Breathtaking blond babe Jennifer Blanc was born and raised in New York City, cutting her acting teeth on the Broadway stage before heading to LA for a turn on the TV. Her big boob-tube roles breakouts included hit stints as Scott Wolf’s love interest on Party of Five, Jessica Alba's roommate on James Cameron’s Dark Angel, and extensive guest roles on many lauded shows.

In 2010 she formed Blanc Biehn Productions with her husband Michael Biehn (The Terminator, Aliens), and then produced and starred in Biehn’s directorial debut, The Victim (2011).

Jennifer recently took some time to talk to Mr. Skin about upcoming projects, her philosophy on movie nudity, and one-upping Danielle Harris with crazy sex scenes.

Sharon Hinnendael Skinterview and a Sneak Peek at Embrace of the Vampire 14179 web

It should come as no surprise that Alyssa Milano’s role in Embrace of the Vampire (1995) is still a frequent topic of conversation here at Skin Central. So we were thrilled to hear it’s being released in the HD glory of Blu-ray for the first time!
Better yet, the cult-classic has finally landed itself a worthy remake! When you are casting a new Embrace of the Vampire (2013) re-imagined for the modern era- but still including all the undead action and sexy scenes of the original- you’ve got to have someone beautiful and talented enough to fill the part.

Enter gorgeous, blonde model Sharon Hinnendael. An amazing actress who's been on our radar ever since her fearless TV debut on the Showtime series Look.

Sharon recently took some time to talk to Mr. Skin about her work on Embrace of the Vampire, what it’s like filming nude scenes, and the first movie that ever made her horny. Hint: It’s a Disney.

Rena Riffel: The Mr. Skin Skinterview 14047 web

Unbelievably beautiful blonde Rena Riffel has dipped her toe into many aspects of the entertainment industry; modeling, dancing, singing, writing, acting, and directing. She put her classical dance training in ballet, jazz, and tap to very good use opposite Demi Moore in Striptease (1996), and worked with legendary director David Lynch in Mulholland Dr (2001). But it’s her role as Penny in the cult classic Showgirls (1995) that has been the most enduring.

In 1995 director Paul Verhoeven reunited with his Basic Instinct (1992) screenwriter, Joe Eszterhas, to produce a towering contribution to skinema, Showgirls.

Showgirls is not just a Skin Classic; it's Mr. Skin’s single favorite film of all time! It’s a brilliantly berserk send up of showbiz excess and American desires, all mixed up with the most gorgeous girls stripping down and giving explosive lap dances on hyper-kinetic sets. Everything is done to the extreme with fantastic effect, including the splashiest sex scene ever filmed!

Like many films that have gone on to be cult classics, Showgirls was initially a flop in theaters, but soon found the right audience in the home video market, and went on to become one of MGM's top selling releases of all time!

Since Verhoeven distanced himself from the film after its unusual reception, it was up to Rena to carry forward the campy charm of the original, and she finally put forth the ripe fruits of her labor with the sexy sequel Showgirls 2: Penny's from Heaven (2011). Rena reprises her role as Las Vegas stripper and big dreamer, Penny Slot, who sets out to become the star of a dance television show. You’ll get plenty of Penny for your thoughts, since Rena wrote, directed, and starred in this skin-thusiastic feature!

Rena generously took some time to talk to Mr. Skin about the production of her epic opus, her scintillating work in the Czechspoitation genre, and the sexiest scene she’s ever filmed!

Elske McCain: The Mr. Skin Skinterview 13602 web

Hazel-eyed, howlingly-hot, screamingly-sexy starlet Elske McCain tore out of Yuma, Arizona like a runaway freight train to grace the screen as a sultry scream queen. After being named Tromette of the month by legendary gonzo schlock studio, Troma Films, Elske sizzled in a series of R-rated romps including Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead (2006), Splatter Movie (2008), and Trade In (2009).

However, it was her erotically unhinged role as the titular Jessicka Rabid (2010) that really had skin fans foaming at the mouth. Elske proved as brainy as she is beautiful by parlaying her experience in previous projects to become the executive producer, casting director, star, and more for the revenge flick.

Elske graciously took the time to talk to Mr. Skin about her plans for Jessicka Rabid 2, her philosophy on nude scenes, and her favorite porno!

Betsy Rue: The Mr. Skin Skinterview 13187 web

All-natural blonde babe Betsy Rue is permanently burned into the memories of Skin Fans everywhere thanks to her scorching hot nude debut in My Bloody Valentine 3D (2009). A film featuring a full MINUTE AND A HALF scene of totally naked Betsy running from a murderous madman. So spec-rack-ular, so ass-tonishing was the moment, that she nabbed herself an award for Best 3D Nudity at Mr. Skin's 11th Annual Anatomy Awards.
She's also brought her charms to plenty of hit boob tube series including CSI, 90210, Bones, True Blood, and the perennial skin favorite Femme Fatales.
Now Betsy is playing a porn star opposite Mad Men's Jay Paulson in the upcoming thriller Lucky Bastard (2013), and it looks like we’ll be the lucky ones considering the MPAA just handed down a rare NC-17 rating for the flick.

Jim VanBebber: The Mr. Skin Skinterview 13159 web

Legendary independent filmmaker Jim VanBebber is known for making genre-straddling movies with inspired stories, real acting, gruesome gore, and shocking, psychedelic sex.

From his first feature length film, Deadbeat at Dawn (1988), a tale of rival gangs vying for control of the streets with bloody consequences, to music videos for the likes of Skinny Puppy and Pantera, his work is isn't for the faint of heart, but guaranteed to affect you.

His most celebrated opus is The Manson Family (2003), a look into the lives of the infamous hippie collective and their charismatic leader. After filming began in 1988, VanBebber stuck by the project through a long and troubled production history filled with budget woes, and the end result was well worth the wait.

The film is hitting theaters in stunning 35mm to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its release, with a follow up debut on Blu-ray in May. See the full list of theatrical screenings here.

So head out to the theaters for an uncompromising experience, but first take a moment to read the insight of VanBebber as he expounds on directing, his latest work on a Vietnam vet horror throwback called Gator Green, and the epic importance of bush.

Golden Goddesses Author Jill C. Nelson: The Mr. Skin Skinterview 12420 web

Jill C. Nelson made her auspicious debut in the literary world with a penetrating look at an infamous porn star in John Holmes: A Life in Inches. The interviews and research for that biography had her crossing paths with such legendary ladies as Seka, Serena, and Rhonda Jo Petty, who inspired her to embark on her latest offering, Golden Goddesses: 25 Legendary Women of Erotic Films, 1968-1985. This in-depth exposition delves into the classic era of pornography, from the onset of hardcore in 1968, to the video boom of 1985.

Jill has chronicled tales of showing tail from superstars of the skin screen like Marilyn Chambers, Seka, Veronica Hart, Georgina Spelvin, and plenty more. Women who have moved millions of sex tapes and achieved long-term staying power. Legendary screen sirens from arguably the sexiest time in hardcore history, who risked arrest and reputation to bring us some of the finest onscreen escapades ever filmed. We could wax poetic on these pioneers of porn all day!

Better yet, if it has always been your dream to meet and party with these Golden Goddesses, Jill is having two release parties this week in West Hollywood (details here), and will be joined by a lineup of legendary guests that will blow your mind and your pants: Kay Parker, Veronica Hart, Serena, Rhonda Jo Petty, Georgina Spelvin, Annie Sprinkle, Kitten Natividad, Kelly Nichols, Sharon Mitchell, Ginger Lynn, Christy Canyon, Nina Hartley, Laurie Holmes, Julia St. Vincent, Raven Touchstone, and Carly Mills (daughter of the late softcore film actress, Barbara Mills).

Bree Olson, Kelley Jean, and Tuesday Cross are Tight: The Mr. Skin Interview 12347 web

We're big fans of rock music here at Skin Central, but we’re even bigger fans of porn stars, so of course we were thrilled to interview Bree Olson, Kelley Jean, and Tuesday Cross of the porn star-turned-rocker movie Tight.

The recently released film follows four adult performers who have never had any trouble getting men to bang heads, Monica Mayhem, Tuesday Cross, Alicia Andrews, and Layla Labelle. With hardcore superstar Bree Olson on hand as manager, they headed to Las Vegas on a quest to become the world’s hardest-rocking raunch 'n' rollers.

After filming wrapped, lead singer Monica Mayhem left the group and was replaced by another adult performer with a great set of lungs, Kelley Jean, who led the band to a victory on Howard Stern's XXX Factor talent competition back in April.

Bree, Kelley, and Tuesday took some time off from turning the whole world on to talk to Skin Central about groupies, the finer points of band life, and their favorite music for getting it on. Rack ‘n’ roll!

Tight Director Shaun Donnelly: The Mr. Skin Interview 12338 web

There are a few perfect combinations in this world: peanut butter and jelly, baseball and hotdogs, popcorn and movies. Now, thanks to director Shaun Donnelly, the newest perfect coupling is porn stars and rock & roll.

As director of the Playboy TV original The Boy Nexxt Door, and now pièce de résistance Tight, Shaun is the go-to guy for porn-based reality series. His latest opus follows the titular band comprised of adult performers Monica Mayhem, Tuesday Cross, Alicia Andrews, and Layla Labelle as they form an all-girl, all porn star, rock band. Managed by hardcore honey, and former Charlie Sheen paramour, Bree Olson, the band members take time off from the XXX world to try to make it as musicians.

Shaun was on hand to document all the wild onstage (and backstage) action as the gorgeous gals adjusted to life on the road, endured crappy motel rooms, rowdy fans and rowdier band members, and explosive (naked) in-fighting.

Now he’s giving us the inside scoop on what it's like to work with porn stars, and more importantly what it's like to watch a vicious catfight one day, and then the tender onscreen makeup the next. Talk about hard rock!

Judy McGuire: The Mr. Skin Skinterview 11325 web

We love Judy McGuire. Not like we "love" Krispy Kremes or girls who wear cutoffs so short the pockets hang out the bottom, but like we love oxygen. Or water. Or unscented hand lotion (the scented kind is just weird). In other words, we need Judy McGuire in our lives.
Judy is the fantastically funny (and filthy) author behind Soft Skull Press's The Official Book of Sex, Drugs and Rock n' Roll Lists, which compiles everything from Ozzy Osbourne's cure for athlete's foot (cocaine, obviously) to 8 bands named after man-milk (Pearl Jam, anyone?). It's a perfect companion for the nightstand, the knapsack or next to the porcelain throne- anywhere where a quick fix of hilarity would be appreciated.
Judy is also a noted sexpert who dishes out advice for the Seattle Weekly's Dategirl column, hosts The Mike & Judy Show with fellow Skinterviewee Mike Edison, wrote the compendium of nightmare dates How Not to Date, and gives a killer faux photo-booth BJ, as demonstrated at left.
We talked to Judy at her home in New York City, where she provided her (s)expert opinion on Animal House, making peace between wives and porn, and which list was just too filthy to make the cut (hint: lots of lube is involved).

Barbara Nitke is a photographer to the stars...porn stars, that is. She's been one of the most dedicated and talented chroniclers of the world of XXX (and later, BDSM) since the early 1980s, and her work provides a rare glimpse into the offscreen lives of these larger-than-life sexual icons.
Barbara is currently raising funds on Kickstarter for her new book, American Ecstasy, a look at her life as a set photographer during the "Golden Age of Porn". We caught up with Barbara at her home in New York City, where she gave us some valuable SKINsight into her process, her favorite nude movie, and why kinksters get a bad rap.

Jill C. Nelson: The Mr. Skin Skinterview 10113 web

Jill C. Nelson knows her smut. As the co-author of John Holmes: A Life in Inches, (now in its 2nd Edition and available on Amazon.com) she's rubbed down every aspect of legendary porn star John Holmes' life and career- and trust us, that's a lot of rubbing.
Now Jill's working on a new XXX opus, Golden Goddesses: 25 Legendary Women of Erotic Films, 1968-1985, for which she's (sk)interviewed the likes of Marilyn Chambers, Veronica Hart, Juliet Anderson, Georgina Spelvin, and many more.

So we've decided to turn the tables on Jill and find out what makes a historian of hardcore tick- and where she scored those obscure 8mm porn loops.

Synapse Films' Jerry Chandler: The Mr. Skin Skinterview 9598 web

Jerry Chandler (seen at left being choked by Christina Lindberg- there are people who would pay good money for that, ya know!) KNOWS his cult movies.

As one of the twisted minds behind Detroit-based DVD distributor Synapse Films, he’s been working for over five years to give horror, sci-fi, exploitation and erotic films the red-carpet treatment that’s usually reserved for “important" cinema (whatever that means). Mr. Skin partnered with Synapse to release the Women in Prison Triple Feature DVD earlier this year (you can read our review here), and we FIRM-ly agree with their mission of bringing the world’s weirdest cinema to the masses, so we asked Jerry a few questions about his life in the skinema trenches.

Christina Lindberg: The Mr. Skin Skinterview [VIDEO] 9520 web

In the annals of '70s exploitation cinema, few names loom larger than Christina Lindberg. The naturally gorgeous (and amply endowed) Ms. Lindberg, who was known for her shy, wide-eyed, "innocent schoolgirl" persona, appeared in 24 films (13 of them nude roles) before retiring from film to become a journalist in the early '80s. A true international star, Christina appeared in films produced in Germany and Japan as well as her native Sweden, and is best known for her role in Thriller: A Cruel Picture (1974), which takes her ingenue image and blows it away with a double-barreled shotgun.

She's gone on to become a respected print journalist and the editor-in-chief of Scandinavia's largest aviation magazine, as well as an outspoken advocate for Swedish wildlife and an expert on edible mushrooms. We met Christina at the Flashback Horror Weekend in Chicago, where we talked about centerfolds, shotguns, and mushrooms (the edible kind, of course).
