Ever wondered what it’s like to be Australia’s most successful adult film star?
Well you needn’t wonder anymore as Angela White, who is apparently Australia’s most successful porn star, has spilled the beans on what her life is really like.
On Seven’s Interview with Andrew Denton on Tuesday night, Angela admitted her life hasn’t been totally smooth-sailing and her family struggled with her chosen career path.
The 33-year-old admitted it was “tough for [her parents] at the start”.
Her mother especially was concerned.
“I was never shunned by family, I was never rejected by my family, but my mum particularly was worried when I told her,” she explained.
However, Angela believes her mother’s concerns were down to her lack of knowledge about the pornography industry.
“There’s a lot of myths that surround the industry,” she explained. “That the women in the industry are pimped out or abused or degraded.
“If you really don’t know anything about the industry and those are the only things you’ve heard about it, then of course as a mother you’re going to be worried about you daughter saying, ‘This is what I want to do with my life.'”
Her father on the other hand “didn’t really have much of a reaction”.
In terms of her day-to-day life, Angela revealed she doesn’t like receiving attention in public and is actually quite shy in real life.
“I’m actually really shy off camera,” she admitted in the interview. “It’s kind of a double-edged sword.”
So much so, the porn star struggles to do normal things like grocery shopping, specifically when she’s looking at zucchinis.
“I don’t really want that much attention in public,” Angela said. “I just want to do my grocery shopping without someone looking at me weirdly when I’m looking at the zucchinis, because I really am just wanting to make food at home, and I’m not doing anything crazy with them.”
Despite building herself a career in the porn industry, Angela certainly isn’t a one-trick pony.
In 2010, she graduated with a first-class honours bachelor of arts degree from the University of Melbourne.
So there you have it folks, a bit of an insight into the life of Australia’s most successful adult film star.
