How did they know she was a porn star?

Here’s a candidate for strangest story of the year:

Sasha Grey: I Will NOT Quit Reading to Schoolchildren

Porn legend Sasha Grey says she will NOT back out of a national elementary school reading program — despite pressure from parents — claiming she will “not live in fear” of her XXX past.

TMZ broke the story … Grey — who once won a Best Oral Sex award for her role in “Throat: A Cautionary Tale” — participated in the “Read Across America” program at Emerson Elementary School in Compton, CA last week.

Afterward, the school received complaints for letting Grey around the kids. For the record, Grey has been out of the adult business for 2 years.

Now, Sasha has released a statement … saying, “I committed to this program with the understanding that people would have their own opinions about what I have done, who I am and what I represent.”

She adds, “I am an actor. I am an artist. I am a daughter. I am a sister. I am a partner. I have a past that some people may not agree with, but it does not define who I am.”

“I believe in the future of our children, and I will remain an active supporter and participant in education-focused initiatives.”


I’m guessing that none of the students recognized her as a porn star. So which one of the concerned parents was familiar with her work?

Or should I say “How many?”

    They were very upset with her movies. But of course they couldn’t be sure they were upset until they watched all of them, all the way through.

    LOL! So true!

    “That woman is a bad influence and I know it because I’ve watched every movie she ever made, over and over again.”

    “Concerned parents” really grate on my nerves. We have dozens of them around here. Those of us who are less self rightious, huddle out behind the building and hide from them, just like when we did when were in school.

    Actually, going legit may have made her more well known. I know who Grey is because of something she did for the cable channel G4. Then again, it was a show about an adult entertainment expo.

    This topic needs more research.

    that’s the irony actually. the adults didn’t notice. nobody noticed until she twittered about it, then the school denied it, so then they leaked pics of it to prove she was there. this isn’t about doing something nice for kids. this is about getting attention for herself. that’s the most offensive thing – that she’s just using those kids to manufacture controversy.

      There’s not much point to any celebrity reading in front of kids really.

      I’s have to see a better argument for that. Twittering about what you’re doing in real life does not an argument for controversy-generating make. Most of us do that. I know when I’m especially excited about something, I might tweet about it. If she’s out of the industry and doing something good, why jump on her? That’s two good choices we can credit her with.

    I don’t see what the big deal is .I mean she trying to help children what wrong with that .Ok so she an ex porn star big deal so what .Just leave her alone already you people in California have nothing better to do that whine and bitch over something so lame .Everyone has a dark side in there life so what .She not breaking any laws and I think she will make a great parent when she decides to have kids of her own .

    So this “Read Across America” program was started by the National Education Association. As it is the teacher’s union, I suspect they want publicity more than helping kids read. If they wanted to help kids read, maybe they’d actually make sure their membership know their students can read before they leave the classroom.
