Ex-porn star reading to LA students causes stir

Editor's note: See the correction below.

COMPTON, Calif. (AP) — Some parents have filed complaints with the Parent-Teacher Association after a former adult film star said she read to children in a classroom at a Los Angeles County elementary school.

Sasha Grey, a 23-year-old ex-porn actress who has appeared in mainstream shows like HBO’s “Entourage,” was a guest earlier this month at Compton’s Emerson Elementary School for Read Across America Day.

Grey tweeted Nov. 2 that she spent the day reading to students in the first and third grades.

KTLA-TV (http://bit.ly/uZ5zY8) quoted parents questioning whether it was appropriate to have Grey at the school. Parent Dudley Wheaton wondered why the school couldn’t find a fireman or a police officer to read to students.

Grey has not appeared in porn films in over two years. She has been a regular on “Entourage” and appeared in the 2009 film “The Girlfriend Experience.”

Correction, posted Nov. 16, 2011: In the above story about parents complaining about a former adult film star reading to Compton schoolchildren, The Associated Press erroneously reported that the event was part of the "Reading Across America" program. The event was part of the Compton Unified School District's Guest Reading Program.
