Heather Graham’s parents think she is a porn star

heather-graham.pngGeez, has she ever taken a worse picture? Good Lord.

Heather says that her strictly religious parents severed contact with her after she played a roller skating porn star in Boogie Nights. The 37-year-old actress says that her role in the 1997 movie was so explicit that her parents were “horrified.” Not willing to listen to her point of view, they decided that because she played that role, she must be like that in real life.

“It would be nice if I did have a good relationship with my family, and yes, part of me longs to have a mum and dad who love and accept me for who I am. But if they never do, it’s OK,” she says.

She also says that because of her sexy movie roles, men expect her to be like that in real life. “Men I meet tend to think of me as this super-sexy, wild woman, when in fact it has taken me a long time to be able to express that side of myself,” she says. She blames her strict Catholic upbringing for that as well, saying at one point her parents wanted her to become a nun.

I couldn’t imagine doing that to my child – could you?
