She shared with i-D: "I've just been looking for auditions and trying to write more. I've been watching more, too, expanding my film education. I haven't been doing anything adult-related at all, and that's a change because I used to fill every moment of my life with that stuff. I mean, sometimes I'll post on OnlyFans, but I actually prefer the lull.

"My life feels so much slower. Porn is such a fast-paced industry, especially the way that people come in and out of it so quickly. Adult film will always have that revolving-door aspect. I'm so grateful for this point in my life where I have the opportunity to take a little break, especially after five or six years of doing it non-stop."
