Montana Fishburne Regrets Doing Porn, Cautions Against The Industry

Montana Fishburne cautions against porn industry

Montana Fishburne, the daughter of The Matrix star Laurence Fishburne, is cautioning young women against going into the porn industry.

Fishburne made headlines in 2010 when she entered the adult film industry at the age of 18. She said she was inspired by Kim Kardashian’s success, which she believed was “due to the release of her sex tape by Vivid.” She said she hoped the “same magic” would help launch her career, and that she was “impatient” about making a name for herself.

Montana Fishburne said her father was “very hurt” by her decision to go into porn, but she believed he would eventually see it as a positive. That day never came, and Fishburne said her father cut ties with her and that she was “no longer welcome in his life” because of her decision.

In early August 2010, Fishburne tried to block the distribution of a gonzo adult film featuring her and porn actor Brian Pumper. Her legal team contacted Pumper, who Fishburne said leaked the “rehearsal footage,” which was never supposed to be released. Vivid released Fishburne’s official porn debut, Montana Fishburne: An A-List Daughter Makes Her XXX Debut, on August 10, 2010.

“You may end up having a really sucky life.”

However, Fishburne’s plan didn’t go exactly as planned. Now 22, she warned that porn is not the path to fame and success.

“I don’t encourage people to go into the porn industry. You’re not going to be famous, or be a movie star. You may end up having a really sucky life,” she said.

“If you look at the celebrity sex tape, these girls are not your average girl next door jumping into porn and for the average girl to get into porn and have those results won’t happen,” she added. “You have to look at where you come from.”

Montana Fishburne said she now has a new plan: to get an education. She also said that any young women seriously considering a porn career need to have a “very clear head” about what it entails.

“My idea is go to school and have life experience but don’t just jump into something blindly and have a big pay day,” she said. “If you’re going to be going into porn, you have to have a very clear head.”

“A very untrustworthy business.”

Jasmine Waltz, a model best known for dating David Arquette and Ryan Seacrest, also warned that porn does not pay as well as people think. Waltz released her sex tape, Real Jasmine, for Exquisite in 2011, but said she didn’t see any profit. She also confirmed that Montana Fishburne got a raw deal after her sex tape was released.

“Vivid told me they would give $125,000 and 25 percent of the back end, all the sales that are made. Basically, you’ll never see the back end after advertisement. You won’t get the money. It’s a very untrustworthy business,” she said. “Lawrence Fishburne’s daughter got burned really, really bad. She got $60,000 dollars and never saw another penny.”

    Nice to know the future of the world is in the hands of people like her. This must be Generation Pigs.

    Glad she appears to have come to her senses, but it's saddening that she couldn't come to those conclusions BEFORE actually doing the tapes. Did she really need to experience porn to know that it wasn't going to lead to mainstream fame and fortune?

    Paris Hilton, Pam Andrrson and Kim Kardashian had their tapes "leaked" (purposely or not). Secondly, they were with men with whom they had long-term, intimate relationships. Thirdly, they had built names for themselves in some other way. Kim-K had dyed Ray-J publicly for awhile, Pam Anderson was already a mainstream star, and Paris Hilton had been modeling in runways all over the world.

    All Montanafish had to do was go to NYU Tisch School of Performing Arts, Juliard, A.C.T., or even UCLA's School of Theater and Television.

    They all would have admitted her just because of her father.

    She could have even auditioned for America's Next Top Model, and that would have been a better road.

    She had the biggest advantage in the world: an A-List father with big connections! And she's even attractive…no need for her to do what Kim-K did at all. I would bet that she has some of her gather's acting chops, too. Kim-K is no role model, and she has no talent. We are all waiting for her to disappear. Why would Montanafish want to be like her of all people? Smdh!

    $60,000 for a couple hours of work. Man I wish someone would give me that kind of raw deal.
