Sasha Grey is a name taken by Marina Ann Hantzis, who is now 30 and who has already quit making porn videos. Sasha Grey was born in California in a family of a working class and they did not have particularly big money in the family. When she was five, her parents divorced. So Sasha, or rather Marina, was raised by mother who remarried in 2000. Her father died in 2015.
Sasha attended several schools but was never happy during the school age. She graduated early and started taking classes in acting, singing, and dance. To pay for living and studying, she worked as a waitress. However, she obviously lacked money and figured out that it will be easier for her to realize all her talents and aspirations if she makes big money quickly. So she decided to move to Los Angeles and enter the porn industry.
Her first sex video was an orgy with Rocco Siffredi, and she virtually became famous after it. Her unusual for porn actresses appearance and improvising eventually brought her 13 awards in the porn industry, including the Best Female Performer of the Year, twice. All who worked with Sasha underlined she was eager to do extreme things and unusual things, and yet she approached her work seriously and professionally.
Sasha Grey worked with numerous porn stars in the industry and even created her own agency L.A. Factory Girls. She stated that her parents were not particularly happy about her involvement in the adult movie industry, and that numerous times they tried to convince her to quit. However, Sasha knew her goals and so she decided to achieve what she wanted first. Despite all those issues within the family considering her job, Sasha and her mother are in good relationships.
It is stated that Sasha Grey became noticed as the next potential big sex movie star already after six months of working in the porn industry. She was called one of the most popular young porn stars, and one of the most popular stars overall in the adult movies
