French fox Ava Courcelles is about as far removed from the stereotypical image of a ‘pornstar’ as it’s possible to get. Naturally elegant, stylish and sophisticated, she’s also intelligent and passionate. And of course she is super-hot, with a beautiful face and incredible curvy figure; if those full lips, freckles and her sexy French accent don’t stir you, I can’t imagine what will!
Ava made her Viv Thomas debut back in March with ‘Look At Me’ and ‘In His Shoes,’ instantly making an impression with her classy demeanour. As a result, she was perfectly cast in current release ‘Vacancy,’ in which she stars as the sexually confident and independent manager of a bed-and-breakfast establishment, who has no inhibitions when it comes to seducing her enticing female guests. I wanted to learn more about this intriguing beauty, and I’m sure you will too…
Ava, please tell us a little about yourself.
AC: I was born in February 1981 in St Mandé, a suburb of Paris, and grew up in a western suburb of Paris, Hauts-de-Seine. My family moved to California when I was 17 and I spent my final year of high school in an American school. Then I returned to France not by choice, but because I was an adult and so I was no longer on my step-dad’s working visa. My youth was complicated. My parents divorced when my twin sister and I were barely three years old. My mother remarried shortly after. We saw our real dad until we were nine, then he agreed to give away his custody rights to our step-dad... I must confess it felt like being abandoned. Even more so as from this moment we lived in hell. We spent our teenage years under dictatorship and psychological torture. At 18, we became independent and started to look for work, to survive. Working full-time to pay rent, food and bills was incompatible with student life. I had no choice but to work, and I worked as a hostess in the corporate sector for 10 years.
Having a twin sister is the best thing life gave me. It helped me overcome the hard times in life. Having a twin sister has only advantages. We have an incredibly close bond, we tell each other everything, we experience everything together. To tell the truth, when she was pregnant, I had a phantom pregnancy. I gained 10 kg, which I lost in a week after she gave birth! This is one of the mysteries of twinning. I am 5' 2" tall, and I weigh 52kg (114lbs).
What do you like to do in your spare time?
AC: I look after my dogs and my man, and I exercise. I watch movies, mainly horror movies. I love them! And I am regularly on social media. I spend time with my family – my twin sister, my niece, my man and my dogs. I’ve got two dogs (an English Bulldog, Rosie, and a cane corso, Athena) and two European cats, Gaïa and Afra, who were rescued from the streets. I love animals because they are loyal and faithful. They are a model for me. Believe me, they are far from being inferior to human beings. My passions are drawing, animals, films, dancing, sport, communication and the passion to learn more. But my biggest passion is my niece.
Why did you decide to become an actress in adult movies?
AC: After 10 years working as a hostess, I decided to stop. I took a break for a month and asked myself: “I love dancing, why not lap dancing?” I joined the team of the Eropolis fair a few months later. This is where I met women who were porn actresses, and I found them more glamourous than the ‘ordinary’ stripper. Mind you, I am not denigrating this job. I love it, but for me combining lap dancing with acting was more motivating. That’s why I joined the porn industry. I am comfortable in my own body so nude modelling seemed very natural to me!
What is your favourite thing about your appearance?
AC: Physically speaking, I like my bottom and my face.
How do you keep in such great shape?
AC: I have been practicing sport for ever, and bodybuilding intensely for over four years and five times a week, training in the gym for an hour and a half. Food wise, I am lucky. I can eat everything without putting on weight. So I make the most of it! But I still try to eat healthy. In fact, I eat a lot of starches, vegetables, dairy products, cereals especially oat flakes, chicken, turkey as well as quatre-quart [pound cake]…And on Saturday it’s cheat meal! I mean fast food, ice creams, cakes and so on! But I drink very little alcohol and I don’t smoke.
Do you like to watch adult movies?
AC: I don’t watch porn. I prefer films that let you guess rather than showing it all. Having said that, I think a beautiful porn film is a true work of art. I admire the work. That is why I only act in beautiful productions. I like ‘smart’ porn. I do watch my own films, but definitely not to pleasure myself. I watched them with a professional and critical eye.
What is your favourite type of scene?
AC: I like scenes with dialogue, in which I get to play a real character. I like playing a headstrong and confident woman. I don’t make a lot of movies. I prefer choosing rather than enduring. I will carry on acting, that’s for sure, but only in movies which mean something to me. What I like in this job is the human contact, the freedom it gives me: I only choose what I like and I manage my career myself. I am free!
What do you like about shooting with Guy Ranieri Sblattero for Viv Thomas?
AC: Shooting with Guy is amazing. He is human, polite and very professional. His work is true art. I think he can reach a female audience just as well as a male audience. A woman can enjoy watching his films because they are focused mainly on female pleasure.
Please tell us about shooting ‘Vacancy.’
AC: That’s exactly the type of film I was hoping to make for a long time: a lot of story and shorter sex scenes. The shoot was truly enjoyable. I got on extremely well with the other actresses. They are lovely women. I already knew Anissa, and she is French so it was convenient to speak in our native language! I played alongside Erica a few months earlier. We had a very good relationship, which we consolidated during the filming of ‘Vacancy.’ I never met Talia and Ena before but I loved working with them. They are both very sweet and human.
Who was your favourite sexual partner so far, and why?
AC: Ian Scott; he is very sexual and is a good performer.
Do you have a high sex drive?
AC: In my humble opinion, I am in the average. What turns me on are impromptu situations. Recently, I had sex with my man in the restroom of a casino during a wedding. I loved it! However, I like everything about sex. I like role-play because you can play several characters and it is exciting to become someone else. FYI, the best way to make me cum is to look me in the eyes when I am very aroused.
Did you have sex with a girl in your personal life, before you did it in a movie?
AC: Yes, once, but I was not that much into the girl. I am not bisexual but I must say it excites me more and more.
What do you like best about sex with girls, and with guys?
AC: With a man I like to be dominated. I like intense and wild sex. With a woman I like sweet, sensual and light sex.
What is your favourite position?
AC: I love nearly every position and my preferences change; at the moment I love spooning because it gives me intense pleasure rather quickly. This position has to be perfect to reach my G-spot!
Have you ever done it in a public place?
AC: Yes, and very often: mostly in restrooms!
Do you like to masturbate?
AC: I love masturbating. For me, pleasuring yourself is essential in order to spend time with yourself and learn about yourself. I much prefer doing it with my fingers than with a toy.
What is your favourite sexual fantasy?
AC: I think I satisfied a lot of them. These days I would say: to watch my fiancé make love to another woman without taking part.
Are you a romantic person?
AC: No, I am not a romantic. I am a passionate person, a lover of love. Actually I never asked or suggested to a man to be romantic with me. Buying me jewellery, flowers, this is not important to me. I am not materialistic at all. All I need when I am in love is the man and his love.
How would you describe your personality?
AC: I am passionate, very sensitive but strong at the same time. Headstrong, determined, I get to the bottom of things that are important to me, and nothing will stop me. I am professional and nice, I hate conflict. However, inside I can feel fragile and insecure, which I know how to hide very well.
What are your ambitions?
AC: I have achieved my ambitions! I signed an exclusive contract with Hot Vidéo [a French adult magazine] and a contract as the ambassador of the [French] social network Socialporn.
Is there anything else you would like to tell your fans?
AC: THANK YOU FOR BEING THERE! I LOVE YOU.
