Driving With Adult Film Mogul Joanna Angel
The producer and actress talks work, cars and her history with embattled creep James Deen.
Joanna Angel is tiny, as dynamos so often are. Still, with her seat jacked up to its maximum height, she is hunched over the steering wheel of her Cadillac Escalade EXT and towering over San Fernando Valley traffic.
Credit Angel as the leading edge of alt-adult: a college-educated bombshell with a punk chip on her shoulder and a Brooklyn-honed business sense. We ran errands with the actress-turned-producer, and she opened up to The Drive contributor (and adult film expert) Nicolas Stecher about fighting her way up the ladder, cars, sex and her contempt for one-time partner James Deen, who’s now at the center of a sexual assault controversy.
It’s all in a day’s work for this feisty, tattooed disruptor of industries.
