Julia Ann (born October 8, 1969) is the stage name of American pornographic actress, feature dancer and former Penthouse Pet Julia Tavella; she is a member of the AVN Hall of Fame and the XRCO Hall of Fame.
Julia Ann was born Julia Tavella in Glendale, California. She grew up around animals and developed a love for horses; Julia also took piano lessons and learned to swim "like a fish." At age 12 she moved to Idyllwild, California, where she attended a college-prep school before moving to Los Angeles to live with her grandmother at age 17. By age 18, Julia was modelling, and then became a professional mud wrestler in Hollywood before becoming one half of the popular touring strip club feature act Blondage, with Janine Lindemulder, in the early 1990s. Their success led to offers to join the adult film industry.
Julia Ann debuted in adult films in 1993 in Andrew Blake's Hidden Obsessions, in a lesbian sex scene with Lindemulder. She has been a contract girl throughout most of her career. Her first exclusive contract was with Vivid Entertainment (during which time she worked solo and also made a series of Blondage films with Janine Lindemulder). Later she had contracts with Digital Playground (1999) and Wicked Pictures (2002). She was again on contract with Wicked Pictures in 2006, but in May 2007 she posted on the members section of her website that she had not renewed her contract with Wicked. She has since started working as a make-up artist. Along with Inari Vachs and other female porn actresses, Ann was a host of the Playboy TV show Naughty Amateur Home Videos.
She married adult film director Michael Raven on June 21, 2003, but they divorced in 2007. Besides breast augmentation, Julia Ann also had labiaplasty and a nose job (to remove the aftereffects of a broken nose suffered when a horse kicked her in the face).
In 2013, Julia Ann appeared in a nation-wide commercial for CougarLife.com, a dating site where older women are paired with younger men.
