The Girlfriend Experience latest work of Oscar winner director Steven Soderbergh (Traffic) has a very unique choice of leading lady, Sasha Grey a porn star, and like any other porn star has the dream of making it to the mainstream Hollywood.
There was Traci Lords in "Cry-Baby," Nina Hartley in "Boogie Nights" and Katie Morgan in "Zach and Miri Make a Porno," but Grey is the first adult film actress to play the lead in a serious drama by an Oscar-winning director.
Does it really shows her capacity and talent as an actor in transition? some critics believe it can't be a good measure since playing a call girl for a porn star is not really a major stretch!
I guess we should all wait for the movie to come out and see if she can be the first to shoot right to the top.
