[edit] Biography

Grey was born and raised in North Highlands, California, as Marina Ann Hantzis on March 14, 1988, to a working class family. Her mother worked for the state of California and her father is a mechanic. Her ancestry includes Greek, Irish, and Polish. Her parents divorced when she was five years old and subsequently she was raised by her mother, who remarried in 2000. She's stated that while her parents hated her involvement in the adult industry that they get along.

Grey attended four high schools, among them Highlands High, before graduating, having been unhappy in each one, though she graduated a year early at 17 years old. In late 2005, she attended junior college and took classes in film, dance, and acting. She waited tables at a steakhouse through March 2006 and saved $7,000 for a move to Los Angeles.

Since 2006, she has been developing an autobiographical documentary, illustrating her experiences from the age of 18 to 21. She was reported in a Rolling Stone interview in 2009 as being engaged to filmmaker Ian Cinnamon. Grey identifies as bisexual, and she has also stated that she is an atheist.

In November 2011, Grey participated in the Guest Reading Program at Emerson Elementary School in Compton, California. Reportedly her involvement in such activity was first denied by school officials. She had not appeared on the guest list under her stage name of "Sasha Grey", but under her real name. Some parents were upset that a former pornographic actress would read to their children as part of an education program; Grey responded to the controversy: "I believe education is a universal right. I committed to this program with the understanding that people would have their own opinions about what I have done, who I am and what I represent." Grey also appeared on the American talk show "The View" where she explained that she thought the parents ought to have been given prior notice of the identity of anyone who did guest reading, and that if parents had objected to her she would not have done it.

Grey stands 5'6" tall and weighs around 110 pounds.

[edit] Pornography career

In May 2006, Grey moved to Los Angeles and started her career in adult films just after turning 18. Originally, she toyed with the porn name Anna Karina, taken after the French New Wave actress, before deciding on her present name. The name "Sasha" was taken from Sascha Konietzko of the band KMFDM, and "Grey" represents Oscar Wilde’s novel The Picture of Dorian Gray. Her first scene was an orgy with Rocco Siffredi for "The Fashionistas 2" by John Stagliano. Grey has used the other names Anna Karina, Sascha Grey and Sasha Gray in her porn career.

Grey quickly made a name for herself in the business after she asked Siffredi to punch her in the stomach, however, she later stated that she was improvising and that the incident was taken out of context.

In February 2007, she appeared on "The Tyra Banks Show", discussing teenagers in the sex industry. There was speculation that the show was heavily manipulated through editing and did not include her defense of pornography as a career choice. The show was also criticized for twisting Grey's physical depiction to increase its dramatic value. Grey was named "Pet of The Month" for July 2007 and was photographed by fashion photographer Terry Richardson.

Grey was profiled in the Rolling Stone "Hot Issue" for the December 2008 edition. Grey formerly represented herself for a time in the adult industry through her own agency, L.A. Factory Girls. Grey has indicated particular appreciation for the work of Andrew Blake and Kimberly Kane. A. O. Scott of The New York Times described her pornographic career as "distinguished both by the extremity of what she is willing to do and an unusual degree of intellectual seriousness about doing it." In 2009, she was voted number 1 on Genesis magazine's 11th annual edition of its "Porn’s Hot 100" issue.

In 2011, she was named by CNBC as one of the 12 most popular stars in porn. CNBC also noted that, while she was no longer acting in porn films at the time, her current mainstream roles have kept interest in her earlier porn work high and that several companies continue to release compilations of her earlier work. Grey filmed her last pornographic film at age 21, although she did not announce her retirement for some time after, realizing that many of her fans still believed her to be an active performer in the industry. On April 8, 2011, she officially announced her retirement from adult films on Facebook.

Grey made 270 adult films and directed three adult films herself.
