8 Porn Stars Who Left The Adult Film Industry And Managed To Go Legit

Porn stars eventually all leave the business. I mean, you don’t see too many octogenarian porn stars out there, do you? Well, maybe in certain fetish videos, but we won’t dwell on that unless we want to dig our brains out in horror with an ice scream scoop.

But the truth is that while most porn stars leave the business, they are still, essentially, well, porn stars. Very, very few of them go “legitimate.” At least in the sense that they find fame and/or fortune (or perhaps, more importantly, respect) in the entertainment business. But a few have, and it is these lucky souls we are gathered here to celebrate today. They are eight porn stars who actually managed to go legit.

Sasha Grey

Look, you all know who Sasha Grey is (that’s her in the photo above). Don’t lie to me even if you have to lie to your girlfriend. But what you might not know is that after her porn career, which featured starring roles in almost 200(!) films, Sasha left the biz to become a legit actress, and it’s actually worked out okay for her.

Her first “real” role was in the Steven Soderbergh movie, The Girlfriend Experience, in which she plays a prostitute. Okay, not a huge stretch, but still, it was a lead in a Steven Soderbergh movie. She also appeared in Entourage, as herself, which, again, still kinda tied to the whole dick taking thing, but since then she’s gone on to act in several films in which she isn’t essentially “lady who takes dick,” and really, isn’t that the dream?

Dany Verissimo

Dany Verissimo is a beautiful French actress probably best known for her role as Lola in the crossover hit District B13, which is one of those crazy Luc Besson action movies that plays in any language. And since then, she’s managed to carve out a fine career as an actress in France.

But before that, Dany Verissimo was known as Aly Mac Tyana, star of such films as Destroy Sex andExplicite, which I think were both directed by Martin Scorsese, but I’d have to double check. Anyway, yeah, she takes a lot of dick, which, to be honest, is a better plot than 90% of most “regular” movies.

Jackie Chan

Wait… Jackie Chan???

Yes, Jackie Chan. Apparently, back in 1975, Jackie was just a dude looking for work, and when the transcendent role of “Rickshaw Driver” became available in the Hong Kong “adult comedy” All in the Family, Jackie jumped all over that shit.

Jackie kept it hidden for a long time, but eventually people found out, leading Jackie to explain “I had to do anything I could to make a living 31 years ago, but I don’t think it’s a big deal, even Marlon Brando used to be exposed in his movies. The porn movie at that time was more conservative than the current films.”

Conservative porn. There. That’s the excuse you can use the next time your girlfriend goes through your search history.

But really, I think we can all agree that we’re gonna need to see those outtakes at the end of that movie of Jackie fucking up his stunts.

Spalding Gray

Spalding Gray had a ridiculously weird career. He was perhaps best known as the dude with the New England accent who made pretentious “monologue films” which involved him just sitting there telling stories. That’s it. That was the plot. Basically, he was a New Englandy version of Garrison Keillor.

Of course, he also made appearances in regular movies, as well as in the TV show, The Nanny, alongside Fran Drescher, which I’m guessing was even more embarrassing to him than his early role as George, a gang-leader in 1972’s porn, The Farmer’s Daughters, which involved (and I’m not making this up) gang-rape, piss-play and incest.

Look, if he could come back from that, then you should be able to come back from pretty much anything, okay? It doesn’t get any more legit than Spalding fucking Gray.

Kim Kardashian

Look, I had to do it, okay? And you know it’s true. Let’s just leave it at that.

Sibel Kekilli

Look, German porn is not something you want to mess around in. Those fuckers are weird. And yet, German porn-star “Dilara,” who was active in 2001-02 (porn stars typically have pretty short acting “lives” because they age every seven years for our one, it’s basic science) managed to get out of the scene and reinvent herself as a legit actress.

How legit? Well, after dropping her porn name and going back to her real name, Sibel Kekilli managed to land a role opposite the little pimp himself, Peter Dinklage, as Tyrion’s lover, Shae, in Game of Thrones. Yeah, that’s pretty fucking legit.

Kekilli has also done a variety of legit projects in her native Germany, and has successfully managed to leave behind her past as professional dick taker. Well, except for when assholes like me bring it up. Uh, sorry?

Sylvester Stallone

Wait… what the fuck?

Yes, much like Jackie Chan, Sylvester Stallone did what a lot of struggling actors do and made a porn because I guess he wanted to be able to afford food or whatever.

The movie was called The Party at Kitty and Stud’s and Sly played, well, the Stud. Pretty self-explanatory, right?

There is actually a lot of controversy around this one because it’s actually a soft-core porn (you know, no actual penetration shots) which isn’t really porn, right? Well, not so fast. It’s been claimed that the movie was originally hardcore and that Stallone gave the ladies his Cobra on film. Others say this is bullshit, butSnopes, that unassailable arbiter of what’s true and what’s bullshit on the Internet, says that it happened.

In the end, though, does it really matter? Stallone was on his way to a career as the early 70s version of a dude on the Bang Bus, and somehow managed to turn it around and win the whole damn game. Just like Rocky. Well, sort of, I guess. Maybe with a little more dick. Just a little bit, though. Who knows what Mickey got up to in deleted scenes?

Traci Lords

I’d tell you some of the porn movies that Traci Lords starred in, but I’m afraid I’d end up getting the BroBible offices raided, okay? That’s because Miss Lords was infamously underage at the time of her “career,” which I guess violated child-labor laws or something like that?

Anyway, Traci Lords is maybe the most infamous porn-star of all time thanks to the scandal that erupted, which makes it even more impressive that she managed to leave it all behind and go legit, landing a solid career as a character actress. Sure, she’ll always be “Traci Lords” and everything that means, but thanks to her tenacity, it also means someone who didn’t let the bastards get to her and made it happen her way. I’m not even being ironic here (okay, maybe a little) but isn’t that basically the American Dream?

Okay, fine, you’re right, it’s not, but still, to go from “underage porn star” to “legit Hollywood actress” is something exactly one person on Earth can say, and that person is Traci Lords.

Sasha Grey needs to have a daughter and we’ll all be waiting for when she turns 18.
