Sasha Grey Biography
Sasha Grey is a zeitgeist in the flesh; a 20-year-old princess of the porn industry with an innocent look and a huge X-rated filmography, glossy magazine star and muse of Smashing Pumpkins superchrist Billy Corgan
Any parent would be proud of their daughter like Sascha Grey: by her 20th birthday, which Sascha celebrated this spring, she already owns six weighty cinematic awards. Among them are the porn Oscars, the 2007 AVN awards for best simultaneous sex scene with three men in Fuck Slaves and best group sex scene (in which she participated with porn titan Rocco Cifferdi), as well as the AVN 2008 awards for best porn actress of the year and best oral sex on screen. The secret of her success is not easy – the porn business, in which she started acting at the age of just 18, has to be fully committed.
Her success in the XXX arena has not gone unnoticed by the omnivorous mainstream: Sasha Grey was asked by the glossy magazine Vice to promote such established brands as Roberto Cavalli, Fornarina, H&M, Diesel, Agent Provocateur, American Apparel and Wolford on its pages, with the art-porn genius Richard Kern being in charge of the photo-shoot. Penthouse magazine invited the great and terrible father of trash photography, Terry Richardson, to do a photoshoot with her. Grey has since appeared on the cover of the highbrow virtual erotic publication Goddess – worth noting that the calibre of photographer Briham Field’s shoot was divine. Grey has also starred in the art-porn film Broken, directed by former “red hot Chilean pepper” guitarist Dave Navarro.
She also posed for artist Shepard Fairey for the artwork on Smashing Pumpkins’ latest album Zeitgeist. Frontman of the band Billy Corgan was so impressed with the result that he immediately invited Sasha to star in an absolutely posh video for the psychedelic song “Superchrist”, which although not included in the track listing of the full release, but in every way made a lot of noise among the Smashing Pumpkins fans. Besides that, Sasha was also involved in the filming of The Roots’ ‘Birthday Girl’ video, and has appeared on TV many times, such as on Tyra Banks’ talk show, eagerly sharing her secrets with viewers. For instance, to improve the taste of her sperm, she advises men to eat more fruit, especially pineapple, and to avoid asparagus, coffee, alcohol and drugs in her diet, “which make it taste disgusting”.
Nevertheless, the young porn star demonstrates great taste in more than just tasting seed: she lists William Burroughs, Anais Nin, and Hunter Thompson as her favourite writers, and adores films by directors such as Michelangelo Antonioni, Werner Herzog, Lars von Trier and Jean-Luc Godard; She even wanted to use the pseudonym Anna Karina, the name of Godard’s ex-wife and muse, but Sacha’s agent dissuaded her from doing so, as it was too in tune with Leo Tolstoy’s tragic heroine Anna Karenina!
