Salena Harshini |Jul 13, 2020

These celebrities were broke and they worked as porn stars to make ends meet. Some of them got unexpectedly rich and infamous, while others became the icon of all time.

It is usually tough to start a career in the entertainment industry. Although there are actors who struggle and give up, these lads don’t. These are the famous, even top-notch stars who are porn stars turned actors and you will be surprised by a few of these celebrities.

Way before they turn up and stir up the red carpet, they worked for a number of adult movies.

10. Sasha Grey

The actress is best known for her roles in Open Windows, The Girlfriend Experience, and the Entourage show.

Before becoming an actress, she had been a porn star since the age of 18. Within 2006 and 20122, she used to be among the most popular X-rated movie stars of her generation. Today, her videos are still in demand.

Sasha Grey as an adult star is still a talked-about topic

Now, she has been a mainstream model, author actress, and musician who mostly appears on ads, campaigns, and TV shows.

9. Sunny Leone

Sunny Leone is one of the most known porn stars turned actors as she is now a famous actress in India.

The Indian-American stunner who starred in lots of porno before was named among the top 12 erotica stars in 2010.

She has now earned blessings for her career and family

She ventured into Bollywood, doing some major roles in cult movies, and receives a lot of respect as a Bollywood celebrity. She now has a happy family with an endearing husband and three children.

8. David Duchovny

David who is also one of those porn stars turned actors started his job by featuring in an ep of The Red Shoes, a famous pornographic series.

David Duchovny used to be a porno actor before getting his breakthrough in "X-Files"

The actor made it big after appearing in Californication and X-files in which he proved to be an extremely good actor.

7. Kim Kardashian

This one in the list is not that surprising as her scandalous X-rated video was quite well-known. She did not work as a porn star but her sex tape with her ex accidentally graced the Internet.

Kim Kardashian
Not a porn star but she did become famous after this

The tape was displayed on certain X-rated sites and was even up for sale. Although Kim Kardashian sued the company that uploaded the video, it is inarguable that this was a good beginning to all that she has right now.

6. Marilyn Monroe

The ill-fated beauty of Hollywood was a part of porn at the early stages of her career.

When Marilyn’s career did not seem to take off, she decided to pose nude for a photographer just to receive an unreasonably small sum after.

She then went on to do some porn movies and this was kept incredibly discreet for years. At that point, Marilyn Monroe has carved a niche for herself and became internationally famous as a sex symbol and icon.

Once she became among the most influential Hollywood actresses, she never did adult films again.

5. Sylvester Stallone

The action star also struggled, hard, at the start of his career. Sylvester Stallone was in an erotic movie called The Party at Kitty and Stud's after which he was referred to as The Italian Stallone.

The money he got from doing porno was what helped him get his sense together after getting kicked out of his apartment and being homeless.

Rocky
Even Sylvester Stallone had to do pornos because he was broke

When the actor auditioned for Rocky, the rest is history.

4. Sibel Kekilli

Sibel Kekilli is a famous actress best known for her role as Shae in the cult series Game of Thrones. Some fans may be shook to see her name here.

She did a number of pornos when she was in Germany long before her GoT days. Sibel Kekilli was a successful adult film star and even bagged some awards.

"GoT" star was also in adult movies before having her big break

Her parents stopped talking to her upon finding out her nude tapes all across the Internet. Today, she is working as a budding and serious actress. Will she return to porn? No one knows.

3. Jackie Chan

Can you imagine martial arts star Jackie Chan in porno? We couldn’t, though.

He came to porn as a solution to his struggles back in the day. He was in a Hong Kong-made movie in 1975 titled All in the Family.

Jackie Chan also had a naughty past. Him in the porn stars turned actors list, who would have known?

Jackie Chan is pretty much the sole Asian actor who became a Hollywood bigwig… and had a porn history. His first big break was the Snake in the Eagle’s Shadow movie and since then, he never got involved in erotica again.

2. Cameron Diaz

This Hollywood beauty, also Shrek’s muse Fiona, was a porn star? Can anyone believe this?

Cameron Diaz
Cameron Diaz is absolutely breathtaking

She was just 19 when she began her porn actor career. Cameron Diaz began with making a soft-core smut clip prior to doing a real-life tape (Sex Tape movie) with Jason Segal.

She was nowhere near proud of her X-rated star days. She was demanded with a whole $3.5 million from the porno video owners when she wanted the sex tape to be cleared out. The price consisted of completely wiping the tape from the net as well as taking them off the shelves in sex stores.

Cam
That Diaz was one of the porn stars turned actors was not known to many

When Cameron Diaz got a role in The Mask, her time of working as a porn actress was simply forgotten. She has now become a credited actress who has big-time blockbusters in her hand.

1. Matt LeBlanc

Joey was a small part of a sex tape, but Matt Le Blanc ACTED in porn movies. This may come as one of the most astonishing porn stars turned actors list.

Matt
Who knows Matt LeBlanc was actually one of the porn stars turned actors?

The Friends star also has a hard time at the start of his career. That was why he entered the adult world.

Before becoming a "someone" in the cinema industry, he did a number of soft porn movies. For the unversed, one of the shows he was in was The Red Shoe Diaries which also featured David Duchovny as mentioned.
