Before Alyx Star became an adult entertainment star, the 23-year-old owned and operated her own skincare spa in Portland, Oregon. Star, who made her porn debut in 2019, spoke with AVN magazine in a new profile. Star told the magazine that her experience of being her own boss at very a young age solidified her confidence. She said, “It’s tough running a business. You’re the front desk person, the accountant. You’re the person giving the service. There’s a lot to it.”

But her career span has been a mixed bag prior to becoming an adult entertainment star. Her first job was mixing smoothies at Jamba Juice when she was 16. She said they wanted to promote her to become the manager but she wasn’t an adult. Star said that the Jamba Juice management asked her to get emancipated from her family so that they could hire her in that role. “It was really weird. I was like I love my parents. I quit after that,” she said.

“And then I worked at a Dutch Bros Coffee stand for a few months. Oh and then I managed an apartment complex. That was my first adult job — when I was 17.” There, she said she had to supervise adults who were three times her age. “I think I just grew up quick or maybe I just carry myself well,” she said. “I carry no drama. I don’t involve myself in it… I didn’t go to high school so I never had drama or anything along those lines and I noticed just from observation there’s a lot of that in this industry. That something I avoid at all costs.”

She said that in the adult entertainment world, she has “met some of the most open-minded and accepting people. I feel like it’s a cool way to express myself. It’s weird because it’s on camera for the world to see but it feels like it’s in a judgment-free zone — which is not what I expected getting into it. I thought there would be a lot more negativity but it’s been really positive so far.”

Star has worked extensively with Girlfriends Films, a studio that brands itself as “leaders in lesbian erotica”. Speaking about the company and working with other women in films, she said, “I love females. I’ve shot with Girlfriends Films quite a few times and we like each other and work well together... I think it also helps that I really like girls. Not every girl doing girl/girl really likes girls. So I think that shows on camera that I’m into it.”



 

Speaking about her first time in front of the camera, which was in 2019, she said, “I flew out [to Los Angeles] the week before Christmas and did my first few scenes. Then I went back home and I thought it was going to be just that week. I wanted to just try it — just to like check it off my bucket list — and I really liked it.”

She said that contrary to what she had seen in documentaries and read about in articles, her agents were good people and they eased the process for her. “So that made me want to keep doing it. I was treated so well on set and I really liked it and I was shocked that people really treated you like you were there for a job — which you are. And I get that now, but I didn’t realize that at first.”

Speaking about one of her recent performances, she told the magazine, “It was a silly one but I had so much fun filming it that I wanted to watch it and put it on my big TV in the living room and watch it with friends. It was so funny because I’m like stomping on the guy’s face and it’s totally not what I normally do.”

Star, who was born and raised in the Bay Area, lived in Portland for seven years before moving to LA. And she considers Portland her home. “I didn’t really do high school. My high school had an option to test out. So I tested out when I was 16 and then I moved out like a few days after that. I moved to Oregon by myself,” she said, adding that she chose Portland because it was about a six-hour drive from the Bay Area and she didn’t want to be too far away from family. “So I was like that seems as fitting as any and it was a very like hippie, cool town and it was a good place to start life,” she said.
