Mini Bio (1)

Jenna Jameson was born and raised in Las Vegas by her father, and by the time she was 18 the bright lights were already drawing her in. She studied ballet, but it was stripping that started her on her road to superstardom. Dancing led to nude modeling, and by her 20th birthday she had appeared in dozens of top men's mags, including "Penthouse", "Hustler", "High Society" and "Cheri". A visit to a porn set piqued her interest in a hardcore career, and Wicked Pictures signed her to an exclusive contract after a bidding war. It took only a few releases for Jenna to become the most popular young starlet around. She catapulted to the top of the porn heap, and in 1996 she scored an unprecedented triple crown by taking home the XRCO Best New Starlet, the F.O.X.E. Video Vixen and the AVN Best New Starlet awards. Jenna has been branching out into more mainstream projects lately, including a featured role in Howard Stern's Private Parts (1997). She remains one of the most popular pornstresses in the industry today.

Personal Quotes (8)

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.
[in response to a question at the 2003 X-Rated Critics Organization Awards] Is it just me, or is a porn award show just not the right place to be discussing your thoughts on the war?
I know that when I do get pregnant, I won't step one foot in the adult industry again.
The funny thing about being a porn star is that everyone automatically assumes that they can sleep with you. This is what I do for a living. I don't just let anyone get into my pants.
Making eye contact during rough sex is roughly the equivalent trying to read [Fyodor Dostoevsky] on a rollercoaster.
I don't know exactly what I'm going to say to my sons, but I do know that I want them to understand that their mother loves them. I don't worry about what people think. I worry about what my sons think.
The moment you become a porn star, you will always be a porn star for the rest of your life.
[on Cindy Crawford] I kept getting a weird vibe from her. I knew what it meant, because I'd experienced it so many times before, but I kept dismissing it. It couldn't be true; she was Cindy Crawford. When I turned my back... Cindy reached over and rubbed the back of my neck. "Ooh", she cooed. "Look at your beautiful tattoo." She touched my neck so softly and sensually.
