From Porn Star to Super Star

Award-winning porn starĀ Sasha Grey has been on demand ever since the start of her career at only eighteen. She has since appeared in hundreds of adult films including Pirates II: Stagnetti’s Revenge and Homo Erectus. Sex aside, she has also turned to modelling – appearing in ads for American Apparel and PETA.

What most people don’t expect however, was how a well-known porn star actually made her way into the mainstream. While watching an episode of Entourage the other day, I was surprised to find Grey playing a fictionalized version of herself. The writers portray her as being a witty porn star who gets involved with Vince (Adrian Grenier). In between lines of coke and nude scenes, she makes sure to point out that she can be literate and love sex at the same time (sigh). My favorite scene involves Grey, in nothing but Vinces’ white dress shirt, flipping pancakes and talking literature. Shortly after she decides to a shot of tequila. Classic.

Academy Award-winning director Steven Soderbergh’s also decided to cast Grey in his film The Girlfriend Experience where she plays – what else – an escort. Perhaps her connection to the mainstream is still very much tainted by her porn background but there is no denying her star power. Though “super star” might be a bit of a stretch after all.
