For days, blogs have been abuzz with actor Laurence Fishburne's daughter deciding to star in a porn flick.

But she says she hasn't been embarrassed by the coverage.

On Friday, TMZ.com reported that the actor's close friends even tried to offer Vivid Entertainment $1 million to stop shipment of 18-year-old Montana's DVDS, but Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch told TMZ "it was too late. We continue to have the utmost respect for all involved."

Over the weekend, Montana told TMZ she is glad the tapes will still hit shelves Tuesday.

"This is something I want to do," she said. "I know they're doing it out of concern for me, but I want people to see it. I want people to buy my movie, so I am happy they didn't buy it all.

"I want my whole family to be proud of me in anything I do, in any career I choose, I want them to be proud of me, whether I was being a doctor," she went on. "I know why it's 'taboo,' but I think everyone should be proud. I am proud of my body, I'm proud of what I've done, and I'm proud of the work I did."

Montana tells TMZ her mother, Hajna Moss-Fishburne, a former actress and current fitness trainer, "loves me and is concerned and worried about me. She wants me to be OK and wants whatever is best for me."

As for her father Laurence (Montana moved out of his house last year upon turning 18), she hasn't spoken to him. She says he won't call her back.
