Montana Fishburne says she’ll never regret doing porn

Laurence Fishburne’s 18 year-old daughter, Montana, has her first professional sex tape coming out with porn company Vivid and she’s very proud. I’ve seen some previews and it’s pretty much your standard no-holds-barred adult film. Montana looks and “acts” much older than the teenager she is and she wants to get recognition for her work. She’s done interviews with several media outlets, including a video interview with E! (above). In the talk with E!’s Giuliana Rancic, Montana admits that she hasn’t spoken to her dad since the news broke that she was putting out the tape. She didn’t tell him herself, and says she understands if he’s upset, hurt or mad because “that’s his daughter having sex on tape.” Montana is very nonchalant about the situation and says she’s sure she’ll work it out with her dad. “He’s not going to stop loving me or stop talking to me just because that’s what my job is.” She says their relationship “will be back to normal” when the media attention dies down.

Montana also says that she’s “never going to regret” doing porn because “wherever it takes me, I’m just going to make a positive out of it.” She does have a minor regret, though. “The only thing I wish I could take away was the pain it will give my family… besides that I’m thrilled.” She’s very upbeat and friendly in the interview and you can tell that she’s loving the attention. Here’s E!’s report. It’s worth noting that Montana is also changing her tune about following in Kim Kardashian’s footsteps. She’s talking to E!, after all, which puts out the Kardashian family reality show. Now Montana’s role model is porn star Sasha Grey:

montana3She last spoke with [her dad] the morning of his birthday, July 30, as it was later that day that word of her headline-grabbing career change made the rounds. When asked if they’d spoken since, she demurred.

“Not right about this situation, ’cause he doesn’t want it all out there,” she said. “I’ve had communication with him, but not about the tape.”

As that communication has mostly taken the form of unanswered emails, she is more than aware of the effect her decision is having on him, admitting that “he might be mad, he might be hurt.”

“For him, it’s his reputation, because we are linked together…I understand that. It’s hard for any dad to see their daughter on tape like that. I understand, but at the same time I want him to understand that this is my dream.”

Though it will, she’s sure, have a happy ending.

“I definitely think we’ll get through this. I don’t want to just do porn and even if I did just want to do porn, he’s not going to stop loving me or stop talking to me just because this is what my job is. He’s upset right now.

“After all the media attention subsides about the release of it, he’ll want to talk and it’ll be back to normal.”

And the 18-year-old Montana, who incidentally has a “supportive” boyfriend and whose parents only found out about her X-rated career choice once the Vivid press release was sent, said that she doesn’t intend to remain in porn her whole life.

Modeling and acting—while neither put the “stars in my eyes” that porn does—are both possibilities, as are more fiscally solid opportunities.

“I definitely want to have my own business, that’s definitely what I’m about. The entertainment industry is fun and I like it, but in the long term, I want to have some kind of business, whether it’s in entertainment or outside. I definitely want to have some kind of empire.”

Hmm…like a certain E! reality star we know? Not quite, as it turns out.

“Everyone’s like, ‘Kim Kardashian, Kim Kardashian.’ No. That is not whose career I want to emulate. I would say [porn star turned Entourage babe] Sasha Grey.”

[From E! Online]

“Everyone” was not like “Kim Kardashian,” Montana was! She cited Kim as an influence in her statement from Vivid and in at least one additional interview. This girl seems so bubbly and naive about the whole thing. To her, it’s a natural extension of how she’s been exploring her sexuality since losing her virginity at 16. (She says it’s been “four years” in the video above, but she’s not yet 19, so she’s either really bad at math or fudging the dates.) I would feel badly for her if she wasn’t so damn happy about the whole thing. It looks like it’s working out just how she wanted – for now. We’ll see how happy and upbeat she is in a couple of years.

    Dumb as a box of rocks-hope she survives this choice, but likely not.

  2. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    I can’t imagine why anyone needs to feel badly for her. Montana doesn’t look unhappy or anything. She is happy. If only many of us could be as happy as she is right now. Montana is getting what she wants and she is thrilled about it. If she can act maybe people will give her a chance at mainstream. Honestly if she comes to regret her choices in 5 or 10 years oh well. Once your 18 you have free rein of your life. Its easy to fudge up in the early stages. I did some crazy sh*t at 18 let me tell you. I feel like Montana is also really comfortable about her sexuality, like I am. People think porn is all unprotected sex and degradation, I don’t think that.

    Sacha Grey has done alot of porn and its all hardcore, but she has also done some mainstream work. She currently plays Vince’s porn star gf on Entourage this season. Maybe Montana can make it to mainstream, she is really bubbly and very pretty. People love that.

  3. Tess says:

    She needs the dough to fix her schnozz.

    Seriously. I’ve seen pix where it’s amazingly (given the fact that her father must have enough money to pay for a nose job) assymmetrical.

  4. The Truth Fairy says:

    The minute you say you’ll never regret doing something, is the minute you’ve already started to regret it.

  5. Richi says:

    She will regret the choice down the line.Doesn’t she want to get a college education and focus on studies!!??! Dumb as bricks!

  6. Richi says:

    Watching her talk in the video shows how immature she is! as if she is in a dream/fantasy world. She’s pretty looking….

  7. Westcoaster says:

    She will regret it when her children see her film on the internet or when her daughter says she wants to be a porn actress.

  8. snowball says:

    One of the things the people who’ve made it past their careers in porn into true mainstream media have all had in common is a degree of talent that I doubt Montana Fishburne possesses.

    She’s getting her press and sadly, I’m starting to see she’ll be getting some notoriety out of this, but there’s not going to be anything coming out long-term, except the loss of her relationship with her father.

  9. Kitten says:

    @LoveAngelina-I can’t speak for other commenters but I don’t personally think that porn is “evil” or “wrong”. That being said, I think it’s pretty out-of-touch to think that she’s ever going to have a mainstream acting career out of this. Many people do crazy things at 18 (myself included) but the problem is when you videotape these things-you are basically creating a timecapsule of your transgressions that you can’t take back. The issue then becomes a question of whether at 18 you really have the ability to realize the consequences and impact of your behavior. At 31 years old I can tell you that hindsight is 20/20 and yeah, if you’re planning on having a legitimate career in the film industry (not sure if she is or not) then this is probably not the most appropriate path.

  10. Toe says:

    You can clearly see she wants this. She’ll win a pretty damn buck out of this. She really wants all the attention and the hype she is creating right now. How many people realeased a sextape and became famous? ALOT. So this is no exception.

  11. meme says:

    that’s right, keep giving this moron the attention she craves.

  12. texasmom says:

    Yes, 18-year-olds never expect to regret anything, ever. Exhibit A: Levi and Bristol.

  13. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    She is an idiot.

    End of story.

  14. Katie says:

    I just can’t imagine porn being your dream. I feel bad for her family. I think my father would literally off himself I decided to do a porno.

  15. Cam says:

    I don’t know if she will regret it or not, but she sure wants all the attention she’s getting, and it’s all going according to her plan. I’m not sorry for her, because she seems so happy about the whole thing that she can’t even admit that the relationship with her father will never be the same; besides, she disgusts me, but that’s personal.

  16. Leticia says:

    I wonder if there has ever been a female porn star who had a normal, healthy relationship with a father that she saw every day.

  17. Feebee says:

    Oh, I think this is one of those moments where “never say never” has never been truer.

  18. mamalama says:

    How proud of your career choice are you if your parents had to find out in a press release? Hello…the little person in your head is already questioning it, but you’re stuck with your choice now. Good luck with that.

  19. journey says:

    the initial publicity about her new career was released on daddy’s birthday? freud would have a field day with that one!

  20. j. ferber says:

    Wasn’t she arrested for prostitution two years ago and in a plea deal it was changed to trespass? How’s that for a red flag? But it wasn’t made public, so I guess that made everything okay for the parents? The girl obviously has big issues. Her dad, reportedly, tried to buy up the copies of the tape, but to no avail. I hope his public embarrassment is not his biggest concern, though. Attend to your daughter!

  21. original kate says:

    can we stop giving this attention whore attention?

  22. ligeia says:

    what a waste. she looks so cute and natural and innocent. couple more years and she’ll have fake tits/whatever other hideous plastic surgery pornstars get and will look 10 years older than she really is.

  23. valerie says:

    this girl is being honest! unlike kim k. or paris hilton who “act” like they’re mortified of their sex tapes…..but this is horrible. nobody thinks anything is bad so…wat do u expect?

  24. autotron says:

    As if we needed physical evidence that the media’s obsession with Paris Hilton/the Kardassians would turn out horribly and scar young women forever.

  25. Jover says:

    While she’s gettig buzz for the moment she won’t get the mileage out of this that she thinks as lots are doing this lame sex/porn tape thing (suprise the public kid and get a degree in the sciences); the market for crass, lowbrow moronic behavior is pretty filled up right now and with apparently no talent and no intellect even the snooki’s of the world will garner more media buzz than her.

  26. Gabriela says:

    can’t even do simple math.

    “i’ve been thinking about it since i was 16, so that’s 4 years of creation”.

    she’s 18 now.

  27. Rosanna says:

    Bad case of a “regular” kid… raised to be loved “no matter what” she can’t even understand that a parent can be disgusted at his daughter’s choice and that CAN change that relationship forever. She would have been better off saying: “I understand my dad is upset and if he doesn’t want to speak to me so be it. It hurts but I understand choices come with consequences”. Nowadays kids expect to be accepted “no matter what” even when they do become despicable persons.

  28. chasingadalia says:

    “I’m open to anything.”

    Anyone else’s inner 13 year old boy giggle when she said that?

  29. d says:

    @ Rosanna: EXACTLY. I see this EVERYWHERE. It’s done those kids a huge misservice, and causes grief to anyone who has to deal with their reality check when it hits them. She may be happy now, but the pron will wear you down – the concern people feel is that she’ll lose whatever happiness and innocence and whatever else qualities that make her so attractive now. Sure she’s all for it and open. Get back to me in 5 years.

  30. Confuzzle says:

    Hang on. We’re still saying videotape and tape? Really? *looks at calendar*

  31. cutelittlehappything says:

    I’m sure I’ll be ostracized, but here goes: SO WHAT? She’s an adult, and despite what everyone says about her being immature, she actually seems to have gone about her chosen career path as well as she can, and acknowledges how others might feel while defending her choice. This is how she wants to earn her living. I wouldn’t do it, (and I wouldn’t want my children in any part of it), but she is working in porn (for now), and if she is happy and truly wants it, then good for her. She’s an adult who is earning money in a legal manner, and that’s that.

  32. d says:

    So what? Well, I don’t know. I guess I feel empathy and sad for her and her future. I fear for her. I feel compassion for her as a human being. I get that she’s an adult and all (albeit a young one – I thought I knew it all at her age too). But I can still can fear for her and hope that she has a good quality of life, instead of the bad one it turns out to be for so many people. I’m not one of those people that thinks the porn business is a great business for women in general. SOME women might do ok, but I don’t think I’d advocate for it as a career path. Maybe I missed the point of this website’s title about being bitchy, but this story just makes me sad for her and her family. there’s something about this story that’s just…sad.

  33. DetRiotgirl says:

    This whole situation smacks of getting back at her father. I have to wonder what type of relationship they have. I mean, it’s possible he’s a great parent and she turned out six kinds of crazy anyway. But, my money is on him never being home and spending all of his time on his career and new wife. She seems like she has massive daddy issues.

  34. bill says:

    4 years ago she was witnessing hilton’s and kardashian’s success from they’re tapes. Oy, this next generation is so screwed. Maybe the sex tapes are some kind of metaphore? “Look! I’m getting screwed! watch me get screwed!”

    AND… she will be ok with HER KIDS WATCHING HER SEX TAPE? Wha?

  35. Jemma says:

    I feel sorry for her. She is still young and naive enough to believe this will be a good way of getting attention; yes she will get the attention she is craving. It will just be the wrong kind..
    I personally believe she is doing it because she will feel desired by men, envied by women [because she’s desired by men]. She doesn’t realise how people in her personal life will veiw her. She will never have a normal sex life or relationship.

    I was her once.
