Die-Screaming interviews Australian porn superstar Angela White
I recently had the opportunity to interview Angela White. For those that aren’t familiar, Ms. White just happens to be one of the most popular female XXX performers on Earth. A big reason for that success and notoriety can be attributed back to the films that she stars in and directs for AGW Entertainment…a studio that she owns.
Loyal Die-Screaming readers (which don’t really exist) should already know all about Angela White, as I’ve written about her quite frequently. For the rest of you, you may want to watch the trailer for Angela Loves Women 2, read my review of Angela Loves Gonzo and get my thoughts on her ten greatest XXX films. And now, on to the interview!
Angela White | The Die-Screaming interview
Die-Screaming: You started doing porn while still in high school, which sounds like it might be incredibly difficult to manage. What was that like for you and how did you not only survive it, but become really successful at it?
Angela White: I had wanted to perform in pornography from the age of 14 so it was exciting to finally turn 18 and be able to pursue my dream. When I was in high school there was no anti-slut-shaming movement or SlutWalk. I was criticized heavily for expressing my bisexuality so openly. Pornography appeared to me to be a space in which I could explore my sexual desires and fantasies with like-minded peers.
So performing in pornography while I was still in high school was not something that I had to ‘manage’ or ‘survive’ – performing in pornography finally gave me a chance to be myself. I think this has been a large part of my success in the industry; authentic passion and desire resonates with fans.
2015 was arguably the most successful year of your career to date. What kind of pressure does that put on you to match or beat that going forward?
The release of Angela 2 made 2015 an amazing year for me both as a performer and a director. I don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon, but it’s not the pressure to ‘be successful’ that drives me. I am fortunate to be in an industry that allows me to experiment with fantasies and experience new sensations and this inspires me to explore the depth and breadth of my sexuality.
What advice would you give to any girl who’s looking to begin a career in porn?
Always follow your passion and only ever do what you are comfortable with.
In addition to being an international porn superstar, you’ve also graduated from university with honors, ran for political office in Australia, spent a year studying in Paris, had a recurring role in one of Australia’s most popular sitcoms, been featured in many documentaries and have appeared on the covers and front pages of magazines and newspapers around the world. What in the hell is there left for you to do?
I still plan on going back to university to pursue a Ph.D in Gender Studies. There are also other things I want to experience and achieve in the pornography industry but I’m going to keep my lips sealed on what those things are. In my usual style, you’ll be hearing about some surprises very soon.
If you could change one thing about the porn industry, what would it be and why?
The biggest negative about performing in pornography is the stigma associated with it. The industry is shrouded by myths of drug addiction and sexual abuse which are simply not true.
What’s the most challenging part of owning your own XXX production company?
All the paperwork. It’s a requirement, but I’d much rather be fucking.
What’s been your proudest achievement over the span of your porn career?
Doing my first double anal and double vaginal. That probably sounds like a really weird thing to be ‘proud’ of but it was more what it represented than the acts themselves. It demonstrated that I had reached a point in my life where I was confident enough to allow myself to be vulnerable and completely let myself go in the moment.
Also, I’m really proud of all of my wins at the 2016 AVN, XBIZ and XRCO awards particularly winning the XBIZ Award for Foreign Female Performer of the Year. That was a dream come true!
Assuming you have free time, which maybe you don’t, what do you do for fun?
I never find myself with free time anymore, unless I schedule it in. A perfect day for me would involve a delicious meal, a luxurious massage, a long make-out session, great sex and a good book.
As a former political candidate yourself, do you have any thoughts or predictions about the American presidential race?
I’m going to answer this like a true politician and say that I have confidence in the democratic process and I trust that the American people will make the right choice for the future of their country.
What can fans expect to see from Angela White in the second half of 2016?
Oh I never kiss and tell. You’ll have to watch this space…
