Here are a few actors who went on to do adult filming:
Sylvester Stallone: Before he became an action movie superstar, Sylvester Stallone appeared in a softcore adult film called “The Party at Kitty and Stud’s” (later retitled “The Italian Stallion”). The film was made in 1970, and Stallone reportedly received $200 for his role. The film was later re-released to capitalize on Stallone’s fame, but he has distanced himself from the project and said he regrets doing it.
Jackie Chan: Before becoming an international movie star, Jackie Chan appeared in several adult films named “Big Brother.” He has since stated that he did the movie out of desperation and has regretted his past actions.
David Duchovny: In 2008, actor David Duchovny checked into rehab for sex addiction. It was later revealed that he had affairs with several women, including porn actress Lanny Barby. Duchovny has since repaired his image and returned to acting, but the incident remains a stain on his record.
