LOS ANGELES—Capri Anderson, who captured headlines as Charlie Sheen's porn star companion in a much gabbed-about incident at The Plaza Hotel in New York City last year, has signed on as Vivid Entertainment's newest contract star.
"Capri is exceptional in so many ways, and we think she can fully develop her potential as a Vivid Girl," said Vivid founder/co-chairman Steven Hirsch. "Actually, we had cut back on our contract actresses program recently, but Capri is so exciting that we decided to reopen it just for her."
Capri was the toast of the web, the leading TV talk shows and the hottest gossip and entertainment outlets in the country after she spent one evening with Sheen last November. What apparently started innocently enough as a dinner appearance with Sheen turned into a nightmare when she reportedly had to lock herself in Sheen's hotel room for protection. In retrospect, her experience with Sheen seems like the beginning of a dramatically downward spiral for the actor.
The 22-year-old dark blonde, 5' 6" beauty with pouty lips and smoky green eyes was born in Van Nuys, though she has spent most of her life in New York and Florida. She recalls a fun-filled childhood with a focus on dancing but enough concentration on studying to get her into the National Honor Society.
While a college student in Miami, she made a sex tape with her boyfriend and sold it to a website to make money. "We thought that a few people in our neighborhood might wind up seeing that tape, but it turned out it was most of Dade County. I totally blew my cover," said Capri, "but it was my introduction to adult entertainment and I can honestly say that it changed my perception of myself. It's helped me become a woman and given me newfound confidence. Becoming a Vivid Girl is a very exciting giant step for me. It means I'll be surrounded by top professionals who will bring out the best in me.
"I'm not sure yet how I'll get to the Vivid movie sets since I have a bit of a problem when it comes to driving," she continued. "So far I've been in 17 crashes and as a result I'm now very resourceful when it comes to transportation. I walk or use buses, trains, taxis, bicycles and every once in a while, I'll get up my courage and borrow or rent a car. I feel confident in every area of my life except driving, and so I'm putting off a decision to buy a car."
Capri said she's definitely the romantic type and loves to be affectionate with guys she cares about. "Of course a sense of humor in a man is paramount because I love to laugh and have a good time. He also needs to be independent, intelligent and have a strong sense of romance."
She works out through dancing and has favorite studios on both the east and west coasts where she can be found two or three days a week. She has an apartment in Brooklyn and is looking for one in L.A.
When she's not dancing, she's playing soccer or baseball and loves to go clubbing. She reads and goes to art galleries for relaxation and has already started a modest art collection. She's rarely without her iPod, which holds a collection of mostly classic rock, jazz and dub step music.
