In her interview, de Matteo, explains that joining OnlyFans was life changing:

It saved us, OnlyFans saved my life, 100 per cent. I can't believe I'm saying that, but it really did save us.

She explained that the decision to join the platform wasn't an easy one but that she felt she had no other choice.

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.
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.
I did it, but I didn't want to do it

Thanks to OnlyFans, Drea de Matteo was able to save her house but also launch a business: ULTRAFREE which is a brand on streetwear.

Drea de Matteo isn't the only celebrities on OnlyFans

She played Adriana La Cerva, one of the characters. Her breakthrough came when she won an Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Television Drama Series.
