Montana Fishburne

Mom's Got My Back

8/8/2010 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Montana Fishburne finally found out what her mother thinks about her becoming a XXX star -- but she says it's still radio silence from her dad Laurence Fishburne.

In the conversation -- best described as uneasy, but supportive -- Montana tells TMZ her mother said, "She loves me and is concerned and worried about me. She wants me to be ok and wants whatever is best for me."

Mom is Hajna Moss-Fishburne -- a former actress and current fitness trainer.

Montana is still trying to reach Laurence. She says he won't call her back.

First off, Laurence Fishburne has been acting since he was a kid; he made his big acting debut in Apocalypse Now so whatever success he has now, he rightfully deserves it. In other words, he's worked hard for his success at 49 y.o. (I thought he was older!)
As for his daughter, read the interv at blackvoices. She claims she doesn't know how much money she'll get paid -- I find that hard to believe. But it could be that she gets a "cut" on the number of videos sold...and that's why she's all over the damn internet talking talking talking...blahblahblah...

The boyfriend is probably a little spoiled brat like she is and is probably cut off financially by his family too...so these two decide the best way to make money is to make a "porn" movie, not a "movie" but a porn movie which immediately makes money.

That's my take on it.

With everyone boasting about his career, no wonder his daughter is in crisis like so many other children. A show like CSI keeps an actor very busy, maybe too busy to be an effective dad to a teen girl. But, money and fame come first before family and no wonder she is thinking the same thing.

What DAD wants to support his daughter in a porn video. Is she nuts?

Another 19 year old fool.

My grandfather always said this "Whenever you do anything shameful, you bring shame upon your whole family because we share your name."

(but when you do anything that is with pride, you bring pride to your whole family because we share your name.)

I would never refuse a phone call from my daughter. Never! I actually want my child to live a long life.

I would never be able to show my face in front of my family if I chose a career like that! She is doing this to hurt him pure and simple.

And for god's sake, Apocalypse now was like 30 years ago when Fishburne was what, 19?? The same age as his daughter now. So he went to a whorehouse when he was away from home, in a foreign country. Hell, he was hanging with Martin Sheen, Scorsese, and probably thought they were big-time men at the time. This was before a wife and kids were EVEN a figment of his imagination yet...are people trying to say there's some comparison here or something?

Even if he wasn't the greatest father, I bet she could have gone to him and asked for a loan to go to film school or whatever. It sounds like her mother is pretty successful, too. I am sure she could have helped her with tuition or some NORMAL head shots to send to a real talent agency...many different alternatives than the avenue she chose.

IMHO it reads like a spoiled brat who is doing something she knows her parents probably don't support (not sure how many initially would support their kids going into this industry) and is pushing the envelope more by playing it out in the press - Montana, I could care less about your video - and could care less about what your family says about it - crawl back under your rock. The only reason its getting any 'press' is because of your last name. Guess she's tired of everyone else getting their 15 minutes of undeserved fame.

All I got to say is that this girl made up her mind to be a ho on camera. So, that's her decision. I don't blame her father for not talking to her, cause due to her being his daughter, his baby girl, Laurence probably taught her better than that. Taught her to be a young woman by having respect for herself and have class. Something her mother, also taught her too, before she change her mind, and accepted her daughter's porn job. Shame, shame, shame!

None of us knows what when on between her and her father. With all the Laurence Fishburne hero worship, you would think he really did save the world. Does Laurence even have a high school diploma and people are talking about how his daughter should go to college. If he cut her off, then what? Laurence for the most part has kept his private life out of the tabloids, but remember he was Cowboy Curtis on Pee Wee's Playhouse and we know what kind of things Paul Reubens has been arrested for.

If Rumer Willis can make it in showbiz, then any Hollywood celeb spawn can! And I am not trying to diss Rumer. She seems pretty well balanced and nice. Just talking in the looks department, she is pretty average. SOMEONE would have hired this Montana girl based on the Fishburne name alone. She did NOT need to do this. She wanted it for some weirda$$ reason...

Age 18 and already arrested for prostitution? People would not be praising the average Joe Butcher, if that was his daughter. Nor would they be making excuses for him refusing to even talk to his child when she is still a teen.

I feel sorry for the little thing. I mean, does she really think that people might be clamoring to see her having sex this badly?!!!

If ever I heard a cry for attention (and help), its been this sad sack of a lost young lady.

Your daddy sees you. So you can pull up your panties now, Montana. Go rinse off your face and do something more constructive with your life than trying to get daddy's attention by letting strange men stick things in your mouth and up between your legs.

" Oh please, typical american cry babies. I read the same news in conservative german news paper. The comments there where all positive, the people only complaint about the oldfashioned attitude many americans have toward porn movies. That proves one time more that even liberal americans are from the dark age because of the mental disease called christianity. I'am thankful that in Europe Porn Stars are part of the society and get even elected into Parliament.

hardly the view of europe. the comments on viply.de about this story were hugely negative. and there was recently a dutch tv show that went to the porn industry in LA (spuiten en slikken), who were flabberghasted why the 18/19 year old girls would choose that career. are the dutch prudes too?
