Strange way of showing it…
from www.nypost.com – It is every father’s nightmare — especially when you’re one of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
The 19-year-old daughter of Laurence Fishburne — renowned for playing Morpheus in the “Matrix” film series and now starring in “CSI” on TV — wants to be a porn star and go by the name Chippy D.
Despite what’s been reported, Montana Fishburne said, her career choice isn’t due to finances, Paris Hilton-like ambitions or a falling-out with dad. They still have a good relationship, she insisted.
“I was inspired by the success of the people before me that have made it with their videos,” she said. “I had ambitions of being in porn, and I fulfilled my ambition. It’s no crazy Lifetime story.”

WILD CHILD: Montana Fishburne, at 15 with her “Matrix” dad (inset), Laurence, in 2006 and in her porn debut now that she’s 19.
“Montana Fishburne: An AList Daughter Makes Her XXX Debut” is due out this month. She said he was paid $25,000 for the hourlong DVD, which follows her cavorting in a car, a hotel and a shopping mall.
Friends of her mortified father apparently made a lastminute, $1 million offer to the film’s producer, Vivid, to keep the video off the market.
But Montana is undeterred.
“I can’t help that he’s my dad; I can’t help that I’m his daughter,” she said. “I’m just trying to start my own career. This is my goal. When I have my mind set on something, I’m gonna do it.
“[Our] relationship has nothing to do with why I got into porn. I got into porn because I wanted to [bleep] on camera.
“I knew it was going to affect him,” she admitted. “But I’m not doing this to slander his name. There was no ‘I want to hurt my dad.’ That’s bull. That’s selfish to do that. I’m not going to try to hurt my dad that publicly. That’s ridiculous.
“I love my dad to death. This is not about him. It’s about me.”
She added that she wanted to be a cinematic sex kitten since she was 16 but kept her dream from her parents because she knew they would disapprove.
Her parents divorced when she was 2, and she grew up splitting time between her father in LA and her mother in New York.
“I was a bicoastal kid,” she said. “It was great. It was so much fun growing up. Are you kidding me? Who wouldn’t want to travel all the time? Get to go to sunshine and snowy in the wintertime.”
She has moved out of her dad’s multimillion-dollar Hollywood Hills home.
“I wanted to do my own thing,” she said. “I didn’t feel living in my father’s house with [his and wife Gina Torres’] new baby was the best thing.” She said she spoke with her dad when she called him on his birthday last month — “but we haven’t discussed the porno.”
