Stormy Daniels was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on March 17 th . That’s St. Patrick’s Day, which is appropriate since I’m Irish...Well, half Irish and half Cherokee, that is.
My parents divorced when I was four and my mother raised me. I haven’t had any contact with my father for almost ten years—his loss. Growing up, my mother had to work two jobs so I was left to my own devices quite a bit. Although it made me very sad at the time, I think it has contributed to my success. I learned how to be independent and taught me to be creative and inventive. I came up with quite a few interesting ways to keep myself entertained for longs hours. My writing came as a direct result of this. I used to write stories and poems and then re-enact them with my pets and stuffed animals. I guess you can say I was destined to be a director. LOL!
Growing up, I was really into horses. I still am! They are my passion! The only regret I have about being in the adult business is that my hectic travel schedule has forced me to temporarily give up riding. I started riding at age eleven and was a force to reckoned with on the jumper circuit by age thirteen. I did a lot training and showing all through high school.
Besides riding, I took dance lessons. I started ballet when I was only four and continued all through school. I even performed in a few productions of the local ballet company in Baton Rouge. I still know every step to the “Nutcracker” which was my favorite. I was also on my high school dance ensemble. I have always loved to dance. I am luckier than most strippers because I can honestly say that I love dancing and being on stage.
I did well in school---smarter than your average stripper! I even went to a Magnet school for advanced students and still averaged A’s. Believe it or not, I was president of the 4-H club and the editor of my school paper. I had my heart set on being a veterinarian, and even received numerous scholarship offers. I decided to take a break from school and see what the world had to offer...and that included getting naked.
I actually started stripping while I was still in high school and underage. I don’t want to get anyone in trouble, so I won’t elaborate too much. I was not getting along with my mom, so my boyfriend and I got an apartment. I was seventeen and a senior in high school. I met a girl at a party and she told me she was a dancer. She said I should give it a try. I did and I loved it! I danced weekends until I graduated. Right after my eighteenth birthday, I went to work at a fancier club. It was the Gold Club of Baton Rouge. It was there that I saw my first feature entertainer. Her name was Raquel Darringer and I knew that was what I wanted to become.
I worked at the club every night for three years and talked to lots of features about getting into feature dancing. Some of them were helpful and encouraging; some where snobby bitches. Devon Michaels and Leslie Wells were particularly pivotal in aiding my quest. I started saving for costumes and got a boob job. This was something that I had wanted to do way before I started dancing. Stripping just gave me an excuse and the funds to go through with it. I sent my photos to a photographer and he accepted me. Quickly, he got me published in lots of magazines. (Unfortunately, he never paid me) From there, it just sort of came together. I got my costumes and choreographed my shows. I entered a contest in August of 2000 and placed really well. One month later, I was booked solid on the road. I spent two years, driving across the country and performing in clubs. I was booked forty-five weeks a year! I was practically living in my SUV, but I was living my dream. I won several pageants and was on the cover of almost every men’s magazine, but soon I wanted more. I was topped out on rate and hungry for the next step. I wanted to become a real star.
I decided to come to Los Angeles in May 2002 to perform in a girl/girl scene with my friend Devon Michaels. It was the turning point in my life, and I owe her credit for where I am today. My first scene was in SinCity’s “American Girls Part 2”. She also introduced me to Wicked Pictures contract director Brad Armstrong, who took an immediate liking to me. He told me that if I wanted to stay for a few more days, that he could get me more work. I was terrified, but it was Devon who gave me an inspirational speech and convinced me to stay. Brad took me in and taught me the ropes :) I was supposed to stay for five days, but I never went home.
I did just girl/girl work for the first four months until Wicked offered me my first starring role. I did my first boy/girl scene in “Heat”. The owner of Wicked liked my performance so much that he signed me to a contract in September 2002. It was one of the most memorable days of my life! Along with it, came a contract for my own adult toy line with California Exotic Novelties. I quickly immersed myself in every aspect of the industry, wanting to learn as much as I could about everything. I was only with the company for four months when I wrote my first screenplay. It was entitled “Kink” and Devinn Lane was the star. The company was so impressed, that my contract was expanded to include writing.
I went on that first year to appear as one of the main character’s in the Playboy series “7Lives Xposed” and do a cameo in Century Fox’s “The Girl Next Door”. I also starred in Jonathan Morgan’s award-winning sci-fi parody “Space Nuts” which led to huge exposure when HBO followed me around during the filming for their series “Pornucopia”. I went on that year to appear in a Penthouse layout and the cover of Hustler. I also was listed as #42 in the mainstream magazine Femme Fatale’s list of “Sexiest Women of the Year”.
2004 began with a bang when I took home AVN’s most coveted award: Starlet of the Year. I got my own KSEX radio show and won “Sexiest Porn Jockey” for my efforts, which I just took home for the second year in a row. I continued traveling as a feature dancer and was the first adult star to be nominated by Exotic Dancer Magazine as “Entertainer of the Year” for two years in a row. In addition, I took home my third gold medal straight at the Gold G-string Awards and won Nightmoves “Best Actress” at the Tampa Show. That summer I took the leap into directing. My directorial debut “One Night in Vegas” starring Kaylani Lei was a hit and Wicked added directing to my contract when I re-signed for my third year in the fall of 2004.
At the start of 2005, I also decided to move into more mainstream opportunities. I became the official sex advisor for FHM Mexico with a two page layout every month and began hosting parties for the World Party all over the globe. I auditioned for and won a part in Universal Studio’s blockbuster “The 40 Year Old Virgin” and have recently appeared in both the New York Times and the Chicago Tribune. That year also saw me make an important move on the internet. I was one of the select few to sign a deal and join the prestigious ranks at ClubJennaInc. With only two titles out as a director, I took home two “Best New Director Awards”.
My success in transitioning from actress to director led to my story being published in the book “Naked Ambition”. I did the book tour circuit, reading my chapter at stores in several US cities. This gave me the courage to do something everyone considered me crazy for trying! I did a movie entitled “Three Wishes” which I not only penned, but also directed AND starred in. Luckily, I accomplished it and am happy to say that I proved a lot of people wrong!
At the end of 2005, I was crowned “Centerfold of the Year” by High Society Magazine. The magazine decided to take it one step further and offered me the position of entertainment editor, which I happily accepted. My column can be read every month in the magazine.
As a performer, I continued to star in some of the biggest releases from Wicked Pictures. Both of my movies “Eternity” and “Camp Cuddly Pines Power Tool Massacre” received numerous nominations. At the 2006 AVN awards, I claimed “Best Supporting Actress” and “Best Screenplay” for the latter and one week later I was selected “Star of Year” at the CAVR awards.
2006 will see me adding yet another title to my long list of job credits....producer. I have taken the final step and I am starting my own production company Stormy Industries which will be distributed through Wicked Pictures, where I remain a contract star/writer/ and director.
I look forward to the future and to continuing to grow in a business that I love....
