I find it interesting that she's talking of writing and directing, and shaking up the industry, but you get the impression that porn is a monolithic sector that sees no need for change, and certainly no interest in anything that'll stop the profits, they'll keep on selling what already works. Is she willing to work on the fringes of the industry, where there might be more licence for experimentation that's not so commercial?

At the moment, she's a novelty, so it's hard to say how things will develop for her. Will she be yet another young person in that industry with big ideas that come to nothing? There's not really a long tradition of porn performers being 'allowed' to cross over and leave that definition behind. Sure, plenty have popped up in the occasional mainstream film here and there, but they get treated with curiosity and used for media coverage - actual respect over time for their wider skills or work is never that forthcoming. It's as if their first job always defines them, no matter what else they do with their lives. It's as if there's an unspoken commandment that "you are a porn star and a porn star you must stay", even if they want to move on to something else.

Lol, I can't believe Sasha Grey has a thread here. I never saw her mainstream movie before but I have to admit I've seen a lot of her porn work before! That's the only work of her I have seen so far

A look at her performance in The Girlfriend Experience (guardian.co.uk):

Quote:
Why The Girlfriend Experience won't make Grey's day

Is it possible for a porn star to cross over into mainstream movies? Not even a lead role in a Steven Soderbergh movie will help.

28 November 2009

Judging by the evidence on display in The Girlfriend Experience, Steven Soderbergh's leading lady, 21-year-old veteran porn star Sasha Grey, won't be the first person to breach the rock-solid wall that – to the naked eye, at least – appears to separate respectable mainstream Hollywood from its disreputable, naked doppelganger over the hill in the San Fernando Valley.

As a high-end Manhattan escort servicing – or often simply talking with – a series of rich banking industry clients during the financial meltdown of last September, Grey gives one of those performances that leaves you asking: is this a great actress before me, deliberately draining herself of all emotional affect, or is this all the actual acting that Soderbergh was able to bully, trick or blackmail out of her? I think Soderbergh is wise to the nuances of the performance he gets, and wants us to ponder the ratio of documentary realism to cultivated artifice, but that won't make Sasha Grey the next Marilyn Monroe. Grey has a fairly depressing blue-collar upbringing behind her, but there is something bleakly stirring about her iron-willed determination to flourish in her chosen field while avoiding drugs, saving her money instead of blowing it on Escalades and plastic surgery, and representing herself in business dealings. Somewhere, in among the daily indignity and degradation, one can discern dim echoes of Horatio Alger's all-American, up-by-the-bootstraps, rags-to-riches narratives, just with added blowjobs.

Plus she has good taste in non-porno movies – Antonioni, for starters – and her first choice for a nom de porn was Anna Karina, which is encouraging. But if Grey pursues the dead dream of a porno-Hollywood crossover, she'll end up with a bull**** little toy career just like Traci Lords. To her credit, she shows no sign of wanting that. She's better off working herself up into a porn-star brand, like Jenna Jameson. Porn stars become freaks of nature (and/or poodle-rocker arm candy) once they drive over Laurel Canyon into Hollywood. There, no matter how hard they try, no one will ever let them forget what their last job was.

But perhaps Hollywood flatters itself too much when it condescends to its little sister industry. Serious petty cash is expended nightly by Tinseltown bigwigs (and middle-wigs) rich enough to fill their hot tubs and waterbeds with porn's newest stars. Are movie talent agencies like CAA and ICM in Beverly Hills any different in essence from adult industry agencies like Pretty Girl International or LA Direct Models in Chatsworth and Van Nuys? Hollywood prostitutes itself every day in ways that seem far more self-deceiving than the semi-legal actual prostitution occurring in porn, where the sleazy casting-couch rituals of Hollywood seem like just another day at the office.

She's really brilliant and well-spoken and if you've ever seen her host adult entertainment conventions on the G4 channel she has a very natural, easygoing, amazing way of carrying herself. I love how she's so dark and goth and she actually named herself after the lead singer of an industrial band.

Anyway, in terms of fashion, here's a nice video of her in Barbara Bui boots:

She's gorgeous, I think she's a classy and naturally beautiful version of Megan Fox. Her eyes caught me immediately.
