Career[edit]

Amore worked as a model and host for Playboy TV shortly before debuting in porn.[6] She was discovered on an episode of Night Calls.[3] She entered the adult film industry in 1999 and did her first scene for The Watcher 6 from Vivid Entertainment,[7] in which she performed double penetration with Bobby Vitale and Erik Everhard.[8] In 2001, she took a one-year hiatus from performing, during which she continued feature dancing, and returned in the summer of 2002.[3]

In March 2003, Amore became a contract performer for Jill Kelly Productions.[9] Shortly after her contract with JKP ended, she signed a performing and directing contract with Anabolic Video in June 2004.[10] Once her deal with Anabolic Video ended, she became an exclusive contract performer and spokesperson for Video Team in September 2005.[11] She made her debut for the company in the film All About Alexis.[12] In January 2006, she launched her website, ClubAlexis.com, which was hosted and designed by ClubJenna.[13] In September 2006, she decided not to renew her contract with Video Team.[14]

In January 2008, Amore announced that she would resume performing in boy/girl sex scenes after two years of only working with other women.[15]
