This week’s highlighted porn star is the one and only Annie Cruz.
Cruz was born in Stockton, California, to Filipino immigrant parents. She graduated from Brookside Christian High School in Stockton, where she was a cheerleader, and graduated in the top 5% of her class. She then moved to San Rafael to attend the Dominican University of California, majoring in print journalism. In her sophomore year, she transferred to San Francisco State University, but left without graduating. Instead, she began performing in pornographic films.
Cruz appeared on The Howard Stern Show on March 28, 2006. The same year she appeared in a minor role in the film National Lampoon’s Teed Off Too.
She trained as a boxer with one of Laila Ali’s former coaches. She fought and won two boxing matches, but gave up boxing for fear of an injury that might interfere with her porn career.
She also has made several appearances on WEW (Women’s Extreme Wrestling). In 2011 she appeared in Stephen Malkmus’ music video Vengeance.
And best of all? She’s a gamer.
