13 A-List Celebrities Who You Won’t Believe Have Appeared on Adult Films and Photo Shoots

To be great, you have to start from somewhere. Nobody is born great unless you are born to the Royal Family and quite honestly, you can still be very much average. Before most celebrities made it big in the entertainment industry, they had to struggle like every other person.

To make ends meet, some of these celebrities did one or two adult films or appeared on naughty photo shoots. Although some former adult film stars such as Sasha Grey, Jenna Jameson, James Deen, etc., have been transitioning lately into non-adult movies, we find it more interesting to see some A-list celebrities that did adult films before their careers skyrocketed. So here we go… You won't believe who made it in the list.

#1 - Cameron Diaz

One of the most gorgeous actress to ever grace the entertainment industry. She has made millions of people all over the world fall in love with her. Her eyes and smile are truly one of a kind. However, you most likely didn’t know that Diaz was a struggling artist before she came to the limelight? And guess what? She went into softporn.

During her early years in her career as an actress, she was unable to get lucrative acting gigs. To make ends meet, she appeared on soft pornography. In 1992, she did a bondage photo shoot and was featured in some soft porn. The good news is that she did not do this for long as luck would have it, her career as an actress, took a turn in the right direction.


#2 - Arnold Schwarzenegger

Before becoming a Gorvernor, Arnold did movies and even before that, he was known for a playboy bodybuilder. However, most of us remember Arnold from our childhood years, when every boy wanted to be an action movie hero just like him. Every girl had a crush on him as he was the ultimate sex symbol.

However, did you know that before Arnold became a big hit, it is claimed that he posed for some nude pictures, just to make some quick cash. It’s not hard to believe considering the playboy attitude Arnold had when he first arrived to US. Nobody knows where those photos went and till today there is still a reward for those photos by no other than Youporn.


#3 - Channing Tatum

When girls hear his name, they simply put, go crazy. However, when Channing Tatum was just 19 years old, you got to be all over his body and pay for a lap dance. At that time he was a male stripper at London Steele before he hit the spotlight. I guess his years as a male stripper really paid off when he appeared on the Magic Mike.
