The world of entertainment is no stranger to change and adaptation. Celebrities continuously seek new avenues to connect with their fans and monetize their brand. The latest notable figure to make such a move is the star from the iconic TV show, 'The Sopranos,' Drea de Matteo. At 51, she announced her debut on the subscription-based platform, OnlyFans.
Known for her prowess as an actress, de Matteo made headlines not just for her choice of platform, but also for her introduction on it. She shared the news with her followers on Instagram, accompanying it with a nude photo, making a bold statement from the get-go. Those interested in gaining access to her OnlyFans page can do so for $15/month.
But why OnlyFans, and why now?
Addressing the skeptics and naysayers, de Matteo stated to Fox News Digital, "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."
Her decision to join OnlyFans comes at a time when she has faced significant industry backlash due to her stance on COVID-19 vaccine mandates. De Matteo has been open about her refusal to comply with these mandates and has been vocal about her opposition on X (formerly known as Twitter).
It's not just the celebrities, but regular individuals too, who are venturing into platforms like OnlyFans to express themselves, build their brand, or simply make a living. For many over the age of 40, the platform represents freedom, empowerment, and financial independence.
