Gianna takes the term ‘If you’ve got it, flaunt it’ to a whole new level! Famous for her all-natural 34D bust, Gianna Michaels has been taking the adult industry by storm since 2004. Over the years Gianna has starred within countless Brazzers and Reality Kings big bust themed DVD series that have earned her numerous “Best Boobs” nominations at the Nightmoves Awards.
You may be thinking; where did it all begin? Well, Gianna was born and raised in Seattle, Washington. Believe it or not Gianna was actually a shy and awkward girl during her high school years and revealed within her 2015 Fleshbot interview that;
“In high school, I was quiet. loner. socially awkward. had two really good friends. I was into soccer and basketball. I had two “boyfriends” but I was so shy I didn’t speak to them or know how to act around them. I gave one a peck on the lips and that’s about it. LOL……. needless to say that didn’t last long…I hadn’t watched porn at all before entering the adult industry…I don’t think I started off as a strong woman in the adult industry. However…. experience, confidence, and understanding myself and my sexuality allowed me act in that manner…I realized my boobs were going to feature so largely in my life my freshman year of high school. I just wasn’t ready for the attention I received at that time”.
So what changed? Well, Gianna divulged during a RogReviews interview (that was conducted at the Adult Entertainment Expo in January 2008) that she began to develop confidence in her body during her sophomore year of high school;
“In high school. I was probably up to a B-cup. In high school, that’s decent. Then it got to be C… It was like, ‘Holy shit!’ Whatever the fuck the second year in is, I started wearing the little shirts and the tight jeans…I loved the fucking attention I got, I’d have to say…They’re bigger now too, goddamnit”.
However, despite the significant self esteem boost that Gianna received due to her natural assets, after graduating from high school she did not immediately begin to pursue an adult film career. Instead, Gianna worked at a hamburger restaurant in Seattle called Dick’s Drive-In and in 2001 she moved to California where she began working as a receptionist.
Everything changed when Gianna was approached by a modelling scout whilst she was working as a receptionist. In fact, Gianna had her first adult film offer whilst she was walking home from work! Gianna told this saucy story within her RogReviews interview, highlighting how;
“I was approached by an agent walking home from work in the steaming hot San Fernando valley. I was wearing a skin tight tank top and sweat glistened in between my cleavage like glitter. lol…. yeah and I didn’t really take it seriously so I blew it off…I ran into the same agent a year later in the same spot walking in the same smouldering heat and he asked me one question………….Still walking huh? lol……. and I said SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!! (in my head of course) decided to give it a shot”.
Gianna revealed even more juicy excerpts from her early days during a 2010 Hush Hush interview. As Gianna puts it in her own words;
“Actually, the porn industry introduced itself to me. I was approached a few times by a couple of different agents randomly while I was walking home from work or just in the process of living my life. It kept on presenting itself and eventually I thought, ‘you know what? I am just going to give it a try.’ I had no strings attached holding me to it. If I did not like it, I can walk away after the first shoot. I ended up not having an issue with it. I loved the fucking money and loved what I was doing and decided to make a career of it for a while as long as it lasts…I thought going in it was going to be a struggle to stay in porn but after my scene it all felt so normal. I wasn’t conflicted in any way by what I had done. I had no guilt or regret or anything. It was what it was pretty much and I decided that I didn’t have a problem doing it. There really isn’t a long story behind it. My attitude was ‘why fucking not?’”.
Knowing that she could simply stop if she didn’t enjoy it, Gianna decided to pose for her first ever glamour modelling shoot in 2004. However, Gianna soon discovered that she had a natural talent and passion for modelling so it wasn’t long before the offers started rolling in!
Gianna Michaels : Adult Film Career
Gianna filmed her first ever sex scenes in 2004 that were featured in Goo Girls 17 (2004) for Rodnievision and Ripe Mellons 7 (2004) for Red Light District. How did Gianna feel about shooting her adult film industry debut? Well, Gianna conveyed within her 2010 Hush Hush interview how;
“I actually did two shoots in one day. One of them was for Rodney Moore which was Goo Girls #17. The other one was for Red Light District at the time for Vince Vouyer in Young Ripe Mellons #7. In those movies I worked with two very cool people. In the first one I worked with Rodney Moore and the second one was Randy Spears. They were both very cool and very comfortable to be around and it all seemed so natural”.
Spurred on by the success of her initial shoots, between 2004 and 2006 Gianna proceeded to star in a wealth of best-selling DVDs and kinky web clips. Believe it or not, between 2005 and 2006 Gianna appeared in over 85 DVD feature releases! If you’re eager to explore some of Gianna’s hottest hardcore collaborations then you’ll love viewing her thrilling three-way with Jenna Haze and Rocco Siffredi in Fashionistas Safado: The Challenge (2006) for Evil Angel that won “Best On-Screen Chemistry” at the 2006 XRCO Awards.
It gets even better; Gianna shared an epic orgy with Belladonna, Melissa Lauren, Jenna Haze, Sandra Romain, Flower Tucci, Sasha Grey, Adrianna Nicole, Nicole Sheridan, Marie Luv, Caroline Pierce, Lea Baren, Jewell Marceau, Jean Val Jean, Christian XXX, Voodoo, Chris Charming, Erik Everhard, Mr. Pete and Rocco Siffredi in Fashionistas Safado: The Challenge which won “Best Group Sex Scene: Video” at the 2007 AVN Awards. Definitely one to watch!
Die-hard Gianna Michaels fans will also want to check out her steamy shoot with ravishing redhead Faye Reagan in The Office: A XXX Parody (2009) for New Sensations. Gianna’s sizzling scenes with Faye Reagan earned her a rave review from adult film critic Roger T. Pipe who enthused via his March 2009 RogReviews interview that;
“This is a very interesting dynamic as the usually dominant Gianna takes orders from her petite friend…This one is worth watching for sure. Faye is gorgeous and once Gianna lets the little redhead have her fun she takes charge. She pulls that hair and talks a lot of shit. Faye responds by strapping on a cock and fucking Gianna half blind. They even get in some tit fucking with the fake cock. These are two of my favorite women in the business to watch… I like the way the movie is shot and the sex is much better than average. Ashlynn [Brooke], Jenna [Haze], Gianna [Michaels], Faye [Reagan] and Alexis [Texas] are fantastic. There really isn’t a bad scene in the bunch. If you like to laugh at porn and have fun with parodies this one is solid with a great cast”.
In fact, Gianna was so popular in The Office: A XXX Parody that she has since starred in its saucy sequel, The Office: A XXX Parody 2 (2010), alongside Ashlynn Brooke, Nika Noir, Sadie West and Jenny Hendrix.
Happy to shoot all manner of boy/girl, lesbian, group sex, interracial, POV, gonzo, soft-core and hardcore content, it wasn’t long before Gianna was featured within her very own star showcases. We recommend checking out G For Gianna (2007) for Evil Angel that won “Best All-Sex Release” at the 2008 AVN Awards, I Love Gianna (2007) for New Sensations and The Gianna Michaels Experience (2015) for Reality Kings as well as her immersive Digital Sin star showcase My Plaything 2.0: Gianna (2010) which was nominated for “Best Interactive DVD” at the 2011 AVN Awards. My Plaything 2.0: Gianna Michaels received rave reviews from fans and film critics alike, with XCritic column writer Don Houston ardently advocating how;
“My Plaything V 2.0: Gianna by director Eddie Powell for Digital Sin was one of my favorite volumes in the long running series, not just due to the wonderful screen presence of Gianna Michaels in what amounts to a tremendous swan song (now that she is retiring from porn) but also for the various upgrades the director provided in the nut busting three disc package so I rated it as Highly Recommended, bordering on making it an Xcritic Pick but for the focus on providing a traditional virtual sex experience instead of completing Eddie’s vision to make it truly outstanding. If you like the series or find Gianna half as appealing as I have over the years, consider this a “must have” title for the three discs combined provide more Gianna fuck for the buck than anything she has released in her career outside of some compilations. In short, you just can’t go wrong with some performers and My Plaything V 2.0: Gianna is one of those times that the starlet carried the day in spades”.
The secret to Gianna’s success? Well, over the years Gianna has often cited her natural look and confident nature as her best attributes. Gianna expressed these views during her 2010 Hush Hush interview wherein she highlighted how she does not fit the stereotypical porn star mould of a thin blonde bombshell with fake boobs. Proud of her natural assets and curvaceous figure, Gianna stated;
“I am not every other chick that is in the industry. There is nothing wrong with any of the women that are in the industry because everyone is different…It is just that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I am grateful for my success and as long as people continue to like me I plan on fucking sticking around”.
Gianna Michaels : Adult Film Award Wins & Nominations
What was the pivotal moment in Gianna’s adult film career? We’d have to say it was her casting in John Stagliano’s Evil Angel sequel release Fashionistas Safado: The Challenge (2006). This hardcore DVD feature release showcased Gianna in a wide range of raunchy group sex scenes (including an epic 12 person orgy!) that won “Best Group Sex Scene” at the 2007 AVN Awards and “Most Original Sex Sequence” at the 2007 FICEB Ninfa Awards.
Another landmark moment in Gianna’s porn star career was her first (and only) anal sex scene with Michael Stefano in William H’s Elegant Angel sequel release Big Wet Asses 15 (2009) which earned her a prestigious “Best Anal Sex Scene” nomination at the 2010 AVN Awards.
Gianna posed as the DVD cover model for Big Wets Asses 15 and her stellar sex scene was highly recommended by XCritic column writer Don Houston who eagerly expressed within his August 2009 film review how;
“The ladies were all in good form and even a guy like me that routinely finds fault with “1st” performances had to admit the gals were exceptionally attuned to working their asses better than many seasoned anal whores. The amount of fuck for the buck, the superior strokability, and the sweet package of extras on the double disc were enhanced by the technical values too, all of which combined to earn a winning Xcritic Pick rating. I can’t wait to see how glorious this one looks in full 1080p on a Blu-ray release, the standard definition version surpassing many of the effects-laden releases of competitors. In short, Big Wet Asses! 15, like Big Wet Asses! #14 instantly became a classic for me that should stand the test of time for even my jaded old porn hound eyes, the kind of movie that gathers a lot of attention during award voting without payoffs or sucking up. Once again, my hat is off to Nutsack and associates for the kind of porn that provides all the heat and chemistry a guy could expect and more, a raincoater’s wet dream. Great job!”.
