Joanna Angel is one of those actresses that no one would ever have thought that she was acting in porn. The thing is that the beauty was born on December 25, 1980 in a religious family, where her mother was an emigrant from Israel, and her father was an American Jew. It is worth noting that in childhood and adolescence, the girl honored all the traditions and observed the fasts, as a true Jew. However, as the star herself says: "at the age of 13, she realized that she was moving away from faith," and therefore nothing prevented her from choosing the profession to which she was so attracted. It is impossible not to say that the girl was born in Brooklyn, New York, USA. In 1998, she graduated from high school and entered the University of New Jersey. After graduating from it, the future star received a Bachelor of Arts degree in literature, in particular, English. During her studies, for the sake of earning money, she got a job at a fast food restaurant. Only then did Joanna Angel set about creating her own website BurningAngel.com , simultaneously working as a stripper. Unsurprisingly, her site, which specialized in alternative porn, soon became one of the most famous and, of course, attracted media attention. Despite the fact that Joanna's career has been going on for quite a long time, during this time she took part in only 50 films. In 2006, she was nominated for the AVN Awards in the category "The Toughest Scene".
