She's also been offered a part in a porn film

Amanda Knox has posted a photo declaring her innocence over the murder of Meredith Kercher. Two weeks ago, the American was sentenced by a Florence court to serve a 28-year sentence for the 2007 murder of the London student. However, Knox was sentenced in her absence, and has no plans to return to Italy from her home town of Seattle. She declared her innocencein a black and white photo posted to her website. The sign reads ‘Siamo Innocenti’ which means ‘We are innocent’ in Italian. Which means that she is also defending ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, who was sentenced to 25 years for the murder.

At present, Knox and Sollecito are appealing the verdict handed to them by a Florence court, and Rudy Guede is the only person in jail serving time for Meredith’s murder.

Regardless of her innocence or guilt, a porn company has offered Knox a paltry $20,000 to star in a porn film. It's not that we’re sniffing at the equivalent of £12,000. (We could certainly do with that sort of money just laying around.) But we’d prefer not to have to lay around, naked, having sex with strangers on film to get that sort of money. And if the offer is just another one of those publicity stunts that porn companies like to do for headlines, why don’t they just offer her an impossible amount, like £20 million?

Still, the pitch from Monarch Distributions’ CEO Mike Kulich was pretty funny so it might have convinved her: ‘As you may have read, and were most likely well aware of, the general consensus is you are absolutely smoking hot. Since you came back into the headlines, our loyal fan base has been e-mailing us non-stop asking about you.’ He also promised that she could have control ‘over all terms of productions [sic]’ including what she would like to do in the films and who she gets to star with.

Yeah, something tells us she’d rather extradite herself to Italy than get involved with that.
