Blessed with a pretty face and the body of a ballerina, possessed of an insatiable need for sex and an impossibly hot speaking voice, Jenna Haze has been a porn icon for the millennial generation ever since she made her debut in July of 2001, working with Miles Long in Service Animals 4 (Evil Angel/Joey Silvera Video). After ten successful years as a performer, Jenna called it quits on her porn star career yesterday (February 7, 2012) with a video announcement directed at her fans. This news comes only a month after Jenna’s induction into the AVN Hall of Fame.
She last filmed a scene in March 2011, but Jenna has been keeping busy with directing and several non-adult projects, including a high-profile coup: the cover of FHM magazine with her friend Taylor Momsen, a mainstream actress.
Thanking her many fans for all their support during her 10-year career as a porn star, Jenna said she isn’t leaving the industry. She will continue dirtying up our minds from behind the scenes as a director, something she’s been doing since 2005 with Gonzo Jenna Haze Style for Jill Kelly Productions, her onetime contract studio.
Jenna has proven to be one of modern porn’s most versatile stars, performing everything from extreme gonzo to glamorous lesbian with equal passion and devastating beauty. Even her lez-only scenes span a wide range, including the nasty anal play of Gape Lovers 3 (Jay Sin Video/Evil Angel) and the prettier erotic tease of her own Meow (Jennaration X Studios/Jules Jordan Video).
For the porn-viewing public, it was love at first sight with this self-described “stoner chick” from Fullerton, California. At 15, Jenna had started home schooling and working odd jobs such as fast food manager, oil change girl, toy store shelf stocker, and waitress. She already seemed to be searching for her purpose. On her 18th birthday she tried stripping but quit after a day. At 19, Jenna met someone in the adult industry. The day after, she went in for her test and quickly found work.
Not long after making her start in porn, Jenna won two AVN Awards in 2003: Best New Starlet of the Year and Best Solo Sex Scene. Her career has skyrocketed ever since, with her Jill Kelly Productions contract (she left in 2005 following Jill Kelly’s own departure), a sex column in Fox magazine, feature dancing, and cameos in mainstream movies Superbad and Crank: High Voltage. Over the years, AVN, XRCO, FAME and others have made sure Jenna’s trophy shelf is overcrowded. Her absolutely essential Interactive Sex with Jenna Haze from Zero Tolerance, a perennial seller for good reason, netted her an AVN Award for Best Interactive DVD in 2008. In 2009, XBIZ, XRCO and AVN all named Jenna Female Performer of the Year. That same year, Jenna and her friend Belladonna made AVN Awards history as the first girls to co-host the ceremony; the two have had white-hot sex on camera together in Fashionistas Safado: The Challenge (Evil Angel/Buttman Magazine Choice), Fetish Fanatic 2 (Evil Angel/Belladonna Entertainment), and Slumber Party 18 (Shane’s World).
In 2009 Jenna launched her own production company called Jennaration X Studios, distributed through her ex-boyfriend Jules Jordan’s company. Released in March of that year, Cum-Spoiled Sluts was the first Jennaration X release, starring Jenna along with other hotties such as the incredible Bobbi Starr and Nikki Rhodes. Nearly three years later, the studio has nearly two dozen releases available to view in our VOD Theatre, including some must-sees for all you Jenna fans, the Just Jenna series.
Jenna leaves an impressive legacy, including a line of Fleshlight sex toys molded on her own body and, of course, hundreds of stunning scenes to her name. Among her many unforgettable performances, there are some standouts we’re unlikely to forget. We love her fishnet-clad anal extravaganza with female fan favorite James Deen in Elegant Angel‘s 2007 ass fetish classic Big Wet Asses 12. Something about James always brought out an even nastier depth to Jenna’s already cum-craving performances. If you’re looking for Jenna in a group fuck, there are two great ones in Deviance 2 from Adam & Eve and SkinworXXX. One scene is a threeway, with Jenna and Alexis Texas teaming up on Mr. Pete as a horny priest (playing up to that mega-steamy fantasy of tempting the man of the cloth into breaking his vows of chastity). The other is a zombie-themed all-girl orgy between Jenna, Teagan Presley, Nikki Benz, and Adrenalynn. It must be seen to be believed!
The departure of one of the porn industry’s greatest and most long-lasting stars is a sad day, but don’t let it get you down. Let her hundreds of movies get you up instead!
