In a world of copycat porn where everyone spots a trend and follows it, Gianna doesn't follow the crowd. She has an all natural look to her that sets her apart from all others to the point that you would never mistake her for another porn star. Gianna is all woman and is not afraid to speak her mind or afraid to call you out. In this interview with XRentDVD's Big D, conducted at the 2007 AVN Expo in Las Vegas, Gianna reveals that the porn industry actually found her, discusses why having sex on camera comes naturally and what aspect of the porn empire she hopes to conquer next.
Big D: You have been in for just about two years doing porn. For the people that are unfamiliar with who you and what you are all about tell me how did you get your start, why you chose to get into porn and why you have chosen to stay it as long as you have.
Gianna: Actually, the porn industry introduced itself to me. I was approached a few times by a couple of different agents randomly while I was walking home from work or just in the process of living my life. It kept on presenting itself and eventually I thought, 'you know what? I am just going to give it a try.' I had no strings attached holding me to it. If I did not like it, I can walk away after the first shoot. I ended up not having an issue with it. I loved the fucking money and loved what I was doing and decided to make a career of it for a while as long as it lasts.
Big D: How long do you think that is going to be?
Gianna: I would like to stay in it in front of the camera -- I don't want to put limits on myself -- but at least for two more years. That means I would be filming in front of the camera. I am working on a website right now which is Giannaxxx.com. I am going to see how that goes. I am expecting it to do pretty well because I am going to do a lot of personal stuff with it. I am going to maintain it personally and do some webcam stuff with it. I see that going very well and I am excited about that. We'll just see what happens. I am not one to really put a deadline on anything.
Big D: You mentioned that you didn't seek working in porn but essentially the porn industry approached you. Did you struggle with the decision to make that jump into it or was it something you had wanted to do and thought about before being approached?
Gianna: I thought going in it was going to be a struggle to stay in porn but after my scene it all felt so normal. I wasn't conflicted in any way by what I had done. I had no guilt or regret or anything. It was what it was pretty much and I decided that I didn't have a problem doing it. There really isn't a long story behind it. My attitude was 'why fucking not?'
Big D: What was your first reaction when you were walking home from work and someone approaches you to see if you wanted to be in porn?
Gianna: It wasn't necessarily they would ask me, 'do you want to be in porn?' They would ask me, 'do you want to be a model?' I got stuck on that at first because I was very interested in it. It then became something obviously a lot more than just 'modeling'. It eventually became more nudes and more adult. It just took off from there. It piqued my curiosity and I just kind of gave it a try and decided 'let's fucking do it'.
Big D: You mentioned your first scene felt so natural. What was it for?
Gianna: I actually did two shoots in one day. One of them was for Rodney Moore which was Goo Girls #17. The other one was for Red Light District at the time for Vince Vouyer in Young Ripe Mellons #7. In those movies I worked with two very cool people. In the first one I worked with Rodney Moore and the second one was Randy Spears. They were both very cool and very comfortable to be around and it all seemed so natural.
Big D: With both those titles you mentioned being your first ones, which would be the DVDs you would suggest people rent or buy if they are not familiar with your body of work?
Gianna: Truthfully, I would have to say not some of the stuff I did in my earlier career. It was all very much so much fun but I was still learning myself then. A lot of the stuff I feel is better is the stuff that I have shot more recently. One movie I just did was with Jonni Darkko from Evil Angel and it was a movie he did just focusing on me. That one is called G for Gianna. I haven't seen it yet but I know it came out good. I had fun filming every single, last scene. I would also suggest some of the stuff I have done for Robby D over at Digital Playground like My First Porn #7. All of the stuff I have shot for Mercenary I've enjoyed them all. On top of the Jonni Darkko film but all of the stuff I have done for Evil Angel in general has also been great.
Big D: You've been in the industry for about two years now and you are not the cookie cutter porn girl. You are all natural with no plastic surgery and you are not this frail, stick figure stereotypical blonde porn star. You are a freaking woman in every sense of the word. What do you attribute your success and popularity in porn while still not having the same look as all of the other porn stars?
Gianna: I think you basically answered that question yourself. I am not every other chick that is in the industry. There is nothing wrong with any of the women that are in the industry because everyone is different. It is just that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I am grateful for my success and as long as people continue to like me I plan on fucking sticking around.
Big D: You mentioned a number of people already of people that you have enjoyed working with. Are there still some people out there whether it be male or female talent, directors or studios that you have not worked for but you would like to some day down the road?
Gianna: I have not done any feature work. I would love to do that. I would love to work for bigger name studios like Wicked and Vivid and all of them.
Big D: First job?
Gianna: I worked at a hamburger joint up in Seattle called Dick's.
Big D: First concert?
Gianna: Never been to one
Big D: First car?
Gianna: 2001 Acura CL
Big D: What's in your CD player right now?
Gianna: It's a six disc changer and three of them are all old school 1970's love songs. I have one Scarface, one Tupac and a mix CD of hip hop.
Gianna: I don't even know the name of it but it was some girl/girl video and it was fucking hot. I don't know who the chicks were and I don't know what it was. There was another one that I saw when I was really young. The girl was putting whipped cream on the dude's penis. I didn't even know what a penis was at that time.
Big D: Favorite position?
Big D: Go to the movies or go to the ballgame?
Gianna: It depends on if it was a good movie. I would go to a fucking ballgame if it was nice outside. If it was ugly I would go to the theater even if it was a stupid movie.
Big D: What modern convenience can you not live without?
Gianna: Mascara. I would also have to say my cell phone.
Big D: Favorite mainstream movie?
Gianna: I liked Ghost and Dirty Dancing. I like Scarface. All that old stuff.
Big D: Favorite vacation spot?
Big D: Person you'd like to meet that you have not met?
