Personal Quotes (4)
I keep really separated from the industry because I don't want to get pulled into that where you get pulled into your own PR and you're running around with your head so swelled you can't get through doors. I like to keep a low profile, comfortable.
I do so few films, actually--one a year or something like that. It's just the ones that I'm in I carefully pick, plan--I make sure it's like Ben-Hur (1959). I handpick all the actors I work with. Porn stars--myself included--only have so much life. If you pour it out in a year, you get burned out. If you can afford to carefully do a movie a year, then that's looking for a career. As long as I look good in front of the camera. When I start looking bad, I'll be the first to get off screen.
Someone had labeled me a "straight actor in gay porn," but "universal," I think, is the only word I could actually use to describe my sexuality. I think humans are humans. I could be sitting next to god knows what and get turned on.
[About his son] I try to keep him safe and protected. He's a fabulous kid. I raised him since 1, after a lengthy court battle for physical possession. And the girl--I knew the girl for like three or four days and she was like, "Let's do a movie." Some movie. She stalked me for a year--I know exactly how it went. I should have used a cigar.
