11 Hollywood Stars Who Got Their Start In Skin

Most Hollywood celebrities are very careful with their public image, and wouldn’t step near a pornography set; they have enough problems to deal with as it is. Whether it’s a nasty rant on-set, a leaked photo from an affair in Cancun, or a disastrous trip to Arby’s, having one’s carefully constructed image sullied in the public eye can be disastrous. It’s no surprise they’ve tried to hide it, but the truth is some very well known celebrities got their start in porn. Our own original series, “Blue Movies” doesn’t mind as much, and draws inspiration from those celebrities who have gone “Blue.” In that vein, here are 14 celebs, be they action heroes or Oscar winners, that got their start in show business by getting busy.

You make the call.
