MCKENNA TAYLOR ENLIVENS GREEN DOOR AUDITIONS – Vivid held an open casting call last Friday for the remake of Behind the Green Door, the classic adult film that starred Marilyn Chambers. The studio’s offices on Cahuenga Boulevard in the Hollywood Hills attracted a full complement of male and female talent, among them reigning AVN Best New Starlet Brooklyn Lee. The actors were reviewed by Vivid staff and 21-year-old McKenna Taylor, daughter of the late Ms. Chambers. McKenna told AVN: "I'm more than willing to do anything that has to do with my mom. I thought the new version of the movie was cool when I heard about it. Whoever comes in and plays my mom's role has big shoes to fill. The movie really started my mom's career, so it was important to her as it is to me. Like many mother-daughter relationships, she was my best friend. My mom taught me everything I know about being a person. She never pressured me into knowing information about her, ever, until I wanted to. She knew it was kind of a weird subject. I knew about her career, though. I knew she acted, and I knew it was movies I couldn't see. When I became older and more knowledgeable of what she was doing it was cooler and more interesting. My friends, when they would find out, it was so embarrassing, but I think at first, I thought it was cool that my mom was a legend; she went through the whole sexual revolution and it was very interesting to me. I have seen some of my mom's movies, yes. She was very open with me. Whenever I wanted to know something, I asked, and that's when she spoke about it. But other than that, she was like 'Whatever you want to know …' I was really curious and when it came time for her that I wanted her to talk to me about it, who better to ask for advice when you're a teenage girl? She's Marilyn Chambers!"
SEX TRACKER SURVEY #4 DRILLS DOWN – The newest Sex Tracker Survey from Vivid and XCritic.com will delve even deeper into the adult entertainment preferences.
