Porn star Jenna Haze was born in Fullerton, California, spending the majority of her childhood in La Habra, California. She also lived in Lancaster, California and Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota. Her parents divorced when she was young. Having been a self-described "teacher's pet" when she was a child, she gradually turned rebellious. Haze dropped out of high school at 15 and finished her education by being home-schooled. She worked at a succession of low-paying jobs such as a fast food manager, oil change girl, toy store employee, waited at a pie shop and a Marie Callender's restaurant for a while. When she turned 18 she tried stripping for a living, but didn't like it and quit after only one day. A year later she met someone at a club who had connections to the adult-film industry and told her she would be perfect for that business. Intrigued, she decided to try it, and two days later was shooting her first porn scene at a studio in the San Fernando Valley. At first she used an agent to secure work, but soon realized that she could do better on her own and dropped him. She worked almost nonstop until she took a "breather" during the Christmas season of 2001 and didn't make any films for several months. When she came back in early 2002 she was hired by Jill Kelly Productions for one film, and they were so impressed with her that they offered her a contract, which she eventually accepted. Her first mainstream project was Superbad (2007) where she portrayed a small role known simply as Vagtastic Voyage Girl #2. She has also appeared in the 2009 action thriller Crank: High Voltage (2009). In 2014, she played Suzy Whitefeather in the horror film Raised by Wolves (2014).
