Sasha Grey, the former most famous porn star

Sasha Grey was born in North Highlands (near Sacramento) from a humble family: her mother was an employee of the State of California and the father a mechanic of Greek origin. His parents divorced when she was 5 and Grey grows with her mother, who remarried in 2000.

In an interview with Maxim magazine, Grey told that her parents were not happy with his pornographic activities, but still maintained a good relationship with them. She attended high school in four different institutions: none of these were easy, but still manages to graduate at 17, with a year earlier. In 2006, after finishing her studies, she works as a waitress in a steak house in Sacramento, setting aside $ 7,000 to move to Los Angeles.

Exceeded 18 years, she decided to pursue a career as a porn star, contacting the agent Mark Spiegler and moving to Los Angeles. Her first scene, played in May 2006, is a gangbang. In the November 2006, the Los Angeles Magazine, while it disapproves the professional choice, writes that Grey has the potential to become a star, perhaps the next Jenna Jameson. Grey also appeared in The Tyra Banks Show in February 2007. Following in a interview revealed that she had misrepresented: the staff of the show had changed her clothes and her hairstyle to give her a youthful appearance and provide an opportunity to Tyra Banks to criticize his decision to pursue a career in porn.

On April 8 2011 Sasha Grey announced the withdrawal from the adult film with a statement posted on her Facebook page.
