ABC News profiled nine adult performers who have crossed over to mainstream fame today in an online photo gallery.
"While these adult-movie stars' X-rated films may not be coming to a theater near you, the stars themselves are becoming household names," the article reads. "Book deals, feature film roles and reality shows have put these salacious stars on the Hollywood map and poised them for ample tabloid fodder."
ABC's list includes Jenna Jameson, Traci Lords, Mary Carey, Stormy Daniels, Ron Jeremy, Ginger Lynn, Seymore Butts and Belladonna. The gallery fails to include Tera Patrick, but oddly cites Turkish-German actress Sibel Kekilli, who appeared in adult films under the name Diara before starring in the German film Head On.
