The other night, I was flipping through the channels, and as usual on any given night in France there were about five or six soft porn movies on. However, that night, by chance, there was one with Penelope Cruz! I was shocked.

I've always heard of actors and actresses who have been in porno's, but I don't know which one's are true. Wasn't Stalone in a film called Italian Stallion? Arnold posed nude.

So what other actors/actresses did the porn route? Any?

Well, ahem......Traci Lords.......... I mean I've heard from someone that she used to do porn. It could just be a rumor ......................but this stack of bootleg movies says it ain't Oh baby.

Stallone's film was originally called Party at Kitty and Stud's but with the success of the first Rocky movie it was re-released and retitled.

Ron Jeremy has something of a non-porn acting carer, although I'd be willing to wager that few of his non-porn roles require much in the way of performance beyond "be recognizable as Ron Jeremy."

Kato Kaelin has some, but I doubt that's too shocking. Brian Heidik, who won the 5th Survivor, also appeared in softcore cable porn.

By the way, that first link with Penelope Cruz is quite NSFW.

Ever seen Shirley Temple's "Baby Burlesques," one baby step from kiddie porn? She plays "Madame Cradlebait" in Kid 'in' Africa (http://imdb.com/title/tt0023089/), "Morelegs Sweettrick" in Kid in Hollywood (http://imdb.com/title/tt0023090/), "Polly Tix" in Polly Tix in Washington (http://imdb.com/title/tt0023348/) . . .

Sarah Kozer, Joe Millionaire runner-up, is aka Cindy Schubert, fetish model.

Rhonda Shear, who used to have a show on USA cable called Up All Night, was also a fetish model back in the pre-internet days.

There was a pretty strong rumor, with some purported stills from a porn flick featuring Chuck Connors of The Rifleman fame. He also played baseball for a while. Which is harder to accept?

I've heard of one starring Shields and Yarnell (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shields_and_Yarnell ), who later had a comedy/mime/dance show on TV in the Seventies. No record of it in IMDB, though.

Well, I guess you have to have a meaningful definition of "celebrity" for this to work. Is "Sarah Kozar" a celebrity? If so, there are a LOT of celebrities who've done soft porn and fetish modelling.

Particularly, B-movie "scream queens" who do horror movies, often playing naked or near-naked damsels, show up in softcore and Internet porn as well. Michelle Bauer, for example, did a LOT of bondage modelling before becoming a scream queen. Same for scream queen Linnea Quigley. B-movie scream queen Julie Strain has done a LOT of softcore, and also some bondage modelling. In fact, there are a LOT of bondage models who've done softcore and B-movies, I suspect because they were very attractive women whom softcore producers, B-movie producers and porn site publishers found extremely appealing, but who didn't want to do hardcore either for personal or professional reasons.

Dana Plato's sad spiral downhill towards suicide included at least one soft-core film, which in a bald attempt to cash in on her prior celebrity was actually called "Different Strokes (http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0118979/)".

I think that's a bit of an overstatement. A lot of her films involved no tit revealing, or butt revealing, and her butt was definitely her strong point anyway. And she had a multi-year gig on General Hospital until they fired her for being pregnant.

Shu Qi, probably best known in the west as "the girl in the trunk" in The Transporter and Jackie Chan's girlfriend in Gorgeous, did some prior
Category III work in Hong Kong. for example, Sex and Zen II (highly recommended, by the way!) and Viva Erotica. She also has done some nude fashion/glamour shoots. I've got a coulple of them on DVD as well.

I got one for you. Rue McClanahan of the Golden Girls was in two sexploitation flicks back in the 60s: "Five Minutes To Love" and "Hollywood After Dark." It wasn't software as we now know it, but there was nudity and sex so what the hell.

These aren't porn, but they have some hot scenes...

Melinda Clarke - who most of us know from the OC and CSI (Lady Heather) was in Return to Two Moon Junction

Billy Zane - Lake Consequence

Sherilyn Fenn has been in a few

Alyssa Milano - Embrace of the Vampire

That's all I can think of

Oh, "Embrace of the Vampire" was softcore. Alyssa was rolling around naked with a couple of vampire chicks and a vampire guy, all at once, in one scene. For quite a while. Easily softcore.

Back in the '70s the line between legitimate and porn actors was a little more blurred than it is today.

Andrea True managed bit parts in 40 Carats and The Way We Were and TV commercials while she was doing porn. She also managed to breathe her way through a top 10 disco song.

Georgina Spelvin continued working on the New York stage while she was doing porn. She's had a couple of small roles in non-porn films, as well.

Angelique Pettyjohn, Star Trek's original alien chick in the metal bikini, managed to do some TV, B-movies and porn while also working as a Las Vegas showgirl.

Wasn't it the first actual MOVIE "Red Show Diaries" It is what spawned the series. I remember because the video store let me rent it when I was 13. Whoa. That was an awesome video store. It was the first time I had heard the term "cum".

Nicholas Cage was in a soft core called "Zanalee" if memory serves. Also burned into my memory because he assfucks the female lead in a church.

Not even really softcore, but Dean Butler (Little House on the Prairie, the New Gidget) was in a movie called "Married People, Single Sex 2", using a stage name (Sam Something that began with an S). A bunch of my LH friends and I rented it one night, and got a hoot out of it. It's pretty dumb and full of bad acting, but it was hilarious watching "Almanzo" playing this character who wasn't wild enough for his kinky wife, and has to figure out what to do about it. Go Moondoggie (LOL!)

Debra Winger's first movie was a sexploitation flick called Slumber Party '57 (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0076726/). A real classic. The only question is, a classic what?

Don't know about that one, but Joanna Lumley - from The New Avengers, Sapphire and Steel, and Absolutely Fabulous - had her first starring role in Games That Lovers Play (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0065756/) aka Lady Chatterly Versus Fanny Hill. Somewhat softcore, IIRC. She was quite lovely in that long-stemmed English rose sort of way.

Gillian Anderson was topless for a while in her debut in The Turning (maybe 20 seconds). Although the rest of the movie is pretty lame.

But since I'm in here...I haven't seen anyone mention Brooke Shields in "Pretty Baby." I'm not sure whether it would qualify as "(soft) porn," but there was nudity and implied sex and Brooke was only twelve years old at the time.

And it had Huggy Bear! That's gotta count for something.

What's wrong with you people? A movie with lots of sex scenes in not soft-core porn!!!!!! Summer Lovers was not porn, regardless of the fact it's got like 6 sex scenes and lots of nudity. Embrace of the Vampire, while hot, isn't even in the same planet as porn. As I see it those movies use sex to sell a sub-par, low budget movie. A B-movie indeed, but not soft-core porn.

Red Shoe Diaries is soft-core porn. The Emannuelle Series is indeed soft-core porn. Lady Chatterly's Lover is soft-core porn. In those movie the plot itself serves as nothing but a device to bridge the sex scenes.

On that note, I give you Emmanuelle In Space featuring the utterly and overwhelmingly gorgeous Krista Allen.

You raise an interesting point, fact is, there's no clear demarcator between softcore porn and mainstream movies any more. On the one hand, you have films like "Body Heat" and "Basic Instinct" which have strong sexual elements, but which most people would unhesitatingly concede are mainstream films. On the other hand, you have films like "The Key To Sex" and "I Like To Play Games, Too," which most people would readily identify as softcore but which have fun elements (frex, "Key To Sex" is actually lighthearted fun and works on its own terms as a bedroom farce, and "I Like To Play Games, Too" has a fascinating concept for its central character -- an ad agency owner who is so into games that she dumps her clients as soon as she beats them at a game).

Probably deserves its own thread, so I'll start one.
