Despite being a religious woman, Katie Morgan dumped her values and entered into an adult industry for financial reasons – police nabbed her with 100 pounds of marijuana as she tried to smuggle the drugs from Mexico into the USA back in 2000. So, she needed to pay off bail and plea bargain. With that settled, she continued in the pornographic industry and made many adult movies before quitting unofficially in 2008. Since then she’s appeared in Entourage, and Kevin Smith’s mainstream Zack and Miri.

Simon Rex

Famously called Dirt Nasty, Rex has so many talents – he raps, acts, cracks jokes, models. He also worked as MTV VJ and is Paris Hilton’s associate. However, he started out in showbiz with a role in three solo films that focused on a gay market. Only at 19,  he began masturbating alone for money. Beside the fapping scenes for three Club 1821 pornographic films: Young, Hard & Solo #2, Young, Hard & Solo #3, and Hot Sessions III, the star also modelled naked. Amazingly, none of the films or nude modelling ruined his career in the least. Subsequently, the rapper has played in numerous films and had roles on several mainstream TV series, including Scary Movie 3, 4 and 5, and Baywatch.

Cameron Diaz

But before climbing to stardom with roles in The Mask (1994), My Best Friend’s Wedding (1997) and There’s Something About Mary (1998), the beautiful celebrity acted a steamy movie.  Sounds surprising huh? Of course! But at a ripe age of 19, Diaz played a role in a soft-core erotica where she flaunted what she’s got. In the movie, she wore a boob-exposing body suit while yanking a shirtless dude by a chain.

Long before the action movie legend, Sylvester Stallone broke big with Rocky, Sylvester Stallone was a struggling 24-year-old actor  urgently looking for what to do. Then, the movie icon was really broke and even homeless so he agreed to star in a softcore film called Party at Kitty and Stud’s that was later renamed The Italian Stallion. With the $200 he received from the movie, he was able to get a place over his head. But after some years, many who wanted to gain from it billed it as a hardcore sex film and even added hardcore scenes featuring actors that appear to be Stallone. However, the truth remains that it’s merely a highly boring and amateurish softcore affair.
