My name is Brett Rossi and I have been modeling since I was 14 years old. Modeling has been in my blood since I was a child as my Grandmother was one of the very first Pepsi Cola models. I came into the adult industry about three years ago however I had been working at the Playboy Mansion as one of Hef’s nude painted party girls since I was 18 years old. At the mansion I was discovered by Andrea Lowell from Playboy Radio and I began to appear on Playboy Radio as a regular once I was voted as a fan favorite by the listeners. In 2011 Howard Stern’s assistant, Ronnie Mund found me on Twitter and introduced me to Howard Stern. They then flew me out to NYC to be on Howard’s radio show at which I was chosen to be Miss Howard Stern TV. During that time I also was named Playboy Cyber Girl, Twistys Treat, and Penthouse Pet of the Month. In May 2012 I was named Twistys Treat of the Year- Runner Up and signed an exclusive girl/girl contract with Twistys as one of their very first contract girls for their company along with Emily Addison and Taylor Vixen. By January 2013 I was nominated by both XBIZ and AVN as best girl/girl performer. In May 2013 I decided to cut a deal with Digital Playground and shot my very first boy/girl feature film for the company. The movie featured myself, Jesse Jane, Bibi Jones, Kayden Kross and Selena Rose. When my contract expired with Twistys in July 2013 I decided not to renew an additional contract with Manwin as I wanted to take a break from the industry to focus on school.
What prompted you to join the adult industry?
I had always been a fan of Playboy and Penthouse. I wanted to be one of the very few models to grace the pages of Playboy and Penthouse. That was my goal, so I chased it.
You recently took a break after your contract year with Twistys. How did that break go and how did you decide to jump back into the industry?
Back in May I had decided I wanted to go back and finish nursing school as I only had a year left worth of classes to take in order to finish and sit for the national licensing exam. I also had been working myself to death the entire time I was contracted with Twistys by doing international appearances and tours that I just needed some time to come back down to reality. I was scared of losing myself to the industry like many girls do once they come out of contract. You are so used to having someone hold your hand and tell you what is ok and what is not ok while you are under contract that once your contract ends that many performers go off the deep end. I didn’t want that for myself.
You launched your site, BrettRossi.com, last year and recently announced that you will be relaunching it with Puba. Why did you decide to do a relaunch with a new company and what can people expect to see on the site?
When I signed my contract with Twistys the deal had included that they would manage my website and I would own the rights to it. Before then, I wasn’t happy with how my site was being run so I was happy to have Twistys manage my site while I was under contract. Once my contract expired, I kept my site under Twistys management until I could find someone who was on the same page creatively speaking as I was. I have had a total of 3 web masters since BrettRossi.com was originally launched in 2012. I’m planning on staying with Puba for the rest of my career in adult media. Ivan and I have the same creative eye so it was a no brainer when I asked him to run my site.
I originally was supposed to sign a contract with Digital Playground so when I shot the movie back in May that was why I shot the boy/girl movie which also featured their other contract girls, however things changed I decided that I wanted to own the rights to the rest of any content that I would ever shoot in this industry because I wanted the creative control as well as I wanted to control where to content went. Maybe I’ll change my mind later on down the road, but as of right now I am exclusively shooting for my site and my site only.
You also had another recent release from Digital Playground called Girl Squared. What can you tell us about that movie and your scene in particular?
Girl Squared was an exciting movie to shoot because Kayden was directing it so she specifically requested I be in her movie which was extremely flattering as I’ve been a huge Kayden fan since before I entered the industry. The irony of it all is now she is one of my very close friends. She did an excellent job directing and casting that movie.
What would you say is your favorite scene or movie that you have been in and why?
Honestly? My very first B/G movie would have to be one of my all time favorites because for the first time in my entire career I felt like “wow, I’m not just performing… I’m actually enjoying myself.” That’s not saying because I was performing with a male per say, because I actually feel more comfortable working with women. It just didn’t feel like work that day on set. Girl/Girl is so pretty and so focused on the glamour aspect that it was a nice change in pace to just be told, “Ok-go out there and just get your brains fucked out and not worry about if your make up gets messed up.”
What advice would you give someone that is thinking about joining the adult industry?
Think of every possible consequence before entering the porn world because it will happen. This industry has given me things in life that I probably would have never have gotten to experience in my entire life. I’ve gotten to travel the world and make a comfortable living for myself that people in their 40’s are still struggling to achieve, however I’ve lost a lot in my life because of this industry as well. You realize that the only person you can truly count on is yourself, that you are the butt of every single joke and that you can’t live a normal life. A lot more people watch porn than you think and if you are planning on keeping this profession a secret, you secret won’t be safe for long.
Who would you say are your idols, either in the industry or outside the industry?
I don’t really have idols per say. I have people that I look up to and those are usually the people in my life who influence me to be a better person. I’m all about being a good person and paying it forward so I respect and idolize people who don’t just care about themselves. I admire selfless individuals.
Who are some of the people that you really want to work with but haven’t as of yet?
I have so much on my plate right now planning the relaunch of my new site that I haven’t even begun to think of who I want to perform with.
What sort of things do you like to do when you aren’t working? Any hobbies?
Right now my life revolves around school as I only have 9 months left. If I’m not working I’m either in the hospital working on my clinical hours, studying or playing with my dogs. I spend a lot of time with Dani Daniels, Samantha Saint, Kayden Kross and Karlie Montana. They are my four closest friends and each have different personalities so when I have free time, I like to spend it with them.
Are there any projects or special events coming up that you would like to promote, if so please do so?
The re-launch of BrettRossi.com is going to be sick. That’s all you need to know.
