Personal Quotes (10)

As an actor I put my strong passion in anything I do. It can be porno, or it can be straight movies. The main difference generally, is emotions and physical. Unfortunately, we [in the porn industry] look more for the double penetrations or triple penetrations than how all this penetrations can start.
I tell him it's my vocation, the dream of my life. He was with two girls and he told me, 'Let me see what you know.' I remember having sex in front of 200 people and in the morning I was in his studio working. [on his first breakthrough into the adult film industry when he met Gabriel Pontello. editor of "Supersex" magazine.]
"I have no idea. But if you count about 600 films, you can multiply each film with three to four women. And that does not include the women I had sex with for photo-shoots. I did much more photo-shoots than films. I guess I had sex with about 3000 women, but that's a rough estimate. And it also doesn't include my normal girlfriends, women I had affairs with." - On how many models he has had sex with.
"In my real life I never do that. It's too exhausting." - On having sex with three women at the same time for a porn movie.
"Constantly, and it starts to annoy me. In France almost everybody recognises me wherever I go. In Italy too it's impossible for me to walk somewhere without being recognised." - On being recognised.
"No, you just have to eat healthy and stay fit. I am a performer. It doesn't matter whether you drink or smoke, as long as you have a clean spirit. You can't have any stress, when you have stress you can forget it. You got to have a clean mind." - On how to stay fit and healthy as a performer.
"Never, I don't use anything at all. I don't even drink or smoke. Never tried it in my life. I only know a few people who use cocaine. Even in the States the white powder is 'out'." - On if he uses a stimulant to increase his onscreen performance.
"I like two sorts; they must be very feminine, or very young. So very feminine females or young teenagers. Color of the hair or things like that don't matter to me." - On the sort of women he is into.
To do porn-shootings isn't always nice: you do everything in front of a camera, and you can never forget about that. You're a professional in the first place. In my private life, I only do those things which I want to do with my partner.
When I started in this business I would have been willing to pay to be in it from my own pocket, that is how much I wanted to be in this business. Today, it's funny saying that, because now I am probably the most paid actor in porn, because one day I decided that this was going to be my life. People told me that I was good, and I realized that I couldn't work for everyone, because I would kill myself with work, so I raised my price several times, so that I could get to a point where only certain people could afford me. As an actor, I like working with girls who are here for the same reason I am here, to have fun and make good movies. They give you real scenes with real passion and no bullshitting. I hate bullshitting.
