Once named by Maxim as one of the hottest porn stars in the world, Jenna Presley performed in more than 275 pornographic films, stripped for money, sold her body in prostitution, abused drugs and even tried to kill herself – but now the young brunette stunner says she has found her true calling in life.
“Thank you, Jesus! I found Him, I’m home!” she declared, announcing that she has become a born-again Christian.
Presley, 26, whose real name is Brittni Ruiz, said, “It’s been a long seven-year journey of porn, prostitution, stripping, drugs, alcohol and several failed suicide attempts.”
Ruiz, who struggled with anorexia in high school, was reportedly raped when she was 14 years old.
At the young age of 15, she began a career as a topless dancer in Mexico.
By 18, she performed in X-rated hardcore movies, shooting two and three sex scenes a day for $900 each while she was in college. She won numerous top industry awards for her work.
In an interview with Adult FYI, Ruiz said producers told her she was beautiful.
Upon filming her first sex scene, she recalled, “I felt so loved that day because I was put in hair and makeup. I was told I was beautiful. I was going to be a star.”
She said they made her work relentlessly because she had a very young look. The producers dressed her in children’s clothing and pigtails.
“I already looked like I was 12,” she recalled, adding, “It’s disgusting how they can portray you as a little girl. It’s complete perversion.”
But the industry began to have a devastating impact on her.
“It left me feeling drained,” she said. “I was so robotic, I was like a rubber Barbie doll. I had no emotions. … I was no longer Brittni. I became Jenna Presley. I had an alter ego.”
