Jill Kelly

Happy Birthday today to Jill Kelly!!
Jill Kelly (born Adrianna Moore February 1, 1971 in Pomona, California), is the stage name used by an American pornographic actress, director and producer.
Over the course of her 10 year career, Kelly has appeared in over 420 pornographic movies. While she is best known for her work in adult movies, she has also made appearances in mainstream Hollywood productions, including Spike Lee's He Got Game and Orgazmo.

Kelly started out as a stripper at the Deja Vu in Ontario, California, first performing at age fifteen (although she lied and said she was 18). After she broke up with her then-boyfriend, he called the club up and informed them of her true age, which prompted the club to fire her. Later, when Kelly turned 18 she returned to the club; in her words "they didn't even recognize me."

She later did live sex shows with Tiffany Million at the O'Farrell Theatre in San Francisco, and the two took a trip to Las Vegas to see the AVN Awards show in 1993.

Kelly's first acting role was in the film The Roller Blade Seven. This film was directed by Donald G. Jackson and produced by Scott Shaw. This 1991 action-adventure film is still in video and cable release throughout the world. Jill Kelly went on to appear, in non-erotic roles, in several other films with Jackson and Shaw.

She met Cal Jammer in 1993 at the above-noted CES convention (who had briefly dated Tiffany Million some years prior) and married him a month later.

She served as editor and publisher of Fox (magazine) for several years.

Kelly started her own production company in October 1998. In April 2006, Penthouse Magazine acquired the assets of Jill Kelly Productions, which had filed for bankruptcy. Penthouse paid $1.765 million for the entire JKP back catalogue and nearly 60 as of yet unreleased features.

Kelly has stated that during her one-year marriage to Corey Jordan that she "went through a stage where she wanted a kid, got pregnant twice and almost died twice" with one pregnancy being ectopic. In October of 2004 she announced she was divorcing him.
