In an interview, she said, “This has always been a dream of mine. I just absolutely do my best under pressure and doing like all of the things that I love. I never want to focus on one thing, i love to do so many different things at once, like writing and cosplay and mainstream acting and porn, and it’s always been my intention to go back and forth between worlds, so it’s just amazing that the world is allowing me to do that because, in the beginnings, people would say, ‘You can’t do that. Nobody’s going to allow you to do that. Nobody’s going to take you seriously in the mainstream if you do porn, nobody’s going to want to hear your story.’ And I just kept going.”

She also told in an interview how reports worked and demean women by saying, “I don’t necessarily think it’s a conscious decision on the reporters’ part to demean women. Honestly, it’s what fans are interested in, they want to hear about the glamorous fashions and who’s with who. And I don’t think they’re asking men really deep, thought-provoking questions either, for the most part. If I thought that, I would definitely have a problem with it. There is a lot of scrutiny of women’s looks as opposed to men’s, which is unfortunate. I think that’s more the issue, why women are asked more about their looks than men.”
