Miss USA Drops the Soap -- Takes Up Porn

1/19/2009 3:59 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

She's already nailed the cheesy dialogue -- and now former soap opera villain Kelli McCarty has decided ... she just wants to be nailed.

Launch photos

The former Miss USA 1991 -- yeah, she was a frickin' beauty queen -- has quit the mainstream acting biz for a shot at a career in "adult entertainment."

McCarty, who played maniacal Beth Wallace on "Passions" for seven years, is now a "Vivid Entertainment" girl -- and has just wrapped on her first XXX feature, "Faithless," in which she plays the lead character to a very very supporting cast.

So, why the career move? Here's the explanation -- "I enjoy acting,and I really like sex ... so this was the perfect opportunity to combine two of my passions."

Sorry but with that ridge up her forehead, she looks a lot like a klingon. As for her being a hooker on film? Are you really surprised? YUK

this is the her first time in porn, she used to do soft porn movies. she is a grown woman and able to make her own decisions in life. If she wants to do porn, then porn it is and since its a billion dollar industry supported by mosts of you posting on here then she made the right decision for herself. her plastic surgery was a little alarming on tv so atleast her face will be busy doing other things and i wont have to look at her

I really don't see anything wrong with it seein how sex is a natural part of life and its big money in adult entertainment whether you wanna fess up to it or not. this is a chicago paper so im pretty sure you have adult entertainment channels cuase I do even if its hbo. look how popular playboy is. she had a very long career on a soap opera but that seems to not even matter. Sex sells get you money girl.

I was in the business for 10 years, then I danced in clubs until I retired. I now own 9 condominiums, 4 houses, a Harley, and a Jaguar. I also own a very successful restaurant in NY. I live in Palos Verdes CA and my home is completely paid for. My taxes are paid, I am disease free and dont have to work another day in my life. Oh sure call me a used up skank, ho, pathetic, sad, waste of life, etc, etc, etc, ad nauseum. The names you call her, or me, or any one of us who have chosen this line of income are only words. Common words from the common mind. We will never know you and you will never know us. For that I am sure we are all thankful. Now get back to making your own lives work before you trash talk other people who are minding their business.

Yeah yeah, all you guys sniffling about how "proud" her parents must be. She's damned near 40 years old. I'd say she's old enough to do whatever she damned well pleases and if her family doesn't like it, there's no reason why she should care.The real question should be, does the porn industry really need a 40 year old "star?" But then, why not? I'd hit it!

God!!!!! This is considered a good career move now? What the heck is this world coming to? I do remember her from the soap passions. She was good in that show. She must be broke and can't find any decent work. I like sex too, but I wouldn't consider a career in Xrated films and I look way better than her. And I am out of work now, but I am going back to school. What a bad thing to do. She is just one of those kind of women who have no respect for herself. Some women justify this career by saying sex is normal. I agree that sex is normal, but not that kind.

You sad judgmental people that disapprove of her doing adult movies, WHO CARES what you think. You want to hate on someone that gets paid to do the same thing, you have to do to your ugly, fat, pathetic spouse for free... I think I would call that jealousy.

Do us all a favor, worry more about yourself instead of judging people for doing something they enjoy and they get paid for. If you don't like it, don't watch it. And for the idiot that said this country is F***ed anyway, there are plenty of other countries to live in..feel free to leave anytime, we don't want ignorant close minded type here anyway...

You people are hilarious.
She never said anywhere that she considered this "a step up".
It's just another form of entertainment. Another scene.
Also, she is happily married and has a husband who I'm sure supports her decision to do it, completely.
I agree that she has a little too much work done to her face but that's beyond the point.
I'll be laughing along with Kelli McCarty 5 years from now when more popular, mainstream actresses start doing the same thing.
And as soon as they do, the rest of you fools will start to realize your old-fashioned moral beliefs have quietly evaporated without you even noticing.
This isn't 1990 anymore it's 2009.
Ride the wave, don't pretend it's not there.

I don't see what the big deal is, I'm sure that everyone that has posted a comment watches porn...well, without sexually confident men and women joining the industry there would be no porn. Also, this isn't the 70's, female porn starts make thousands of dollars per movie. I mean, just look at Jenna Jameson, she makes millions a year. Everyone has sex, and there isn't anyone that hasn't had sex with someone that they didn't love, so why not make money for it?

There is no acting in porn; just meaningless sex. I hope that she realizes that the respect she earned as an actress(if she ever had any) will be gone. The support and ties she once had with the mainstream industry will soon dissolve. I hope she gets tested for HIV, A.I.D.S. and STD's on a regular. GOOD LUCK; YOU ARE DEFINITELY GOING TO NEED IT!
