Brent Corrigan: The Gay Porn Blog Interview (Pt. 2)
Check out part 1 to see where we left off …
Are you dating anyone currently?
I currently have a boyfriend, and we’ve been together for about a year. He’s my business partner. It’s set up so when I turn 21 it’s all mine. We’re hoping I have other projects going on by then.
What’s he like?
He’s 39. From Texas. He’s got this sexy, thick Texan accent. One of the things I love about him is his horses. I grew up obsessed with them and always wanted to meet someone who I could go horseback riding with. I’ve never owned one myself. I wouldn’t have time for one even if I did.
What kind of guys do you like?
I like all kinds of guys. I pride myself on being the type of person who can find the attractive parts on almost anyone. It just turns out that my relationships work out better with older men because I’m mature for my age and I don’t want to have to deal with the petty shit of people my age. What kind of non-porn movies do you like?
I love indie films. When you start a new business, you’re busy as fuck. It takes up all your time. I’ve not seen a new film in months, but I love the normalcy of them. Stories of regular people. My favorite director is Stanley Kubrick because he pushes the envelope. Clockwork Orange stands alone. In Eyes Wide Shut there’s a provocative thing you can’t deny.
Do you have any desire to get into mainstream film?
I do want to delve into mainstream cinematography, actually. I’m hoping I can bring my adult knowledge into it and maybe bring an interesting angle to it. As far as horror movies go, The Shining is up there with the best of them. You could cut out the gore and if it’s still scary it’s a good horror film.
Do you want to go to college?
I do want to go to school but there’s no time for it within the next two or three years. I can’t see a traditional degree or masters in my future. I’m big on education, but I feel like It will be about the niche and not the credential and the whole reason why you did it in the first place. Some people are there to get the credential and they completely forget that they’re suppsoed to educate themsleves.
Do you think you would study film?
Yeah. Cinematography, I guess. I backed away from it since I got to L.A. since that’s what everyone was doing. But these days I don’t care I just want to do something and whatever I do I want to have fun. I want to be known. I want to look back at my life and have clear distinctions — porn star, modeling, directing (different kinds of film), I think I could make it as an indy actor. I don’t think I’ll make it as a mainstream, but never say never. I have some talent and if you nurture it, it can grow. I’m more into indy stuff because i’m fixated on real.
What kind of music are you into?
I’m into indie music, like Rilo Kiley. Because i’m not spending time with kids my age I’m not into hip hop or pop. I spend time doing research and on iTunes. Sometimes I find old music from the 90s and really like it. [Ed. note: Kill me now.] I like Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks because she’s a strong woman and that’s not too common in society and you have to like it. I like Band of Horses, Rogue Wave. I love Death Cab. They’re from my hometown. I’ve been listening to the Postal Service album non-stop since it came out three years ago. I abosolutely love it.
Who are your role models?
I wish I had more of them in my life. Growing up, I lacked any. I never had a clear positive role model and maybe that’s aided how I got into adult. There’s some people who I admire for who they are: Bill Clinton: he did a lot for us as homosexuals. Maybe not a lot but he didn’t push us further in the closet like our current president. I admire all those out actors out there who work in the business but live their lives openly about their sexuality. There’s so much homosexuality in mainstream media and It’s the worst thing, a shame. it goes to show you how fake everything is. Reality is a big thing to me.
Where do you see your career going?
I don’t want to put my foot in my mouth, and I never want to say never, but if I had my way, I’d be good at producing so that I wouldn’t have to be in front of the camera. I’m interesting in directing. Not just adult film. I don’t want to model forever. Maybe two more years max, and I don’t want to be in the “twink” niche forever. I can reinvent myself.
I already have my own production studio. We’re brand new: LSG Media. We have designs on setting up “Real Boys Online.” We’re not calling it “pro-am,” we’re caling it amateur. I don’t have any intentions of doing any full movies. I think the priority is to get to the meat of what your’e doing — good adult scenes, before you get aritsitc. When it’s all said and done it’s all porn and that’s what you’re watching. I want to get it down, get good at it before I complicate things with artsy productions and storylines and locations. Theme will be a good mix of twinks and young muscle jock. Anything attractive under the age of 25. If you’re an attractive boy, well-hung, and versatile, then you’ve got a good chance of working with us.
How the fuck does someone your age stay so motivated?
It’s hard for people to understand, but the top reason why I continue is because I have my own production studio. If I wasn’t controling how my material was being put out, then I wouldn’t bother anymore. Now that I’m in that positon, I know I have what it takes, so I’m just cashing in on what talent I do have.
I always said that if I ever did anything, i was going to do it right and do it big. If I was going to fucking do it, I was going to do it right. Right now I’d be stupid to walk away from the standing and interest generated in me. I can try it and if it doesn’t work then I don’t have regrets. Everyone does a phase where they regret doing adult, but if you continue, you just don’t care.
