Everyone has a dream, right? For some it’s to be a movie star, maybe a rock star for others. What about an adult entertainment star? It’s no longer as taboo as it once was, and for some, can become a lucrative business.
You would think in a $15 billion industry, the talent would be making it hand over fist, but only a few get rich shooting adult movies. I know - dreams shattered, right? Regardless, some have found a way through representation and picking the right studios. Also, for most, longevity seems to matter. You’re not going to get rich off one movie (sorry Tommy Lee).
There aren't a lot of rules in order to make this list except you need to be rich and also an actual adult movie star (sorry Kim Kardashian and Tommy Lee). A couple of just misses include Jayden James and Evan Seinfeld, who typically goes by the screen name Syder Jonez. Seinfeld is a big dude with intimidating tattoos all over his body. (Yes, he gets a lot of “blue collar” and prison guard roles.)
We’ve got men, women, hall of famers and a few household names on this list. Yes, Ron Jeremy is here. On principal alone I could never leave any adult movie star nicknamed “Hedgehog” off this list. Here are your 10 richest adult, or as they used to say in the sixties, "blue movie" entertainers:
10 Jenna Haze - $6 Million
9 Lexington Steele - $6.2 Million
8 Katie Morgan - $6.4 Million
7 Bree Olson - $7 Million
6 Traci Lords - $7.2 Million
5 Ron Jeremy - $7.5 Million
4 Maria Takagi - $8 Million
3 Jesse Jane - $8 Million
2 Jenna Jameson - $10 Million
1 Tera Patrick - $15 Million
