Born Michelle Anne Sinclair on May 21st, 1981 in Biloxi, Mississippi, Belladonna grew up in a Mormon household in Utah. Soon after moving to Los Angeles to do adult magazine shoots, Belladonna decided to become an adult actress, and gained a rabidly loyal following. Her most notable physical characteristics are the gap between her front teeth, the Sacred Heart tattoo on her chest, and her ever-changing hairdo. Perhaps her single widest exposure in the national arena was her infamous appearance on Primetime with Diane Sawyer, a "news" production which followed her career for almost two years and which, unfortunately, portrayed her as a victim of pornography. After years of performing for various adult companies, Belladonna tried her hand behind the camera for Sineplex with the Bella's Perversions series. Her then-boyfriend Nacho Vidal introduced Bella and her videos to John Stagliano of Evil Angel. Needless to say, John loved her work, and Stagliano offered her a directing deal she couldn't refuse. Belladonna now releases her all-female smut videos through Evil Angel under the Belladonna Entertainment label. At the 2003 AVN Awards, she took home four awards for her starring role in John Stagliano's groundbreaking film The Fashionistas. She has since received an award every year, either for directing or performance. At the 2003 FICEB Awards, she was named Female Performer of the Year. Fans of hardcore lesbian sex credit Belladonna the director with breathing new life into a virtually dead genre. A true enthusiast, Bella has no greater passion than to create better, more cutting-edge girl/girl pornography.
