Jill Kelly (born February 1, 1971)[3] is the stage name of an American pornographic actress, director and producer. Kelly is an AVN Hall of Fame inductee.

Career[edit]

Kelly's stage name was derived from the names of the Charlie's Angels characters portrayed by Farrah Fawcett and Jaclyn Smith.[4] She started out as a stripper at the Babydolls adult entertainment theater in her hometown, first performing at the age of fifteen with false identification. After she broke up with her then-boyfriend, he informed the club of her true age, which prompted them to fire her. When Kelly turned 18 she returned to the club, commenting that "they didn't even recognize me."[3]

She later did live sex shows with Tiffany Million at the O'Farrell Theatre in San Francisco,[3] and the two took a trip to Las Vegas to see the AVN Awards show in 1993.[5]

Mainstream appearances[edit]

Kelly has appeared in over 50 B movies, including The Legend of the Roller Blade Seven, Toad Warriors, and Big Sister 2000.[4] In the Spring of 1998, she appeared in Spike Lee's He Got Game.[4]

Other ventures[edit]

Kelly started her own company, Jill Kelly Productions (JKP), in October 1998. In April 2005, following the company's bankruptcy filing, Penthouse magazine paid $1.765 million to acquire its assets, which included the entire JKP back catalogue and nearly 60 unreleased features.[6]

Personal life[edit]

A native of Southern California, Kelly was born in the Los Angeles suburb of Pomona. She met fellow pornographic actor Cal Jammer in 1993 at the above-noted CES convention and married him a month later.[7] Kelly separated from Jammer due to his infidelities off-camera, which she called "the deal breaker."[8] Jammer took the separation hard, committing suicide by shooting himself with a gun on the road in front of Kelly's house.[9]

Kelly identifies as bisexual.[4]
