Out of a field of 18 A-list porn stars, Bree Olson—the award-winning superstar of hundreds of hardcore flicks—grabbed our top honor by a cushy margin. It’s an impressive victory for the cornfed cutie from Indiana, especially since she’s been out of the industry for over two years now! Bree dropped by HUSTLER headquarters to pick up her trophy, chat about her life and leave us throbbing.
HUSTLER: Congratulations on winning our first Strokers Award.
BREE OLSON: Nothing like being stroked to! It’s amazing. To still have such dedicated fans of my work is really impressive. Not many women can say they’ve done something like that. I went into the adult industry full force. I was all over the place. And with me being so sensual and sexual, to express that—and make a lot of money—was really cool. Young, dumb and having fun!
Are you surprised you came out of it in one piece?
Yes, I am! A friend commented on that not too long ago. She’s like, “Wow! You’re still really put together for being in the industry for so long.” The industry doesn’t really change you; it’s whoever you are beforehand. If you’re this crazy, wild party girl, you’re going to be the same way after. And if you’re like me, a typical Indiana girl, it’s going to come back. No one can really blame porn for how life turns out. Everything is what you make it.
Were you surprised you blew up as fast as you did?
