    oh god no. "celebreties" are far fewer I think. At least "A" list celebritues which truly are stars. and the word celebrity really gets overused too.

    I get what you mean, they are just actors after all. Maybe porn actor doesnt sound as good as porn star. I dont think a porn actor, still actively working in the industry could ever become a mainstream celeb.

    Has anyone ever seen someone in porn truly "acting" with skill & talent? Perhaps a few, and I felt kinda sorry for them, what future they might have had in the acting profession likely smothered by their porn background.

    I suppose they could be "stars" of porn, in that specialty alone, but it does still seem rather to insult legitimate actors. I'd rather call them porn performers, or porn celebrities, but not stars.

    Porn star kinda reminds me of the sly & subversive Andy Warhol, who would dub the nobodies who appeared in his hand-held movies as "super stars." When a term is too loosely & carelessly applied it has no meaning.
