Woods told Complex that she’s aware of the criticisms that sex workers on the site have leveraged against the celebrities who have joined over the last few months. “I ... know that it can be concerning because whenever celebrities or public figures join a platform, the people that are already on it are scared that it’s going to be tainted or that it’s going to change their livelihood,” she said. “For the people that are on there that are making a living on it and killing it on there, I’m not coming on there to take away from anything that they’ve already built.”

Woods said she was primarily drawn to the platform because she felt she could be a “little different” on it than she is on her other social media platforms. She also made it a point to emphasize that she’s not just posting “random selfies”—she’s collaborating with celebrity photographer Steven Gomillion to shoot “edgy, iconic photos.”

Woods may be genuinely supportive of sex workers on OnlyFans, but it’s hard to see how she wouldn’t be changing the environment of the site by flooding it with professional photographs and joining the growing ranks of celebrities charging users for exclusive content. Most people on the platform, I’d venture, don’t get to promote their page with press interviews either!
