An Interview with Beverly Lynne, Erotic Film Star (part 1 of 2)
Don’t try to compare it to another bad little fad, Mendo Talks to Rather Interesting People from Around the Internet’s the mack and it’s back with something that you never ever had.
Well, kiddies, I got a real treat for you this time around! Well, I think it’s a treat, considering our next contestant has been on my wish list since high school!
Straight from BeverlyLynne.com (may not be work-safe) comes… Beverly Lynne!
Yes, this column’s come a long way since I got the idea that random people with strange websites might make interesting time wasters, but because that would have gotten boring really quickly, we transitioned to people that others besides me have heard of. And since we’ve been in the fast-paced world of celebrity interviews for a while now, I thought it would be nice to kick back and indulge my inner fanboy with someone a lot of people have heard of, and who also appeals to my inner film geek!
Thus, Beverly Lynne: one of my favorite adult films stars, and one of the better actresses of the genre. Her movies are… Okay, I know it seems hard to legitimately talk up someone who makes movies for Skinemax, but hey, there’s no reason to get all up on your high horse. I mean, to each their own, right?
Anyway, where was I? Oh, right, Beverly Lynne. Fantastic actress, and star of some of my favorite movies, including Bikini a-Go-Go (now called Curse of the Erotic Tiki), Miss Lynne has more to offer the world than a willingness to star in nudity-oriented film spoofs, though those are worth checking out. She’s also a good cook, and advocates good hygiene!
So join me on my second phone interview, and her from beautiful Las Vegas, Nevada, as we discuss bouffant wigs, the Philadelphia Eagles, and why cookies are better than laying bricks.
(NOTE: The following has been edited for small talk.)
Before we get started, I was wondering if there was anything in particular you want to talk about, like anything you want to hype, or anything like that?
I’m actually leaving for Los Angeles on Wednesday—I’m shooting a new movie, and we could talk about that—and then I have a premiere of a pretty good mainstream movie that’ll be out here in Vegas in April. It’s going to festivals and stuff, and it’s getting good reviews. I could definitely talk about those if that’s alright with you.
Could we start with the so-called “mainstream” movie, then?
It’s a movie called I.M. Caravaggio, it’s based on the life of the painter. I play someone who was a former top model who’s addicted to heroin, and I’m homeless, and broke, and a prostitute, but I end up becoming Caravaggio’s muse. And in the end when he dies, he leaves all his life’s work to me.
So, it’s a kid’s movie, then?
[Laughs] We’re actually having that premiere at a private screening, April 17th here in Las Vegas, so I’m really excited. It was submitted to Cannes, and it’s looking like it might get accepted, so that’s huge.
That’s pretty cool. You might be able to pull a Sasha Grey kind of thing.
Mm-hmm. I’m really excited about that, and then I’m going back to fabulous Lalaland to shoot a movie called Secret Lives for HBO/Cinemax, so that’ll be out in a few months.
