Xcitement magazine just published an exclusive interview with our beloved Hanna Hilton (I think in 2008??). I have a copy of it for you here. Enjoy! 🙂
She’s the Mom to a four-year old and the girlfriend to porn guy, Jack Venice. She’s a new citizen of Houston, Texas, and a small business owner. She’s also a beautiful girl with a tiny waist and huge all natural boobs; the perfect candidate to be a porn star. But it took awhile for her to get to that point. As a matter of fact it took her a couple years to work up too. But it was sure worth waiting for! Hanna Hilton started out as a nude model and ended up as a Vivid Contract star, now making her third movie. Want to know what happened in the middle? Hanna’s a bit shy at first during our interview, but she warmed up to me after a little while. Here’s the story…
Hanna Hilton Interview
X : Hi Hanna. So you are in Texas right now. Do you live in there?
Hanna Hilton : Yes. I live in Houston.
X : How is it?
Hanna Hilton : I love it here.
X : Well you don’t have an accent, but you grew up in Indiana right? Is the re an Indiana accent?
Hanna Hilton : I don’t think so.
X : Do the people in Texas talk Southern?
Hanna Hilton : Not so much. I’ve run into a few but not really.
X : Is Houston a party town like LA and Fort Lauderdale?
Hanna Hilton : I think it can be if you want it to be. I don’t really know. I’m not a partying girl.
X : So you are not a go out and party girl. That means you are a stay at home, watch movies and cuddle on the couch girl.
Hanna Hilton : Yeah.
X : LA is too much. I don’t know how anyone can live that life of partying every night. I’d rather be home with my family.
Hanna Hilton : I’m the same way. When I do these interviews people always expect something else out of me. They want me to say something crazy or be somebody I’m not. I’m boring.
X : Just because you are normal doesn’t mean you are boring. There is a certain image that is expected of you because you are a porn star, I guess, and that’s not alwaysfair. Just like when people think anyone involved in the adult industry is a drug addict and a sex addict. And often it’s just not true.
Hanna Hilton : Right. When a regular actress in a movie plays a role, it doesn’t mean she is like that in real life. This is my job. It’s my work. It’s what I do. When I am home, I am a normal girl.
X : I know how you feel. When I say I’m a writer people always ask what I write. I say I write about the adult industry and I either get a “cool” or a snotty “oh”.
Hanna Hilton : I’m the same way. I have a four year old little boy and I’ve lived in Houston for about six months now and I’ll meet people and they ask me what I do for a living and I almost don’t know what to say because it’s such a crazy mixed reaction.
X : You don’t know if you are going to get a smile, a smirk or a dirty look. And even if you get a smile, the minute you walk away you know they are going to be talking about you.
Hanna Hilton : Exactly.
X : You could tell people that you go out to LA to do parts in movies. That’s not a lie, it’s just not the whole truth.
Hanna Hilton : Before I would say I’m a nude model, because for a few years I just modeled for magazines and did my website, and that wasn’t really a big deal. But now that I have signed with Vivid, it’s kind of awkward. It seems like people think because I have signed with Vivid I am a different person or something.
X : You couldn’t have signed with a company with a better image. If you are going to be an adult star, there is no better place to be.
Hanna Hilton : Oh I am definitely very lucky. I’ve gotten to work with all the best companies in all the aspects of porn.
X : So you started nude modeling about three years ago?
Hanna Hilton : The first time I came to LA was in June 2006. A little over two years ago, I shot my cover for Hustler.
X : So that was when you started and you were only doing soft core nudes.
Hanna Hilton : I was doing magazine shoots, stuff for websites and stuff for my own website. I did layouts for all the major magazines. I made a living like that for two years. I would go to LA about a week out of every month.
X : Did you progressively get a little sexier in your layouts? Did you do solo masturbation scenes?
Hanna Hilton : When I first went out I was so shy. I eventually got more comfortable in my own skin. I got more comfortable being naked in front of the camera and in front of other people. I just slowly progressed. I am really glad that I took my time.
X : So you didn’t shoot your triple anal scene yet then.
Hanna Hilton : (Cracks up) No.
X : In your magazine layouts did you do girl/girl layouts and guy/girl layouts?
Hanna Hilton : No. I didn’t. I would shoot with a girl, but there was no sex involved. It was just posing together. Playing with each other’s boobs. I didn’t shoot my first hardcore m agazine layout until after I shot my first hardcore scene.
X : What was your first scene?
Hanna Hilton : My first scene was for Brazzers.com with Jack Venice. It was for their website of Real Wife Stories. I am this housewife that doesn’t get enough sex from her husband so I end up having sex with my personal trainer.
X : Well Jack is a good looking personal trainer.
Hanna Hilton : I’m into blonde haired, blue-eyed boys.
X : So you cheated on your husband with your personal trainer. So how many scenes did you do before you signed your contract for Vivid.
Hanna Hilton : One.
X : That’s it. That must have been one helluva scene Hanna.
Hanna Hilton : Vivid had contacted my manager a while back and asked if I would do boy/girl but I wasn’t ready at that time. So I don’t think anyone had even seen my scene before I signed. I did two scenes for Brazzers because I had already agreed to do them before=2 0I signed. I don’t think the second one is out yet. So those are the only scenes I’ve done that aren’t for Vivid.
X : When did you do your first scene?
Hanna Hilton : It was in March or April that I shot for Brazzers.
X : And then you signed with Vivid in May. What did you do as your first scene for them?
Hanna Hilton : I’m modeling for a photographer and he is taking still photos and the shoot progresses and I’ll willing to do more and more on camera until eventually I start doing the photographer. I think the movie will be called Sugar. It’s not out yet.
X : Did you do that scene with Jack too?
Hanna Hilton : Yes. My second Vivid scene was with Rocco Reed.
X : So Jack was okay with you doing other guys.
Hanna Hilton : He was fine with it. At first when I was going to do hardcore, I only wanted to work with Jack. But I realized if I wanted to have a career and this is what I wanted to do for a living, that i t wouldn’t work. It might work if it was a normal guy that you could give a million different looks. But Jack has the tattoos and he’s just too noticeable. People would get sick of seeing the same thing over and over.
X : Viewers don’t like seeing you with the same guy. I don’t know why, because the guys watching aren’t looking at the guy anyway, but they don’t like that for some reason.
Hanna Hilton : I don’t know either, but it’s cool. Jack’s cool with it.
X : Jack does scenes with everybody, right?
Hanna Hilton : He did. But he’s not really working in the industry anymore.
X : Is he coming back to the industry?
Hanna Hilton : I don’t know. I don’t think so. We just started a business and he’s running that.
X : That’s great! When you decide to retire your business will be going well and you have that to go to.
Hanna Hilton : It works out perfectly with my little boy. Jack sta ys home and plays Mr. Mom when I am gone working.
X : That’s so adorable. I can’t see Jack being Mr. Mom. He’s so macho.
Hanna Hilton : Nobody could. He’s never really had a relationship before me. Even when I met him it took me a while to say I would try this out. He is different then the person that everyone sees in front of the camera.
X : I’m sure. Because I see a tough guy, Marine, with a crew cut and tattoos, but he has a soft side that you see. I know a few guys like that. Tera’s husband, Evan Seinfeld is a rock star with a ton of tattoos and he played a mean convict on Oz. But when you get to know him, he is a sweetheart. Don’t tell him I told you that though, I don’t want to ruin his reputation.
Hanna Hilton : I met him and Tera. We did a Vivid movie called Red and it was with all six of the Vivid girls. He was on the set and he was really nice to me. I was the new girl and I was nervous. He told me to calm down and relax. Put your shoes on, point your toes. He was great. He was really cool.
X : Yes he is. I know you did another movie called Meggan and Hanna Love Manuel.
Hanna Hilton : That is the first one that everyone will be able to go out and buy.
X : Have you watched it yet?
Hanna Hilton : I haven’t. I have a copy on the top of my bedroom closet. I want to watch it. But I want to watch it by myself.
X : Why?
Hanna Hilton : I don’t know if I want to watch myself having sex or not.
X : Are you kind of nervous to watch it? Like, I want to watch it, but I’m afraid to watch it.
Hanna Hilton : Exactly. It’s almost like if I watch this and think I did something wrong it’s going to be in my head every time I’m working.
X : Well you are practiced at modeling, but you are new at this, so you don’t know yet exactly where to put your legs and how to turn your body.
Hanna Hilton : It’s completely different to have sex on camera. You are supposed to be getting into it and actually letting yourself loose and have a good scene, and remember to suck in my stomach and turn this way. It’s awkward for me still. I think it’s going to take a while for me to get used to. I don’t know I don’t think I am ready to watch it yet.
X : I totally understand. Here’s what I want to know, how come the movie is called Meggan and Hanna and not Hanna and Meggan Love Manuel.
Hanna Hilton : Because she signed with them in January and I think it’s her first movie released with them also.
X : So she gets her name first because she was signed first?
Hanna Hilton : I think that’s why they did it like that.
X : So you aren’t a catty bitch like me that says why isn’t my name first!
Hanna Hilton : If I do another movie and my name is not first I’ll be pissed. (laughs)
X : Does anyone ever tell you that you look like someone else?
Hanna Hilton : Yes. I get that all the t ime. People always look at me and think I am somebody else. I have heard from Kirsten Dunn to Cameron Diez to the blonde girl in The HeartBreak Kid and 27 Dresses. Everyone tells me I look like her lately. I can’t remember her name.
X : You know who you remind me of, and maybe it’s partially because of your name, but Hannah Harper. Did anyone ever tell you that?
Hanna Hilton : Uhm, yeah Derek (of LA Direct who was in a relationship with Hannah Harper for years) has told me that I remind him of her.
X : Uh, oh. You do resemble her though. Even your shyness and being a homebody remind me of her.
Hanna Hilton : I’ve never met her. She’s gorgeous though, I have seen photos. So that is definitely a compliment.
X : Yes it is. She is gorgeous and so are you. Where did you get those boobs, my God?
Hanna Hilton : (Laughs) I don’t know
X : Does your Mom and your aunts have huge boobs?
Hanna Hilton : They all have C’s or small D s. I think I got them from the women in my Dad’s family, but I never really met any of his side.
X : Well you got all the good stuff, because you are so thin, and then you have huge boobs. People who meet you must for sure think you have fake boobs.
Hanna Hilton : Always. Always. They don’t believe me when I say they are real.
X : Well that’s not a bad thing, for people to think your boobs are so nice that you must have paid for them, when you got ‘em for free. So do you do girl/girl scenes?
Hanna Hilton : I’ve never done a one on one girl/girl scene. Well in the Red movie I was in a six-girl orgy. But other than that I’ve done scenes with a guy and a girl.
X : That’s tough, you had to do a scene with five Vivid girls. (Laughs) Who did you really like when you met the girls?
Hanna Hilton : Well Tera directed the movie and she was awesome.
X : Yeah she is.
Hanna Hilton : She’s one of those=2 0people that you think they will be intimidating in person because she is beautiful, she has her own company, you think oh wow, she is going to be a complete bitch, but she was amazing. She was so nice and helpful and just great. I knew Meggan because we shot Love Manuel together. I knew Sunny Leone from before from Penthouse. She is one of my favorites. I met all the girls but there was so much going on with people running in and out of makeup chairs and trying to get ready and do stills. It was a bit of a mad house. I didn’t really get to have one on one time with some of the girls. I pretty much hung out with Sunny and Meggan.
X : Okay, sex time, I read that you had sex in an elevator in the MGM Hotel in Vegas.
Hanna Hilton : I did.
X : There’s cameras in there and I bet those security guards went home and took those tape with them.
Hanna Hilton : I didn’t really think of it at the time. I’m not a really big drinker, but when I do drink, watch out. That was definitely the most crazy place I ever had sex in my real life.
X : Was it really quick or did you stop th e elevator?
Hanna Hilton : It was very quick. It was maybe a minute in the elevator, and then we finished in the room.
X : That must have been exciting. Did you ever have sex outside?
Hanna Hilton : I have had sex outside, in a pool or a hot tub or in my back yard. I have done it behind a church in a car. I had the same boyfriend all through high school and both of our houses were off limits, so we had to get creative. Most of the time we were in a car.
X : Did you ever get caught?
Hanna Hilton : No. I didn’t.
X : Do you have a set of rules of what you will do and will not do on camera?
Hanna Hilton : I’m not really into anal, so I said no anal. But I don’t do that in my personal life.
X : Would you do an orgy with boys and girls?
Hanna Hilton : I don’t know. I think I need to s lowly progress just like I did with my whole career. I need to get used to boy/girl scenes and boy/girl/girl scenes and then maybe we can add some people in there. I just have to get comfortable with each level. I think it’s really good to leave people looking forward to something. If you do everything all at once then it’s not as fun for fans or for you.
X : You got your hair cut short for some of the pictures I have. Is it still short?
Hanna Hilton : It is. I like it because it is lower maintenance. My hair does not grow. It’s really fine. The longest it’s been is just past my shoulders. All the long hair pictures you see are extensions. I love them but they are way too much up keep for me.
X : Well you look adorable with your short hair and it makes you stand out from all the other blondes with big boobs.
Hanna Hilton : Lots of big boobs and long blonde hair. I think this is my own unique thing.
X : Do you have an unfulfilled fantasy?
Hanna Hilton : The only fantasy that I ever had was to be with a soldier in his uniform, and his camis. I love that. And my ex-husband was in the army so I got that.
X : And wasn’t Jack a Marine?
Hanna Hilton : Yes. I like those military types.
X : So all our men in uniform out there feel free to write to Hanna. She loves you soldiers.
Hanna Hilton : I do. That’s what it says for my turn-on in Penthouse.
X : Has anything funny happened since you started working for Vivid?
Hanna Hilton : Just a few weeks ago I was filming a new movie called Bounce and I was doing this scene, and being as graceful as I am, I got a cramp and I scoot back to stretch and I didn’t realize I was on the edge of the bed and it was like THUD. I fell so hard backwards and hit my head on the floor and I felt stupid and I had to get up with the whole crew laughing at me and finish the scene, with my cheeks bright red.
X : Which cheeks? Just kidding. I hope they got that on the BTS. Do you ever get recognized in Houston?
Hanna Hilton : No I haven’t. But we were at Walmart the other day in the parking lot walking to our car. This car was going by us really slow. To tell you the truth I thought this dude was checking me out or something. That is what is going through my head, pervert. So then the guy pulls up and says “Hey Jack! I’ve seen your movies !” I started cracking up.
X : So the hell with you Hanna, he was interested in your boyfriend! Do you have a message for your fans?
Hanna Hilton : I hope you enjoy my work and it’s new to me and I am just learning, so don’t be too hard on me if I fall off any more beds.
