Annie Cruz (born November 6, 1984) is the stage name of an American pornographic actress and model.[1]

Early life and education[edit]

Cruz was born in Stockton, California to Filipino parents. She graduated from Brookside Christian High School in Stockton, where she was a cheerleader, and she claims to have 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 she apparently left without graduating. Instead, she began performing in pornographic films.[1]

Career[edit]

Cruz appeared on The Howard Stern Show on March 28, 2006.[3] The same year she appeared in a minor role in the film National Lampoon's Teed Off Too.[4]

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.[5]

She also has made several appearances on WEW (Women's Extreme Wrestling).[6] In 2011 she appeared in Stephen Malkmus' music video Senator.[7] Cruz has also been featured in several sex and bondage videos for Kink.com's SexandSubmission.com website.

Personal life[edit]

Cruz is a vegan.[8] She met Jack Lawrence in 2004, whom she married at the Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas.[9] They divorced two years later apparently due to "differences".[10] Cruz previously identified as bisexual[5] but now considers herself queer or pansexual.[11]

Awards and nominations[edit]

In 2011, Complex magazine ranked her at #22 in their list of “The Top 50 Hottest Asian Porn Stars of All Time.”[18]
