An actress known for her role in the hit show “The Sopranos” announced she joined OnlyFans after her opposition to COVID-19 vaccines caused her to be blacklisted from Hollywood.
Drea De Matteo, who played Adriana La Cerva on the critically acclaimed show, joined the subscription service last month, telling her followers that they “won’t get censored” on her page and charging $15 a month for access. The website is notoriously known for its pornographically uncensored content.

“I know some people have said some nasty things about me having joined OnlyFans. But, you know, the way we see it in this house is mommy’s a warrior, not accepting defeat,” De Matteo told Fox News. “I figured, ‘OK, so everybody’s in their underwear and being sexy on Instagram and I don’t do that, but I can do that and get paid for it.’…I don’t know why I didn’t think of this sooner.”
The 51-year-old shared in the recent interview that her career had taken a serious turn after her agent dropped her after refusing to take the experimental shot, resulting in almost losing her house and livelihood. “I didn’t know this was going to be a change of life, you know, all of a sudden that during a time I’m supposed to be relaxing a little bit, that I would have to switch careers and figure new things out because my own industry thinks I’m, you know, a savage,” De Matteo said.
The mother of two added: “I guess you could say I was a bad girl because I did not follow the rules a couple of years ago. “So I don’t want to be at the mercy of mandates or strike or anything like that ever again.”
“So, when people make nasty comments about why I would have done that, my response is, ‘Damn straight, I hope you’re never in the f—ing position I’m in. I take care of an entire family and a lot of other people who depend on me.”
