Stormy Daniels

Stormy Daniels was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on March 17, 1979. Also known as Stormy Waters and simply Stormy, she's a popular American XXX actress, screenwriter, and director. She chose her stage name to reflect her love of Mötley Crüe, whose bassist, Nikki Sixx, named his daughter Storm.

Daniels began stripping at a club in Baton Rouge then expanded to become a feature performer in September 2000. While working as a feature she met with Devon Michaels. Daniels accompanied Michaels to her Wicked shoot, where she met Brad Armstrong and co-starred with Michaels in her Sin City scene . Afterwards, Armstrong invited Daniels to stay out with him where she continued doing lesbian-only scenes.

In July 2002, she was cast as the lead in a feature film for Wicked Pictures called Heat, where she did her first heterosexual sex scene, and in September of the same year she signed an exclusive contract with Wicked. In 2004 she won the Best New Starlet. She has directed for Wicked since 2004, and is one of their leading performers.

Daniels was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame on January 18, 2014 and was inducted into the XRCO Hall of Fame on April 16, 2014. Her directorial work that year earned fourteen AVN Award nominations.

She has appeared in several men's magazines including Playboy, Hustler, Penthouse, High Society, GQ, and FHM. She has also written for FHM. Daniels also appeared in an episode of Real Sex where she is seen participating in the 2001 Miss Nude Great Plains Contest. In early 2007, she appeared in Dirt on the FX Network, where she played a stripper who helps to set up a basketball player played by Rick Fox. Later in 2007 Stormy Daniels appeared in Maroon 5's music video for their song "Wake Up Call" as a pole dancer. She appears in the film The 40-Year-Old Virgin as the main character watches her in the video Space Nuts: Episode 69—Unholy Union, and then tries dreaming about her. She also plays a Las Vegas lap dancer in Knocked Up. She also appears in the fifth episode of the show Party Down.

In her free time between shoots Stormy is a busy equestrian, competing in dressage, show jumping and cross country events. She owns five horses, but her show horse is Bailey. In her latest 2015 blockbuster, Wanted, Stormy was able to combine her love for the animals and her career – but not without some unexpected issues. And when asked if she would consider doing a sex scene ON a horse, she repiles “Definitely not. Even I'm not that brave. Besides there were all sorts of crazy rules about how far the horses had to be from the nudity.”


Stormy has earned over 50 awards and 27 nominations for the movie Wanted.
