Stormy Daniels' Porn Star Biography
Stormy Daniels grew up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, raised by her single mother. She attended a magnet school and was the editor of her high school paper and president of the 4-H club. Daniels began her career in adult entertainment when she started stripping at a club in Baton Rouge while still in high school. She worked there until she made the transition to performing in XXX movies in 2000. It was while working at the club that she met porn star Devon Michaels, who was only a feature-dancer at the time. Michaels invited Daniels to come to Los Angeles for a movie shoot, where she subsequently co-starred in a scene with Michaels. Daniels went on to build an incredibly successful career as a performer, at first only doing girl/girl scenes, but branching out to boy/girl scenes in no time. Known for her intellect and writing ability, it wasn't long before Wicked Pictures gave Daniels the opportunity to begin writing and directing her own titles for the studio.
Notable Films and Niches
Over the course of her career, Daniels worked with many of the industry's finest production companies, including Wicked Pictures, Hustler Video, Jill Kelly Productions, Simon Wolf, and many more. She only performed in lesbian content for the first 2 years of her career, but in 2002, Daniels was cast as the lead in a feature film for Wicked Pictures called Heat, where she did her first boy-girl scene. In September of the same year, she signed an exclusive contract with Wicked. Daniels has now performed in a variety of niches, including anal, group sex, lesbian content, solo masturbation scenes, and more. Notable films include All Anal 1 (Jill Kelly Productions), Blonde Lesbians (Wicked Pictures), Grand Opening (Vivid), and Trailer Trash Nurses 6 (Legend Video).
Directorial Debut and Projects
Beside her acting career, Daniels also has had quite a successful directing career in porn. In 2004, just 4 years after her adult film debut, Daniels stepped behind the camera to give directing a try. She has now produced more than 60 films for Wicked Pictures. Notable directorial projects include At First Sight, For Love, Money Or A Green Card, One Wild And Crazy Night, Right Amount of Wrong, and Stormy Daniels' Private Eyes.
In early 2018, Stormy Daniels announced that her longstanding contract as a Wicked Pictures director/performer had ended, and that she was moving on to direct for Digital Playground.
Modeling and Mainstream Media Appearances
In addition to her acting and directing work, Daniels has also modeled for various outlets over the years. She has appeared in several popular men's magazines including Playboy, Hustler, Penthouse, High Society, GQ, and FHM. She has also written for FHM. Daniels also appeared in an episode of HBO's Real Sex where she is seen participating in 2001 Miss Nude Great Plains Contest. In early 2007, she appeared in Dirt on the FX Network, where she played a stripper who helps to set up a basketball player played by Rick Fox. Later in 2007, Daniels appeared in Maroon 5's music video for their song "Wake Up Call" as a pole dancer. She appears in the film The 40-Year-Old Virgin as the main character watches her in the video Space Nuts: Episode 69-Unholy Union. She also plays a Las Vegas lap dancer in Knocked Up, alongside fellow porn star Nautica Thorn. A deleted scene on the Virgin DVD includes her having dinner with producer Seth Rogen in a parody of My Dinner with Andre. In 2018, in direct response to the Donald Trump controversy, Stormy Daniels appeared on the Saturday Night Live cold-open alongside Alec Baldwin and Ben Stiller.
Stormy Daniels and Donald Trump
In early 2018, Stormy became the focus of national media attention when The Wall Street Journal reported on a non-disclosure agreement between Stormy and then-presidential candidate Donald Trump that was arranged by attorney Michael Cohen in October of 2016. Questions arose as to whether that payment constituted a violation of campaign finance laws. In subsequent interviews, Daniels abided by the NDA until March 2018, when she filed a lawsuit to void the NDA as it was never signed by Trump himself. While the lawsuit was still pending, Stormy Daniels was interviewed by Anderson Cooper for 60 Minutes where she discussed an alleged affair with Donald Trump from 2006 and the non-disclosure agreement. The interview aired during primetime on Sunday, March 25th, 2018 and attracted an incredible 22 million viewers. The media frenzy that followed led to Daniels making a cameo on Saturday Night Live. In 2018, Stormy Daniels became a household name.
In October 2018, Stormy Daniels released her tell-all memoir, entitled Full Disclosure, through St. Martin's Press. The memoir highlights her upbringing, her lifelong love of horseback riding, her entrance into the adult film industry, and - of course - her infamous encounter with Donald Trump.
The city of West Hollywood deemed May 23, 2018 as "Stormy Daniels Day," where Daniels gave a speech and received a key to the city from the mayor. After her whirlwind year in 2018, Stormy Daniels was asked to host the 2019 XBIZ Awards the following January, where she also received a well-deserved "Crossover Star of the Year" award.
