Denise Richards has said she can't judge her daughter for joining OnlyFans because she was doing similar things at that age.

The actress' daughter Sami Sheen has joined the social media platform which is a subscription-based social platform popular for its adult content.

But the 51-year-old has praised her daughter's confidence and said that she wishes she had the same at that age.

Denise posted to her Instagram page to address the situation where she said she can't judge Sami.

In a post she wrote: "Lots of negative comments on my social this past week. I have to say, I wish I had the confidence my 18 yr old daughter has.

And I also can't be judgmental of her choices. I did Wild Things & Playboy quite frankly her father shouldn't be either.

"And to be able to ignore the negativity at her age? It took me many years & I still sometimes struggle.

I'm in awe of her ability to be able to shut out the noise. Because it can destroy you."

The star then went on to talk about the monetised part of OnlyFans as well as saying other people post bikini pictures on other apps so why shouldn't they get paid for it.

She added: "I recently learned about @onlyfans in the last few months. The judgement because women & men of the adult film industry are on there.
