Check out Abby Cross on
Interview: Hi Abby, great to meet you.
Abby Cross: You, too, thanks.
Interviewer: I think that a year or two ago you were not yet in the adult entertainment industry, but now people all over the world know who you are and love your movies. So what was your first job in life, and did you ever have any idea that you’d later be in this industry?
Abby Cross: My first job was when I was a teenager and I worked at a fast food restaurant, and I was the cashier. I know lots of people talk down about fast food industry gigs, but at that age and that phase in my life as a wage earner I really did like that job a lot.
Interviewer: Okay, so that was your first job. So what made you want to experiment with a career in porn?
Abby Cross: Believe it or not, I found out that the guy who was my boyfriend at the time had done a little bit of porn acting before we started dating. He never told me, but I found out about it when I was cruising around on the Internet. I thought to myself that if he could do it, I was pretty sure I’d be good at it, and so I decided why not give it a try? A year later I looked back on it and laughed, thinking how time flies when you are having fun!
Interview: So he didn’t tell you he had done some porn, do you tell people what you do for a living?
Abby Cross: My family has always been very supportive of me and I know that they just want me to be safe and healthy and happy in life. So if they learn about my career I don’t think it will be a big deal, but I don’t go around advertising the fact. I mean it’s really my choice and my business what I do, but the person I did tell about it was my best friend. She thought it was pretty great and she is proud of me for being brave enough dive into a brand new career and make a success out of it.
Interview: Now let’s backtrack for a moment. You mentioned going out with a guy who had tried out porn acting before you guys hooked up, so I have to ask if now that you are a legitimate porn starlet are you having luck with dating and relationships?
Abby Cross: Totally, I’m with a guy that I think might be the love of my life, and we have been together for a while. We met in my hometown, Austin, Texas.
Interview: That’s great. I guess your personal and professional lives are both on a positive trajectory, huh?
Abby Cross: Yeah, I’m really feeling fortunate. I mean if I had not gotten into this career who knows? I would probably be working as a bartender somewhere. That’s a great job, too. I think tending bar is fun. But right now I am really excited about my career as an adult film actress and I am eager to see where this new journey takes me.
Interview: Who do you like as far as other actors in your industry are concerned, do you have any favorites?
Abby Cross: That is an easy one to answer. I total am a huge fan of Jesse Jane and Alexis Texas. They are phenomenal actors and it would be a dream come true if I can wind up in a scene with those two.
Interview: I know there are millions of fans all over the place who would line up to buy a ticket to watch that movie. Were you a fan of adult movies before you became a porn starlet?
Abby Cross: Not so much, I mean I watched a little bit of it but I wasn’t really that into you and didn’t have any idea how the porn industry works or what that was all about. But I love it, and I have made lots of new friends in the business and hope I can keep doing this for a long time.
Interview: How did you come up with your stage name?
Abby Cross: I like the name Abby, it is a cool name, and when I changed careers and started doing this I thought it was a big crossover, so the name Cross just seemed to fit really well.
Interview: Have you had some time for yourself, to have some free time and fun on your own away from work?
Abby Cross: Oh yeah, I have a good balance. Right now I’m really into getting healthy and working out, getting a toned body and a nice tight butt. But I also like to have a vodka tonic and chill out sometimes, too. I drove down to Texas recently too, and taking a rode trip from LA to Austin is loads of fun.
Interview: I bet so, especially with you in the car!
Abby Cross: I also like to binge watch Sons of Anarchy and my shopping weakness is shoes. I am totally into shoe porn and would love to have a bigger closet and the chance to buy every great pair of shoes I see.
