I had to look twice, but AVN’s selection of Remy LaCroix as this year’s Best New Starlet was kind of puzzling.
If you’ll recall in late June of 2012, LaCroix blogged the following: “I’m gracefully backing out of porn,” she wrote.
“There’s a multitude of reasons to give now, but the bottom line is that it just doesn’t feel right anymore… physically, mentally, or emotionally.
“I am beyond lucky to have had the opportunity to express and thoroughly embrace my sexuality through my scenes and REMY flick. And I’m thankful for all the self-awareness and confidence this experience has forced upon me. Spending this time in my life being hot and spontaneous is something I will never regret. The support I received in my adventure was unbelievable, and I thank you all so very much — most of all, the epic Mark Spiegler.
“There are a few scenes to finish up here in July, but after that I am happily going back home to San Francisco, where I will still be active on Twitter @Remymeow and Instagram @urKITTENrightMEOW.”
In the old Gene Ross rules at AVN, LaCroix would have been ruled ineligible in the Best New Starlet category. Then, again, I would never have allowed the category of Best Free site. Call me silly and old fashioned.
