Angelina entered the porn industry by answering an advertisement in the newspapers; her first scene was for the Shane's World series with Mr. Pete in 2003, at the age of 18. Her stage name is a reference to Evangeline, though early in her career she went by the names, "Angelina del Mar" and "Ava".
She is known for wearing glasses during her performances. They are prescription glasses, as she is "very blind" and has been wearing them since the 6th grade. She said that sometimes directors had sent her home to get her glasses if she arrived on set wearing contacts.
In late 2005, she tried joining the US Navy; she even started the process of getting her neck tattoo removed through laser surgery, as per the Navy's request. However, the Navy eventually told her that she needed an Associates Degree, which she was unwilling to get.
