Biography of Kylie Ireland
Kylie Ireland (born May 26, 1970) is an American pornographic actress, film director,
producer, publicist, and Internet radio show host.
Ireland was born on May 26, 1970, in Longmont, Colorado, a small community outside
Denver. She grew up a good student until her parents divorced when she was 13.
At 15 she became rebellious, including experimenting with recreational drugs,
until her father sent her to live with her mother, who had remarried, in San Diego,
California. In San Diego, Ireland returned to getting good grades, graduated high
school, and started college, majoring in broadcast journalism. While going to
high school and college, Ireland worked part-time ordering videos for a chain
of video stores, which she credits for learning a lot about pornographic films.
Ireland returned to Colorado to continue college partially in Boulder, Colorado,
partially in Fort Collins, Colorado, and began to dance in a Fort Collins strip
club. One of her first female lovers was a waitress at the same club who would
become the pornographic actress Juli Ashton.
Kylie Ireland chose her stage name after Australian singer Kylie Minogue, and
her Irish heritage. She dyed her hair blonde, and had breast implants in 1992.
She entered the pornographic film industry in 1994, through an acquaintance
with glamour photographer Warren Tang. Her first films were L'il Ms. Behaved,
where she performed with Randy West, and Up & Cummers 10, with Jenna Jameson;
she started at the same time as Jameson. Ireland moved to Los Angeles after
her first five films, and performed in a total of 80 films her first year, before
returning to Colorado intending to slow down her film work.
In January 1995 Ireland was surprised to be named AVN Best New Starlet by Adult
Video News Magazine; she was in the bathroom during the awards ceremony when
her name was called. This would be the first of many erotic film awards. Fans
of X-Rated Entertainment awarded her the 'Vixen' award in 1995 and the 'Fan
Favorite' in 1996. She was named by Playboy Magazine as one of their Top 10
Porn Stars for 1997. In 2001, AVN listed her among the Top 50 Porn Stars of
All Time and in 2005 inducted her into the AVN Hall of Fame.
When her contract with VCA expired, Kylie shattered her "girl next door"
image by directing her first movie, The Whore Next Door. In this movie, she
performed many sex acts on-screen for the first time, including her first double-penetration,
double-vag, double-anal, and gangbang. Since then, she has performed in much
more extreme scenes, including performing an extended fisting segment (including
anal and DP-fisting) in Corruption, a film which was directed by her boyfriend,
Ireland continued to direct, first for Jewel DeNyle at Platinum X Pictures,
then other companies. In April 2006, she founded her own adult film company,
SlutWerkz, which features women directors (and "token male" Eli Cross
as head of production) producing and starring in hardcore gonzo pornography.
SlutWerkz launch was delayed from its planned fall 2007 to sometime in 2008
after replacing the original intended distributors. The company had originally
planned to release one film per month. Since then SlutWerkz has dropped the
idea of physical DVD distribution, and will make its product available solely
on the internet. However as of June 2009, Slutwerkz has not released a single
film under its own label regardless of distribution form, and the commercial
url of slutwerkz.com remains unaccessible and unfinished. Ireland leaves all
current inquiries to Slutwerkz's viability and specific release schedule unanswered.
During her career, she has had dozens of magazine layouts and covers, an action
figure made in her likeness, an exclusive contract with adult toy company Pipedream
Products, nearly 400 adult movies, and mainstream projects including appearances
on the television series Tales From The Crypt and 20th Century Fox film Strange
Ireland is divorced, after a ten year marriage to a man outside pornography.
They had been married three years before she become a pornographic actress,
and she says the divorce was not due to her career.
As of 2007, Ireland lives in a 10,000 square feet renovated 1927 warehouse
loft in downtown Los Angeles, with pornographic director Eli Cross, her boyfriend
of six years. They have seven cats and a dog.
