Die-Screaming interviews pornstar Marica Hase
Marica Hase is one of the hardest working people in porn. She would have to be in order to accomplish all that she has; First Japanese Penthouse Pet, two-time XBIZ Foreign Female Performer of the Year nominee and an XXX star in both the American and Japanese porn industries. That’s more shit than I’ll ever accomplish in my whole life.
I recently had the opportunity to interview Marica and my questions and her answers are listed below. For those not familiar, Ms. Hase began her hardcore career in Japan as a JAV Idol, was selected by Penthouse as their January 2013 Pet of the Month and then worked her way into the US porn scene. A multi AVN Award nominated performer, Marica Hase has so far appeared in nearly 250 dirty movies and has hundreds of thousands of followers on social media.
Marica Hase | The Die-Screaming interview…
Die-Screaming: Being selected as the first Japanese Penthouse Pet is a pretty impressive accomplishment. What was that experience like for you?
Marica Hase: We did not have Penthouse in Japan and my English skills were very bad when I became a Penthouse Pet. I didn’t understand what a big deal it was to be a Pet. All my Pet Sisters said that they celebrated for a month when they were named Pets. That made me want to celebrate too.
Even without the celebration, it was one of the best experiences of my life and I’m proud to be a Pet. Penthouse taught me how to be a strong, sweet and sexy lady and all my Pet Sisters are very sweet and beautiful. Penthouse owner Kelly Holland is the greatest lady and always takes care of her Pets and I really love her.
In your experience, what’s the biggest difference between the Japanese and American porn industries?
Most American guys think strong and curvy lady is sexy. So many award winning female performer try to be strong. But Japanese guys think weak and a tiny lady/kawaii is what’s sexy. So many award-winning Japanese female performer appear to be weak. It really means the total opposite. The difference between the two industries was harder than learning English when I came here.
What was the hardest part for you when you made your move into shooting XXX in the United States?
Kind of the same answer the last question. The English part was hard for me. I only had two sentences for my first USA shoot. I said, “My name is Marica Hase” and “Hello”. But the hardest part is the different expressions. Like for sex, Americans answer with yes or no, which is very direct.
In Japan, our answer is just a smile. We think it’s more polite. So for me, the acting part of the shoot is still difficult. But I’m always working on my English because I want more roles with acting.
I understand that you’ve directed a few hardcore films over in Japan. Is that something you’d like to do in the US and, if so, any plans to do that any time soon?
Not soon. But, I love the creative process and am definitely interested in directing films. I want to do things beyond performing and am thinking about how cool it would be to direct a very Japanese style movie here in the U.S.
As you look back over your career, what have been some of your movies that stand out in your mind as being your favorites?
I think about my first anal shoot. I think already I was one of the top girls in Japan before it was even shot, as I was a contract star with biggest studio. I was in great situation—all my scenes were Kawaii type scenes, meaning no BDSM, Anal, or rough sex and more like dating with boyfriend and having sex for the time. My fans are were always awaiting my Kawaii style of scenes. I didn’t have to crazy scenes and also wasn’t interested in those type of sex, and I was scared of anal, too.
But, I wanted a certain persona in the Japanese porn industry and become the top star. Most of the big name girls don’t shoot any crazy scenes (rough sex, anal sex and BDSM). Then, I started my first anal scenes and them some crazy rough scenes, too. Everybody was surprised because I was a shy small kawaii style girl and I suddenly started doing these very rough scenes. But, it was a lot of fun to have a new style and get more people interested in me. I think I became one of the top girls at the time, and then I got chance to come here.
So, my first anal shoot stands out in all my scenes—it changed my career.
What’s your favorite type of music? Favorite bands or singers?
Globe, Ringo Shiina and Kaera Kimura. They’re all J-Pop singers. I am still in the process of learning English songs. If your readers want to recommend any English songs that are easy to learn, I’m all for it now.
Do you have any new scenes coming out that we should know about?
Yes. Recently, I did two Asian scenes. One is Asian Super Squirters for Lesbian X and the other is a nine-person orgy for Zero Tolerance. Both will be my new favorites when they come out.
