A plot line like this you would tend to think it was right out of a soap opera, only it’s real. Former Miss USA Kelli McCarty, who starred as villainous Beth Wallace in the NBC daytime drama Passions, has stunned the entertainment world by launching an adult film career with Vivid Entertainment, the leading adult film studio. “Faithless,” her first X-rated DVD release, will be on sale starting February 4, 2009.
“I enjoy acting, and I really like sex,” says McCarty, “so this was the perfect opportunity to combine two of my passions. I approached Vivid with the idea of shooting a film with a sexy but interesting storyline, and I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of control I was given throughout the production process. I am very pleased with the final edit of ‘Faithless,’ and I just may do another adult film.“
The venture with Vivid Entertainment, the award-winning studio that is home to Vivid Girls including Jenna Jameson, Tera Patrick and Savanna Samson, “marks the first time that a Miss USA, let alone an established TV actress, has made the reverse crossover into adult,” according to Vivid co-chairman Steven Hirsch. “As it turns out, by any standard, Kelli’s performance in ‘Faithless’ is incredibly erotic. She smolders sex from every pore of her body. We’ve made some footage from the movie available at www.kelliusa.com for the curious to judge for themselves,” Hirsch adds.
Hirsch said the studio assigned acclaimed director Paul Thomas (PT) to guide McCarty through the production of the big budget feature shot in hi definition. The plot follows “Callie” (McCarty) at a tipping point in her marriage, during which she feels her husband has wandering eyes and she has lost control of the relationship. She seduces her stepdaughter’s boyfriend and the sexual fireworks follow.
McCarty won the title of Miss Kansas in 1990 and was crowned Miss USA in 1991. She placed fourth in the Miss Universe competition that same year. Upon completion of her reign as Miss USA, McCarty appeared on several popular television programs, including Melrose Place, Beverly Hills, 90210, Silk Stalkings, Dream On, Pacific Blue and Diagnosis Murder. She landed the role of Beth Wallace on the NBC daytime drama Passions in 1999 and played the character through 2006.
“I enjoyed the filming process very much and found PT’s production team to be extremely professional and highly skilled,” says McCarty.
“We’ve been credited with spearheading the transition of adult entertainment into the mainstream, but I was still surprised when Kelli approached us,” said Hirsch. “As it turns out, she’s a natural porn star.“
Adult actors Daisy Marie, Jennifer Dark, Kelly Leigh, Voodoo, James Deen, Steve St. Croix and Herschel Savage are also featured in the movie.
Holy shit I just found a picture of her from back in 1991 when she was Miss USA. This is the same person? I can’t believe it. I mean I get that like 20 years have passed but even then someone can really change that much?
