was the Xxxtentacion murder a hit?

Soon after rapper XXXTentacion was murdered on Monday, police were quick to say they thought it was a robbery gone bad by three men who committed a crime of opportunity.

But just days later, rumors are swirling that the murder was really a hit because of eyewitness accounts leaking onto the web.

The story goes like this:

XXXTentacion, without his bodyguards, visited a Miami motorcycle dealership and was followed into the parking lot by 3 men in an SUV. They exited the lot and parked down the street.

A short time later, as XXXTentacion was driving away, they blocked his vehicle, ran up and shot him three times below the neck and, without stealing anything, quickly drove off.

The witnesses swear it was a hit because… the guns were equipped with silencers.

But, it gets even more bizarre.

Now there’s a rumor flying that Drake was allegedly behind the “hit” because his song, “I’m Upset” has lyrics eerily predictive of the actual murder.

In it, he calls out XXX by name and threatens to shoot him three times “below the neck.”

Despite what the cops are saying, most people believed from the very beginning it had to be an organized hit.

We might soon find out.

Just yesterday police arrested tattoo artist Dedrick D. Williams for the crime and were executing warrants for two other men wanted for questioning.

Drake wasn’t one of them…

Kristen Wiig is really busy these days.

Because her upcoming schedule is so packed, she’s had to pick between starring in an AppleTV series or a lead role in Wonder Woman 2.

Care to guess which one she chose?

Duh!

WW2, natch!

That’s not to say the AppleTV show (You Think It, I’ll Say It) wouldn’t have been hilarious and a critic’s and audience darling too. It’s just that, well, you know… it’s Wonder Woman!

Actually, she won’t be playing the title character.

Kristen Wiig is going to be stretching her wings (again) as the supervillain Cheetah.

Although she’s played some pretty dark characters in the past, we should get to see another dimension of her unique talent as she plays against both sides of the light.

Unless you’ve been hiding under a jock for the last decade or so, Kristen Wiig has been lighting up both the big and little screens after knocking them dead on Saturday Night Live and moving on to movies with her impressive starring (and writing) turn in Bridesmaids.

As if her decision wasn’t anguishing enough, it turns out Kristen Wiig has plenty more to stress over.

She’ll be doing her first musical with Will Ferrell called “Everything’s Coming Up Profits” and scribing a new movie with writing partner Annie Mumolo titled “Barb and Star go to Vista Del Mar.”

And, oh yeah, a voiceover in the upcoming animated film “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” and another dramedy called “Where’d You Go, Bernadette?”

Whew! That’s some sked!

If she keeps this up she’ll be so famous that when she goes out in public, Kristen will have to wear dark glasses and a.. Wiig?

Sorry. Couldn’t resist…

“Lauren, you’ve been there through my toughest times. You’re my best friend and my better half. I wouldn’t be the man I am today without you by my side.”

Then he did the damn thing. He got down on one knee and proposed. She said yes, and the two sat at the decorated table full of cupcakes, doughnuts, and amazing pastries.
