Although Grammy god Eminem has recently gotten back together with his ex-wife Kim, the record-breaking rapper and '8 Mile' star spent some quality time with adult film star Gina Lynn while shooting his new video.
Just before he shot the new video for his Grammy-nominated album, The Eminem Show, Eminem went to go see 'Analyze That,' in which Gina has a sexy scene with Billy Crystal. The famed rapper was so smitten that he dropped 'American Pie' star Shannon Elizabeth who was originally going to be cast as Eminem's love interest and flew Gina to L.A. first class.
When she arrived on the set, Gina was a bit intimidated, "but I got there and everybody was nice. He was really, really polite and introduced himself. Nothing like you would expect. He was genuinely nice to me" declared Gina. According to some reports the pair got down and dirty under the sheets for what amounted to a 17 hour sexually fueled video taping. In fact after the shoot, rumors flew that the pair took their "act" offstage.
Now, with her first music video under her belt, Gina is back to her regular schedule. In addition to past appearances in mainstream shows "The Sopranos" and "Third Watch," she does 10 movies a year for her adult film company, Pleasure Productions, dances all over the U.S. at adult clubs, and maintains her own Website, www.ginalynn.com.
I recently had a chance to sit down with the Gina Lynn and asked her to give me the 411 on what really went on with Eminem last week.
Chaunce Hayden: Everyone is talking about you this week, all because you made a very sexual video with Eminem. Are you surprised by all the media attention you've been getting?
Gina Lynn: Yeah, I didn't think it would be that big of a deal.
I think what has everyone talking is the circumstances surrounding the video.
Didn't Eminem dump Shannon Elizabeth after he saw you in the film "Analyze That"?
Yeah. Actually, his best friend he calls "Proof" told me about that story.
What was it about you that made them dump a Hollywood star?
I didn't get into it with them. Although Eminem told me it took him seven hours to track me down because I had no credits at the end of "Analyze That." I just know I was in North Carolina doing a store signing and my agent called me at seven o'clock at night and told me they wanted me for the video. But the problem was that the store had invested thousands of dollars in advertising to promote my appearance. I didn't know what to do because being in the video was a once in a lifetime opportunity for me.
How did he eventually find you?
He contacted Warner Brothers and they gave him a bunch of different casting agents in New York City, and I guess he called all of them.
Eminem could have had anyone he wanted to play his lover in the video. But he chose you. Why do you think that is?
I don't know, it's just so awesome! It's not real. I guess I'm just his type or something. He sent me first-class tickets to fly to L.A.
So I guess you blew off the signing in North Carolina.
Yeah, but they were nice about it, and it saved me that they had three other girls besides me. But even if I was the only girl they had, I probably still would have ditched it and gotten in a lot of trouble.
Just like the lyrics from "Lose Yourself," you only get one shot. So tell me about the video.
I play Eminem's girlfriend. In the first scene he catches me kissing another guy. I'm cheating on him. He runs up and beats the crap out of the guy I'm kissing. That was the first time I actually saw him. Up until that scene they had another guy on the set who looks just like Eminem called Particle. (Laughs) It's funny, everybody thinks Particle is Eminem!
What else happens in the video?
There's another scene where Eminem and I are kind of drunk and we're walking down a hallway and he starts to dry-hump me against the wall. In the next scene I look like a wreck, and he pushes me out of the room and he throws my clothes at me and rips his necklace off of me.
How did that feel? To be beat up by Eminem?
It was really cool! I kept telling him to push me harder! At one point he actually hit me in the head with one of his shoes, and he kept apologizing and asking me if I was okay. To be honest, I felt like he was a little shy in front of me.
The rumors are that Eminem has a crush on you. Well?
I think he does. But you know he's back with his wife now.
Why do you think he had a crush on you?
There's one scene in the video where we're on the rooftop of the hotel and he's singing to me and the wind is blowing in my hair and we're real close, and that's when he gives me his necklace.
What did he say when he whispered in your ear?
He kept saying how much he liked my eyes. He kept saying, "Oh, stop doing that with your eyes."
What were you doing with your eyes?
I had that "Come f-k me look." I'm really good at that and I think I was driving him crazy. (Laughs) He kept saying, "Stop it!" While we were on the roof I went to kiss him, and he got real close and started going up and down my body and then he pulled away the last minute. When my manager asked him why he pulled away, he said, "Oh man, I'm back with my wife now!" He looked really scared!
Do you think he was falling for you?
Maybe. He kept saying, "If you were my girl, I would be so jealous! You wouldn't be doing what you do."
Meaning he wouldn't let you be a porn star.
Yeah. He was definitely into me.
Were you into Eminem as well?
He's so cute! Of course! At one point Eminem and I walked by his hotel room and he asked me to come inside. He said, "Come on in!" But I wouldn't go in.
Because he had five big bouncers around him. They were really big scary-looking black guys! If it wasn't for those bouncers I would have gone in and messed around with him, but then he probably would have called me a whore in his next song. I definitely would have gone for it, though. My guess is he probably already thinks badly about me because I'm a porn star.
Well he couldn't think that badly of you. He went through a lot of trouble to have you in the video.
I think he really liked my look and body. I'm not tall and I think he likes that. He seemed to have a problem with tall women. He wanted to make sure that when I wore heels that I wasn't taller than him.
How tall is Eminem?
He's only about 5'8" and I'm only 5'2". So we were a good fit together.
Tell me about the 17-hour love scene between you and Eminem.
The last scene we shot was Eminem and I in bed together. I was able to sneak a bunch of kisses underneath the covers. He came out from underneath the covers and had lipstick all over him.
They did two takes and the makeup artist had to clean his face off for the second take.
So you finally got to make out with him.
Yeah, I think my manager made him feel bad when he asked Eminem why he didn't kiss me during the rooftop scene. My manager told him that I was upset that he pulled away from me. So under the covers he pleased me. He gave me two good long tongue kisses. But nobody could see because we were under the covers. (Laughs) I mean, how could he not kiss me!
What kind of kisser is he?
He's actually a really soft kisser.
What else did he do under the covers?
He grabbed my ass a lot during the shoot!
After the video, did Eminem ask for your phone number?
No, but all his buddies asked me for it. So I signed a bunch of pictures for them. I have a real round butt and all his black buddies loved it.
When Eminem is just being himself, does he still talk black?
Yeah, all the time. That's how he really talks.
On a scale from one to ten, how would you rate Eminem as a lover?
Well, I didn't get everything from him, but I will tell you that his body is rock hard and muscular.
Would you want him as a boyfriend?
Of course, but everyone would think it was about the money. But I make my own money. The only thing that would stop me from being with Eminem is the jealousy. I couldn't be with a guy who was jealous. Even if I weren't a porn star, I still wouldn't be able to stand jealous guys. That might put a damper on things. It wouldn't be worth it.
So if Eminem asked you to give up your porn career for him, you would say no?
I don't know. I really have fun doing what I do. I love being a porn star! I just love having sex in front of people, plus I don't do that many adult movies, so when I do make them I really enjoy them.
You've appeared in "The Sopranos," and as I mentioned earlier "Analyze That" with Billy Crystal and Robert DeNiro. What was it like working with them?
Well, in the movie Billy Crystal rubbed his face on my breasts! He was all about it! It's so silly. I wish it were Robert DeNiro instead. Plus I had no panties under my shorts in the movie, and Billy kept putting his hands down my shorts!
Did Billy Crystal insist you rehearse that scene with him till you got it right?
You know how many times we had to do it? We kept doing different takes of that scene over and over! I would say he did it about seven or eight times! He never complained once! In fact, he kept thinking of different ways to do the scene.
What celebrities have tried to hit on you?
Pauly Shore and Corey Feldman tried. Corey's girlfriend was right next to him and he kept asking my name and staring at my ass. He wouldn't stop. I really thought he was a geek. He was really rude to be doing that in front of his girlfriend. He's just so sleazy! As far as Pauly Shore goes, it's over for him. I have no desire to be with him.
Finally, since you're a porn star, I have to ask. Does size matter?
I don't like them too big. But I also don't like them small. A normal size is between six and a half to seven inches.
Just checking, thanks.
