Former adult film actress, Mia Khalifa, revealed in a recent interview that she only made a total of $12,000 (Rs 8.5 lakhs) from her time in the industry.

According to a report in Vice, Khalifa had only worked in the industry for three months, but still remains one of the most popular names, and was the most searched adult actors in 2018.

Khalifa had become the subject of controversy in 2014 when one of the films she appeared in featured her wearing the hijab, earned her death threats from the ISIS.

In a recent interview with Megan Abbott she clarifies a lot of the misconceptions of the adult film industry.

"A lot of things online are wrong. Most of them still claim that I do porn. I haven't done porn in five years," she tells Abbott. Along with this, she also dispels how much she made in her brief career in the industry.

In a video she posted on Twitter, she clarifies this, also sharing how it wasn't "sunshine and flowers" after she quit the industry and tried to enter the workforce.

"People think I’m racking in millions from porn. Completely untrue. I made a TOTAL of around $12,000 in the industry and never saw a penny again after that. Difficulty finding a normal job after quitting porn was... scary."

She clarified that she didn't "expect to make millions," but it was a common misconception people had.

She also clarified another user's comments.

According to NY Post, Khalifa went on to become a sports presenter after leaving the porn industry, and she hopes to continue working in that field.

"Everybody deserves a second chance. Everybody has a past they're not proud of," she also shares as part of a conversation she had with someone.
