A career in the porn industry is not the same for everyone. While some actors thrive in the porn industry all their lives, others have short-lived careers. But for some actresses, even a small presence in the industry can do wonders. The latter is true for everyone’s favorite ex-porn star, Lana Rhodes. In her short-spanned career, Lana made a significant impact in the pornography world.
Everyone is familiar with Lana’s deep blue eyes, sculpting figure, and that ever-loved tramp stamps tattoo. They don’t know about the struggles Lana had to go through to climb the ladder of success. As she revealed in an interview, Lana is a high school dropout and claims her “biggest flex” is dropping out of school to become a millionaire. Read ahead to find out more about her journey to fame and fortune.
In an interview with playboy, Lana confessed that she dropped out of school when she was nearly 13-years-old. During that time, the Chicago-born star had her heart set for becoming an actress. She dreamed of being the center of attention among spotlights and flashing cameras.
After quitting school, Lana started her own YouTube channel. She also picked up minor roles in TV shows. Inspired by Playboy bunnies, Lana was sure about joining the porn industry since her teen years. However, she had to put these dreams to a halt as Lana got arrested due to her bad choices. After she was released, Lana set off to make a career as a porn star.
After saying goodbye to formal education, Lana was determined to join the porn industry. At age 18, Lana was all set to start filming, but her mom stopped her from doing so. The whole situation brought a little pause to her dreams. By 2016, Lana broke up with her boyfriend of that time and dedicated herself entirely to pornography. In the same year, Lana starred in her first adult film. Her alluring blue eyes and innocent face, and tramp stamp tattoo caught many peoples’ attention, and Lana became famous in very little time.
In December 2016, Lana got featured in the barely Legal Magazine as one of the most promising pornstars. Lana also won the Best New Starlet for the XBIZ Awards and the “Hottest newcomer” Audience Award for the AVN Awards.
Even though Lana rocked the porn industry, she wasn’t entirely happy with the nature of the industry. She claimed it to have a very dark side to it. Lana talked about how she got pressured into working in extreme scenes. It was becoming hard for Lana to cope with, and she decided to leave the adult entertainment industry once and for all. Lana’s career shooting in X-rated films lasted for a very brief period (even less than one year). However, even this short-lived career was enough to make her one of Pornhub’s most-viewed actresses.
The exotic ex-porn star now works as a model, podcaster, influencer, and vlogger and has gained over 13.7 million followers on Instagram. In 2018, she managed to score a deal worth £61million per year with a high-profile football star.
