Montana previously told the outlet that she wasn't interested in following in her famous father’s footsteps in 2010.

“I wasn’t really into mainstream acting,” Montana explained. “People would ask me, ‘Do you want to get into acting? Do you want to be an actress?’ and I would say, straight up, ‘No.’ I knew I wanted to do adult [films].”

“I had a little passion inside me to do p---,” she said. “I didn’t really want to tell too many people about it because I was afraid of their reactions when I was younger. I started thinking about it when I was 16.”

The 32-year-old revealed she didn’t get her parents’ approval before becoming an adult film actress, saying, “I hear through relatives that [my dad is] upset, but I haven’t talked to him directly for him to tell me his feelings."
