10 Famous Stars Who Worked In Porn Before Making It Big

Even till this day, porn is seen as some kind of a taboo. Although everybody knows about it, nobody wants to speak about it. Porn stars do not receive the kind of accolades like a mainstream star. Some even view their profession as something not very respectable. Nonetheless, the adult film industry has given us some of our most loved stars.

Here is a list of some of our beloved stars who have been a part of an adult film. While some see it as an embarrassment, some don’t.

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.

Unlike other people on the list, Tom’s story is a little different. While most of the actors did porn before getting famous for Tom it has been the other way round. He has acted in some of most iconic films like “Saving Private Ryan” and “Black Hawk Down”.

Sadly, his career didn’t pan out the way he would have wanted and therefore he shifted his focus from Hollywood to porn.

He not only acts and produces porn films but he even has his own website.
