Jenna Haze Biography

Jennifer Corrales, also known as Jenna Haze, is a renowned American filmmaker, model, and adult film actress. With a career spanning since 2001, she has become one of the industry’s most recognizable figures, earning numerous awards along the way. From a young age, Haze discovered her bisexuality and developed a curiosity about sex that propelled her into the adult entertainment world. Despite being a former “teacher’s pet,” she eventually embraced a rebellious nature, dropping out of high school at 15 and pursuing homeschooling. After exploring various odd jobs and briefly trying stripping, Haze found her breakthrough opportunity when she crossed paths with actor/director Craven Moorehead, who cast her in his film. This led to a contract with Jill Kelly Productions in 2002, where she predominantly performed with women. In 2005, she became a free agent and began working with men again. In 2009, Haze established Jennaration X Studios, enabling her to produce and direct her own adult-oriented content.

Childhood & Early Life

Jenna Haze was born on February 22, 1982, in Fullerton, California, as Jennifer Maria Corrales. She spent the majority of her childhood in La Habra, California. She also lived in Lancaster, California and Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota. The youngest of the four children in her family, she was raised by her mother after her parents’ divorce. Haze is of Spanish, German, and Irish descent.

Initially, she was a straight-A student in school but in junior high school, her rebellious and wild side came to the fore. She became disinterested in studies by the time she turned 14 and her education invariably suffered. After leaving high school at 15, she was homeschooled and held a few odd jobs, such as a fast food manager, oil change girl, and toy store employee. She even waited at a pie shop and a Marie Callender’s restaurant for a while.

Once she turned 18, she became a stripper for a day. She disliked the notion of being a house girl and trying to entertain men whom she did not find attractive for low wages. A year later, through her then-boyfriend, she met one of his friends who knew adult actor Peter North and director Craven Moorehead at a nightclub in Anaheim, California.

Career

Over the years, Jenna Haze has made contradictory statements about the first adult scene she has ever shot. In one interview, she stated that it was with Miles Long in Joey Silvera’s ‘Service Animals 4’ (2001). On the other hand, according to her biography on the AVN archive, she began her career with a scene with her then-agent Slim Shady (Dez) and Moorehead in ‘The Oral Adventures of Craven Moorehead #8’. Her debut release, however, was ‘Specs Appeal 3’.

She soon realized that she had a penchant for the business. She fired her agent as she thought he wasn’t contributing anything to her career and was just taking her money. Subsequently, she began to represent herself.

In February 2002, she did a scene for Jill Kelly Productions (JKP), with Jill Kelly herself directing the project. Impressed by her work, they offered her a contract. She was initially hesitant as she had offers from other production companies as well. After careful consideration, she eventually signed with JKP in April 2002.

During this period, she became involved in a serious relationship with an industry cameraman and, out of respect towards him, chose not to work with men. She spent the next three years with JKP working exclusively with women. She left the production company in 2005 after her contract expired. She did not renew her contract as Kelly, who is one of her idols, had left the production company by then.

In 2004, Haze, along with Katie Morgan, Dave Cummings, Evan Stone, Jenna Jameson, Jeff Stryker, Annabelle Travello, and others, was featured in an HBO documentary series. In 2006, she worked in ‘‘Jenna Haze Darkside’, produced and directed by former boyfriend, Jules Jordon. In the same year, she started contributing to the magazine, ‘Fox’ as a columnist.

Intrigued by the possibilities available for exotic dancers, she started performing as one in 2006, with Lee Network as her agency. Her 2007 release ‘Oil Orgy’ was the first adult film to be put out on Blu-ray format. On January 10, 2009, she co-hosted the AVN Awards with Belladonna.

Over the course of her 16-year career, Jenna Haze has established herself as one of the industry’s all-time greats. She has starred in close to 400 projects till date, including ‘Immoral Sisters’ (2001), ‘The Taste of a Woman’ (2002), ‘Big Bottom Sadie’ (2003), ‘Spin the Bottle’ (2009), and ‘Real Wife Stories 9’ (2011). In 2012, she revealed that she is retiring from performing through a YouTube video and later confirmed it in a press release.

Besides working with HBO, her first mainstream project was the Jonah Hill starrer ‘Superbad’ (2007). She portrayed a small role known simply as Vagtastic Voyage Girl #2. She has also appeared in the 2009 action thriller ‘Crank: High Voltage’. In 2014, she played Suzy Whitefeather in the horror film ‘Raised by Wolves’.
