  • Quotes

    • Jenna: Yes, I can confirm I'm pregnant. It's still early, so I'm being cautious. I'm resting as much as possible. I'm so happy!

    • Jenna: Absolutely. The Clinton administration was the best years for the adult industry and I wish that Clinton would run again. I would love to have him back in office. I would love to have Al Gore in office. When Republicans are in office, the problem is, a lot of times they try to put their crosshairs on the adult industry, to make a point. It's sad, when there are so many different things that are going on in the world: war, and people are dying of genocide...I look forward to another Democrat being in office. It just makes the climate so much better for us, and I know that once all our troops come home, things are going to be better and I think that getting Bush out of office is the most important thing right now.

    • Jenna: (on endorsing Hilary) I love Hillary. I think that in some ways she's pretty conservative for a Democrat, but I would love to have a woman in office. I think that it would be a step in the right direction for our country, and there would be less focus on war and more focus on bettering society.

    • Jenna: Posing nude has to be one of my favorite things in the world.

    • Jenna: I was lucky to not have caught any sexual diseases, even though I worked without condoms for two years.

    • Jenna: My heart is a gypsy - continuously searching for a home, fighting within itself, wondering whether it is weak or even right for that matter to be searching in the first place. Loneliness is what it feels like.

    • Jenna: I try my hardest to push the point that I am a feminist. I really think it's important that people know that the women in this industry are empowered. They run it, man. It's awesome.

    • Jenna: Is it just me or is a porn awards show just not the right place to be discussing your thoughts on the war?

    • Jenna: Making eye contact during rough sex is roughly the equivalent of trying to read Dostoevski on a roller coaster.

    • Jenna: I'm good at a lot of things. Sex being one of them--so I think I've certainly succeeded at that.

    • Jenna: Lots of women tell me I'm their idol.

    • Jenna: I know that when I get pregnant I won't step one foot in the adult industry again.

SUBMIT REVIEW
  • A beautiful face but there's no shred of talent here other than doing sex acts.

    2.1
    Why do people call porn stars actors and actresses? They're not. They're performing sex acts and get paid just like someone would do with a prostitute or a gigolo. Jenna is recognized definitely for what "she does". However, this is not acting nor will it ever be considered acting. Real acting is actually taking act classes, working for free, auditioning and the like.



    During a VH1 interview I saw with Jenna a couple of years ago. She confessed like many other familiar porn stars to have a dysfunctional life riddle with drugs. She even said she hated men yet she decided to do porn. Much like Traci Lords it's just another case of how these kind of people live in their own little world. She wants to break into break mainstream movies but most of the stuff (as expected) has been junk and as expected much of her "act" gigs still revolve around her showing her body.moreless
  • My idol...

    One of the best porn actresses ever. Woman who knows how to be herself and make money being it. She looks perfect, and do what she loves... I really envy her.

    As an actress, well she don't really has to act a lot, accept, I guess, fake orgasmes. And she is really great in that. That's what my boy-friends said to me. :) Just kidding. I saw that myself. Not that I'm watching porn or anything. I mean, I do, sometimes. Better to live this this way.

    So Jenna is now an entity. Everyone knows about her, everyone likes her... And she wrote a book, too. I really need to find some time to read it. Maybe I can even learn how to make love like a porn star... Hope so...moreless
