Drea de Matteo, at 52, has candidly shared how her decision to join OnlyFans “rescued” her amid financial struggles. Known for her role in “The Sopranos,” Matteo disclosed in an interview with the DailyMail, published on Tuesday, that she was on the brink of losing her home, with a mere $10 left in her bank account, before she began posting content on the platform.

“OnlyFans saved my life, 100 percent,” she emphasized. “I can’t believe I’m saying that, but it really did save us.” Previously, Matteo had expressed her challenges in finding work in Hollywood due to her refusal to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

“They put me into foreclosure, and my house had flooded, so I was trying to sell the house quickly. I wanted to try and sell it before they took it,” she recounted. “At the same time, I lost my mom, and my other mom, who has dementia, had run out of money for her caregiver. I didn’t know which way was up.”

The actress said that within five minutes of posting on OnlyFans, she made enough money to pay off her home and launch a streetwear brand as a secondary source of income.

“Anybody that wants to condemn me and put me down, go for it. I just hope you never find yourself in the position I was in to take care of two little kids,” she said.

Matteo, who shares two children with her ex Shooter Jennings, emphasized her approach to creating compelling content. “For the most part I look good, and the best part about it is I get to be heavier. I don’t look good in the pictures if I’m skinny. Before the photo shoot, I get to eat and eat. I get to bulk up to look better,” she disclosed. “We’re just carb loading. I’m just being an Italian lady in the world, eating spaghetti and pasta and steak.”

Reflecting on her career shift due to her stance against COVID-19 vaccine mandates, Matteo told Fox News in a September interview that she was compelled to “switch careers and figure new things out because my own industry thinks I’m a savage.”

She candidly shared her transition from financial stability to uncertainty, stating, “I used to have a lot of money. And then, all of a sudden, I went from being allowed to work to never being allowed to work again. I was never the kind of actor that took jobs just to stay in the business. I literally took jobs to feed my family.”

Matteo appeared on “The Sopranos” as a series regular for the first five seasons. In 2004, she won an Emmy for supporting actress in a drama series for her portrayal of La Cerva. She was also a regular on “Sons of Anarchy” and “Shades of Blue.”
