She has become an icon of pop culture and has crossed the borders of porn; Sasha Grey is a retired American porn star originally from Sacramento, California. Her real name is Marina Ann Hantzis and she was born on March 14, 1988. She is a model, "conventional" film actress, a successful writer and even a musician. She has also been a gay rights activist and a PETA member. She has been known by other names such as Sascha Gray, Anna Karina, Sacha Gray or Sasha Gray.
Sasha Grey and porn
In 2006, shortly after turning 18, Sasha Grey moved to Los Angeles to start her career as a porn star. She started with the artistic name of Anna Karina before using the current one that we all know today, which she chose to create a mix between the name of a member of the KMFDM music group, Sascha Konietzko and the Oscar Wilde novel, The Portrait of Dorian Gray. Her first scene was a great premiere, nothing more and nothing less than the porn king Rocco Siffredi. It is an orgy starring the Italian actor in the movie The Fashionistas 2 directed by John Stagliano of the producer Evil Angel. It is said that during filming Sasha asked her co-star Rocco Siffredi to punch her in the stomach while sucking his cock. This surprised the actor a lot and gave presence to the young actress who would soon begin to stand out for her alternative style. Just six months after filming her first scene, she appeared in a major Los Angeles magazine, Los Angeles Magazine, in which the girl was described as a potential adult movie star and was compared to the famous nineties star Jenna Jameson (although physically they do not look like anything).
Just one year after her debut, the Californian girl was already starting to be nominated for prestigious awards in the sector and to win them. In 2007 she won two AVN awards for best group sex scene and best trio scene. In 2008 she became the youngest girl to win the AVN award for best actress of the year.
When Sasha Grey appeared in the industry, it was undoubtedly a breath of fresh air. Her image away from the stereotypes of the nineties of large operated tits and blonde hair gave her a different image, that of a young body of adolescent, with small tits, a good ass and a sweet face. All that aspect counteracts with all the dirty things this girl has shown to master in her x scenes. Sasha has experienced everything in her x videos, anal scenes (anal sex is one of her strengths, she has brutal scenes of ass fucking), blowjobs and deep throats (she is an expert on that subject), threesomes, orgies, lesbian scenes , scenes from ass to mouth, swallowed cumshot, pussy licking, black kisses... and a very long etcetera.
She once called herself an "existentialist porn star" and the truth is that Sasha Grey has overcome porn to become much more than an X movie actress.
On April 8, 2011, after having participated in more than 200 films for adults, Sasha Grey announced through her Facebook profile her retirement from the X cinema with only 23 years.
Sasha Grey as an actress
The young pornstar was not only limited to adult films, she made the leap to traditional cinema and also made appearances in television series. Her most relevant work in this field has been starring in the film The Girlfriend Experience by the award-winning and acclaimed director Steven Soderbergh and co-starring with Elijah Wood the Spanish film Open Windows by Nacho Vigalondo. She has made more appearances in the form of cameo and supporting roles in more low-budget films. On television, she appears in several episodes of the famous HBO Entourage series playing herself.
Her work as a writer
Sasha Grey is also a writer and in 2013 she published her first novel The Juliette Society of Erotic Character that was very well received. Before in 2011, a book of photographs of the actress entitled NEU Sex had already been published. The pornstar has also held talks in favor of reading to promote this habit among the youngest people. In 2011, she participated in an event at a primary school in Los Angeles to promote reading among children, however, this gesture did not please the parents of the children in the center who complained about her presence, which generated a great controversy.
Sasha in music
Grey also dares in the world of music and in 2008 she started a project with Pablo St. Francis called ATelecine. Her first album was produced by the company Pendu Sound and released on vinyl record. In addition, she participated singing in the album Aleph at Hallucinatory Mountain of Current 93.
Sasha Grey has become an icon of pop culture. In addition to all the facets already mentioned, she posed as a model for Max Ready to Wear, was the image of the Italian footwear brand Forfex and modeled for Richard Kern as part of the "anti-fashion" design of Vice magazine. Sasha has also appeared twice in the famous Playboy magazine, one of them on the cover and was also interviewed in the prestigious Rolling Stone. In 2011 she appeared in Eminem's Space Bound music video playing the character's girlfriend of the song. That same year, she participated in a well-known video game, Saints Row, as a secondary but important character in the plot.
