“Were people asking you all the time?” I asked.
“It came up a lot,” she said, “and at first I didn’t jump at it, but I got more comfortable with the question eventually.”
Rose is pictured above with all her vices on display. As we were in public, I couldn’t get at most of the assets.
At first Rose would pose for free and then, as she got more confident, she started taking on porn jobs in earnest, shooting her first movie in 2007 at the ripe old age of 22.
Perhaps because California is in the financial crapper, I have been amazed lately at how many porn performers can be such Negative Nellies. That’s right: I said Negative Nellies. All I hear are complaints, backstabbing, and concern masking envy. But not Rose.
“I am having a really good time,” she said. “[Agent Mark] Spiegler keeps me working. And I’m happy to do it. I wouldn’t do it if I wasn’t happy.”
“Definitely,” she said. “I didn’t know what I wanted at 18, and I think I might have really become involved in the whole porn lifestyle back then. Now I have fun – it’s a fun job – but I don’t get carried away.”
So Rose is not looking at the world through her-colored glasses.
“And if it stops being fun, I’m gone,” she said.
