Early life and education
Starr was born in Santa Clara, California. Her family is of Italo-Albanian and Hungarian descent. Starr graduated from San Jose State University with a music degree and plays the oboe. However, she has stated she pursued a career in pornography rather than in music due to her "curious nature" and getting inspired after having watched a movie with Belladonna (whom she later befriended in real life).
Starr wants to study pre-med, with the aim of becoming a gynecologist. Her intent is to work within the adult entertainment industry, where she has identified a lack of female gynecologists.
Starr started her pornography career at the age of 23. She met someone who introduced her to the adult industry in San Francisco, California, but it took a year before she decided to enter the industry. Her initial works were bondage and submission scenes for Internet-based companies. She then transitioned to shooting various types of scenes for production companies in Los Angeles. Starr has appeared as the box-cover model for many movies by companies such as Red Light District Video and Combat Zone.
In 2011 and in 2013, Starr was listed on CNBC.com as one of the 12 most popular stars in porn.Her popularity and work ethic have resulted in a highly productive career.
Starr was a finalist for the reality show America's Next Hot Porn Star, a series set up similarly to America's Next Top Model. She blogs for Popporn.com and writes a column for Fox Magazine called "Adventures in Porny Land".
Starr considers herself a pro-sex feminist. Even though she acknowledges that some feminists consider pornography to be degrading to women, Starr asserts, "I don't feel degraded because it is my decision. I know that if I did ever feel degraded or feel uncomfortable, all I need to do is say no and it would stop. I don't think something where women have so much control in the situation can be considered degrading towards women." She does not label her sexual orientation, but she has stated that she considers herself "more gay than straight" and that she chooses to only "experiment" with men.
As of July 2, 2013 she has announced on her blog that she is expecting a child and has found someone with whom she "can spend the rest of [her] life".
