The adult industry is known to transform it's male and female stars. In the case of Chyna, this transition will allow her fans to see her in a more personal environment. Even though her endeavors have always brought a high level of excitement, her new path will show off a more emotional side of this talented woman. It will make people see her in a different and better light. One can say that it's Chyna unplugged. Furthermore, I hope that she will receive the opportunities to show off her acting abilities in character driven roles as she desires. Chyna deserves it. However, for now, we can enjoy watching her in Vivid's Backdoor to Chyna.
Hi Chyna, it's great to see you back on screen. Why did do decide to get back into porn?
Well, I didn't really get back into porn. I'd never really been in it. I decided to make poison into medicine. Over the last couple years, I've been really getting my power back and cleaning up my life regarding the people around me and giving closure to some rather big obstacles I've overcome in my past. Without harping on it or giving it any credit, I took the most violating disgusting thing that has ever happened to me and I decided to do a real porno; a sexy empowering movie. I had full control and Vivid treated me like a beautiful Princess! I felt like I really needed to do this right now. I made the right choice. It was complete freedom!
Who made the first move. Did Vivid approach you first or did you go to them with the idea?
I have been in touch with Vivid for a while. It was a mutual project, and when Steven Hirsch is interested, it's something I couldn't turn down. Vivid works with the most beautiful, sexy women and men in the world! It's a complete honor and complement to do a movie with Vivid! I used to go down Sunset Blvd. and see the pictures of the beautiful girls, and see the calendars in the stores and think "Oh my God! They're so beautiful and sexy. I wish I could be like them!"
Did you have an idea of what type of film you wanted to make such as the male and female stars who you would want to be paired with? If so, why them?
Well, I wanted to work with the hottest most beautiful and sexy stars, and they wanted to work with me also which makes a huge difference. You would think there would be a lot of ego and jealousy, but it was exactly the opposite. The people I worked with were huge fans and were as excited to work with me as I was to work with them, and I was really in their element so I wanted the best and the most beautiful. They made me feel more than comfortable!
You have your very first all-Girl sex scene in this film. How was that experience? I think that Diana Prince and Dylan Ryder were a great match-up for you? In a way, they remind me of you a bit.
Diana and Dylan are so beautiful, and they are really fun and flirty. In this tape I wanted to try everything and I knew it would be in a sexy fun and safe way. This was the first all girl experience for me and it was really fun and easy going. I was wondering "What do I do?" I was nervous. Plus, this was my first scene ever! Once we started, it was very natural, and I knew that it was also a really pretty visual art. Just positioning ourselves and getting ready and sensually kissing and touching was really pretty. I thought we all had similar characteristics as well; a sexy brunette Charlie's sex angels!
You also have a very intense anal scene. Were you very nervous the night before the shoot? How was that experience?
I guess you could say I satisfied a "BIG" curiosity about the anal scene! Yes, oh yes. I was very nervous about it! I felt it was important for me to do that in a relaxed sexy experimental and curious environment. That way I got to actually experience it. Not sure how to describe it? It was definitely hot in a taboo type of way and I say if you are really going to do something, do it BIG or go home! LOL! When I was done, I felt like I won this huge physical award or something! LOL!
There is no doubt that when people see you in person or on film that you are quite striking. You are so hot. In your opinion, what makes a man sexy? What makes a woman sexy? What traits of a man do you admire? What traits of a woman do you admire?
Thank you for the compliment. That always feels good to hear doesn't it? Part of being sexy is a confidence and control over your body and how you carry yourself. Don't you ever notice that sometimes after you know a person they become twice as attractive? It's definitely that way in porn. Everyone is exceptional looking to begin with, but then, they have this "sexual" personality, and that is so so sexy!!!! I wanted to experience all of that. The men were definitely strong, sexy, confident, very hard and very masculine. The women were very beautiful, flirty, and fun. On set and off, we giggled, laughed and talked a lot, and it was fun!
Are there any industry people (actors, actresses, directors, even studios) that you would like to work with in the future? What would be your dream scene?
I wasn't sure what my experience was going to be like doing a porn, but I knew I was going to get the best with Vivid so I was not scared to do it, just a little nervous. Maybe a little insecure since I didn't know anything about the business. People know me all over the world so I knew that there would be a lot of opinion and judgment to go along with the movie. However, I am a woman who has always tried new and adventurous things that most people would never dare to do, and I am proud of that. So I shut all of that out and completely went for the once in a lifetime experience. I have to honestly say I never felt so free and sexy and beautiful and had so much fun at the same time. I felt like a star while filming also! I definitely would do this again in the future and I would love to do some fun fantasy set type of thing! Maybe something more scripted? More character driven. That would be so cool. I am so happy to have worked with the people in the movie. I'd like to work with them again for sure! I speak often with the girls and we have become great friends, and the boys are complete gentlemen. I have gotten out of this movie something I never got out of my personal life!!!! Go figure!
What is your favorite thing about being an adult performer?
My favorite thing about being an adult performer is that it contains all of the elements I love! I have to admit I am a born entertainer! I love the camera, I love the "star" aspect of it all, I love the fun, the freedom, and the creativity of following a guideline, yet adding your own style and personality to everything. The sex is better for me on the set rather than in my personal life because you already know what you will and won't do, so you can be really free and GO FOR IT! I really admire the confidence of the performers and the comfort of it all. It's really empowering and very logical to me.
How were you as a kid?
As a child I was always very outgoing. I was always singing, dancing, jumping around, playing music, and swimming. I loved performing and costumes and I had traveled and was always educated and cultured from a very early age. I think that it always made me nonjudgmental and I saw the world as this big place. I still do, and I feel it's OK to try everything. It blows my mind when I think of all the things I have accomplished in this world so far. It's really remarkable!!! Sometimes it doesn't even seem real! I still feel that way! More more! Give me more!
What are your interests and hobbies?
I love the water, so anything that has to do with sailing, swimming, and frolicking in the water. One of my dreams is to live on the water one day. I love makeup and fashion, reading, yoga, and watching movies. I love spending time with friends, good food, and good company. I love to travel. Usually my work ends up being a "hobby" in a way, which is a true success in my opinion.
What would you like to see happen in your career?
I have no idea what will happen in my career. I still keep doing new and exciting things. I have been fortunate in that way. This movie is a big fearless bold move and I am really, really excited about it. I'm proud of it. It was a great experience and I hope it will bring some great new ventures. I know if I am happy and feeling great right now, there is a lot to be said for that! On a personal note, I have yet to meet the man of my dreams too!
