Angelina Valentine interview
If animals could talk, they would continuously praise Angelina Valentine's efforts on being a hero to them. Her genuine love for animals is both sincere and heartfelt. It is no surprise to those who know her that she is fueling her own charity event with Taylor Wayne in April. Of course, Angelina is most recognized for her very successful porn career. Her performances in Teachers, Porn Fidelity 18, Shot Glasses 2, and Porn Fidelity 20 give the viewer a solid range of her incredible talents. Her upcoming lead role as Piper in This Ain't Charmed XXX has a lot of buzz. She is a one of a kind treasure whose glimmer always sparkles with each and every endeavor. Angelina's last name is fitting since she has a lot of love to offer to creatures big and small.
Hi Angelina, you are an amazing star. But, first, I would like to talk about your love for animals. I grew up on a fruit ranch and had many pets and animals around such as dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens, and hamsters. Did you have many pets growing up and how did your love for animals begin? Currently, you had announced a charity drive that you had started to help fight animal cruelty. Could you tell us what it is all about and how can people contribute to this worthy cause?
I had a bunch of wild and unusual animals. I grew up on a huge farm in Kentucky and my mother was a big animal lover herself so she was always cool with me bringing home stray cats, injured birds, lost puppies...if there was an animal around who needed some TLC, I was going to find them. I remember one summer I was mowing the lawn and accidentally dug up some baby ground hogs. There were 6 baby ground hogs..not old enough to be away from their mother. They were abandon. I took them in all wrapped up and neutered them back to health. They eventually got huge and they wouldn't leave my side.. they thought I was their mother.. I kept them for years and they were my babies! I was the child that always had animals... I loved them and they loved me. I thought when I was young, I was going to be a vet because of the love I have for animals. I am doing this charity so that I can make people aware of how serious animal cruelty is and how many innocent animals there are out there alone and scared that need our help. I have always been the one to step in and say something if I see any sign of animal cruelty... I always watch the Animal Planet and my heart goes out to all the animals that are in need. I have the biggest heart and soft spot for the animals. People don't understand that animals have feelings and without us to be their voices, they won't speak. I don't tolerate anyone who is abusive to any animal.....if more people know about the cruelty to animals, then more people will want to help...how could you not want to help?
Thank you for your dedication to animals. Now, let's talk about your incredible career. How long have you been in the industry, what have been your most pleasurable moments so far? What has been your least pleasurable?
I have been in the biz for 2 and a half years... My most pleasurable moment was probably when I got the Best Deep Throat award for 2009, and also got to go present an award at the 2010 avn!
How did you get into the adult industry?
I was actually discovered by a feature dancer who was featuring at the club I worked at in Kentucky. The girl was Adriana Sage. She gave me some great advice and told me I was very pretty and should try going to CALI to try out the adult biz. I loved the idea...
Congratulations on your recent XBIZ Female Performer of the Year nomination. From your outstanding 2009 body of work such as in Funny Bone, Jack's Teen America: Mission 23, and Shot Glasses 2, it is no surprise that you are getting noticed for them. What does it mean to you that the industry's movers and shakers still have so much confidence and reverence in your acting skills and professionalism?
I have always been a great actress... It's just one of those things that came easy for me.... when I was a little girl but dad would have me in acting class to keep me busy in the summer when school was out and I learned to love it. I am not a shy girl and I am confident in myself and I think that being confident in what you do reflects how you do something. I just have fun with everything that I do. I love being able to role play...It brings out my sexual fantasy side...my sexy side!
You have remarkable sexual chemistry with both men and women. What traits of a woman do you admire most? What makes a woman sexy? What traits of a man do you admire most? What makes a man sexy?
I love a woman who is very down to earth and who knows how to laugh. I hate the serious people....kinda weird's me out when people can't laugh and joke around. I think it's so sexy when a girl REALLY enjoys being with another girl and it's not just for the money. I can always tell the ones who love it and the ones who are just in it for the money. That's no fun and I am a VERY bisexual girl myself. I can't help getting turned on by girls. When it comes to guys, I would have to say that a man who is NOT COCKY and arrogant is sexy. I really can't stand when a guy is more into himself instead of the girl... I love a man who can get his hands dirty and who is a manly man. I am a southern girl and in the South, the man is in charge of doing the working and the woman is in charge of the household. I like the southern rules....if a man can't get his hands dirty and fix shit around the house, kinda kills it for me... I love my man being a guy and grabbing his junk and burping....so sexy to me!
Just recently, you have been selected as one of veteran reviewer Dr. Jay's Must-See Girls of 2010 from his well-respected list. What does that honor mean to you?
Being one of Dr.Jay's must see girl is such an honor to me!!!!! I almost shit my pants when he came to my booth while I was signing and handed me my award!!!!! I know that there were very limited girls who received these awards so I was honored to be one of those girls who got one. I have put in so much hard work over this last year and worked my ass off literally and it meant the world to me that people recognize my hard work...makes me want to work even harder now... I really appreciate it sooo much!
What was the biggest surprise for you about the adult industry when you started? How has the industry changed over the years?
To be honest the industry didn't really surprise me all that much. I was kinda expecting this. Nothing really surprised me in this industry. I think that the economy has changed our business. It def has changed since I've been in the game and I just hold on to my money a lot longer now..lol I have never been a splurger on money either... I conserve everything.
Are there any industry people (actors, actresses, directors, etc.) who you have not had the opportunity to work with yet and want to very badly and why? What would be your dream scene?
My dream scene would be with my favorite dude ever CRISS STROKES. He has the best dick in the biz...so anytime I get to fuck him I get all excited!!!!!
How were you as a kid growing up?
When I was as kid growing up, I was a wild child. I was always outside getting into mischief. I was def a girlie girl and I loooooved my barbies and my makeup. I wanted to be a princess and my parents did a good job spoiling me. I had everything a kid could ever want. I went to the best private schools, catholic schools. I didn't really dig that. I hated it. I wanted to be with all the normal kids at the public school...instead of with the stuck up brats that I had nothing in common with.
What are your hobbies and interests?
I love to party, get my nails and toes done, hanging out at my house, and watching scary movies!!!! I love being at my house. Cuddling and snuggling in my huge bed when it rains is the best thing to do....
What is your favorite thing about being an adult performer?
Getting to live life the way I want to live. Being a girl in the adult biz is cool cause people look at u like some celebrity.... That's cool...I love getting recognized.
Are there any web sites or future projects that you would like to promote? What are you currently working on film wise?
