Hollie Stevens Interviewby Ray | April 8th, 2006
Ray posts: One night in Vegas, Cat Pee invited me to a “Clown Porn” party. My mind raced as I envisioned the sick, twisted hijinks I would experience courtesy of the kind freaks at RAMCO. Was I going to witness clowns — possibly naked clowns — fucking each other?! I pictured a full-blown clown orgy — complete with midgets, rubber chickens, and cream pies. (Pun intended)
Sadly, I arrived to find nothing of the sort. But I did kick it with Hollie Stevens.
HOLLIE: There’s a girl in the industry who’s known for having the stinkiest pussy… Do you know who I’m talking about?
RAY: I have a pretty good idea, yes.
HOLLIE: Well, a guy told me that when he worked with her, he told her politely “hey, you know, you might wanna do something beforehand…” and she fucking flipped on him. “I don’t fuckin’ stink! Fuck you!”
CAT: Who can smell their own pussy?
HOLLIE: Well I guess her pussy is so fucking terrible…
CAT: On my sets, I’m gonna have the finger-test. That’s gonna be in the contract.
RAY: You’re wearing a fucking MINISTRY shirt. That rules.
HOLLIE: I got this shirt at their show in 1997. I was very excited. It was the first time I’d ever been backstage at a real concert.
RAY: You’re old school.
HOLLIE: Yeah. See, I’m established. Therefore, I can wear shit like this and get away with it. But I was never really a goth chick or anything like that… I just sort of wore whatever. I’m still sort of that way.
RAY: What did you do before porn?
HOLLIE: I was a stripper. Before that I was a waitress in a pretty nice restaurant. I had to wear the white polo shirt with the stupid tie and the khaki pants and the apron. I had to iron my clothes every day with starch. It really sucked. After that job, I said I would never iron again. Ever.
CAT: When she stripped, she would go up to guys that were sitting by the pole and go “you want some of this?” [Laughs] It was her signature move.
HOLLIE: Yeah, I was a terrible stripper. My boss always yelled at me because I wasn’t a hustler. I just like fucked-off the whole time.
RAY: Where did you dance?
HOLLIE: I lived in Kansas City.
CAT: She worked at an all-nude place. So there were a lot of 18-year-olds who were searching out the one girl they could afford for the one dance that evening…
HOLLIE: And there’d be the whole 2-for-1 thing. But for some reason nobody caught-on that it’s even shorter than a regular song.
RAY: Strip clubs are such a fucking shake-down. I can’t stand them.
CAT: One of the funniest moments was, one night she came home and said “Cat, you’re not gonna believe what I got. I got a chicken outfit!” I’m like “why?” She’s like “why not?!” I’m like “what are you gonna do with a chicken outfit?” She’s like “I’m gonna wear it onstage!” So she danced in a fuckin’ chicken outfit. Like with a head and everything. Then she had this hot, red-sequined bikini under it. It was one of the funniest fucking things ever.
RAY: How long have you been in porn?
HOLLIE: Three years. I don’t really have anything specific that I’m working on. I live in San Francisco.
RAY: I love San Fran-Freako.
HOLLIE: Yeah. Right now I’m pretty much just doing fetish stuff. That’s pretty much all there is there.
RAY: Like Fucking Machines?
HOLLIE: I did that once and it was a bad experience for me. Some people like it, but… Wasn’t my thing.
RAY: How did you get into porn?
HOLLIE: I was doing stripping. Then I went on to feature at different clubs. I knew that if I did a few movies then I’d be more well-known. I ended-up getting in touch with an agent who will remain nameless. He told me to come out here for two weeks. Two weeks turned into a month. A month turned into staying there.
CAT: What’s your relationship with your father?
RAY: Has Luke Ford been coaching you?
CAT: She likes to dress-up as a pirate just for fun.
HOLLIE: The pirate thing is sort of a ritual. I started when I was 17. It was whenever I would drink 151, the pirate suit had to come on. I pretty much become a pirate.
RAY: What else do you like to do?
HOLLIE: I paint. Acrylics. I do ironic pop-style art.
RAY: Do you have these displayed anywhere?
HOLLIE: No, I don’t. I pretty much just do it for myself.
RAY: So can people come over to your house and check it out?
RAY: Who do you like to work with?
HOLLIE: My favorite company to work for is RAMCO. As far as talent… You know, whenever people ask me that, I draw a complete blank.
RAY: What sucks about porn?
HOLLIE: The commercialism of it all. Everyone’s pretty much doing the same kind of thing. Which means anyone who does something “different” is suddenly labeled “a true artist”. And maybe, yeah, in a sense that’s true because they actually wanted to go against the grain. Good for them. But if people would be a little more open-minded and went a new direction with things. I mean, there’s a lot of things you can do. It all depends on who the company is and how big their budget is. But usually people with the biggest budget just want to do the same old shit.
RAY: Have you done features?
HOLLIE: Yeah, I have. I have a few favorite directors. Mainly because they’re really laid-back. I can’t stand a person who directs and stops you every five seconds.
CAT: I’ll remember that.
RAY: What’s your ultimate goal with porn?
HOLLIE: I don’t plan on doing it forever. I can’t. Well, I guess I could, but people would eventually be like “okay… we’re really tired of seeing you…”
RAY: Ever won an AVN award?
HOLLIE: Yes. It was for a film called The Violation of Jessica Darling. It was an all-girl gangbang. It was pretty brutal. Really hardcore.
RAY: Were you a bad girl growing up?
HOLLIE: Not really… My friends were. All the cops in town knew them by name. There was this one time, when we drove to this old-folks retirement home. We had a bunch of bottle-rockets and we were pretty intoxicated. So we’re shooting them out the car window at 3am, scaring the crap out of people. At one point, I had thought the person in the back seat had shot their rocket, so I rolled-up the window and I hear “Noooooooooo!” And the bottle-rocket starts shooting around the inside of the car! [Laughs] I don’t think anybody got hurt.
RAY: Wow… You hung around a dangerous crowd.
HOLLIE: [Laughs] Yeah, not really. Well, for the area I lived in, I suppose. We were more like nuisances’ than anything.
RAY: What are the pros & cons to porn.
HOLLIE: Well, it’s just like any other job to me, except the people in porn are a lot more open-minded. The conversations on a porn set are very different than say, some cubicle-filled office. Which can be interesting. You learn a lot of stuff.
RAY: Do you ever get romantically involved with talent?
HOLLIE: No. Never. I dated a guy one time and it wasn’t a very good experience. He was just kind of boring.
RAY: How often do you shoot?
HOLLIE: It depends. Sometimes I’m booked-solid for weeks, sometimes it’s dead. My agency is Exotic Star Models.
RAY: What motivates you to continue with porn?
HOLLIE: I can’t see myself doing anything else. I’m not the kind of person who can do an office job everyday. In college I took several years of computer courses. Everyone would always tell me that computers were the future — That’s where you’ll make the money. But all I could think was “I hate computers”, so I’m going to be miserable all the time. I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my future, ya know? Nobody really knows for sure. It always changes. I just knew that wasn’t for me. My parents didn’t like that too much.
RAY: Do they support your career?
HOLLIE: They don’t know. I try to sugarcoat it. My mom just assumes I’m a stripper, so I try to leave it that way. I’ve got an older brother and sister. They don’t know either.
RAY: Are you worried they’ll find out?
HOLLIE: It was a risk that I had to accept when I got into the business. Which a lot of girls don’t. They’ll say “oh… I’m only gonna do a few movies…” Or they’ll hide it from their boyfriend, but usually the boyfriend’s friend finds it. I’ve just always been into experiencing new things. I hated high school. I went to a total yuppie school. Everyone would always tell me “wait until you get into the real world… It’s totally different”. But I couldn’t wait. I didn’t want to deal with their ways any more. I was a weird artsy kid.
RAY: Do you think people from high school would be surprised to learn you’re doing porn?
HOLLIE: I think they would be, yeah. I kind of expected people to come out of the woodwork and be like “hey! remember me?” But it hasn’t happened. And I don’t really care! [Laughs] And you know what? I’m never going back to the high school reunions, so it doesn’t matter. I’ve heard the Romy & Michelle High School Reunion movie is basically how it really goes.
RAY: Yep. Everyone looks the same… Just swollen.
HOLLIE: [Laughs] Yeah, and everyone’s all full of shit like “Hey! What’s up! I’ve done so much with my life…”
RAY: Fucking jock assholes.
CAT: Don’t you have any better questions?
RAY: Hey, fuck off.
CAT: Who’s your favorite female director?
HOLLIE: Cat Pee.
RAY: Do you think porn girls are different than other women?
HOLLIE: Yeah, I do. Actually I think porn chicks are more open with their sexuality and they have nothing to hide. A lot of women try to conceal their sexuality. With porn, you’re able to say whatever you want to whoever you want. There are a lot of girls who aren’t in porn who are too afraid to be that way.
CAT: They’re also different because they all have these fucking acrylic nails.
RAY: True. Are you engaged?
HOLLIE: I’m married. But I can’t tell you his name.
CAT: You can’t? He doesn’t like that?
HOLLIE: No. He’s not in the business.
RAY: Is he a rock star or movie star?
HOLLIE: Yeah. Rock.
RAY: Okay. So where can people find you?
