Interview with Jenna Haze
This is my interview with Jenna Haze at the Adult Entertainment Expo in January. Sheís extremely nice and just as beautiful in person as she is in her movies. We talked about her busy life, who she does her best scenes with, how her directing career is coming along and more.
Alison: Howís the convention going so far, Jenna?
Jenna: Itís good, itís really good.
A: Have you done a lot of signings, met a lot of fans?
J: Yes, I signed for six hours yesterday and Iíve already signed for almost four hours today and Iíve got another three, soÖ
A: You must be pretty tired.
J: No, Iím used to it.
A: You really seem like the consummate porn star. You bring everything to your scenes every time. How do you do it?
J: [laughs] It just comes naturally. I like my job and when the camera rolls I do my thing.
A: What are your favorite things to do in your scenes?
J: Since I was under contract for so long doing only girls, now doing guys is the best. Of course, sucking cock. Anal scenes are probably my little niche Ė my favorite thing to do, besides blowjobs.
A: Who do you really like to work with?
J: Guys or girls?
A: Hmm. Guys.
J: James Deen, Johnny Sins, Manuel Ferrara, all yummy yummies.
A: Basically, the guys with the biggest dicks.
J: Pretty much [laughs]. I like the big ones. And Scott Nails, how could I forget Scott Nails?
A: How about girls?
J: Belladonna. Monique Alexander is my ex-girlfriend and she was awesome to work with. Theyíre both two of my favorite girls. Joanna Angel is my best friend, sheís always fun to work with.
I did a great scene with Gianna years ago for Fashionistas. That was amazing, with Gianna and Rocco. Sheís an amazing performer and I love her a lot.
Alexis Texas, I just did an all-girl scene with her and she was fucking awesome. Slammin.
A: She has a great ass
J: Beautiful ass. I just buried my face in it. You couldnít even see it. It was gone.
A: When doing a girl-girl scene, some performers really get into their scenes and get wet and some donít. Is it important to you that your partner likes women?
J: Yeah, definitely. Itís always good to see that theyíre really excited and really into it. Wetness is always a plus, right? Dry is not sexy.
A: How many years have you been doing porn now?
J: Seven and a half
A: And youíre not sick of it at all?
J: I have my times when I get a little burned out on work in general, not necessarily the work Iím doing. Just because Iím directing now and doing my own stuff, Iím also working for other people, Iím also feature dancing, Iím also doing my website and doing signings and stuff.
A: When do you sleep??
J: I donít! Iíve been trying to be good and get like six hours sleep every night while Iím here, you know, but you know Vegas.
A: How do you like directing so far?
J: Itís hard. Itís really hard. A lot harder than I thought it was gonna be. Itís definitely going to be a learning process for me.
A: Do you think that since youíve been performing for so long, you bring something special to directing?
J: Iím hoping to bring something special to directing. Once I get all my nervousness and second-guessing myself out of the way, you know. In the first movie I directed there was a lot of, ďIs this hot? I donít know. Should I shoot that? Is that good enough? Are they gonna like that? I donít know What should I do?Ē So the first one was definitely very good for my first one, but I expect it to just get better and better.
A: What kind of movies do you really want to make?
J: Just hot movies. Movies of people having real sex. You know, I donít want fake orgasms and all that stuff, I just want real sex. Gonzo, you know. Just get to the point.
I want to do a variety of stuff though. I want to do gonzo stuff, I want to do vignettes, Iíll probably never do features, itís just not my thing. But I also want to do stuff thatís really different, really arty, really edgy.
A: When do you think you want to start getting into the really arty stuff?
J: Hopefully soon. ďCum-Spoiled SlutsĒ was my first movie and will be my signature series, I think. And then Iím doing my anal movie second, and then my next one will be the arty movie.
A: That sounds like fun. Is it fun getting to come up with your own ideas for movies?
J: Itís fun, but itís also very expensive and so much work! I never realized there was so much to directing. I thought, ďOh you turn the camera on and you just tell them what you want to see and they go.Ē But thereís really a technique to it and I feel lucky because I have my boyfriend Jules [Jordan] to teach me. Hopefully heíll teach me everything he knows and Iíll become the best female director in the business. [laughs]
A: I have no doubt that if thatís your goal, youíll do it. Is it nice being with someone whoís also in the industry who understands what itís like?
J: I would definitely never date anyone outside the business because thereís too much drama, too much headache, too much difficulty and Iím not changing what I do for anybody.
A: Thatís great. You know, after this long in the business, you have a lot of devoted fans who probably know a lot about you. Is there anything you think theyíd be surprised to find out?
J: I donít know. People ask me this question a lot and Iím so much ďmeĒ on camera that I feel like Iím known to all of my fans. I always just say that Iím a dork. People donít realize what a nerd I really am and how clumsy I really am. I fell down some stairs, actually, before I came here. So yeah, I have my moments. [laughs]
A: Well, Jenna, it was so nice talking to you. Enjoy the rest of the show.
J: Thanks, you too.
