AceShowbiz - Billie Eilish's recent remarks about porn caught attention from a former adult film performer and director. Retired porn star and director Randy Spears reacted to the "Happier Than Ever" hitmaker's criticism against porn in her interview with Howard Stern.
“Listen, I happen to agree with her," the AVN Awards winner, who was occasionally credited as Greg Orly in his porn work, said in an interview with TMZ. "When we're that young, our brains don't have the capacity to digest that. Who in their right mind would want their 7-year-old daughter or son watching some woman with seven guys? It's pretty despicable stuff."
Randy, who has appeared in more than 1,400 hardcore films from 1987 to 2011, went on to say, "And if your brain is still growing and you have very little life experience as an adult in the world and you're trying to digest that and make sense of that, I could see exactly how she could feel that way. There's no doubt about it."
He also urged Billie to use her platform to further delve into what he says is a larger issue surrounding the consumption of porn. "She's the kind of person that has a lot of guts, actually, to come out and speak her mind on an issue like this," he said of the Grammy-winning musician. "I applaud her for it."
"Maybe it will do some good somewhere down the line. Maybe she'll turn [it] into being able to help people who are addicted to pornography, because it's a real thing, believe me, and it is quite damaging when it is," Randy continued.
In her candid interview on Saturday, December 18, Billie slammed porn videos. "As a woman, I think porn is a disgrace," the "Bad Guy" singer said. "I started watching porn when I was, like, 11," Billie told Howard. "I didn't understand why it was a bad thing. I thought that's how you learned how to have sex."
"I used to watch a lot of porn, to be honest. I think it really destroyed my brain and I feel incredibly devastated that I was exposed to so much porn," she continued.
