Re: May 29, 2009: "The Porn Star Experience"
@Syd: while Sibil Kekilli worked in the porn industry, she never was famous for it until after the start of her mainstream acting career. So in her case, there is no "star factor" involved. She was instead addressed by a casting agent while shopping (why does this never happen to me?
). A better example would be Michaela Schaffrath (aka Gina Wild), who became a celebrity while doing porn and switched to acting (mostly TV work) later.
I think this makes a difference - like you or me playing basketball at school compared to Michael Jordan. Only that playing basketball isn't likely to cause a scandal, while Sibil Kekilli doing porn was a feast for the yellow press...
