While Mia Khalifa, or Mia Callista, is no longer a practicing adult star, she remains to be one of the most searched-for pornstars in the world. Born in February 1993 in Beirut, Lebanon, Khalifa was surrounded by religious restrictions—she grew up Catholic, but did not practice it.
In October of 2014, at 21 years old, Khalifa joined the pornographic industry and began making a name for herself. She even did one film wearing a hijab, which sparked hate throughout the Islam community. After she became the number one pornstar on Youham, Lebanon declared the young woman a disgrace to their country.
While she became known as the “hijab porn star,” she lost interest in the adult video world and left it within three months. According to her, this was her rebellious stage. She received death threats and insults for her stint in the industry. Even though she is now retired as an adult actress, she was still reported by xHamster as the most-searched-for star of 2016.
