Brett Rossi has built an incredible career over the past decade as an actress, model, writer, and media personality, crafting an indelible impression in each of her performances. The southern California native has possessed a charismatic personality and desire to perform from a young age. At 14 the free spirit followed in her grandmother’s footsteps and became a fashion model, walking the runways for stores like Forever 21 and booking print catalog jobs while attending high school.
At 18, Rossi enrolled in college and expanded her modeling gigs to include glamour and centerfold pictorials for top men’s magazines; by the time Rossi was 22 years old, she appeared on The Howard Stern Show as Miss Howard TV of December – she would also host the December Howard 100 series on his satellite TV channel – was selected as Playboy’s Cyber Girl of the Month as well as Penthouse’s Pet of the Month for February 2012.
Soon after, the adventurous Rossi waded into the world of adult films, performing as a featured star on behalf of Porn Valley studios such as Girlfriends Films, Kink.com, Penthouse, Jules Jordan Video, Wicked Pictures, Elegant Angel and Hustler.
Despite having left the industry in 2013 for around 3 years, the call of the XXX world was too loud to ignore. The in-high-demand performer dove back into the business with a new virtual reality scene for HoloGirlsVR.com and TRENCHCOATx star showcase Brett Rossi is Delicious (which earned her two AVN nominations, Best Oral Sex Scene, and Best Three-Way Sex Scene).
In 2017, Rossi is at the top of her game, with nowhere to go but up. She is fulfilling her career ambitions not only as an adult entertainer but as a one-woman business in a variety of fields.
We had the opportunity to sit down with Brett for a one-on-one and here’s how it went.
RT: What made you choose “Brett Rossi” as your stage name?
Rossi: Long story short, I wanted a boy’s name because my real name is a boy’s name.
Given the widespread success, we feel like you would be someone who can impart wisdom on a new performer. What piece of advice would you give to someone just getting into the business?
Do it for you and don’t let anyone make decisions for you. Don’t ever let someone pressure you to go past your comfort zone.
Appart from a career in fashion, did you ever aspire to be something else growing up?
