Former adult movie star, Mia Khlaifa has in a recent interview, revealed the reasons why she had to quit acting adult films. The 25-years old was once one of the most sought after porn stars in the world.
In the interview with Lance Armstrong, Lebanese-born American social media personality opened up to him and revealed that her career in porn, came to an end when she began receiving death threats.
Apparently, the threats were from the ISIS sect, and from there on, she concluded that it was time to call it quits.
In one of the video she acted in, she was spotted wearing a hijab while performing her duties. This angered the terrorist group and they reached to her through social media, and issued some chilling death threats at her.
Mia explains to Armstrong:
“They photoshopped a picture of me being beheaded and threatened that that would happen to me,”
She further revealed that she had to be strong, not to show weakness,
“Because you can’t show weakness. That’s exactly what [ISIS is] looking for. I really try and just make it look like it rolls off, but I’ll admit, it gets to you after a while.”
Mia was featured on Lance Armstrong’s podcast that he describes as
“how we f**k up in life — either we f**k up ourselves or life f**s us up — and then we figure out a way to establish a base and move forward.”
Shocking enough, her porn career only lasted for about three months. It all started when someone approached her at Fuddruckers in Miami. She had just done her boob job and she felt it would be an avenue to make more money.
She told to Armstrong,
“I thought about it for two weeks and made the mistake of saying yes and going in. As soon as I started to gain popularity, that’s when I was like, ‘Get the fuck out of this’ … this was not what I was trying to do whatsoever,”
“I just wanted to let loose and rebel a little bit. It didn’t validate me. Nothing like that ever does. That’s not what you should be doing to try and build your self-esteem.”
