"I am not in porn to get into acting. I am in porn because I wanted to be in porn." - Montana Fishburne, a.k.a. Chippy D
Contradicting previous statements she's made about making her adult film debut to launch her career a la Kim Kardashian, Laurence Fishburne's daughter Montana now says she became a porn star at age 19 ... just because.
"Being in an adult film is not a big deal to me," Montana Fishburne tells People, claiming this has always been a dream (yikes). "It's something I always wanted to do. I have always been comfortable in my body and with my sexuality."
She's not hoping her adult film, which will be released by Vivid Entertainment August 10, will spawn a mainstream acting career. Probably a good thing, too.
Laurence Fishburne starred in Mission: Impossible III. Similarly, teenage daughter Montana Fishburne has set her sights on Missionary: Position.
"I had already filmed it by the time they knew so I didn't give them a chance to talk me out of it," she says of the Chippy D sex tape, which she made after turning 18 "so I could pursue what I want without being constrained by them."
Her father is understandably devastated, she confesses - and even offered to pay $1 million to Vivid to purchase ALL copies and block its shipment.
Unfortunately, according to a report on TMZ, his lawyer, Yale Galanter, got through to Vivid a little too late and the sex tapes had left the premises.
"I hear through relatives that he's upset but I haven't talked to him directly for him to tell me his feelings," Montana admits. "I hope it's not hurting him. This wasn't done to hurt him. I think it will take time and talking through the issues."
"Eventually, I hope he will be proud of me."
A rep for Laurence declined comment.
