ESSENTIAL BELLADONNA INTERVIEW
The current queen of
porn on sex with Jenna Jameson and why Justin
Timberlake's so sexy
Belladonna has enjoyed a whirlwind four
years in the adult industry since she joined on a
whim four years ago.
She's been the focus of a two-year ABC "Prime Time"
investigation into the porn industry and she's
morphed from hot starlet to hot producer, joining
one of the industry's best and biggest players, John Stagliano's Evil Angel Productions, as a featured
Bella was recently voted by Mr. Web Review
readers as the sexiest adult starlet going and in
honor of her selection, our webmaster and resident
question-ask man, Evan, sat down with Bella for 90
minutes on the eve of the '04 Adult Entertainment
Expo to ask her about life as a celebrity, retiring
to become a full-time masseuse and her upcoming
Vivid feature film with Jenna Jameson.
Q. You cut all your hair off
recently. What was people's
reaction to Bella with the Annie Lennox look?
"I wanted to change my hair color and I wasn't
necesarily going for any kind of look. I've (cut it
off) before, so it wasn't scary. I was a little
worried about what poeple would think, but at the
same time, I didn't care because this is me. This is
"Even if I wasn't in porn, I would've done it, and
it's grown out now, short and blonde. A lot of
people really like it and there were some people
were like, 'I really don't know about that.'"
Q. I see the first scene you ever did was in
Real Sex Magazine with Chris Cannon. What happened? How
nervous were you?
"I had fun. I was a little
nervous because I had never been in front of a
camera naked before. I loved the attention and
having a makeup artist and trying to do new things.
That was the first time I'd ever done anal in my
life. It was one of those things.
"They said, 'You wanna do anal?' And I was like, 'If
I say no, will they still hire me?' I had no idea
what I was getting into. I didn't do anything to
prepare for it, but it didn't hurt as much as I
thought. I was working with a real pro. You can have
guy go in there and hurt you or you can have a guy
go in there and take his time. Lucky for me I had
Q. We read
interviews from these starlets who claim they cum
every time in a video. How realistic is that with
all the stops and starts in a shoot?
"Depends on the girl, really. If a
person wants to cum, then they can cum. I like to. I
mean, even if I'm not fucking, I"m still
masturbating. It hasn't always been like that, but
it's how I am these days. But sometimes I am too
worried about what everyone's going to look like or
there's too much going on. And sometimes people
don't know when I have one. I can come really
quietly. But I can be very vocal if I need to."
Q. Growing up, what was your
introduction to porn? Drive-in movie? Dad's stash?
"My first boyfriend was 15 and got
me to watch it. I didn't know anything about it,
what it really was. My reaction? Oh my god. I
thought it was sick and gross and I didn't know why
people had to watch that.
"I was raised Mormon, you have to
understand. My dad was a Bishop and I was taught
that masturbation is not good and that sex is only
for making children. Then I got older and started
doing it and realized I'm not a bad person. I like
sex on camera. That's not bad. A lot of times you
think, 'People will think I'm disgusting.' But
really, who cares what people think? They're not
coming to my grave to be buried with me."
Q. Who are the five sexiest starlets out
there right now in the industry and why?
"In porn? I would say
Katja Kassin. She's fucking drop dead gorgeous
with a curvaceous body and a sweet face. She's a
great performer, submissive and dominant at the same
time. She's an amazing performer. She's got the
whole package, I think.
Jenna Jameson for sure. I'm not saying that
because she's No. 1. She really is fucking No. 1.
She's fucking gorgeous, but also a really cool
person who has this incredible feeling about her
when she's having sex with you. She makes you feel
incredible. The sounds she makes, the way she looks
at you. She's all there.
works for Andrew Blake productions. She's so fucking
sexy and once again, a great performer. I'm naming
people who bring a feeling to the scene and enjoy
every fucking second of it, from makeup to the cum
is beautiful, gorgeous with a voluptuous
body. Oh my god, I love her butt. She is so
perverted and horny and knows exactly how to suck on
a woman or a man. I know because I lived with her
for a very long time.
"There's so many great girls in this
biz. This is a hard decision. But fifth I would name
Sophie Evans. She can take it like a fucking
champ and she's so fucking sexy and she's got that
accent. She's Hungarian and most of the time you
don't see girls go all out. She really gets involved
and 100 percent loves it."
I've seen you on Night Calls 411 quite
a bit and on Lexington Steele's show, Lex In The
City, on Playboy TV. I know most
of the action is simulated on there, but you girls
are rubbing on yourselves for 90 minutes. Doesn't
something get wet for real? Give us the stories,
"It depends on whom you get to
simulate with. Some of the girls are stand offish
and some are doing it because the cameras are on,
and some of the other girls I really like. There's a
black girl that's always on there as a dancer, I
can't remember her name, but she's got an amazing
body and she talks dirty to you and smacks your ass
and it's great.
"If you get a good partner, you can get into it.
There might be like a lick or finger here or there,
but there's 30 people watching you. it's kind of
hard to let go and be free and do your own thing.
They've told us to not be so graphic. We get carried
Q. You're a big-time porn director now
and your stuff is especially hot. Other former stars
are now making great directors. Why is that
transition so easy?
"It wasn't so easy for me. It was an
opportunity my ex boyfriend, Nacho Vidal, made for
me. I would tell him all these perverted stories and
he said, 'Why don't you direct?' I was scared to
death. I didn't' want to be responsible for a whole
movie. I can perform very well. But to be
responsible for the whole thing? II was very scared.
I didn't think I could do it. But Nacho pushed me.
He got me motivated and I tried it with Sineplex
and had fun. I got to play around with my ideas. I
did try and it was successful.
When I left (Sineplex), Nacho told
John Stagliano to watch Bella's movies and three or
four days later, I had a job at Evil Angel and it's
probably the most incredible thing I've had happen
to me because Evil Angel is like a big fucking deal
and everyone knows that.
"For me to have a chance to be a director for John
Stagliano is a blessing from God. You own yourself.
You own everything you do and you make your futureS
is a blessinig fro God. You own yourself. You own
everything you do and you make the future.
"My first movie
Evil Pink was diff thian anything i'v shot. slow
and paassiontate but also perverted at same itme. I
dont' think a lot of peopel exepcete that from me.
Next ones aren't going to be so slow.
Q. How do you figure out what's going into a
movie? Do you just shoot a gazillion scenes and put
them together at random or do you have "Bella
Perversions 67" in mind and shoot 7 scenes for that?
"It's really not that planned. The
first movie I did, I had this idea and this idea and
this idea. I got to the set and decided there. I
don't' shoot tons of scenes and let them sit there.
I shoot five scenes for a specific movie. The second
movie I've worked on for Evil Angel has taken longer
because I've been busy with feature dancing and
store signing and have been on the road for the past
four months. After January's done I'm only shooting
for myself. I'm only shooting my Evil Angel movies
and I'm not going to do any more features or store
signings for awhile."
Q. Where do you see porn
going in terms of delivery in the future. Do you
still think it'll be mail order dominated or will it
all be internet download? And what about virtual
porn? Think we'll have that soon?
"I think a lot of it will be
internet download. That seems to be what people
like. More private. Very easy. The quality will
improve every year. Then again, I can't assume
anything. i don't' know. I personally like DVDs. A
lot of people don't' also like computers. I would
definitely think internet over most anything else,
though, but I want to see a 3D Bella. Hell yeah. I
would definitely like to see that."
Q. Is porn going to be all
gonzo all the time soon? Do you think there's an
audience anymore for storyline driven porn and is it
"I think there's an audience out
there if it's good enough.
The Fashionistas proved storyline features can
be a great way to do movies. There should be more
great fucking movies with fucking great sex.
"Gonzo though is right to the point. It's in your
face. it's changing and getting more aggressive and
perverted. It's people having imagination and
wanting to see something their girlfriends won't do
or people think is disgusting but yet they'll jack
off to it."
Q. Most folks reading this
will watch some Bella or Jenna and get themselves
off or get their partners started. In your private
life, do you turn on some XXX to get the party
"(Laughs). No to tell you truth. I
don't' watch that much porno. I really haven't found
the person I enjoy watching it with. I don't' need
it myself because I have this crazy imagination. I
would like to start watching more.
Q. Do you think the industry is getting too
extreme right now. Ass-to-mouth is common place and
we're seeing all these bukkake movies and pissing
movies. Are we going too far?
"I don't think it's going too far if
there's an audience out there for it and people
enjoy doing it . If people enjoy doing it, people
will like to see it. Believe it or not, there's
things I don't' care for. I tried gang bangs once
and I didn't care for it. It doesn't turn me on.
"Five guys, great, but not 12. Bukkake? I wouldn't
mind doing that. I don't' know how much cum I would
like. A2M doesn't bother me if its my own ass. You
don't' go sucking on anyone's asshole. Because of
STDs and stuff, I shy away sometimes. Some girls
just aren't so clean. I know what comes out of my
asshole because I clean it all the time."
Q. How do you prep for an
anal scene now?
"I actually don't' go and buy an
enema bottle. i use an enema bag and clean myself
out real good the night before and make sure there's
nothing in there. Even before I got out for a scene,
I stick a toy down there deep to make sure it's
Q. Speaking of ass-to-mouth
you're the queen of anal. Most guys want to try it
but their women are scared to death. Is there a good
way to try anal?
"You have to be very horny if you're
ever going to do it. You have to be warm, you know,
in a good comfy position. I like to be in the spoon
position, touching your clit and making sure you're
really relaxed and making sure the guy who does it
understand it's your asshole and it's going to hurt
"Talk dirty while you're doing it. I personally
prefer spit but if there's lube, I use
Eros. (Some types of) lube can burn your
asshole. I would tell them use a butt plug before or
a glass toy on yourself and get it loosened up and
get into it."
Q. Does it hurt?
"There's times when it can get
challenging. That's the whole fascination about
anal. If it wasn't like that it wouldn't' be so
good. It's ooh yeah, that's a little tight but
go ahead and do it. It's kind of sex I like."
Q. I see you are doing some feature dancing
now. Give us your best road stories. Lap dancing
"I don't' do lap dances anymore
because I've had bad experiences with people who
assume isince Im a porn star and do laps that
they'll get more than they bargained for. i do give
a great lap. As for road stories, well, I get a lot
of the girls wanting to fuck me everywhere I go.
it's really a compliment to me. They're groping me
and shit like that. That's best road story of all. I
haven't chosen to have sex with anyone. I kind of
watch out for myself nowadays."
Q. Wondering can you go to the mall without
being noticed? And what do people do when they do
"I can go without getting noticed
but I have been noticed in places. People are really
cool. They go, 'Are you Belladonna?' If people
recognize me and start talking to me, I'm nice
because it's a compliment. I don't' go places and
people scream and get cameras out but it's nice to
be noticed and appreciated for your work."
Q. Name 2 male and 2 female
mainstream celebrities you'd like to shag?
"Hell yeah. This is a good one.
Charlise Theron and
Christina Ricci. Charlise turns me on because
she's very classy and mysterious. You don't' know a
lot about her. She turns me on. She really does.
Christina is one of those cute voluptuous little
girls. She's got this body to die for and a face you
want to suck on.
"Men? Edward Norton drives me nuts
because he's an incredible actor. I also love Brad
Pitt. He just drives me crazy."
I want to talk about what happened with you and
Sineplex and how you landed at Evil Angel. I
understood you to have a 5-year deal with Sineplex.
"It was kind of a bullshit story.
Things went wrong and promises weren't' kept. I had
to get out. I didn't have a feeling of trust."
Q. i see they still have
belladonnaxxx.com still up and making money off your
name even though you're gone.
"I'm not involved with that anymore.
it just goes to show you."
new Evil Angel site is looking good? What is up with that
"Enter Belladonna is the site I'm
doing with Evil Angel. Three guys with Evil Angel
came up with the name and really have been trying to
mend wounds from the last website. It's a good
website but you couldn't download pictures. I wasn't
there. It was kind of just done.
"Enter Belladonna is me. I have a diary on it. I
show pictures from the road. I just really wanted to
get involved with my fans."
Q. I've heard you say many times that ABC
"PrimeTime" didn't show all of the story. What did
they leave out?
I know you feel a bit misunderstood in terms of
your feelings for this industry.
said I was anti-porn. When
someone follows you around for two years and they're
a mainstream company, well, they told me it wasn't
going to be like that. No one said they'd show an
hour long of me.
It was bullshit, made up lies, like
me waiting for a contract. They took things out of
context totally. Some things I said were true. At
times, I felt pressured into doing things, but I
made a choice to go on and do it. But I still think
a lot of people don't' realize when you're 18 and
there's tons of people in the business and you don't
know who they are, they pressure you.
"I'm not going to lie and say everyone's great and
they never treat you bad, but i think it's bullshit
when people don't' want to hear the truth. I was
honest about having STDs. That shit goes around and
lot of people don't give a fuck. After that aired,
that's when we started being required to have an STD
test. So some good came out of it.
"But I will never do something like that again.
(ABC) emailed me and wanted to do a follow up. I
said, 'No thank you. I don't want to be embarrassed
Q. Being from Biloxi, MIss, you are the
prototypical small town girl. What got you out of
"I only lived there for a couple
years. My father was in the AIr Force and we moved
every two or three years. I lived in Mississippi,
Idaho, Germany, California, Utah and Spain."
Q. You are known for your
booty. What's the story there?
"I think it's just genetics,
honestly. I'm thanking my parents every day for this
ass. I eat good. I eat very healthy but I can eat a
lot of food. I'm not a afraid to get bigger because
then I get really curvaceous and I like that."
Q. Besides you, which female
stars have the best bottoms going?
Gina Lynn, mmmm.
Jewel DeNyle has a great ass.
has an incredible ass.
Kylie Wild has a great ass."
Q. Seems the industry is
moving away from the big chest to the big butt. You
like the trend?
"I think it's great the industry is going to the
ass. If a girl has tiny tits and a big fat ass, hell
yeah, let's go with that. I love all tits, too. But
I think there's a look to a natural tit and a feel
to a natural tit that's indescribable versus a fake
Q. If you've got to be with one man the rest
of your life, do you want 11 inches hung low or just
a standard 6 or 7?
"I prefer maybe like an 8. I would
prefer 6 or 7 over a big one. It could be a little
thick. I've been with Nacho for three years and I
know what's it like to be with a fucking huge dick
all the time and sometimes you can't walk if you
fuck four times a day."
Q. When, growing up, did the guys begin
noticing 'the body?'
"They used to call me bubble butt
and when I was 11 or 12 is when it started. I didn't
get tits until I was 15 though."
Q. How do your religious
parents handle your profession?
"It's not something we even talk
about that much, so it's not an issue. They've never
said one mean thing to me about it and never thrown
it in my face and never made me feel bad about it. I
know this isn't the job they want their child to
Q. Do you think about a life
"I plan for my future every day, at least for the
past six months. I've set up mutual funds I can't
touch until I'm 60. I plan to retire when I'm 25.
I'm 22 now and I plan to go to massage therapy
college and when I'm 26 I'll open my own massage
"That's what i want to do for the
rest of my life. This will be a wonderful nest egg,
are you kidding me? Being a director for Evil Angel
gives me a chance to make money. I get a percentage
of U.S. and Europen sales.
"SInce I'm a producer, I pay for everything out of
my own pocket, though.
Evil Pink costs me $20 grand to shoot and I paid
a lot more after that to do editing and
distribution, design of the box cover, everything. I
really work hard but I know that I will definitely
work harder on the next one. I've been pleased with
the results financially, amazing pleased. I will
make money off that movie for the rest of my life,
as long as it keeps selling.
Q. Let's change gears. Is Justin Timberlake sexy?
"Yes. I like the way he moves and
how his clothing looks on his body and his
personality and how he's changed. As long as you
keep changing and stay fresh, people will watch
Q. What about
"I love her body. I think she's
beautiful. But I would prefer
because she has a woman's
voice and can sing anywhere and anything and sounds
great and she's a fucking woman. She speaks her
mind. But I'm not putting Britney down. She's doing
her thing, too."
Q. Your take on Michael
Jackson. Did he sleep with those little boys or is
it all about money. And should a 45-year-old be
sleeping with kids anyway?
"I think if he is sleeping with kids
and isn't a pevert and a pedophile, I don't think
there's anything wrong with it. If I have kids at
45, I'll let them sleep in my bed too. I don't' have
the right to assume. I know what the mainstream
bullshit media can do to people. I know i don't
believe half the shit on TV and in the papers."
Q. I read in an interview
where you named your three favorite people to work
with and two were black, Lexington Steele and Justin
Slayer. First wondering what it is about those guys
that gets your motor running and can you talk about
the alleged interracial backlash running through the
"You want to know what I really
think? Anyone who says (interracial scenes can hurt
a career) should be slapped in the face.
"If people don't want to watch it, don't watch it.
But that's what I hate about this industry. That
pisses me off. I hate racist people. I hate when
people say, 'It's going to hurt your career if you
do a black guy.' Kiss my fucking ass. Look at me. I
love black men. It hasn't hurt me.
"But about the guys? Oh god, Justin Slayer is
fucking incredible. HIs body, his smoothness, his
talking when he fucks me. He wants to dig inside
you. He so does it for me. Lex is so responsive.
He's so into you and so loving it and so (makes sex
voice) 'Ooh, it feels good.' It's a challenge to
work with him because he's so big and so long. In
your vagina, he just goes deep. It's crazy deep up
Q. I want to know about the
movie for Vivid Video. Tell us about the scene
and how did it go down. The old queen of porn vs. the
"It's called Bella loves Jenna. I
shot the movie for her and wasn't planning on it
being "Bella Loves Jenna." I did a scene with Jenna
and one with Nacho Vidal that was so incredible,
that they decided to call it 'Bella Loves Jenna.'
"She fisted me but I don't' think they can show it.
It was a hot girl-girl scene. Great location and
wardrobe. Jenna and I alone was wonderful. I got
off. Oh yeah."
Q. Is Bella dating anyone
"Actually no. I am having sex with
one person. But I have a couple people I talk on the
phohe that don't live in the country. It's not hard
for me to maintain a relationship if you have right
person. I haven't' had right person come into my
Q. Curious how you came up
with your feature name.
"My friend in Utah, a girl I knew
whose name was Bella and I thought it was so
beautiful and was name I chose. My agent at time
said Bella is beautiful and you say Bella donna and
it means beautiful woman, so I chose that."
Q. So is this 'Beautiful
Woman' going to settle down one day?
"That's was something that used to be on my mind but
where I'm at in my life now, I would imagine myself
being with a child but not with a husband, having a
very open life. I could even adopt but definitely
not until my late 20s or earlys 30s. We'll see."
