Bonnie Rotten (born May 9, 1993) is an American pornographic actress and model. In 2014, she became the first alt porn star to win the AVN Female Performer of the Year Award.[4]

Early life[edit]

Rotten was born in Cincinnati, Ohio[2] and she is of Italian descent.[1][5] She was raised by her grandparents.[3]


Rotten started her career as a fetish model for the magazine Girls and Corpses,[2][6] which took note of her after she won the Ms. Dead Indiana Beauty Pageant at the Indianapolis Horrorhound convention.[6][7] She entered the adult industry in early 2012.[2][6] Previously, Rotten also worked as a model in car and motorcycle shows.[2][5] She also began stripping on her eighteenth birthday using the stage name "Dixie."[3] Her routine as a stripper was to always wear American flag bikinis and dance only to Southern rock.[3]

Rotten has several tattoos, and her stage name comes from a so-named pinup zombie that she has tattooed on the back of her right leg.[8] Her tattoos also include the sentence "Dead Girls Don't Cry" across her belly and spiderwebs inked onto both breasts.[9] The company Digital Sin produced two films focused entirely on her, Meet Bonnie, that was a sales chart topping success,[10] and then The Gangbang of Bonnie Rotten.[10] More recently, much of her work has focused on her ability to ejaculate.[11] She has said that this was a technique taught to her by fellow performer Veronica Avluv.[12]

Rotten filed a lawsuit against pornographer Max Hardcore in 2014, alleging that Hardcore had unlawfully made available to the public a scene the two had shot for the unreleased film Fuck Puppets 2.[13]

In 2014, Rotten reprised the role of Max Candy in the porn remake of Cape Fear and cited Robert DeNiro's performance in the 1991 version as her inspiration for the role.[14] She stated about DeNiro, "I really love Robert DeNiro, and I thought this is a really great movie that he did, and he's such a creep and so crazy in it."[14]


Rotten appears alongside pornographic actresses Asphyxia Noir and London Keyes in the music video for the 2013 song "Kiss Land" by The Weeknd.[15]

In January 2014, Rotten was featured in a music video for the Los Angeles band Piece by Piece along with Terror drummer Nick Jett.[16] The video debuted on Vimeo.[17]

Other media[edit]

In 2013, LA Weekly ranked her fifth on their list of "10 Porn Stars Who Could Be the Next Jenna Jameson".[9] She was also placed on CNBC's list of "The Dirty Dozen: Porn's Most Popular Stars" in 2014.[18]

Other ventures[edit]

In January 2014, Rotten launched her own production company, Mental Beauty, Inc. and signed a distribution deal with Girlfriends Films.[19]

As of June 2013, Rotten has over thirty tattoos.[3] In an interview with Impulse Gamer in 2013, she provided the following list of her tattoos and explanation of their significance:[20]

Rotten has claimed that her favorite tattoo is the one on her stomach, featuring a zombie from the comic book Night of the Living Dead: The Beginning, Issue 1. It was her first ever tattoo and took 13 hours to complete.[21]
