Laurence Fishburne's Daughter: I've Always Wanted to Be a Porn Star

Laurence Fishburne's daughter is speaking out about her controversial decision to enter the entertainment industry by becoming a porn star.

"Being in an adult film is not a big deal to me," Montana Fishburne, 18, tells PEOPLE. "It's something I always wanted to do. I have always been comfortable in my body and with my sexuality."

And no, she's not hoping her adult film, which will be released by Vivid Entertainment on Aug. 10, will spawn a mainstream acting career. "I am not in porn to get into acting. I am in porn because I wanted to be in porn," she says bluntly.

The daughter of the CSI star, an Academy Award nominated actor, said she didn't seek her parents' approval before signing on for the film.
