Stacy Valentine (born August 9th 1970) Stacy Valentine is a former American pornographic actress. Stacy Valentine: Childhood Stacy Valentine was adopted by her parents and grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Career: Stacy Valentine adopted her moniker after shooting her first adult movie on Valentine's Day in 1996. Stacy Valentine's first adult media venture was posing for Gallery magazine's 'Girl Next Door' amateur photo contest which she won and later did a spread for Hustler magazine. During the Hustler shoot, she did a layout for their offshoot publication Rage.
Stacy's decision to become a full time adult actress followed her appearance in Coast-to-Coast's hardcore movie, Bikini Beach 4. She retired from the industry following her final film in 2000. Among the awards Valentine won in adult entertainment were The 1997 XRCO Award for Best New Starlet, the 1998 Hot D'Or Award for Best American Starlet and the 1999 XRCO Award for Female Performer of the Year.
She's also been inducted into the XRCO Hall of Fame and the AVN Hall Of Fame. Valentine became the subject for Christine Fugate's 1999 documentary, 'The Girl Next Door'.
As of 2010, Valentine lives in California as a director and model recruiter for Penthouse magazine.
Personal life: Stacy Valentine got married at a very young age but left her husband soon after starting her adult film career in order to pursue it further.
What does it take to be a porn star? And what does being a porn star do to the psyche? The Girl Next Door shows you more than you may ever want to know about the, ahem, glamorous business of the skin trade, and my is it an ugly sight.
The subject of this humble documentary is Stacy Valentine (nee Stacy Baker), an Oklahoma housewife driven to amateur, soft-core photos by her clearly white-trash husband. As many men soon discover, be careful what you wish for: Stacy loves it so much she flies to Mexico for a Hustler photo shoot. Then it's on to Hollywood for a career in adult films.
Starring in such films as Cafe Flesh #2, New Wave Hookers #5, and My Horny Valentine just can't be good for a person, and my how that turns out to be true. Stacy gets round after round of cosmetic surgery, explicitly shown to gruesome effect. Stacy goes to a hypnotherapist to help her feel better about herself. Stacy goes in and out of a relationship with a costar. Stacy screws a rich Frenchman for the money, then rolls around in hundred dollar bills. All in the pursuit of what appears to be her main goal in life: Recognition as a great porn actress.
We see Stacy's heartbreak when she doesn't win Performer of the Year at the cheesy Adult Video News Awards. We see her triumph when she wins Best American New Starlet in Cannes. She even calls mom to tell her the great news.
Filmmaker Christine Fugate's portrait of Stacy, shot over 2 years, is like watching a multi-car wreck that gets longer and longer. She's obviously headed downhill in an eternal spiral, and despite her promise to go into a new career as a makeup artist, it's painfully obvious that it's never going to happen.
The Girl Next Door is a rare cautionary tale that every aspiring actress (adult or no) should see.
Probably the only time we'll legitimately be able to put a picture like this up on our site.
