Five of the sexiest women to trade in porn star glory for Hollywood fame.

While porn movies are of course synonymous with poor parody storylines, endless awful euphemisms, and scenes of hardcore sexual acts, the stars acting in them are even less believable when saying their lines or acting out the initial story line. However, a number of porn stars have now moved into mainstream TV shows and movies successfully. It would appear working in the adult entertainment industry may well have given a selection of women the acting skills to make a career in the mainstream film industry.

The amount of adult movies these film stars rack up in their careers would suggest their acting skills would surely have been greatly enhanced, and their confidence levels in front of a camera are rather obvious considering the acts they have performed. Many people will have been scratching their heads and thinking, “I feel like I know her from somewhere.” when seeing an  adult film star-turned-mainstream actress in a TV show or movie, and with a growing number making the switch, the trend looks set to continue. So without further adieu, these five women have gone from porn to mainstream entertainment.

Although her name is not well known, Qi has starred alongside Jason Statham in The Transporter. The Taiwanese actress has made a number of mainstream movies since ending her career in pornography with The Transporter and The Eye 2 being the most notable of her work. Qi has even won multiple awards for the movies she’s been in post-porn. She’s been nominated best actress on eight occasions and has won once. Qi was once synonymous with mainstream work in such films like Viva Erotica, Sex & Zen II, and has appeared in the Chinese version of Playboy. While the majority of her work have been Asian films, she’s nevertheless successfully made the transition from porn star to mainstream actress.

4. Traci Lords

Traci Lords’ transition of porn star to actress is quite fascinating. After having appeared in a number of adult films, some of which were performed when she was underage, she went on to transform herself into a very successful mainstream actress. She appeared in: I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, Zack & Miri Make a Porno, and Devil May Call, not to mention the dozens of other productions from 1988, most notably, Blade. Traci Lords is now a name perhaps more ubiquitous with mainstream films than pornography and has been used as a voice in a number of video games, making her a woman with many talents.

Karenjit Kaur Vohra, or better known as Sunny , is now enjoying minor success as a mainstream actress. Many people might recognize her after featuring in mainstream films such as The Girl Next Door, Pirate’s Blood, and The Virginity Hit. Sunny is now working in Hindi movies but she remains popular in Hollywood. With films such as Shut Up And Fuck Me in her porn repertoire, Sunny will certainly been keen to end the type-casting as she is very keen to be taken seriously in the mainstream film industry. Having won a cluster of awards from the world of porn during her stint in adult entertainment, Sunny now wants to make a similar impact with her upcoming films to be released.

Yes, ‘Shea’ from Game of Thrones as many might recognize, Sibel Kekilli was a German porn star before turning mainstream. Sibel has now successfully made the transition and has appeared in a number of projects since quitting adult entertainment. While best known for Game of Thrones, she’s also featured in 10 other roles, mostly German films. Her good performances in the movies has led her to win awards for Best Actress in four of them. It would certainly seem she’s making the best of a new lease on life, and her past career is being put firmly behind her. She was outed as an ex-porn star back in 2004, and her parents back then broke off all contact with her. But it’s barely spoken about now, and as a result not many people realize Shea’s porn star past.

1. Sasha Grey

Avid followers of Entourage won’t be so surprised to see this particular lady having been an ex-porn star, but for the people who have only seen her in such works as The Girlfriend Experience and I Melt With You, this will be a nice surprise. Sasha Grey, real name Marina Ann Hantzis, spent five years in adult entertainment before retiring in 2011. The woman synonymous for having dead eyes and no gag reflex is now forging a career in keeping her clothes on. Having already been in 11 mainstream movies, minor parts and a lead role, Sasha has become a minor success in making the transition. While her acting skills may have been called into question regarding her previous profession, not that I’d noticed to be honest, now she’s starting to convince the masses she can become a serious actress.
