Jeanna Fine (born Angel Gauthiercite web|url=|title= Archives – Tuesday, June 22nd, 1999|author=Luke Ford|date=1999-06-22|publisher =] on September 29, 1964 in New York, New York, U.S.) is an American pornographic actress and erotic dancer.

Career and life

According to Skipp Porteous (author of "Jesus Doesn't Live Here Anymore"), Fine was born Angel Gauthier, and changed her surname to Payson after her mother's marriage to Ron Payson.

She grew up in a small town in upstate New York, somewhat a loner, until she fell in with the stoner crowd in high school. Then she dropped out and moved in with her boyfriend, an older outdoorsman. When that ended, she moved to Albany, shaved her head, and hung out at punk-rock clubs. Her tough-girl beauty caught the eye of a musician who invited her to have a threesome with him and his wife, adult film actress Siobhan Hunter, who eventually encouraged Jeanna to go into adult films. Jeanna's sexual interest in women was awakened and she went on to enjoy sex with many females, such as Amber Lynn, a lesbian, who was impressed by Jeanna's strong personality. Adult film star Barbara Dare remarked how "fine" Jeanna was, which prompted Jeanna to adopt that as her surname. [ "True stories of adult film stars: Jeanna Fine #1" Carnal Comics (San Diego: Re-Visionary, 1995). ]

Fine began in the adult movie industry as a blonde-haired punk-girl when she was 21 in 1986. She claimed that she wanted to take the world of porn by storm, but instead she vanished after 50 movies, which were made between 1986 and 1989.

She re-emerged as a brunette in 1990, only to quit acting two years later to marry fellow porn star Sikki Nixx, to whom she had became engaged. However the marriage never happened, though it was reported that they did go to the altar but the minister never arrived. After her relationship with Nixx dissolved, she became involved in a lesbian relationship with fellow porn actress Shannon Wilsey (aka Savannah) and another with football player Rich Bradford. Both relationships ended badly, reportedly due to Fine's refusal to commit to Wilsey, and Bradford's refusal of committal to Fine. Afterward, she met and fell in love with Jim Bernstein. They married in 1993, and in June 1994 her son Braxton Zachary was born.

When Braxton was four months old, Fine kick started her porn career for the third time. The story goes that she walked into VCA president Russ Hampshire's office, sat on Hampshire's lap, and proclaimed "I'm ready." She was immediately cast in the movie "Latex".

Fine's trademarks are her dirty talking, deep throat blowjobs and her penchant for rough anal and double penetrations, including spankings and hair pulling. In her lesbian scenes she is almost always the dominant partner. Fine is also noted for her faint resemblance to actress Stockard Channing.

Fine was inducted in the Adult Video News Hall of Fame in 1998. She is also in the X-Rated Critic's Association's and Legends of Erotica Halls of Fame.

Fine appeared briefly in the film "The Boondock Saints", as a dancer working the adult parlor where an attack was made on a mafia character played by fellow adult star Ron Jeremy. She also appears along side Jeremy in Trey Parker's "Orgazmo". Although the scene was deleted from the theatrical release.
